Two Postdoc openings at the University of Rochester starting any time in summer/Fall of 2004  for

With the recent approval of both the MINERvA Neutrino Experiment at  Fermilab and accompanying JUPITER Electron Scattering Program at Jefferson Laboratory, the University of Rochester has two Postdoc openings starting any time in summer/Fall of 2004. Both positions involve analysis of data for publication and construction of new detectors.
Interested candidates should send a vitae, a list of publications, a  statement of research interests, and the names of  three physicists (or more) that they have asked to write letters on their behalf to:
Connie Jones,  Department of Physics and Astronomy,
University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627     (Email preferred:
1.  The first is a Postdoc position with the Rochester Electron scattering (JUPITER) and Neutrino scattering (MINERvA ) groups (Professors Bodek, Manly and McFarland)
The JUPITER program will study electron-nucleon and electron-nucleus collisions at Jefferson Laboratory starting with inclusive electron-scattering experiment E04-001 (Bodek/Keppel spokespersons) in Hall C (first data run sometimes in  summer or Fall of 2004, and second data run in summer of 2005) followed by studies of exclusive channels in CLAS Hall B in 2005 (Manly/Brooks). In parallel, we will be building MINERvA neutrino detector (McFarland/Morfin spokespersons) to be located at the NUMI Near detector Hall, upstream of MINOS. The electron scattering and the neutrino programs are coordinated because the next generation of neutrino experiments will need to be making very high precision measurements at low energies, where the neutrino cross sections and nuclear effects are not well known. Understanding the structure functions, QCD and nuclear effects with both electron scattering and neutrino scattering is complementary for both QCD studies and for neutrino oscillations experiments.  see
2. The second is a postdoc position with Professor Manly's group, initially analyzing heavy ion collisions with the PHOBOS experiment at RHIC and phasing in JUPITER and MINERvA after two years. The analysis focus in the heavy ion work is in the area of collective flow, which has proven to be a very useful probe of the collisions at RHIC.  After two years the focus will shift to analysis of data from CLAS in support of the neutrino program as mentioned above.  There may also be opportunity to contribute to the design and construction of MINERvA.
