Competition # 208

Theory Associates and 5-Year Theory Fellow

TRIUMF, Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, invites applications for several Research Associates who will join the Theory Group in the fall of 2009. The Group's research interests include nuclear theory, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental symmetries, particle phenomenology, neutrino physics, and lattice QCD. The Research Associate appointments are initially for one year and are renewable for a total term of three years.

Exceptionally qualified candidates may also be considered for an appointment as a Five-Year Theory Fellow. Initially a two-year appointment, the Five-Year Theory Fellow would be expected to develop an independent research program in an area of interest to TRIUMF. Based on strong performance, the appointment would be renewable for a total term of five years.

Applicants must have a PhD in theoretical physics, awarded within the past 5 years, or scheduled to be completed prior to the position's start date. The successful candidates will show evidence of, or a strong potential for, the ability to carry out excellent research in an area relevant to the TRIUMF research program. While the positions are open to all qualified applicants, in the case of equal qualifications, preference may be given to a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident.
