development lab of the Experimental
particle physics department (F9) at the J. Stefan
Institute, Ljubljana, Slovenia, has an early stage researcher
position available for research work
on the development of the particle identification system for the Belle-II spectrometer.
We are looking for a young experimental physicist, ready to participate in
research training as an early-stage researcher (3.5-year position).
The research work will lead to the award of a PhD.
The research will be carried out within the upgrade of the Belle spectrometer to Belle-II at KEK,
The Belle collaboration is one of the best known research groups in particle physics,
and has significantly
contributed to the experimental confirmation of the Kobayashi-Maskawa mechanism of CP violation, for
which the Nobel prize was awarded in 2008. The early stage researcher will focus his/her research on the
development of a
proximity focusing ring imaging Cherenkov (RICH) detector. The research will include
of novel position sensitive single photon detectors for operation in high
magnetic fields, testing of prototypes with
light sources and test beams, optimisation of the detector
design by using Monte Carlo simulation, and development of methods for reconstructing
The candidates should send a CV, a list of exams and a copy of the diploma or master certificate to
peter.krizan @ ijs.si. They should also arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to the same
