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.

Your Qualification:

  •  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.
