Applied Physicist (Alignment Systems) (EP-ADO-AM-2019-94-
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamentai structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cem.
opportunity is for you. Join the largest particle physics research laboratory in the world! CERN, take part!
The Experimental Physics (EP) Department carries out research in the field of experimental particle physics, supporting several experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. ATLAS is a general-purpose particle physics experiment operated by an international collaboration, and it is designed to exploit the full
discovery potential and the huge range of physics opportunities that the LHC provides. The physics reach of
the ATLAS experiment is determined by its capability of measuring with high accuracy several physics quantities of the particles generated in the LHC collision, as the particle's momentum. To achieve the required momentum resolution for muons, the positions of all the measuring devices have to be known and
kept under control with an accuracy of about 50 microns over a volume of 20x20x40 m3.
ATLAS Muon Detector Technical Design Report
You will be responsible for the maintenance and operation of this system and, in close collaboration with the ATLAS Muon project leader, you will:
ensure that adequate resources and support as well as spare parts are available. - Lead the effort to provide regular updates of the alignment constants to the ATLAS Combined Performance Group for offline event reconstruction. - Train the next generation of experimental particle physicists in the operation of the ATLAS alignment system and in its data analysis.
In addition you will play a leading role in the ATLAS technical review and follow-up of the detector systems for the High-Luminosity LHC upgrade.
In close collaboration with the Upgrade Coordinator and the Technical Coordinator of ATLAS you will:
- Working in teams: working well in groups and readily fitting into a team; participating fully and taking an
active role in team activities.
- English: proficient level / excellent command in spoken and written. Ability to draw-up technical specifications and/or scientific reports and to make oral presentations.
- French: willingness to learn the language rapidly.
