The Centre for Cosmology, Particle Physics and Phenomenology (CP3) at “Université Catholique de Louvain” invites applications for a post-doctoral position in
“Data Analysis and Trigger development for NA62 experiment”
The appointment is a full-time for duration of 2 years and is available immediately.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in particle physics and experience in the analysis of High Energy Physics experiments. She/he will be engaged in an international team involved both in the construction of the NA62 experiment at CERN and in the analysis of rare and forbidden kaon decays with the data collected from end of 2014. More concretely, the candidate will work in the definition, simulation, development and implementation of level 1 and level 2 software triggers for the online reduction of the collected data from 1 MHz rate down to the about 15 kHz tape logging rate, including a suitable mixture of main channel physics, rare-decay search, calibration, monitoring, and control triggers.
Research activity at CP3 is equally strong in theoretical and experimental physics and collaborations between them are highly encouraged. Besides NA62, the Centre is involved in CMS experiment, in the development of Monte Carlo generators and in the phenomenology of fundamental interactions. A strong computing team, hosting a Tier-2 installation, is also in place. The selected candidate is expected to be based in Belgium with possibility of extended stays at CERN.
