Mateus Carneiro in the neutrino lab

Welcome to Mateus Fernandes Carneiro who has joined the Schellman neutrino group as a postdoctoral scholar.  Mateus just completed his dissertation “Measurement of Muon Neutrino Quasi-Elastic Scattering on a Hydrocarbon Target at Enu of 6 GeV” at the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Fisicas using the MINERvA neutrino detector at Fermilab.  He will be working with Heidi Schellman and Amit Bashyal on studies of neutrino cross sections.  Mateus will be working from Fermilab most of the time but will visit us frequently.

Leah Welty-Rieger got her PhD from the University of Indiana on the D0 experiment. After a year as a web designer she joined the Schellman group as a postdoc.  While at Northwestern she independently applied for and received a URA Fellowship to join the g-2 magnetic moment experiment.  She now works part-time as a GEANT consultant for the g-2 experiment at Fermilab.

We just posted our new postdoctoral scholar position.  The location is most likely Fermilab but we’ll consider people interested in working in Corvallis.


MicroBooNE/MINERvA (AJO-5824)

Oregon State U. – Postdoc

Field of Interest: hep-ex, nucl-ex
Experiment: FNAL-E-0974, FNAL-E-0938
Deadline: 2015-10-01
Region: North America
Job description:
Oregon State University is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to participate in the MicroBooNE and MINERvA experiments at Fermilab. The Oregon State group’s expertise is in data handling, validation and algorithms and our physics interest is in precision measurements of neutrino cross section in the energy regimes relevant to future neutrino oscillation experiments. The position will most likely be at Fermilab in Illinois.

We are looking for someone with prior experimental experience in either high energy physics or nuclear physics, not restricted to neutrino physics. Significant expertise in modern scientific computing and data analysis is a plus.

For full consideration, please apply by 10/1/2015
