Physicist

Max Planck Institute for Physics

Munich, Germany

The institute invites applications for a physicist (f/m/d) for the scientific services of the institute to drive production and testing of transition edge sensors for the CRESST experiment. CRESST is a dark matter search based on scintillating cryogenic calorimeters and is lo-cated at the Gran Sasso underground laboratory in central Italy. CRESST is a worldwide leading experiment in the search of light dark matter candidates to explain the lack of matter in the universe. The CRESST group at MPP has a many year’s leadership in the development and operation of the low-threshold high-performance detectors that are needed to reach the experimental sensitivity.

Your tasks

  • Take over a leading role in the development and fabrication of detectors for the CRESST experiment.
  • Contribute to the testing of cryogenic detectors in the dilution refrigerators at MPP or in the MPP cryostat dedicated to detector R&D at Gran Sasso.
  • Take over the management of the equipment for detector production available at MPP.
  • Take over the management of the cryogenic infrastructure for detector testing at MPP.
  • Contribute to the on-site support at LNGS and to the planned upgrade of the CRESST experiment.

Your profile

  • A master in experimental physics or equivalent. A PhD is of advantage.
  • Experience with low temperature experimental methods (thermometry, operation of dilution refrig-erators, handling of liquefied gases).
  • Experience with ultra-high vacuum techniques, thin films deposition systems and technology.
  • Good communication capabilities, flexibility and a team oriented working style.
