        Experimental PhD Position: Search for light dark matter at Beam Dump Facility 10m

        The Astroparticle Physics Group at the Physics Institute of the University of Freiburg invites applications for a

        Experimental PhD Position:
        Search for light Dark Matter at a Beam Dump Experiment at CERN

        The successful candidate will conduct experimental work in context of the Beam Dump Facility (BDF) to be realized at CERN, where projects such as the proposed SHiP Experiment (Search for Hidden Particles) could be installed. Such experiments will produce very weakly interacting long-lived particles from a new “Hidden Sector” of particle physics by sending a high-intensity proton beam into a beam dump, and to subsequently detect the decays of these particles. A central component of the BDF will be its decay vessel enclosed by the liquid scintillator-based Surround Background Tagger (SBT) to reject background events. The PhD candidate will realize a first full-scale prototype of a SBT segment which will be characterized at a testbeam at CERN and develop the readout electronics for its silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) signals.

        The astroparticle physics group at the University of Freiburg is also involved in the direct detection of dark matter (XENON, DARWIN), as well as in CAST and COMPASS / AMBER at CERN.

        Applicants should have a Master's degree (or equivalent) in physics and knowledge in (astro-)particle/nuclear physics. Interests and skills in hardware development, laboratory work and electronics are important. Basic programming skills are required.

        Interested candidates are encouraged to send a motivation letter stating their research interests, a CV with a list of publications (if available), an abstract of the masters/diploma thesis (max ½ page), degree certificates and study transcripts with a description of the grading scheme, a tangible proof of the fluency in English (if available) as well as names and email addresses of two potential references to marc.schumann@physik.uni-freiburg.de. Please send applications in electronic form (one single pdf file).

        The position is open July 1st, 2021 until filled. Applications are reviewed in the order they are received. Salary is 66% of a German TV-L-13 position. We welcome applications from women and members of underrepresented groups in our field. Applicants with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in case of equal qualification.

        postdoc position sought in Astrophysics 1m

        I am Heshou, a final year Ph.D. from Desy and Uni. Potsdam with thesis already submitted. The defense is expected by the end of 2021 and my current contract is also until the end of 2021. I am looking for the postdoctoral position and fellowship on astrophysics. I am interested in both theoretical and observational aspects. My past and current research mainly focus on the study of plasma properties for extended objects in the galaxy. Also, I am familiar with different diagnostics of astronomical magnetic field in diffuse ISM. Turbulence and magnetic fields are important for the understanding of high-energy events. I am curious what outcome we would obtain if we compared the magnetic and plasma properties measured from those extended emission regions with more gamma-ray observational data. Additionally, I am interested in the multi-waveband comparison of observational data. I believe the magnetic turbulence observation could provide an independent channel for high energy events.

        Throughout my previous experience, I would like to highlight my following expertise that will be helpful for the future research positions:
        1. Supercomputing, I have been project admin on successful HLRN proposals. I have performed parallel computing on super-cluster with TBs scale data.
        2. 3D-MHD simulation with MPI.
        3. Research experience on plasma physics and its application to Galactic medium.
        4. Multi-wavebands observational data comparison.
        5. Spectral line calculation experience, I am familiar with radiative transfer of atomic lines.
        6. Experience on publication to prestigious journals.
        7. I have the successful experience for telescope proposals in optical and sub-millimeter band.
        8. I have supervision experience for younger students.

        My application material includes a cover letter, my CV (Page 2 - 3), publication list (Page 4 - 5), A brief personal statement (Page 6), research experience summary (Page 7 – 9).

        Postdoc for dark matter searches at IBS, Korea 1m

        Job description:

        The center for underground physics (CUP, https://cupweb.ibs.re.kr) at Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in South Korea invites applications for a Postdoctoral research associate position to work on the project "Direct and indirect detection searches of sub-GeV dark matter signal in the Super-Kamiokande and future Water Cherenkov Detectors" (FY 2021~2026), funded with Young Scientist Fellowship program in IBS. The position is full-time, for an initial duration of 24 months, with the possibility of extension for 12 months. The annual salary will be decided based on the skills and experience of the applicant (starts from 50M KRW before taxation).

