RESEARCH SCIENTIST/ENGINEER 4
|As a UW employee, you have a unique opportunity to change lives on our campuses, in our state and around the world. UW employees offer their boundless energy, creative problem-solving skills and dedication to build stronger minds and a healthier world.
UW faculty and staff also enjoy outstanding benefits, professional growth opportunities and unique resources in an environment noted for diversity, intellectual excitement, artistic pursuits and natural beauty.
The Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics (CENPA) has an outstanding opportunity for a Research Scientist/Engineer 4.
CENPA is a fertile environment for experimental nuclear physics in the area of Fundamental Symmetries and Neutrinos, in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. The Project 8 and He6-CRES experiments run locally in our lab. They are both advancing new techniques for nuclear beta spectroscopy based on measuring the cyclotron radiation emitted by betas in a magnetic field. The radiation frequency is in the microwave range, so the associated data acquisition systems are similar to those employed in radio-wave astronomy or HEP experiments. The Research Scientist/Engineer 4 would bring experience in such DAQ systems to the CENPA projects and would be a fully collaborative scientific member of the team.
Many other experiments are developed at CENPA, including LEGEND, KATRIN, Selena, DAMIC, COHERENT, Muon g-2, MuSun, PIONEER, ADMX, searches for deviations of the laws of gravity, and others. The Research Scientist/Engineer 4 may develop activities within those other experiments, as opportunities and needs arise.
