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:

  • Commissioning experiments in JLab Hall C after completion of the 12 GeV Upgrade, such as our planned measurement of the K+ electric form factor.
  • Detector upgrades planned by the A2 Collaboration at Mainz.
  • Pion Polarizability Experiment at JLab Hall D.
  • 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 between 2014-16.

QUARK-GLUON STRUCTURE OF MESONS AND NUCLEONS
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 give rise to the observed properties of mesons and nucleons. This has motivated an ambitious program in Deep Exclusive electron scattering reactions, where the system responds coherently to the incoming probe and provides a clearer picture of the inner workings of QCD (the theory of strong interactions in the Standard Model). We lead several experiments at the newly upgraded Jefferson Lab (USA), which will take data with unprecedented accuracy and will measure some of these properties for the first time to better understand the underlying quark-gluon structure of these particles.

We are looking for students interested in helping with the commissioning of the newly-upgraded experimental apparatus, and taking a major role in our experiments on pion, kaon and nucleon structure. Research would include data taking and detector work in the USA, data analysis, simulations and graduate class work in Canada. The experiments are middle-sized, being large enough for you to gain experience working in an international collaboration, yet small enough to be exposed to nearly every aspect of the research work. This would allow you to become a well-rounded scientist, capable of critical thinking, leadership and teamwork in your future career.
