Postdoctoral Fellow at McGill University with nEXO and LoLX

The experimental particle physics group at McGill University is looking for a postdoctoral fellow in experimental subatomic physics to join our local nEXO team. We are an energetic group with members at all academic stages. While every member has their own project, teamwork is a central aspect in our research. We consider diversity an asset and hope to increase it within our group.

nEXO is a next generation neutrinoless double beta decay experiment which is being developed by an international collaboration. nEXO will search for the latter beyond the Standard Model weak process in the isotope Xe-136 in a liquid-xenon time-projection chamber. In collaboration with other Canadian groups, the team at McGill is investigating photon emission properties in liquid xenon. With the so-called Light-only Liquid Xenon (LoLX) experiment we aim to measure Cherenkov light emission in liquid xenon using arrays of silicon photomultipliers. LoLX is a small experiment with the potential of significantly enhancing the background rejection capabilities of next generation experiments searching for neutrinoless double beta decay and dark matter interaction in liquid Xenon. Thanks to its small size, LoLX offers the opportunity to get involved in all aspects of an experiment, including taking a major leadership role.

You should have a background in experimental nuclear or particle physics. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field at the time of appointment. Ph.D. candidates should indicate when they are expecting to fulfill their Ph.D. requirements. The appointment is initially for two years with the possibility of renewal for up to three years. The position is part of the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute.

Thomas Brunner (thomas.brunner@mcgill.ca) is looking forward to receiving your application. Please include a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, statement of research interests, and arrange to have at least three letters of reference sent electronically to Thomas Brunner. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply, and we especially encourage candidates of diverse backgrounds to apply.
