Our group is strongly involved in the developments aimed at the realization of the future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL, U.S.A.) and is seeking talented candidates to join our team.
Our physics interests are geared to the three-dimensional imaging of nucleons and nuclei through the study of deeply virtual exclusive reactions. With this goal, we are pursuing an R&D program in high resolution electromagnetic (EM) calorimetry towards the construction of the backward endcap EM calorimeter of the EIC detector. This calorimeter will be based on a combination of scintillating crystals and high resolution glass currently under development. In addition, we are interested in the detection of very forward scattered particles in the Roman Pots (RP) in the hadron-going far-forward region. The RP are planned to use the AC-LGAD technology and we are contributing to the development of a readout ASIC for them.
The selected candidate will be stationed in Orsay with supported travel to BNL and Jefferson Lab during the duration of the appointment. She/he will lead simulations of the EIC detector to better define its requirements of the exclusive physics program. She/he will also be expected to take a prominent role in the R&D work in calorimetry and/or readout electronics for the RP.
The selected candidate will be encouraged to co-supervise PhD students on the project.
Strong computing skills and experience with hardware are required. A good command of English is also necessary.
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 permanents (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 JLab/EIC group of the Laboratory which is involved in hadron physics experiments at both JLab and the future Electron Ion Collider.
The group includes around 15 physicists (permanent researchers, post-docs and doctoral students).
Constraints and risks
Short periods of travel within France and abroad should be expected.
Submit a covering letter and CV without any break in date showing diplomas, titles and work and professional experience.
As IJCLab is subjected to ZRR (Zone à Régime Restrictif) military regulation, hiring choices must be approved by the Haut Fonctionnaire Securité Défense (HFSD). Therefore, the date of employment written above should be understood as provisional, and may need to be delayed.
