We have one open postdoc position for the XENONnT experiment. We look for candidates with extensive experience in data analysis to search for new physics in low background underground experiments. The postdoc may also join detector R&D towards the next generation liquid xenon experiment, i.e. DARWIN/XLZD. Interested candidate please contact Prof. Ni.
We also encourage candidates to explore external postdoc fellowship opportunities, such as the NSF-MPS Ascend Postdoc Fellowship, the University of California President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship to collaborate with our group on various projects.
We welcome graduate students who are interested in pursuing experimental (either hardware or software) PhD in nuclear and particle physics. Please contact Prof. Ni for potential research opportunities. For US students, there are several graduate fellowship opportunities to explore:
- HEP Consortium for Advanced Training (HEPCAT)
- DOE’s Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR)
- NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)
We have limited number of positions for undergraduate students. If you are interested in exploring undergraduate research opportunities, please first discuss with our group members (postdoc and graduate students) who are most likely be your direct mentor. We expect undergraduate students to devote 6-12 hours/week on research projects once they join the group. Sophomore students shall sign up PHYS-99. Junior and above shall sign up PHYS-199.
Summer Research and Visiting Students:
Visiting and summer students, usually sponsored by their own individual fellowships, can participate in our research to get experience. For UCSD undergraduate students, there are a number of summer research fellowships available, including the Undergraduate Summer Research Award from the School of Physical Sciences.
