The Interactions, Dynamics and Lasers Laboratory (LIDYL), which is part of the CEA’s Institut Rayonnement Matière de Saclay (IRAMIS) and which houses the EMR9000 CNRS-CEA research unit, carries out fundamental research on laser-matter interaction in the ultra-short pulse duration and Ultra-High Intensity (UHI) regimes.
Within the framework of the European EURO-LABS project, PHI group at CEA-Paris Saclay is looking for a
Postdoctoral Scientist in Targets for Machine Learning for laser-driven particle accelerator – (all genders)
with focus on the implementation of Machine Learning techniques on UHI100 laser facility to optimize laser-plasma accelerator for applications in radiotherapy.
The successful candidate will join the work package “Machine Learning” in the EURO-LABS project. As part of the team, which performs laser-driven electron acceleration experiments for applications, one of the main responsibilities will be to adapt a ML toolkit, developed by GSI (Germany) in the context of the project. Taking into account that the tool is conceived for conventional accelerators, it will have to be adapted to the specificities of Laser Plasma Accelerators and tested on our experimental facility for validation on applications targeting new innovative particle sources for radiotherapy.
Application Deadline : application accepted until the position is filled
Type of Contract : Post-doctorat
Contract Period : 12 months
Workplace : Paris-Saclay (FRANCE)
