The Saclay laboratory of Nuclear Physics of the CEA IRFU, Institute of
Research on the Fundamental  laws of the Universe, has an opening for a

Post-doctoral position in experimental hadronic physics.

The contract will have a duration of two years. The candidate will join
the research activities of the Saclay team in the COMPASS experiment at
CERN, taking part in the ongoing projects.

His work will be primarily focused on data analysis in view of the
extraction of quark fragmentation functions (FF). These quantities, as
well as the parton distributions, are universal quantities that describe
many different reactions. The knowledge of FF is particularly weak in
the sector of strange quarks. COMPASS has collected high statistics data
on semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering of high energy muons off a
proton target, with production of kaons. These data, once analyzed, will
provide decisive inputs to global QCD analyses in view of the extraction
of quark FFs. Simulations are also needed to prepare future data taking.

The candidate is expected to play a leading role in the data analysis
and also to join the effort of the Saclay team in detector commissioning
and operation. In particular, he will be involved in the preparation of
the detectors for the forthcoming data taking periods in 2014 and 2015.
A Ph.D. degree in physics is required and previous experience in data
analysis and/or simulation with the tools used in high energy physics
(C++, ROOT) will be highly appreciated.

Candidates are invited to submit a letter of application, a curriculum
vitae, and a list of publications to fabienne.kunne at cea.fr 
<mailto:fabienne.kunne at cea.fr>. Applicants
should  arrange to have up to three letters of reference sent by email
by their authors.

The dead line for applications is March 15, 2014.
