This event intends to provide the possibility to make known profiles that a requested for working in SiPM related projects in both industry and academia. A list of job openings is available below.
The Dept. of Physics and Mathematics at Universita' dell'Insubria recently opened a post-doc position focused on Silicon Photomultiplier activities.
The position is jointly funded by the University, CAEN s.p.a. and Regione Lombardia, the regional government. The initial appointment is on a 2 year base, with a possibility to extend it by 2 more years upon availability of the necessary funds.
The core of the activity may be outlined as follows:
- development of table-top educational applications for undergraduate physics students, based on the Silicon Photomultiplier Kit jointly developed with CAEN (more info available here). Activities are:
Deadline the application is February 25th. Expression of interest and request for further information shall be posted by email not later than February 21st to:
Prof. Massimo Caccia
Dept. Physics and Mathematics
Universita' dell'Insubria is a district university, based in Northern Italy. The Dept. of Physics and Mathematics is located in Como. With about 30 Staff people and a comparable number of post-doc and fixed term research officers, it has a focus on experimental research in sensor technology, high energy physics, astrophysics and optics.
The team to which the position is associated is lead by Massimo Caccia, professor; the team has a long standing tradition in the development, qualification, commissioning andintegration of Silicon Detectors of ionizing particles and visible light. Over the past 4 years, leading an FP6 project named RAPSODI (http://www.rapsodiproject.eu), the team focused on Silicon Photomultipliers, essentially in collaborative research projects with european companies.
Universita' dell'Insubria is an equal opportunity employer.
DESY has a long experience in operating large scale multi-channel calorimeters based on SiPM readout technologies. In the framework of the detector laboratory of DESY and the University of Hamburg new positions are available for PhD students and post-docs to work on the frontier technology of SiPM basic R&D and SiPM applications.
The current activities of the SiPM detector laboratory cover:

Positron emission tomography (PET) is a key medical imaging technique in the diagnosis of cancer and many other clinical and research applications. Recently the use of time-of-flight (TOF) information, requiring sub-nanosecond timing resolution, has been shown to enable significant improvement in PET image quality.
The SUBLIMA project is a FP7 Large-scale Integrating Project in which TU Delft collaborates with Philips Research and several other institutions to realize truly simultaneous, fully integrated, whole-body TOF-PET/MRI technology for concurrent functional and anatomical imaging (http://www.sublima-pet-mr.eu/). It will combine the extremely sensitive functional imaging possibilities of PET with the excellent soft-tissue contrast and complementary functional imaging capabilities of MRI.
SUBLIMA aims to push TOF-PET to the physical limits by introducing new methods and technologies in every part of the imaging chain. At TU Delft we have recently established a world-record coincidence resolving time (CRT) of ~100 picoseconds. Within SUBLIMA we will take this research forward by focusing on a novel, compact, scalable, MR-compatible PET detector concept that makes use of new scintillation materials, new solid-state light sensing technology, and real-time, digital signal processing, which will form the basis for PET systems with unsurpassed imaging performance.
For this project we are looking for enthusiastic and creative young physicists who are motivated to push the limits in medical imaging instrumentation. You will be based at the section Radiation Detection & Medical imaging (RD&M) of the Faculty of Applied Sciences of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and you will work closely together with colleagues from other institutions involved in the project.
Applicants for the PhD and Postdoc positions need to have an MSc or PhD degree, respectively, in Physics or Applied Physics. We are looking for candidates with affinity for experimental physics, data acquisition, signal processing, Monte Carlo modeling, and system analysis. Experience in relevant areas of physics and technology, such as ionizing radiation physics, radiation detection technology, scintillator physics, electronics, etc., is a plus.
Good communication skills and excellent English are requested. You should possess a pro-active, independent, problem-solving, and result-oriented work attitude. Successful candidates will be expected to publish their results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and to participate actively in international conferences. PhD students must also write a PhD thesis.
To apply, please e-mail a detailed CV along with a letter of application, a list of references, transcripts, a publications list, and an abstract of your MSc or PhD thesis, before March 1, 2011, to:
