A 2+1 year postdoctoral position to work on detector upgrades for the ALICE experiment has been announced by the Nationaal instituut voor subatomaire fysica (Nikhef) and Utrecht University.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in nuclear or particle physics, good communication skills and the ability to work as part of an international team. Experience with detector technologies, and good software skills, would also be desirable. Applicants should send their curriculum vitae, a statement of their research interest and at least two references to Thomas Peitzmann1and Teus van Egdom2 quoting vacancy number PZ-110553.

Nikhef, which contributed hardware to ALICE’s Silicon Strip Detector, has a strong involvement in physics analyses – notably in elliptic flow, heavy flavour and jet quenching.

The deadline for applications is 1 October this year. For more information, please contact Thomas Peitzmann.
