Experimental High Energy Group at TSU

Vacancy is closed
Project: 
Electronics and detector development on ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider
Project annotation: 

ATLAS is one of the four major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland). It is a general-purpose particle physics experiment run by an international collaboration and is designed to exploit the full discovery potential and the huge range of physics opportunities that the LHC provides.

The HEP group at TSU has a focus in physics analyses such as fermionic decays of the Higgs boson, as well as in the operation and upgrade of the ATLAS Muon Spectrometer. 

Laboratory head: 
Dr. Aleksandr Khodinov (Alexander.Khodinov@cern.ch).

Conditions of work in the scientific collective: 

Labor agreement based on a six-day working per week and two months of vacation, ensuring full social security.

Position will be based at CERN with frequent travel to TSU.

Compliance with mandatory reportable indicators (including at least three publications indexed by Scopus and Web of Science annually), teaching at TSU up to 6 hours per week or working with students and graduate students.

Participation in seminars, opportunity to participate in a competition for vacant positions as a staff at TSU.

Working for other organizations, universities, companies, etc. is not acceptable within the terms of this position.

1
Job Requirements: 

The candidate is expected to play a leading role in the quality assurance of the VMM ASIC for the New Small Wheel (NSW) project and in the subsequent integration and commissioning of the NSW detectors. Beyond phase 1, participation in R&D on the detector technology for the ATLAS phase 2 upgrade is also expected.

In addition to the standard conditions (http://postdoc.tsu.ru/node/3?lang=en), candidates with experience from a hadron collider experiment as well as in design/production/testing of electronics for measurement system using FPGAs and microcontrollers are particularly favored.

Triggering in HEP experiments requires very fast and increasingly sophisticated processing of data. The position requires the successful applicant to work at the forefront of technologies relevant to this field. The applicant must have a Ph.D., or equivalent, in Particle Physics or Electronic Engineering and must have a strong interest in Experimental Particle Physics.

The applicant should also have extensive experience in C++/Python.

The initial term of the position is one year with the possibility of extension for further two years. Interested candidates are asked to submit an application by Feb 1st 2016 together with a curriculum vitae and a letter of motivation as well as to arrange at least three reference letters to be sent to Dr. Aleksandr Khodinov  (Alexander.Khodinov@cern.ch).

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
