Two postdoc positions in theoretical subatomic physics at Chalmers

The Department of Physics at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden invites applications for two postdoc positions: one in theoretical nuclear physics (to begin fall 2019), and one in dark matter particle phenomenology (to begin early 2019). (read more)

From bachelor thesis to EPJ front page

What is the size of the atomic nucleus?

	Hardin and Andy Sproles In a paper published in Nature Physics we use America's most powerful supercomputer, Titan, to compute the neutron distribution and related observables of calcium-48. These calculations also impact the size of a neutron star, thereby connecting objects that differ in size by 18 orders of magnitude.
