In 2017 CERN will, for the fourth time, organize a Beamline for Schools (BL4S) competition. Details about the editions of 2014 to 2016 can be found at: http://beamline-for-schools.web.cern.ch/
Teams of high school students from around the world can make a proposal for an experiment at the T9 beam line of the PS accelerator. The proposals will be evaluated by a committee of experiences physicists and one or two winners will be nominated.
In the framework of this project CERN is looking for two young researchers (physicist, computer scientist or engineer).
The candidates will be responsible of the preparation and execution of the winner experiments.
In particular, the candidates will be in charge of:
The main task will be the setting up of the TDAQ system of the experiments on the basis of the S/W that has been developed in 2014-2016. Depending on the experiment that will be chosen as the winners of the competition the candidates will have to:
During the execution of the experiments (10 days in August, September or October 2017) the candidates will be fully responsible for the overall control of the experiment and will help the winning teams to achieve their scientific goals.
In order to fulfill this role, the candidates have to have a solid background in particle physics, computing science or electronics. Experience with small scale experiments would be an advantage. In addition, the candidates should have basic skills in S/W development, detector construction and project management.
The candidates will work together as a team. In addition, the BL4S project leader as well as experts from CERN will provide help. Furthermore, a lot of documentation is available from previous years.
The candidates will be employed as Project Associates from 1 February 2017 to (at least) 30 September 2017.
