Your tasks
Working within the “Nuclear and Particle Physics (NPP)” group, you will:

  • Act as co-responsible for the LOHENGRIN instrument (recoil separator of fission products)
  • Act as co-responsible for the FIPPS instrument (FIssion Product Prompt gamma ray Spectrometer)
  • Support visiting scientists with their fission and gamma ray spectroscopy experiments, and act as Local Contact
  • Pursue your personal research programme in nuclear physics
  • Establish new scientific collaborations for nuclear physics instruments by promoting neutron-induced reactions and nuclear spectroscopy at ILL
  • Contribute to new developments of nuclear physics instrumentation in the NPP-group
  • Contribute to the processing and interpretation of experimental data
  • Supervise Master’s and PhD students in nuclear physics working on ILL’s instruments.

You will receive training on the recoil separator LOHENGRIN and the gamma-ray spectroscopy programme at FIPPS, allowing you to familiarise yourself fully with the scientific possibilities of the entire instrument suite for experiments involving fission and other neutron-induced reactions.
Further information can be obtained by contacting the Head of the NPP group: Dr. Michael Jentschel - e-mail: (please do not send your application to this address).
