The Nuclear Physics Group at the University of York offers a two-year position for a postdoctoral researcher (full time) in Nuclear Technology to start in January 2017.
In the Nuclear Technology group at York, we focus on the development of state-of-the-art radiation detection systems. These detectors find widespread use in industrial and societal applications (such as medicine and homeland security) as well as in particle and nuclear physics experiments. Currently we are specializing on solutions for science and society that are based on Silicon Photomultipliers coupled to scintillator detectors. The research projects are carried out in close collaboration with our industrial partners and external academic collaborators.
In this post you will lead the efforts for designing and constructing a novel high resolution gamma-ray detector based on scintillators and Silicon Photomultipliers. You will be working within our Innovation Partnership Scheme project funded by STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) and will be in close collaboration with Kromek PLC based in Co. Durham, UK. The project will involve design and construction of prototype detectors and knowledge transfer between the University of York and Kromek. A strong research interest in radiation detection technology is essential.
We are looking to fill the position starting from January 2017.
This is a full-time post (37 hours a week), fixed term for up to 24 months.
Informal enquiries regarding the above position can be made to Dr. Stefanos Paschalis (email@example.com).
