The Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Hawaii at Manoa, seeks candidates for a postdoctoral fellowship in the area of experimental high energy particle physics and astrophysics, to pursue research in the current focus areas of radio and microwave-frequency detector development for ultra-high energy particles, including cosmogenic neutrinos and high energy cosmic rays. UH is currently one of the leaders in several new initiatives in radio detection of high energy particles, including
(1) The NASA-funded Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) project and its successor projects;
(2) The Askaryan Calorimeter Experiment (ACE), developing microwave-based picosecond particle detectors for future high energy physics experiments.
(3) The Askaryan Lunar Subsurface Imager (ALSI) project, planned to emplace a Lunar surface instrument for studies of the Moon's regolith within the next few years.
Minimum Qualifications: PhD in physics, astrophysics or a closely related field.
Desirable Qualifications: Experience with radio frequency or microwave hardware or measurements; Realtime embedded software or firmware system programming in C,C++, python, VHDL, Verilog, or related programming experience in a linux environment is a plus.
Candidates with a background in experimental high energy particle physics or astrophysics are encouraged to apply. Fellowship Stipend is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
To Apply: Applications should be directed, along with 3 letters of recommendation, to the attention of Professor Peter Gorham, gorham at hawaii dot edu . Electronic correspondence is encouraged.
