Foundations of the nuclear force, nuclear structure and dynamics

A collaboration between scientists of Australian (University of Adelaide and Australian National University in Canberra), French (CEA-Saclay) and US (University of Tennessee) laboratories has obtained an Australian Research Center Discovery Grant for three years to investigate the “Foundations of the nuclear force, nuclear structure and dynamics”.
This project aims to investigate a profound problem in physics: the structure and interactions of atomic nuclei in terms of their microscopic constituents.
It is expected to improve our understanding of the structure and dynamics of nuclei, their formation in the cosmos, neutron star properties, and underpins future nuclear technologies.
The collaboration, led by Prof. Anthony Thomas, is seeking a Research Associate to work in the Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) in Adelaide.
This position will be of interest to theorists working in nuclear theory and the project will be focused on the development of the Quark Meson Coupling model and its application to nuclear structure and reactions as well as neutron stars.
