You will become part of the SY-STI-RBS section within CERNs Accelerator Systems Department, bridging across scientific fields such as nuclear physics, material science, atomic physics and chemistry. With more than 50 years of experience in the domain of radioactive ion beam production and numerous international collaborations in this field, you can find an environment to accelerate your career
We are ooking for a nuclear physicist (or similar) to take charge of development and characterization of radioactive ion beam (RIB) produced at CERN-ISOLDE. ISOLDE is an experiment dedicated to the production of radioactive ion beams for physics research using the isotope separation on- line (ISOL) method.
In this position, you will: - lead the development and characterization of radioactive ion beams produced at ISOLDE; - support the coordination and characterization of targets and respective RIBs using the ISOLDE infrastructure; - support the implementation of a second fast tape station as a complementary tool for more access to beam characterization; - implement an implantation setup as well as an alpha decay spectroscopy setup for the study of long-lived and alpha-decaying nuclei; - manage the weekly yield measurement campaigns, manage the user driven demand for new RIB deliveries and take part in the proton-energy upgrade study.

What we offer
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on https:// home.cern.
