Outstanding candidates at the rank of Associate Professor or Professor may also be considered for a
tenure-track or tenured position. Rank and salary will be commensurate with experience and

Preference will be given to candidates with expertise in any area of Nuclear and Particle Physics who
will complement the Department's strengths. These strengths include, but are not limited to,
fundamental symmetry tests and searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model. The
Department seeks a scholar with a Ph.D. and relevant postdoctoral experience in Nuclear or Particle
Physics. Duties will include undergraduate teaching, graduate teaching and supervision, research and
service-related activities. The successful candidate will have a track record of high-quality research
contributions and peer assessed publications; potential to establish an independent, externally

teaching and/or mentoring will be considered a plus.

The subatomic physics group at the University of Manitoba has a long history of leadership roles in
nuclear and particle physics laboratories around the world, including in Canada, the USA, Japan, and
Germany. The current efforts in the group include the MOLLER experiment at Jefferson Laboratory,
the P2 experiment at the MAMI facility in Mainz, Germany, R&D work for ChiralBelle at SuperKEKb
and the Electron-Ion-Collider, the Francium Experiment and the Ultra-Cold neutron experiment
(TUCAN) at TRIUMF, as well as the precision neutron beta-decay experiment Nab, at Oak Ridge
National Laboratory. The Jefferson Lab group has recently obtained a combined $4M grant from the
Canadian Foundation for Innovation and Research Manitoba to build a major portion of the detectors
for the MOLLER experiment and we seek to strengthen this effort, while expanding our involvement
in the other efforts above and welcoming new impulses and directions.

The Department currently has 22 full time tenured and tenure track faculty members and
2 Instructors, and offers a full range of both undergraduate and graduate programs in
Subatomic Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Astronomy and Astrophysics and Biological and
Medical Physics. Research groups in the Department are well established and equipped, with
additional support provided by strong research links with other University of Manitoba units including
Electrical and Computer Engineering, Biological Sciences and the Manitoba Institute for Materials.
High performance computing clusters exist in-house, and additional facilities are available through
Compute Canada. Further information about the Department can be obtained from
