Alexei Bazavov is theoretical particle physicist specializing in study of strongly coupled theories, in particular, Quantum Chromodynamics. He received his Ph.D. in 2007 from Florida State University. He then was a research associate at the University of Arizona in 2007-2010, Brookhaven National Laboratory 2010-2013 and jointly appointed at the University of California, Riverside and University of Iowa in 2013-2016. Alexei is currently an assistant professor at the Michigan State University, jointly appointed at the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering and Department of Physics and Astronomy.

Alexei Bazavov [**bazavov@msu.edu**] The lattice QCD group at Michigan State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position starting in Summer or Fall 2020. The position is initially for one year with a possibility of extension to second and third year depending on the performance and availability of funds. The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with A. Bazavov at the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering and the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Possible projects span a variety of topics in finite-temperature lattice QCD, as well as extensive software development for upcoming exascale architectures. Close collaboration with the Nuclear Physics group at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is envisioned with a possibility of spending some time of the appointment at BNL.
