Early Stage Researcher Position Available at the J. Stefan Institute, Slovenia

The detector development lab of the Experimental particle physics department (F9) at the J. Stefan Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia, has an early stage researcher position available for research work on the development of the particle identification system for the Belle-II spectrometer.

We are looking for a young experimental physicist, ready to participate in research training as an early-stage researcher (3.5-year position). The research work will lead to the award of a PhD.

The research will be carried out within the upgrade of the Belle spectrometer to Belle-II at KEK, Tsukuba, Japan. The Belle collaboration is one of the best known research groups in particle physics, and has significantly contributed to the experimental confirmation of the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism of CP violation, for which the Nobel prize was awarded in 2008. The early stage researcher will focus his/her research on the development of a proximity focusing ring imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detector. The research will include development of novel position sensitive single photon detectors for operation in high magnetic fields, testing of prototypes with light sources and test beams, optimisation of the detector design by using Monte Carlo simulation, and development of methods for reconstructing recorded data.

PhD Studentship for Cold and Controlled Collisions, Radboud University, Netherlands

The general aim of the project entitled “Cold and Controlled Collisions; a microscope for molecular interactions” is to study collisions between atoms and molecules at low temperatures and with unprecedented precision. We will use the Stark deceleration technique to obtain full control over the velocity and quantum state of the molecules prior to the collision, and state-of-the-art laser detection techniques to probe the collision products.

The project will focus particularly on the experimental observation of quantum interference effects and scattering resonances.You are an enthusiastic candidate with a strong interest in the fields of physics or physical chemistry. You have obtained a Master’s degree in chemistry, physics, or a related discipline, and proven laboratory skills. Good knowledge of English, both written and oral, is compulsory.Employment: 1,0 fte Maximum salary per month, based on a fulltime employment: € 2,612 gross/month .The starting salary is €2,042 per month and will increase to €2,612 per month in the fourth year. PhD scale.
