Summary of Position:

The Polarized Target Group (Profs. Long and Slifer) at the University of New Hampshire invites applications for an experimental postdoctoral Research Associate. Our group's activities focus on the Spin Physics program at Jefferson Lab and other accelerators. We operate a Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Lab with full capabilities to produce and polarize the solid targets needed for this program. In the near term our group will focus on the Jefferson Lab Azz and b1 experiments, which will probe tensor polarized deuterons to better understand short range correlations and probe exotic six-quark quantum chromodynamic states in spin-1 systems, and the Fermilab polarized Drell Yan Experiment. The successful candidate will take a leading role in this effort, but will also be encouraged to propose and initiate new experiments.
