FRIB Theory Alliance seeks candidates for FRIB Theory Fellowship

The FRIB Theory Alliance is seeking outstanding candidates for an FRIB Theory Fellowship. The successful candidate will conduct independent or collaborative research at a Partner Institution on nuclear structure, astrophysics, and/or fundamental symmetries relevant to the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The FRIB Theory Alliance is a consortium of universities and national laboratories actively engaged in theoretical research in FRIB science. FRIB will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the DOE Office of Science and operated by Michigan State University (MSU).

The FRIB Theory Fellowship is a two-year position with the possibility of renewal for a maximum of five years. The initial stipend is $75,000 and this position has an annual travel budget of up to $5,000. This FRIB Theory Fellow will be an employee of MSU stationed at a Partner Institution by mutual agreement. The successful candidate must demonstrate great promise for high scientific achievement in FRIB science and is expected to advance into open faculty or permanent staff positions in the field within five years of their initial appointment.

The Partner Institutions and host contact information are:

For immediate consideration, send resume, research statement, publication list, and names and contact information for three references to Dr. Erich Ormand, chair of the national FRIB Theory Fellow search committee (academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9840). Applicants should also communicate their interest with specific Partner Institutions listed above.

The deadline for applications is 27 October.
