Post-doctoral Positions in Low Energy Nuclear Physics at NSL, University of Notre Dame, 2012 | Nuclear Astrophysics Magazine | Scoop.it

The Nuclear Science Laboratory (NSL) at the University of Notre Dame is looking for candidates for two postdoctoral positions in low energy nuclear physics. Research activities at the NSL are primarily focused on nuclear astrophysics with stable and radioactive beams (http://isnap.nd.edu/). The successful candidates will participate in the research and development effort in support of the establishment of the DIANA underground low energy accelerator laboratory in the United States. In addition they will be expected to participate in research activities at the new 5MV Pelletron accelerator that was recently installed at the NSL.
