PhD candidate in detector R&D for fast silicon detectors
Donor name:Amestrdam University
Description:The detector research and development (R&D) group has an opening for a PhD position in detector R&D for fast silicon detectors. The group is actively involved in the design and characterisation of pixel sensors and readout chips. One focus is on 4D tracking and fast timing detectors for future detector upgrades at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva and beyond. Combining measurements in space with timing will enable experiments to cope with the fierce environment of the high luminosity LHC where they will see unprecedented hit rates and levels of radiation.
Funding details:The salary, depending on relevant experience before the beginning of the employment contract, will be €2.395 to €3.061 (scale P) gross per month, based on a full-time contract (38 hours a week). These amounts are exclusive 8 % holiday allowance and 8.3 end-of-year bonus. A favourable tax agreement, the ‘30% ruling’, may apply to non-Dutch applicants.
