Research Associate on extreme timing for collider detectors - Cluster of Excellence "Quantum Universe"

German Electron Synchrotron (DESY)

Hamburg, Germany

Work group:

FLC



Area of research:

Scientific / postdoctoral posts



Starting date:

1578265200



Job description:

DESY


DESY is one of the world’s leading research centres for photon science, particle and astroparticle physics as well as accelerator physics. More than 2400 employees work at our two locations Hamburg and Zeuthen in science, technology and administration.


The Cluster of Excellence "Quantum Universe" performs research to understand mass and gravity at the interface between quantum physics and cosmology. The research team includes leading scientists from mathematics, particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology at Universität Hamburg and DESY. Postdoctoral research associates will become member of the Quantum Universe research school (QURS) and through this receive offers for academic training, soft skills, and career planning. In addition, they will receive individual budgets, meant to enable them to attend conferences or other educational and suppqrting measures. Additional travel money for project-specific duties will be made available via the hosting research groups. Postdoctoral research associates may participate in the supervision of doctoral students, teaching at the University, and in the organization of the Cluster via an early career council.


The position


Develop high-level reconstruction algorithms to exploit extreme timing information at future Higgs factoriesStudy possible implementation of extreme timing into detector concepts and its impact on Higgs physicsDevelop an experimental campaign to demonstrate such a timing system

Requirements


PhD in experimental particle physicsStrong interest in shaping future particle physics experimentsSignificant experience in programming of reconstruction algorithms and for data analysis of collider experimentsVery good understanding of particle detectors and/or experience in detector developmentTeam ability and very good English language skills

Salary and benefits are commensurate with those of public service organisations in Germany. Classification is based upon qualifications and assigned duties. Handicapped persons will be given preference to other equally qualified applicants. DESY operates flexible work schemes. DESY is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and encourages applications from women. Vacant positions at DESY are in general open to part-time-work. During each application procedure DESY will assess whether the post can be filled with part-time employees.
