Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Nuclear Physics
The successful candidate will join the ERC funded LISA project. "Lifetime measurements with Solid Active targets" is a novel approach to study collective excitations in atomic nuclei. Active targets enhance the sensitivity and resolution for in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments enabling lifetime measurements of exotic rare isotopes.
The successful candidate:
- will work on the design, development, and testing of the LISA active target setup
- is expected participate in the ongoing experimental program of the group and contribute to the supervision of students
- is encouraged to pursue independent research initiatives in nuclear structure physics.
- a PhD in nuclear physics or a related field
- experience with the use of gamma-ray and charged particle detectors and the required electronics and data acquisition systems for nuclear physics experiments
- experience with the C++, the analysis framework ROOT, and the simulation toolkit GEANT4 is desirable.
- good written and oral English language skills are required.
