Welcome to the department of physics of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany.
The EDELWEISS experiment at the Modane underground lab is searching for Dark Matter. Despite 1800m of rock overburden, a few cosmic muons reach the experiment and induce neutron background as shown in this GEANT4 MC simulation. The Institut für Experimentelle Teilchenphysik measures these muon-induced neutrons withz dedicated detectors in the undergound lab.
There is an opening for a full professorship (W3) in Experimental Particle Physics at the Institute of Experimental Particle Physics (ETP).
We are looking for an outstanding scientist working in the area of experimental particle physics. We are particularly interested in a scientist who pursues precision measurements and searches for physics beyond the Standard Model at high-energy particle accelerators and initiates new research directions at future international large-scale facilities.
