The postdoc candidate will join the MaNoir team from the IPNL including 2 professors, 2 associate professors and 2 CNRS research scientists. The team works jointly on the two following projects: EDELWEISS - searching for low mass dark matter - and Ricochet - dedicated to low-energy neutrino physics. The postdoc candidate will focus on the future Ricochet experiment aiming for a percentage-level measurement of the coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering process at low energy. The postdoc candidate will focus on cryogenic detector R&D and on the science potential of the future Ricochet experiment.


- R&D dedicated to charge collection and electromagnetic background rejection in cryogenic semiconductor detectors
- Operating cryogenic detectors in the dry dilution cryostat at the IPNL, including detector installation, data acquisition and data analysis
- Phenomenological studies dedicated to the low-energy neutrino physics program of Ricochet
- Scientific paper writing and publication
- Presentation at various scientific conferences and workshops
- Student mentoring on each of the activities liste above


- Good knowledge of astro-particle physics, detection methods and cryogenic detector techniques
- Good knowledge of experimental techniques related to particle detection, data acquisition and data analysis
- Good communication skills and significant experience in paper writing
- Excellent team work and demonstration of independent thinking

Work Context

The IPNL is a UMR CNRS / IN2P3 and University © Claude Bernard Lyon 1 composed of about 225 people including about 160 permanent on the campus of the Doua in Villeurbanne (69). It is organized in the form of thematic research axes: the physics of quarks and leptons, astroparticles, nuclear and hadronic physics, theory, radiation sciences divided into 14 research groups and 9 technical and administrative services.
The postdoc candidate will work closely with the various technical services of the IPNL (mechanics, electronics, computing and instrumentation) in the context of his/her effort related to the cryogenic detector R&D.

Constraints and risks

The postdoc candidate is expected to be traveling on a regular basis within France and abroad to attend to the Ricochet collaboration meetings and to present his/her results at various international conferences and workshops. No work related risks are envisioned.
