The new position will complement present research strengths of our 6-person nuclear group spanning heavy-ion collisions at RHIC (the STAR experiment), hadron structure experiments at JLab and Mainz, and theoretical modeling of QCD for hadron physics. Successful candidates are expected to excel in teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and to establish a productive research program that attracts external funding.
