The Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide. The EPFL employs 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions: education, research and innovation. The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of 16,000 people, including over 10,000 students and 3,500 researchers from 120 different countries.
Your mission :
The new colleague will engage in the development, construction and operation of a new luminosity monitor for LHCb. This includes the evaluation of technologies such as quartz bars, fibres, or crystal scintillators. Other activities may include either LHCb data analysis or participation in the design and construction of a SciFi tracker for a neutrino and dark matter search experiment. Experience with photodetectors is a valuable asset.
Main duties and responsibilities include :
The Laboratory for High Energy Physics (LPHE,www.epfl.ch/labs/lphe/
) of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications for a postdoc position to work on the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider. Our group is strongly involved in data analysis, as well as in the construction and operation of the Scintillating Fibre (SciFi) Tracker for the LHCb detector upgrade. It pursues R&D for further LHCb upgrades, and possible new particle physics experiments, space and medical applications.
The position, which also comprises teaching duties at Bachelor or Master level and the supervision of a PhD student working on the same subject, becomes available on January 1, 2020, and will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is identified. The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable up to a maximum of four years.
Your profile :
Applicants must hold a PhD degree obtained within the past 5 years (or expect to graduate before the start of employment) and have a solid experience in experimental particle physics.
Start date :
1st of January 2020
Term of employment :
Work rate :
The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable up to a total of four years.
