Employer: i3M (Institute for Instrumentation in Molecular Imaging) is a joint center of the parent organization CSIC and the UPV (Polytechnic University of Valencia). i3M has recently entered in a collaboration with Multiwave Metacrystal S.A., a Swiss start-up led by Prof. Paul Lecoq (Head of physics of the European Academy of Science). This collaboration is focused on the development of a new generation of time-of-flight detectors. In particular, new ultra-fast scintillating materials and topologies are to be tested, characterized and developed into cost-effective, system level solutions.
Position: We are seeking a physicist or engineer, with background in analysis and characterization of scintillation-based detectors, to focus on the testing of new scintillators. The work will take place at the Detectors for Molecular Imaging Laboratory section of i3M in Valencia (Spain). It includes conditioning and assembly of the new materials and scintillator matching to silicon photomultipliers. Data readout includes novel high-performance electronics and commercially available ASICs-based systems. At a later stage, the candidate will take the lead in development of system level solutions. Depending on the profile of the successful candidate, the position can be technical or academic, in the form of PhD or post-doc.
Requirements: Applicants should have a master or PhD in physics or engineering and proven experience in laboratory measurements of scintillator detectors. A strong background in electronics and PCB design is also desirable. The candidate should have a strong interest and commitment to research. Knowledge of English is required.
Application: Interested candidates should send a CV, complete list of past research topics and publications, and names of two references to Georgios Konstantinou. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Any questions should be directed to the same email address.
