A two-years postdoctoral position will be available, starting from September 1st, at the Laboratoire Irène Joliot-Curie (IJCLab) in Orsay, France. The hosting group is strongly involved in the electron-scattering experiments carried out at Jefferson Lab (JLab, USA) in the Halls A, B, and C, as well as in the preparation for the future Electron-Ion Collider. The main interest of our researches is the study of the multi-dimensional structure of the nucleon, focusing in particular on the measurement of Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs) via exclusive reactions.
The selected candidate will work on the processing and analysis of the data currently being taken with the CLAS12 detector and a longitudinally polarized target, with the goal of extracting target-spin asymmetries for deeply virtual Compton Scattering (DVCS) on the neutron. She/he will also have the possibility to work on other datasets, reactions, and observables which may be relevant for the study of GPDs, such as the cross sections for neutron-DVCS on unpolarized-target CLAS12 data. She/he will also participate in the feasibility studies and in the preparation for the future CLAS12 experiment of DVCS with a transversely polarized proton target.
The work will be mainly based in IJCLab, with the possibility of frequent trips to JLab to take part in data taking and in meetings.
A Doctoral Degree in Physics with specialization in experimental nuclear or particle physics, or related area, is required. A demonstrated experience in data analysis and good software skills are highly desirable.
Contexte de travail
The Irène Joliot-Curie Laboratory (IJCLab) is a mixed-research unit under the supervision of the CNRS (IN2P3), the University of Paris-Saclay and the University of Paris. It is located on the campus of the University of Paris -Saclay in Orsay. The campus is located 20 km south of Paris and easily accessible by RER in 35 minutes.
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 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 the study of the structure of the nucleon measuring exclusive reactions in electron scattering experiments.
The group includes 15 physicists (permanent researchers, post-docs and doctoral students).
Contraintes et risques
About 2-3 trips per year to Jefferson Lab (United States) should be expected.
Submit a cover letter and CV without any break in date showing diplomas, titles and work and professional experience.
Attach letters of recommendation, names and contact details of previous supervisors/dissertation directors if applicable.
As the post is located in a ZRR (restricted area), recruitment is conditional upon a favourable opinion from the HFSD. Consequently, the starting date is given as an indication and may be postponed.
