PhD in Experimental Particle Physics Instrumentation at ATLAS

13 Sep 2024

NOTE: this position listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Position Description

The instrumentation physics group at Stockholm University invites applicants for a Ph.D. position to work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron collider (LHC) at CERN. The main task for the applicant will be to participate in upgrading the ATLAS hadronic calorimeter system for high-luminosity data taking at LHC.

The successful candidate will have a strong role in the TileCal upgrade work, including development and testing of the a radiation-tolerant control and readout link daughterboard, as well as integration of the full system at CERN. Additional work may include data analysis or other instrumentation projects, depending on the candidate’s interests. Frequent travel to CERN in Geneva is expected, with a possibility of longer periods based at CERN. We seek a self-motivated candidate with good analytical abilities and skilled in English. Strong merits include experience with analog and/or digital electronics, programmable logic, and hardware-level programming.

A PhD education at Stockholm University is four years (48 months). The 4-year PhD program includes at least 3 years of research and at most one year of course work. The position may be extended by up to one year if up to 20 % teaching assistance or administration is included in the contract. The PhD student is employed (“doktorandanställning”) during the studies, with a monthly salary starting at SEK 25 900.
