The Department of Physics wishes to recruit an adjunct research software engineer who will be a GEANT4 specialist. This is to underpin our leading programme in experimental nuclear physics and in nuclear applications, particularly detector development. The main purpose of this function is to develop research software (specifically GEANT4 simulations) under the supervision of senior colleagues and to contribute to the production of research software (specifically GEANT4 simulations). Key responsibilities will include conducting individual and collaborative research projects by the development of appropriate research software. This will include writing up of research results and dissemination through publications, seminar and conference publications. You will contribute to the identification of possible new areas of research. You will assist in the training of other researchers in creating research software i.e. GEANT4 simulations. You will contribute to the preparation of research proposals and applications to external bodies. You will provide guidance to staff and students, as required, as well as coordinating the work of small research teams.
You will have a background to PhD level in a significant area of physics such as nuclear physics or particle physics where GEANT4 has been an important part of your research work. You should be able to present a strong portfolio of previous simulation work with GEANT4 relating to significantly complex simulations which you have developed yourself. This job is advertised for two years in the first instance with the ambition to extend it to a third (and further years) subject to related grant and industrial income.
This post is available on a fixed term basis for 24 months.
