How to Work With Us

The University Radioactive Ion Beam (UNIRIB) Consortium offers opportunities for participants to perform basic research on rare, short-lived atomic nuclei. Scientists in disciplines such as physical sciences, nuclear physics and nuclear chemistry take part in the work of the consortium at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF).

By creating a university atmosphere within the structure of a national laboratory, UNIRIB’s distinguished staff provide dedicated experimental support, as well as guide the training of students—from undergraduates to postdocs. Opportunities also exist for faculty to spend time at UNIRIB, including extended visits and sabbaticals.

UNIRIB is funded through membership fees and research grants provided by the U.S. Department of Energy. These funds are used to support on-site staff at HRIBF, as well as specialized equipment required for research.
