On going research activities include electron and proton acceleration, X and gamma-ray generation, as well as applications of the produced high energy radiation. In this context, ILIL is looking for 2 young (< 36 years old) scientists for 2-year post-doc fellowships each (net salary approx 1600 euro/month), to be hired in the framework of the project ARCO-CNR “LASERPIXE”, recently funded by Regione Toscana (participating partners: National Institute of Optics – CNR, Institute of Clinical Physiology – CNR, INFN – Sezione di Firenze, VCS Parma). The activity will concern the application of laser driven (all-optical) high-energy charged particles and secondary X/gamma radiation in medicine and non-destructive elemental analysis (for instance X-ray tomography and Particle Induce X-ray Emission – PIXE). A PhD or 3 years post-graduate experience in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics or Engineering is required, along with a good knowledge of spoken and written English.
Deadline: 15 january 2018