        Super-Kamiokande (SK) is a Water Cherenkov Detector built in Kamioka, Japan. It has been leading a wide range of physics over 20 years, including Nobel Prize awarded discovery of atmospheric neutrino oscillation and leading tests of dark matter with mass below O(10) GeV. Recently, a rare-earth element, gadolinium has been introduced into the SK water, starting a new period of observations (SK-Gd).

        Our group is particularly interested in searches for sub-GeV dark matter signal, via dark matter-electron and dark matter-nucleus scattering inside the detector, as well as neutrino flux produced via dark matter annihilation. With its huge volume, SK is expected to lead sub-GeV dark matter and other rare signal searches. Identification of the scattering signal and mitigation of the background is important.

        A Successful candidate is expected to take a leading role in the development and subsequent application of analysis methods to dark matter searches. The main tasks include identification of recoiled proton and other dark matter signals using neural network technique, modeling of dark matter scattering using Geant4 simulation, and background rejection. The candidate will also contribute to calibration and R&D efforts for SK and future Water Cherenkov Detectors such as WCTE. In particular, the candidate is expected to design and lead an ex-situ experiment to measure optical properties of materials used in the SK, and improve the detector simulation accordingly. Frequent travels to ICRR’s Kamioka Observatory is foreseen (after pandemic).

        The expected employment date is November 1, 2021.

        Personal Qualification:

        Candidates should have a Ph.D. in the past 5 years. Programming skills and good communication skills in English are necessary. Experiences with low-energy neutrino experiment, statistical methods, data analysis and Monte Carlo simulations, particularly with the ROOT and GEANT4, will be advantageous. Applicants from underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

        Application:

        Applicants should send a CV (including a list of publications), a brief research statement, and the consent form (can be downloaded here: https://www.ibs.re.kr/prog/recruit/eng/sub04_01/view.do?pageIndex=1&searchCondition=&searchKeyword=&idx=1248) to recruit1@ibs.re.kr, also arrange for two letters of reference to be mailed to the same email address. Inquiries about the position should be directed to Dr. Koun Choi (koun@ibs.re.kr).

        For the full consideration, the application and letters should arrive by August 13, 2021 while the position is open until filled.

        Multi-messenger Postdoc Retreat and Postdoc Fellowships at Ruhr-University Bochum 1m

        In the framework of the Scouting for Global Excellence Program we organize a one week workshop for international postdocs and senior PhD students (graduation by summer 2022) at Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB) during December 6-10, 2021.

        Multi-messenger Astronomy is an exciting young field that by definition connects different disciplines. The goal of this workshop is to foster interesting discussions and ideas among the new generation of multi-messenger astronomers. Participants will get the opportunity to present their own research project, exchange ideas with international peers and get to know the newly established multi-messenger group at RUB. The group works on neutrino, gamma-ray and optical astronomy, multi-messenger modeling and instrumentation and has strong ties to DESY Zeuthen. We are members of the Fermi-LAT, IceCube, ZTF and CTA collaboration and we collaborate with the Weizmann Institute in Israel to build the large array survey telescope (LAST).
        The workshop encourages the development of joint research projects and we will award two 6-months postdoc fellowships to attendees of the retreat to work with the multi-messenger group at RUB. Furthermore, there will be options to extend the fellowship at RUB or at our close partner institution DESY Zeuthen.

        The number of participants is limited to 10 and RUB will cover all travel and accommodation expenses. To apply to participate in the workshop please send a CV, including publication list and a 1-2 page research statement to Anna Franckowiak (anna.franckowiak@astro.rub.de) by August 31, 2021. The statement should briefly summarize your current research and motivate why you would like to participate in the multi-messenger postdoc retreat at RUB.
        Please contact Anna Franckowiak (anna.franckowiak@astro.rub.de) for more information. We aim to organize the retreat as an in-person event. However, should the situation concerning the pandemic not allow an in-person meeting, we will hold the meeting remotely.

        RUB promotes equal opportunities and diversity. The professional development of women is very important to us and therefore we strongly encourage women to apply for the program.
