TheNuclear Theory Group at Old Dominion University is seeking applications to filla position for a post-doctoral Research Associate to work on theoreticalnuclear physics. The position is available Fall 2019. The chosen candidateshould be familiar with both phenomenological and formal aspects ofperturbative QCD. The applicant must have a PhD or equivalent in theoreticalnuclear or high-energy physics. Thework is with Ted Rogers. His group’s research interests and activities areconcentrated on QCD and hadron structure. This includes: the application ofperturbative QCD to the 3-Dimensional hadron structure; QCD factorizationtheorems; the extraction of Transverse Momentum Dependent distributions fromthe experimental data with a focus on applications at Jefferson Lab and afuture Electron-Ion collider. A strong publication record in these areas ofinterest is essential, together with a PhD in hadron or nuclear physics. 
Job Responsibilities:
Perform Research in Theoretical Nuclear Physics, specifically with QCD factorization theorems related to transverse momentum dependence. This will include writing computer programs to run certain calculations, as well as writing journal articles to explain the methods. In addition, the candidate is expected to travel to present and explain the research in professional meetings such as workshops and conferences. The candidate should be prepared to contribute significantly to the writing and preparation of publishable research articles.To be apply and be considered for the position submit a cover letter; CV; research statement; along with a publication list; and three letters of recommendation to ODU Research Foundation website, http://researchfoundation.odu.edu  – click on the employment tab and follow the link for position #19-002   Ted Rogers at trogers@odu.edu has also requested a copy of the materials.Requested materials must be received by May 1, 2019 to receive full consideration
