We are looking for 3 Postdoctoral Fellows to support TRIUMF’s Ion Trap for Atomic and Nuclear science (TITAN). Recent TITAN experiments have focused on precision mass measurements either in the Multi- Reflection Time-Of-Flight Mass Separator (MR-TOF-MS) or in the measurement Penning trap to probe nuclear structure, to study nuclear astrophysics, and to test the Standard Model. Current upgrades include a high-purity germanium detector array and an extreme ultraviolet spectrometer to pursue decay spectroscopy in the electron beam ion trap (EBIT). Research includes an attractive combination of simulation, hands-on, and data-analysis work. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for the operation, maintenance, upgrade of an ion trap and/or detector system working in a team of graduate and undergraduate students. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be involved in all on-line experiments and disseminate results as articles in peerreviewed scientific journals as well as presentations at national and international conferences and workshops. Successful applicants will work collaboratively with the national and international collaboration.

Successful applicants will have a PhD in physics either in nuclear, atomic, or accelerator physics or with relevant research experience. Helpful prior knowledge may include high-precision measurements, iontrapping techniques, beam transport/dynamics, charge breeding, ultra-high vacuum systems, electrostatic optics, cryogenic systems, electronics, instrumentation, data acquisition, programming, and data analysis. Communication and teamwork are critical skills.

TRIUMF is located on the south campus of the University of British Columbia, in the heart of Pacific Spirit Park in Vancouver, BC. We offer a competitive total compensation package, including comprehensive benefits, an attractive salary, as well as an excellent opportunity to enhance your career portfolio in a high-profile national research facility.
