The main physics interest is heavy-flavour and resonance production, particle spectra, event topology studies in proton-proton and nuclear collisions at the LHC energies. In the ALICE detector upgrade for RUN 4, we plan to be involved in the physics simulation studies and detector R&D of Forward Calorimeter (FoCal). Candidates with experience of detector simulation will be preferred for the FoCal activities.
Desirable: Experience in data analysis and/or detector simulation/hardware for high energy physics experiments.
Research Associates and Visiting Researchers under DAE-DST, Govt. of India sponsored Project entitled “Indian participation in the ALICE experiment at CERN”
The Indian Institute of Technology Indore invites applications for Research Associates (RA) and
Visiting Researchers for its High Energy Physics Experimental group in ALICE experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN, Geneva. The RA positions are initially for two years duration and maybe extended subjected to satisfactory performance of the candidates.
No. of RA positions: Two (2)
