Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Physicist, m/f/d)

Posting ID: 1220-19.70


The position:

The position is focused on studies of the production and nuclear stability of the heaviest elements. The SHE Chemistry department operates the gas-filled recoil separator TASCA and its ancillary detection setups. These are equipped with a state-of-the-art digital electronics data acquisition system based on sampling ADCs. The successful candidate will be integrated into the physics program of the department and will also be active in all experimental activities of the department at TASCA and elsewhere.


Your responsibilities:

  • Developing and applying experimental techniques for decay spectroscopy of heavy elements
