Nikhef, the national institute for subatomic physics in The Netherlands, invites applications for a
Specialized in Cosmic Ray research
The Nikhef organization
Nikhef is the national institute for subatomic physics in the Netherlands. At Nikhef, approximately 220 physicists and 75 technical staff work together in an open and international scientific environment. Together they perform theoretical and experimental research in the fields of particle and astroparticle physics. Nikhef is a partnership between six major Dutch universities and NWO-I Foundation, the Institutes Organization of the Dutch Research Council (NWO).
The Nikhef institute participates in the Pierre Auger Observatory in Argentina, and investigates possibilities to become an active member in the GRAND Observatory .
Other research collaborations Nikhef participates in are the ALICE, ATLAS and LHCb experiments at CERN, the KM3NeT neutrino telescope in the Mediterranean, the Virgo gravitational waves interferometer in Pisa, the Xenon-nT dark matter experiment in Gran Sasso and the eEDM research programme in Groningen. There are also scientific groups on Theory, Physics Data Processing and Detector R&D. Nikhef avails over excellently equipped technical departments in mechanics, electronics and computing. We are committed to being diverse and inclusive in the workplace.
We are looking for a candidate to strengthen our research at the Cosmic Ray observatories. This could for instance be by contributing to the further development of radio detection of ultra-high-energy cosmic particles (charged or neutral), or through a better understanding of particle detection in air showers. In addition, we would welcome experience in either particle identification, or interpretation of the data in the search for sources and ultra-high-energy interactions in the atmosphere. As we are looking to broaden the diversity of our research group, strong preference will be given to female and minority candidates.
Further information on this position can be obtained from Prof dr. Charles Timmermans (email@example.com).
