The Ruhr-Universität Bochum is one of the leading research universities. The university draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties.

The department "FAIR Forschung NRW (FFN)" invites outstanding candidates to apply for a

Researcher (Post-Doc) position for the developments of silicon microstrip detectors(m/f/d)

for the PANDA Micro Vertex Detector (MVD), to be built at FAIR, Darmstadt, Germany.

Your tasks:

You will be responsible together with national and international partners to develop and produce the silicon micro-strip components of the MVD. This includes the test of the sensors, the layout of the hybridization of the sensors with the custom designed readout electronics as well as the design of the support and cooling structures of the disc sensors of the MVD.

If the position is funded by third-party funds, the employee has no teaching obligation (§3 der Lehrverpflichtungsverordnung NRW).

Travel expenses for interviews cannot be refunded.
