Job ref: N/A

ELI Beamlines research centre in Dolní Břežany is part of pan-European infrastructure ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) representing a unique tool of support of scientific excellence in Europe by making available its capacities to the best scientific teams across the world. The aim of ELI Beamlines is to establish the most intensive laser system in the world and to operate it on a long-term basis. Due to ultra-high performances of 10 PW (1 petawatt =  1,000,000,000,000,000 watts) and concentrated intensities of up to 1024 W/cm2, we can offer our users a unique source of radiation and beams of accelerated particles. The so called beamlines will enable groundbraking research in the area of physics and science dealing with materials, but also in biomedicine and laboratory astrophysics and many other fields. ELI Beamlines is part of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, and it was open in 2015.  
The Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences is a holder of the HR Excellence in Research Award. It is awarded by the European Commission to institutions which put significant effort into improving their HR strategy and ensuring professional and ethical working conditions.  

 Monte Carlo specialist
The candidate is supposed to work predominantly on the following topics:

• development of a coupling between PIC and FLUKA Monte Carlo simulations • Monte Carlo simulations for interactions and applications of both high energy electrons and muons  • software development for Monte Carlo simulations • evaluation of radiation fields by means of Monte Carlo simulations • design and optimization of devices such as beam dumps, shielding, etc. • close and active cooperation with experimental groups and collaborating Institutes • possible participation in radiation protection operational activities and experimental activities with electron and muon beams
• relevant university degree in physics or engineering or research experience
• good knowledge of FLUKA Monte Carlo transport code
• good knowledge of Linux/Unix OS
• good knowledge of at least one high level software for physics (e.g. Fortran, C/C++, Python) and at least one scripting language • knowledge and experience of electron and muon physics
• ability to present and document the work done
• availability to travel as required by necessity
• experience working in an international scientific laboratory
• fluency in English (both written and spoken);
• ability to proficiently work both independently and in a team
Desired additional qualifications:
• knowledge of other Monte Carlo transport codes and PIC codes
• experience in radiation protection, detectors and dosimetry
• experience in Personnel Protection System and/or Beam Containment System or Radiation Protection Programs (e.g. procedure definition, personnel training) for laboratories or other relevant sites
We offer:

• the opportunity to participate in this unique scientific project
•  flexible working hours
• nice working environment
• career growth
• lunch vouchers, pension contribution and 5 sick days
• support of leisure time activities
Applications, containing CV, cover letter, contacts of references, and any other material the candidate considers relevant, should be sent to Mrs. Jana Ženíšková, HR specialist (jana.zeniskova@eli-beams.eu, +420 - 601560322).
