3 PhD student positions - NEXT Collaboration
The Experimental Neutrino Physics Group at the Instituto de Física Corpuscular (IFIC) invites applications for three PhD student positions. The successful candidate will join the NEXT collaboration, in which our group is strongly involved.
The NEXT program is focused on the development of high-pressure xenon gas time projection chambers (HPXe TPC) with electroluminescent amplification for neutrinoless double beta decay searches. Our team is actively involved in building and commissioning a 100 kg detector (NEXT-100) at the Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc, in northern Spain. We are also involved in the research and development of innovative photon collectors slated for use in the forthcoming tonne-scale phase of the experiment. Additionally, we are also engaged in pioneering machine learning techniques to improve signal discovery sensitivity of neutrinoless double beta decay searches in the NEXT experiments.
The ideal candidate has a strong motivation for fundamental research, and has received education in Particle Physics. Experience in programming, data analysis and particle detectors are not required, but will be valued positively. Applicants should possess a master's degree or be in the process of completing a master's degree at the time of application.
Applicants are requested to send their application, including a motivation letter, CV and academic transcripts to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/26293 by 25 of November.
