Postdoc positions

Postdoctoral position within BASE (Baryon Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment) at Mainz

We are seeking for a Post Doctoral researcher to work on the high-precision measurement of the g-factor of the proton within BASE (Baryon Antibaryon Symmetry Experiment) in Mainz, Germany.

The candidate is expected to contribute dedicated and independent research. Work location will be the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.

The high-precision comparison of basic properties of matter/antimatter counterparts provides stringent tests of charge-parity-time (CPT) invariance of the Standard Model. The experiments of the BASE collaboration external Link target comparisons of the fundamental properties of protons and antiprotons by determining and comparing their charge-to-mass ratios and magnetic moments (g-factors) in Penning traps.
In the past years, BASE improved the measurement precision of the g-factor of the proton and the antiproton several times. A further significant improvement of the measurement accuracy can be achieved by the application of a new sympathetic cooling scheme. To this end, a new apparatus consisting of five traps has been built in Mainz. Task of the candidate is the technical development work for the application of sympathetic laser cooling on protons.

The candidates are asked to submit the usual documents (CV, Copy of Diploma thesis and PhD thesis) to Prof. Dr. Klaus Blaum (Postal address: Max-Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics, P.O. Box 10 39 80, D-69029 Heidelberg, Germany).
