Lead Developer Reconstruction Software (m/f/d)

GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt operates one of the leading particle accelerators for science. In the next few years, the new FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) one of the world's largest research projects, will be built in international cooperation. GSI and FAIR offer the opportunity to work in this international environment with a team of employees committed to ensuring each day to conduct world-class science.


The CBM (Compressed Baryonic Matter) experiment is one of the major experiments to be conducted at this new facility. CBM will investigate strongly interacting matter by measuring heavy-ion collisions, with the ambitious aim to achieve very high interaction rates. The experimental concept foresees real-time data selection in software, which requires highly performant and efficient algorithms for event reconstruction.


For the CBM department at GSI, we seek at the nearest possible point in time a
