The INFN Cosenza and the Physics Department of the University of Calabria announce an opening for a postdoc position with the experimental particle physics group. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join a dynamic research team and work on the characterization of Silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) for Ring Imaging Cherenkov (RICH) at the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), as well as on related physics performance evaluation.

The project will involve simulations, characterization and prototyping of photo-sensors, as well as data analysis from beam and irradiation tests and simulation-based physics performance studies.

The ideal candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in physics or a related field, with a strong background in experimental particle physics, detector development, and data analysis. Knowledge of programming languages such as C++, Python, and ROOT is highly desirable. Experience with SiPMs and/or RICH detectors would be an advantage but is not required.

The Calabria group has a leading role in the development of the physics case as well as the dRICH SiPM photodetectors of the ePIC experiment at the future EIC. The group is also deeply involved in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (quark top and QCD physics, muon spectrometer’s small wheel upgrade), participates in the STAR experiment at RHIC, and played a major role in the ZEUS experiment at HERA. The postdoc candidate will therefore have an excellent perspective to learn and grow in a dinamic research environment.
