Post-doctoral Research Fellows:

Our group's research projects have expanded in scope in recent years to take advantage of the many scientific opportunities that are available. We are particularly interested in recent Ph.D. graduates who can secure funding through the NSERC postdoctoral fellowship program. Please visit the
NSERC website for more information on the various types of fellowships that are available, or contact Dr. Huber directly.

Research projects that you could make major contributions to include:

  • Experiments in JLab Hall C, such as our planned measurement of the K+ and pi+ electric form factors.
  • Detector prototyping for the Solenoidal Large Intensity Detector (SoLID) at JLab.
  • Experiments on proton and neutron polarizabilities at the Mainz Microtron in Germany.
  • Feasiblity studies of exclusive meson production high at Q2 at a future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC).


Graduate Students:

We expect two new Ph.D. student openings in our group in the coming year.

One of the top 10 unsolved problems in physics is the nature of the strong force where quark confinement dominates. I.E. it is poorly understood how quark and gluon interactions lead to the observed structure of nuclear matter. We are seeking motivated graduate students to join our experiments, which will take data with unprecedented accuracy, leading to a better understanding of the underlying quark-gluon structure of these particles. The research involves highly-ranked experiments of pion, kaon form factors at Jefferson Laboratory (USA), and of proton, neutron polarizabilities at Mainz Microtron (Germany). We are also contributing detectors for the Solenoidal Large Intensity Device (SoLID) at Jefferson Lab, and performing studies for a future Electron-Ion Collider. The UofR graduate program enables students to quickly start their research upon admission, acquiring significant computing and hardware skills, leading to well-rounded scientists, with good critical thinking, leadership and teamwork skills.
