On behalf of the State of Bavaria, the Technische Universität München operates the high flux Neutron Source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II) located at the leading scientific campus in Garching, Germany.
Within the detector team you play a leading role in the design, integration and commissioning of new detector systems for neutron scattering applications at FRM II. You strengthen the group’s activities in testing, calibration and maintenance of the detector systems installed at scientific instruments in user operation. You are responsible and take care for their proper performance and daily reliable operation and work on their permanent improvement. You actively consult and support our scientists in detector related issues including readout electronics and data acquisition systems. You participate in R&D programs to study novel detector concepts for neutron scattering applications performed in an international framework.
The appointment is initially limited. The payment is based on the German pay scale TV-L. The Technische Universität München is an equal opportunity employer. Therefore women are especially encouraged to apply. Handicapped applicants having an equivalent experience will be preferred.
You have a degree in physics or engineering in related fields. Ideally you have knowledge and experience in the field of detectors for nuclear and particle physics applications. Experience in the design and performance of neutron detectors is advantageous. You work methodically and have a strong ability in performing independently practical and technical work. Knowledge of modern simulation and data analysis tools in particle physics is an asset. Persuasive communication skills and ability to team work in an international environment are mandatory. Good oral and written English skills are required.
