Competition # 945

Research Scientist

TRIUMF, Canada's national research facility for particle and nuclear physics, is currently accepting applications for a Research Scientist in the Theory Group who will provide broad scientific leadership for the ISAC program. ISAC is TRIUMF's Isotope Separator Accelerator which provides the world's most intense low-energy beams of light radioactive isotopes. These beams are used for fore-front experiments in nuclear physics and astrophysics, and for high precision symmetry tests of the standard model of particle physics.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. and post-doctoral or faculty experience in nuclear physics or astrophysics, and a strong research record over several years as evidenced by articles in peer-reviewed journals and talks at international conferences. In addition to carrying out a sustained independent research program, this person will supervise Research Associates and participate in activities which connect the Theory Group to the overall TRIUMF research program.

This is a full time research position leading to a continuing appointment and is considered equivalent to a faculty position at a Canadian university including eligibility to apply for NSERC peer-reviewed funding. Adjunct professor status, teaching courses and supervising graduate students can be arranged through TRIUMF's affiliated universities. Salary will be commensurate with education and depth of experience.

Applicants should submit a CV, including a list of publications and summary of scientific interests, and also arrange to have four reference letters sent under separate cover. Consideration of applications will begin December 31st, 2004, and continue until the position is filled. Please note that in the event where two final applicants are equally qualified and one is a Canadian Citizen or permanent resident, this may be a deciding factor in the final decision.

TRIUMF is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace, and we welcome applications from all qualified candidates. Your complete application package should be submitted by email to and will include the following in one complete PDF file:

Applications will be accepted until 2005-08-21
