M/F Postdoctoral Fellowship In Experimental Nuclear Physics

Universities and Institutes of France


October 3, 2022


  • Organisation/Company: CNRS
  • Research Field: Physics
  • Researcher Profile: Recognised Researcher (R2)
  • Application Deadline: 03/10/2022 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › CAEN
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 05/12/2022
  • Main Activities: - Evaluation of the best radioactive nuclei candidates for studies to be proposed at the SPIRAL and/or LISE GANIL facilities in the framework of the test of the Standard Model of the weak interaction, - Data analysis and dissemination of the results of an experiment previously performed at LISE, - Development of a decay station based on an existing tape-drive system dedicated to measurements to be performed at LISE.

    Secondary Activities: - Participation to the preparation and the running of experiments at LISE, - Participation in laboratory activities (dissemination of scientific knowledge to a general public in particular), - Interactions with other postdocs and students.

    The candidate will setup a research program at GANIL based on high-precision beta-decay measurements allowing to test the Standard Model of the weak interaction. The candidate will also participate in the operation of the LISE spectrometer at GANIL, in close collaboration with the staff in charge of its operation.

    The "Grand Accélérateur d'Ions Lourds" is today one of the four largest research laboratories in the world dedicated to research using ion beams. The fields of research range from radiotherapy to the physics of the atom and its nucleus, and from condensed matter to astrophysics. In the field of nuclear physics, GANIL has made numerous discoveries on the structure of atomic nuclei, in particular on the so-called "exotic" nuclei not found naturally on Earth. GANIL (about 280 people) is located in France, in the city of Caen, in Normandy. It is jointly managed, within an Economic Interest Group (EIG), by the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA/DRF) and the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS/IN2P3). As a national host laboratory, GANIL serves the national, European and international scientific community. Within the DPHY division, the post-doctoral researcher will be integrated in the research team around the LISE spectrometer. Activities will be performed in collaboration with the CENBG and LPC Caen laboratories, in the framework of ISOL France. GANIL's ambition is to play a major role in weak interaction studies given the unique character of the possibilities offered by the LISE and SPIRAL facilties compared to competing equipment. The proposed research topic is also a major axis of researches to be carried out in the future with the S3 and DESIR equipment built in the framework of SPIRAL2. The candidate recruited by the CNRS will benefit from certain advantages related to the restaurant on site (employer's contribution to the price of the meal), a number of vacations related to the derogatory status of GIE GANIL of the order of 53 days (32 CA and 21 JRTT) , and advantages related to the actions of the GANIL social action committee. The weekly working rhythm is 40h/week, i.e. 8.25am - 5.10pm with a 45 minutes lunch break. Applicants must provide the following documents: - a CV, including a list of publications and detailing the individual contribution to the publications, - a cover letter stating motivations for the position including a short description of research interests and projects (2-3 pages).
