The Multi-Messenger High-Energy Group of the Department of Particle Physics invites applications for


Postdoctoral Research Associate

The group has established a rich program in Astroparticle Physics (Neutrinos and Gamma-rays), and in applications using Photosensors. The activity will be carried on in the context of a Department with broad expertise in particle Astroparticle physics, and with valuable electronics and mechanics workshops.

The candidate will be involved in the CTA project and the physics program of the large size telescope (LST). The candidate will be responsible of software development for the calibration, data quality monitoring and analysis of data in the context of the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA). She/he will be active in the development of the pipeline of the data and their calibration.

Experience with Cherenkov astronomy or telescope operations is an advantage. The positions are expected to last for the duration of the construction and early operations of CTA, young promising scientists are particularly welcome to apply.

To qualify, the candidate is required to have a PhD in Physics. Candidates should have programming skills in C, C++ and Python, and possibly be familiar with data analysis in Imaging Cherenkov Telescopes. Experience in testing equipment and performing experiments in the lab is consider a plus. Excellent command of the English language is desirable.

Interested applicants should submit:

  • a curriculum vitae including the description of research experience,
  • the list of publications,
  • contact information of two reference persons. 

The post should be filled before July 2020.
