|Doctoral Position (TVL-E13/2) in Particle Physics Instrumentation with applications in medical physics at the Physikalisches Institut, Heidelberg University||Stephanie Hansmann-Menzemer|
|The physics groups of the Physikalisches Institut have a broad expertise in development, construction, commissioning, and operating of detectors for particle physics experiments. The LHCb group, in particular, consisting of 15 senior scientists and 25 students, is currently leading efforts in the development and production of the Scintillating Fibre Tracker for the LHCb upgrade.|
Transferring the knowledge developed in scintillating fibers, silicon photodetectors and read-out electronics, we have constructed a first proof-of-concept prototype for a beam profile monitor for the Heidelberg Ion Therapy (HIT) Clinic. This research project has the potential to replace the current systems with a robust and more effective technology. However, the detector must be able to perform under a broad range of conditions in the high intensity radiation therapy beams from multiple ion sources. In close collaboration with the staff from the HIT, we will continue to study, design and test the limits of this detector.
We are seeking a candidate with an interest in detector system development and integration to support our efforts. Starting dates are possible after April 1st, 2017. The candidate will also participate in the HighRR Research Training Group within the institute.
Applicants must have a Masters degree in experimental particle physics or in a related field with relevant experience. Applications should include an academic CV, a research statement and two letters of reference and should be sent to
Prof. Stephanie Hansmann-Menzemer
Dr. Blake Leverington
The position is open until filled. Applications which are received before the 15th of February, 2017 will receive our primary attention. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
