The Particle Physics Division (DPhP - Département de physique des particules) of the Institute of Research into the Fundamental Laws of the Universe (IRFU) opens a call for applications for a scientist staff position in particle physics in 2018. We welcome applications from experimental particle physicists with outstanding scientific records and a marked instrumental profile, willing to develop and build instruments, in the first place cameras to equip some telescopes for the CTA observatory in high energy gamma ray astronomy or low noise cryogenic detectors for the search of neutrinoless double beta decays. A professional experience of up to about six years since the PhD is recommended. The application should be sent in pdf-format at the latest on February 12th, 2018. Further details on the application procedure may be found in the following link: call for applications.

The discovery of a new type of gravitational wave
Using a range of detectors developed with the participation of the CEA, physicists at CEA-Irfu have scrutinized the region from which the gravitational wave was detected on August 17, 2017 by LIGO-VIRGO facilities. Unlike the four previous detections of waves of the same type discovered since 2015, ... More »

In the field of medical imaging, a IRFU team has launched a challenge: their goal is to image the brain activity with a precision of 1 mm3. Its name: CaLIPSO. The idea consists in an innovative detector technology: both light and ionisation signals produced by particle interactions are detected. ... More »
