Search for New Faculty Begins
The Department of Physics and Center for Neutrino Physics at Virginia Tech are seeking candidates for a tenure-track position in the areas of experimental particle and nuclear physics. The Center has existing experimental research strengths in neutrino physics, heavy-flavor physics, weak interaction physics, and nucleon structure physics. Candidates who would complement or extend existing research areas are particularly encouraged to apply.
The Center for Neutrino Physics has a variety of experimental and theoretical research initiatives, and runs the Kimballton Underground Research Facility (KURF) as a resource for the wider neutrino and low-background research community. In addition to neutrinos, the work of the Center’s members includes electron scattering physics, e+e- collider physics, particle astrophysics, and string theory. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent in physics or a closely related field, and postdoctoral experience. Questions regarding the position can be directed to the Search Committee via Ms. Erin Rust at email@example.com.
[Tel: (540) 231-8743].

Eleventh Applied Antineutrino Physics workshop to be hosted by Virginia Tech
The Center for Neutrino Physics will be hosting the eleventh Applied Antineutrino Physics workshop December 7-8, 2015, at the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington, Virginia. CNP faculty member Patrick Huber will be chairing the local organizing committee.
This annual conference is focused on the applications of neutrinos in fields such as nuclear non-proliferation and geophysics. Past conferences have been held in Paris (2014), Seoul (2013), Hawaii (2012, 2005 and 2004), Vienna (2011), Sendai (2010), Angra, Brazil (2009), Paris (2007), and Livermore, CA (2006).
The Virginia Tech Research Center
in Arlington is unique in that it is close to government agencies such as DOE, NSF, DARPA, and ONR. Participation at the conference will be limited to approximately 60. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
