This position represents an open-ended call for applicants. Applications and communications from qualified, interested candidates are welcome at any time. The position will be removed when it has been filled.

This position is open to those with or finishing an undergraduate degree in physics, engineering, or related equivalent who have a strong interest in dark matter detection. This opportunity is flexible in term, and may be a 2 year Master’s of Science (MSc) or 4 year Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) position depending on the interest of the successful candidate. Domestic and International candidates are welcome to apply.

The successful candidate will work on the filtering system for the DarkSide-20K experiment under the supervision of Prof. Fabrice Retière at TRIUMF in Vancouver, British Columbia. On-site work will be a major component of this position, and includes contributing to early dark matter search analysis.

The potential project would include the design, development, and testing of the triggering and filtering system for DarkSide-20k, which is critical to keeping the liquid Argon free of impurities and contaminating the experiment.

Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Fabrice to begin the application process. Please note that the deadline to apply for Fall semester acceptance is April 1, but applications are welcome at any time.
