Michigan State University(MSU) Research Associate-Fixed Term in East Lansing, Michigan

h3Position Summary/h3 The candidate will be expected to share her/his time between a MSI institution and NSCL. During the Fellowship, the candidate will be expected to (even) split her/his time between research at NSCL and teaching at least one nuclear science related course at a MSI. NSCL is one of the worldand#8217;s flagship nuclear science research facilities. The Laboratoryand#8217;s research program is broad: fast, stopped, and reaccelerated beams of rare-isotopes are available to address key scientific questions concerning the creation of the elements in the cosmos, the limits of nuclear stability, the properties of nuclei with extreme neutron-to-proton ratios, and the equation of state of neutron-rich nuclear matter as it may exist inside neutron stars. The candidate will play an important role in expanding, improving and utilizing the world-class experimental capabilities at the Laboratory. Experimentalists often work closely with theorists in the Laboratory and beyond and projects can involve high-performance computing. NSCL is part of theand#160;a href="https://www.frib.msu.edu/"Facility for Rare Isotope Beam (FRIB)/aand#160;Laboratory, which aspires to become the worldand#8217;s leading laboratory for education and research in rare isotope science, in accelerator science, and in applications of rare isotopes to meet societal needs. To realize this vision, the FRIB Laboratory builds on the expertise and the achievements of NSCL as it establishes FRIB, which will extend the frontier of nuclear science through unprecedented discovery potential. NSCL is funded by the National Science Foundation through the Nuclear Physics program of the NSF Physics Division to be a national user facility with a mission to provide beams of rare isotopes for researchers from around the world. Hundreds of users come to Michigan State University each year to take advantage of our facilities and explore the inner workings of atoms and their role in the universe. The FRIB Laboratory is a major administrative unit within Michigan State University, comprised of NSCL and the FRIB Project. MSU is establishing FRIB as a scientific user facility with financial assistance from the Office of Nuclear Physics in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC). h3Required Degree/h3 Doctorate h3Minimum Requirements/h3 style="list-style-type: circle" liPh.D. in Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Radiochemistry, Nuclear Astrophysics, or related fields/li liStrong interest in teaching undergraduate students, and contributing to the education and research programs at Minority Serving Institutions/li liHigh potential for excellence in research, as demonstrated through completed research projects and publications in peer-review journals/li liExcellent communication skills to present approaches, plans, and findings as evidenced by presentations at conferences, workshops, or other professional meetings/li liSolid knowledge of principles and techniques pertaining to nuclear science and experimental research, demonstrated by the preparation, execution, and analysis of experiments/li liDemonstrable experience with the development of computer programs for the purpose of acquiring and analyzing data, simulating detector responses, and comparisons with model predictionsand#160;and#160;/li liStrong interest in NSCL/FRIB rare isotope nuclear science programs/li liThe ability to work with export controlled technologies/li /ul h3Desired Qualifications/h3 style="list-style-type: circle" liPrior experience with a Minority Serving Institution/li liPrior experience in supervising under-represented undergraduate and/or graduate students/li liPrior experience with NSCL/FRIB/
