PhD position is open to work on research and development of innovative gamma ray imaging detectors for fundamental research and applications in medical imaging. The research activities are related to the SiLGaP project and to the project "Electrons, kaons and neutrons in high precision measurements of hadrons and nuclei properties", both funded by the Croatian Science Fundation. The project activities are based at the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, but they also include strong cooperation with the Faculty of Science, University of Sydney, Australia.
Candidate's main responsibilities will be to perform GEANT4 simulations of the detector concept, participate in detector assembly and perform test measurement in the laboratory, as well as to develop and optimize image reconstruction alghoritms.
The candidate will attend the Nuclear physics courses in the Postgraduate school at the University of Zagreb, which is covered by the contract. The job is full-time for period of four years.
Experience in experimental nuclear physics is advantageous and shall be proven by the topic of the Master's thesis, published papers or by a letter of recommendation.
