Reference : UMR7638-EMIMAU-001
Workplace : PALAISEAU
Date of publication : Wednesday, September 1, 2021
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 24 months
Expected date of employment : 3 January 2022
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : Between 2728 and 3145 € monthly depending on experience
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : Indifferent
The successful candidate is expected to take a leading role in the LHCb fixed-target program. She/he will pioneer heavy flavour (charmonium and/or open charm) production studies with the upgraded LHCb fixed-target (SMOG2). She or he will also be invited to participate in the common efforts on reconstruction or particle identification software, simulation or luminosity measurements.
Main activities are :
o be strongly involved in the SMOG2 data taking
o measure heavy flavor production in LHCb fixed-target configuration
o participate in the common efforts on reconstruction or particle identification software, simulation or luminosity measurement.
• Candidates must hold a doctorate in experimental particle physics.
• Physics: knowledge in hadronic physics is preferred though not mandatory.
• Experiment: knowledge in LHCb software would be an asset, though not mandatory.
• Programming: Skills in python, C++, and ROOT.
• Language: Fluency in spoken and written English. Some level of French could be useful.
• Good communication skills and ability to work in a team.
The LLR-LHCb group is strongly involved in the LHCb heavy ion physics program, especially in its fixed-target configuration. It is also involved in the LHC luminosity measurement and the preparation of the detector upgrades. There are currently 3 permanent researchers, 1 post-doc and 1 PhD student in the LLR team.
LLR is a CNRS/IN2P3, Ecole polytechnique / Institut Polytechnique de Paris, laboratory located at Palaiseau (20 km south of Paris).
Constraints and risks
The successful candidate will regularly go to CERN to participate in the data taking of the LHCb experiment, taking part in shifts, ensuring data quality and to attend physics meetings.
Applicants should have a PhD (or a fixed date of defense). Preference will be given to candidates with less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience. The contract should start by March 2022. The position is initially for 2 years, but with the possibility for a 1-year extension.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter and at least two letters of reference to be sent to Emilie Maurice (email@example.com) before October 15th 2021.
Further inquiries about the LLR-LHCb group and the position should be addressed to the same address.
