FRIB will be a new world-leading scientific accelerator facility for nuclear science. FRIB is based on a 400 kW, 200 MeV/u heavy ion linear accelerator and uses projectile fragmentation or fission and in-flight separation to provide a wide variety of high-quality beams of rare isotopes, opening exciting research perspectives in low-energy nuclear science.
The primary mission of FRIB's Scientific Data Acquisition Group is to provide support for the FRIB Scientific Experimental Department with data acquisition solutions and best practices and develop new tools for data taking and analysis. The FRIB Scientific Data Acquisition Group does all this while maintaining and supporting the detector system's integration and interfacing.
The primary function of this position is to perform work in order to develop and support software for digital acquisition systems within the existing FRIB data acquisition and analysis frameworks. The project typically requires knowledge of object-oriented programming languages. In addition to development and maintenance of software, support of experimenters in the use of FRIB data acquisition and analysis tools for the success in their scientific endeavors is required. The candidate will be expected to work in a team environment and author journal articles, conference papers, and technical reports.
