The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the team responsible for developing and managing the project to build a new electromagnetic calorimeter for the Upgrade phase 2 of the LHCb experiment at CERN, within IJCLab. He/she will work under the supervision of Yasmine Amhis and Patrick Robbe within the framework of the GLUDYNAMICS project whose aim is to lead to to investigate gluons as source of geometry of protons and nuclei and source of force inside strongly interacting matter thanks to modern hadron structure and fluid dynamic descriptions of hadronic interactions and their interconnections.


The post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of optimizing the parameters of the ECAL for LHCb Upgrade Phase 2 taking into account the requirements imposed by running the detector with heavy ion collisions at the LHC. He or she shall contribute to activities such as performance optimization of reconstruction algorithms, possibly using FPGA co-processing, development of fast simulation of the detector response. It is also foreseen that she or he will be able to participate part-time to the analysis of the data recorded by LHCb between 2010 and 2018 in order to publish new measurements in the field of heavy ion physics.


Candidates must hold a doctorate in particle or nuclear. Other essential criteria for this post are a sound knowledge of instrumentation for particle detectors and experience with data analysis of large data.

Work Context

The Irène Joliot-Curie Physics Laboratory of 2 Infinities (IJCLab) is a UMR under the supervision of the CNRS (IN2P3), the University of Paris-Saclay and the University of Paris is located on the campus of the University of Paris -Saclay in Orsay. The laboratory is located on the campus of the Université Paris-Sud, Université Paris-Saclay in Orsay. The campus is located 20 km south of Paris and easily accessible by RER in 35 minutes.
IJCLab was born in 2020 from the merger of five units (CSNSM, IMNC, IPN, LAL, LPT). The staff is made up of nearly 560 permanent (340 engineers, technicians and administrators and 220 researchers and teacher-researchers) and approximately 200 non-permanent including 120 doctoral students. The research themes of the laboratory are nuclear physics, high energy physics, theoretical physics, astroparticles, astrophysics and cosmology, particle accelerators, energy and the environment and health. IJCLab has very significant technical capacities (around 280 IT) in all the major fields required to design, develop / implement the experimental devices necessary for its scientific activity, as well as the design, development and use of instruments. .
The researcher will work in the LHCb group of the Laboratory. The group includes around 10 physicists (permanent researchers, post-docs and doctoral students).

Constraints and risks

Short periods of travel at CERN and abroad should be expected
