The Chair of Experimental Physics I - FFN at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy is looking for a
The FFN group pursues basic research in the field of hadron and particle physics and is involved with major contributions in the development and construction of gaseous tracking detectors based on straw drift tubes for the HADES and PANDA experiments at the new FAIR facility (Darmstadt, Germany). After completion and installation of the Straw Tracker System (STS1) in the upgraded HADES spectrometer, an experiment beam time to study Hyperon production and decay was carried out in 2022 and the analysis of this data is ongoing. Currently, the group is building the central Straw Tube Tracker (STT) for the planned PANDA experiment. The innovative concept of the low-weight STT detector with a 4D-measurement (space and time) of the particle trajectory and particle identification (PID) capability makes this development very interesting for further applications. We will further explore this technology within the new international collaboration (DRD1) at CERN which is devoted to strategic research and developments in gaseous detector technologies for future particle experiments and other applications.
The candidate (m,f,x) will be involved in the research and development of new innovative straw detector systems and their applications in particle physics experiments. tis includes the operation of the STS1 system and the construction of the PANDA-STT detector system. You will planned perform appropriate test measurements including the analysis of the test data. The willingness to travel and work in radiation-controlled areas I required.
At the request of the applicant (m,f,x), the staff council may be involved in selection interviews.
If the position is funded by third-party funds the employee has no teaching obligation.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of Germany’s leading research universities, addressing the whole range of academic disciplines. A highly dynamic setting enables researchers and students to work across the traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. To create knowledge networks within and beyond the university is RUB’s declared aim.
The Ruhr-Universität Bochum stands for diversity and equal opportunities. For this reason, we favour a working environment composed of heterogeneous teams, and seek to promote the careers of individuals who are underrepresented in our respective professional areas. The Ruhr-Universität Bochum expressly requests job applications from women. In areas in which they are underrepresented they will be given preference in the case of equivalent qualifications with male candidates. Applications from individuals with disabilities are most welcome.
