GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt operates one of the leading particle accelerators for science. In the next few years, the new FAIR (FacilityforAntiprotonandIonResearch), one of the world's largest research projects, will be built in international cooperation.
The CBM (CompressedBaryonicMatter) experiment is one of the major experiments to be conducted at this new facility. CBM will investigate strongly interacting matter by measuring heavy-ion collisions, with the ambitious aim to achieve very high interaction rates.
For the CBM Software Group at GSI/FAIR, located in Darmstadt, Germany, we seek at the nearest possible point in time two
Physicists or Computer Scientists (m/w/d)
as developers for the CBM software framework and for reconstruction and analysis algorithms.
Framework Developer (Posting ID 771100-19.141)
The applicant will take active part in the development of the CBM software framework for simulation, online and offline reconstruction, and analysis. Further work areas are the management of software integration and integrity and the maintenance and further development of web-based tools for collaborative software development. From the applicant, we expect a PhD in physics or computer science, excellent knowledge of the C++ programming language, and good knowledge of current computer architectures. Experience in software development and/or administration for large high-energynuclearorparticlephysicsexperimentsisofadvantage.
Developer Reconstruction and Analysis Software (Posting ID 771100-19.142)
The applicant will participate in the development of the CBM software for online and offline reconstruction, bringing it to production readiness for the start of experiment operation in 2025. The emphasis is the development of highly performant and parallel algorithms for track and event reconstruction from experiment raw data. From the applicant, we expect a PhD in physics or computer science, a strong background in algorithm development for high-performance computing, and good knowledge of current computer architectures and concurrency technologies. Experience in data reconstruction in high energy nuclear or particle physics experiments is highly desirable. Both positions require the ability to work in an international research team with appropriate skills in team work and communication in English. We offer to the successful applicants challenging positions at the forefront of nowadays technology, in the context of an international collaboration of about 400 members.
The positions are limited to a period of four years. Salary is equivalent to that for public employees as specified in the collective agreement for public employees (TVöDBund).
GSI promotes the professional development of women and therefore expressly welcomes applications from women. Handicapped persons will be preferentially considered when equally qualified.
If you are interested in one of these positions, please send your application documents with information of your earliest possible starting date and the posting ID until January 6, 2020,to
FAIR GmbH, c/o GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH, Abteilung Personal, Planckstraße1, 64291 Darmstadt, Germany or by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
