PhD position in the project "Fast Timing with LGADs" at the Uni. Hamburg

University of Hamburg
Hamburg, Germany
Posting live until
16 Jun 2024

Your responsibilities

Duties include academic services in the project named above. Research associates may also pursue independent research and further academic qualifications. They may also pursue doctoral studies outside of working duties.

Our group is deeply involved in detector R&D, fast timing with LGADs, CMS pixel phase II upgrade, and in the investigation of radiation damage on silicon sensors. Candidates are expected to engage in the development and characterization of novel LGADs based on the “Monolithic Array of Reach Through APD” (MARTHA) design. A close collaboration with international partner institutes is expected.

Specific responsibility of the candidate will be:

  • characterization of prototype LGADs with I-V, C-V, Laser- and beta-TCT
  • optimisation of LGADs for fast-timing and radiation hardness using TCAD and MC tools
  • integration of a LGAD fast-timing layer into a test beam setup

Interested candidates will be offered the opportunity for independent research, advanced training, supervision of undergraduate students and development of teaching skills. Additional scientific accomplishments are encouraged. The position is financed through the federal initiative “Verbundprojekt 05H2024 - R&D DETEKTOREN (Siliziumdetektoren)“ by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF).

Your profile

A university degree in a relevant field.

A strong competence in laboratory measurements is expected. Candidates preferably have experience with TCAD and MC simulation, read-out electronics, data acquisitions and analysis of detector data.
