Full-time, fixed-term, term: 3 years
The detector group at Diamond is looking for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate to work on the characterization and optimization of a new X-ray detector that is currently in development by members of the group. This detector is based upon the latest generation of the Timepix3 read out ASIC chip that will be used for time-resolved experiments at Diamond.
The successful candidate will join a highly dynamic group working at the cutting edge of detector technology.
The successful candidate will carry out the characterization, calibration, and exercise of the Tristan detector based on the Timepix3 chip (https://medipix.web.cern.ch/technology-chip/timepix3-chip). This is necessary for the validation of the data provided by the detector systems and for understanding the characteristics that can lead to further improvements of Tristan. The work will be carried out in close collaboration with the Tristan development team, and with the beamline scientists that use the detector. This may entail the use of simulation tools as well as specific detector tests carried out with the synchrotron beam and with an X-ray set available for use by the group. The candidate may be involved in the work related to the further development of the Tristan system.
The availability of a test beamline at Diamond allows the detector group to evaluate the performance of innovating detector technologies and their application to synchrotron X-ray experiments. Close cooperation with the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory enables access to other world-class facilities as well as the interaction with world-leading detector developers.
