To conduct research in theoretical nuclear physics with an emphasis on the theory of relativistic heavy ion collisions and transport theory.
Duties & Responsibilities:
Responsible for contributing to Nuclear Theory DOE grant. This involves research on effective field theory, the nuclear many body problem, computational nuclear physics, heavy ion physics, and transport theory. Projects involve the development of new methods for equilibrium and non-equilibrium many body problems, implementing these methods using new computational strategies, and comparing the results to data taken at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Radioactive Beam Facilities, or Thomas Jefferson National Laboratory. Successful candidates are also expected to assist in writing grant applications, and co-advising graduate and undergraduate students.
Postdoctoral scholar will meet frequently with Dr. Schaefer to discuss best practices in grant writing, manuscript preparation, and mentoring. Inclusiveness and diversity are critical to the success of the College of Sciences and the University. The selected candidate will be expected to foster an environment that is supportive and welcoming of all groups.
