Nuclear in New Brunswick

A quick post today to alert anyone who is looking for a permanent position in nuclear physics and uses my blog as their primary source for information, that Rutgers University is advertising for a tenure track, or potentially more senior, position.  Tell them I sent you :-)

I haven't had the pleasure of visiting Rutgers University, but I do know some of the work they are involved in, thanks to them employing some of our MPhys students for year–long research projects.  Those students have been physically placed at Oak Ridge in Tennessee, though working for Rutgers, helping to develop the Oak Ridge Rutgers University Barrel Array (ORRUBA).  The included in this post is from a talk by Prof. Jolie Cizewski from Rutgers University from a talk at the INPC conference in 2007.  The whole kit has come a long way since then.

Job at UTK

I've had an enjoyable time since coming back from the Nuclear Structure 2016 conference in Tennessee.  I've been for a family holiday in Spain, of the relax-on-the-beach variety.  To be honest, going somewhere hot and lying around not doing much is not my usual idea of a good time, but with two kids, "not doing much" is not an option, and I spent a lot of time in the sea or the pool, playing with them.  Anyway.  Tennessee has cropped up again and prompted me to post:  I received an email this morning saying that there is a post-doc position available in Knoxville.  As someone who once held a post-doc position at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, I can heartily recommend it as a place to spend a few years.  In fact, downtown Knoxville is considerably more fun that it was 20 years ago when I lived there.  Here's the job advert.  

Since I always like to put a picture on each post, I attach a photo from the one day in the beach holiday when we went on a day trip to do some sight-seeing -- to Girona.
