Project Description:

The PPRC have a number of ongoing solid state detector development programmes ranging from silicon microstrip and pixel detectors through to organic radiation detector development (in collaboration with members of CCMMP). There are opportunities to work on device design and testing, simulation, DAQ, system build, commissioning and external test beam campaigns.

Requirements:

The project will involve actively working in the laboratories within SPA, including our clean rooms, and will require travel to external sites in order to perform field tests of equipment developed.
