Ways to make a real, meaningful contribution to CREDO

1. Download the particle detect application and start the detection successfully

Download the CREDO Detector app to your Android or IOS smartphone. And if you don’t have one or the app on your device doesn’t work as well, you can still use our browser version of the app.

Instructions to the Android application can be found here (ENG, PL)
Instructions for web-detector (PL)

Before switching on the application, cover the camera

To do this, you can use a fridge magnet (as in the photo) and place it between the lens and the phone case.
You can also use a piece of thick dark tape to cover the lens – put a piece of cardboard between the tape and the lens (in order not to destroy, dirty the lens).

2. Join the game/competition and show that your team is the best

Gather your team and join the events that the CREDO project organizes for their users. You can join the “particle hunters” competition (an event (competition) organized every year during the school education from October to June) and the particle catching team game “Look deep into the universe organized together with the project “Physics – the key to understanding the world” (organized only in Poland) – you can find more information about this on the pages dedicated to these events.

3. Check how yours and others’ detections look.

Visit the website api.credo.science, find your detections e.g. by looking at your team’s results at api.credo.science/web/team/[enter your team name here] (i.e. api.credo.science/web/team/FizykaKluczem) and share with others when you see something unusual.

Consider working for CREDO in Kraków!

A postdoc position at the Instytut Fizyki Jądrowej PAN (Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences), Kraków, Poland, under the supervision of the CREDO Project Coordinator Piotr Homola, can be requested via the PASIFIC – Postdoctoral Fellowships program  – see the details below.
For questions concerning the CREDO group and activities at INP PAS please contact us at contact@credo.science.

 

The Office of Scientific Excellence of the Polish Academy of Sciences informs about the launch of the PASIFIC programme co-financed by the European Union under the MSCA COFUND. The aim of the programme is to enable 50 scientists to spend two years in institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The application is open to scientists* at postdoctoral level, of any nationality and representing any area of research.
PASIFIC program offers:

a) financing the implementation of an individual research project and support in creating a long-term career development plan;
b) participation in scientific and supplementary training courses at host institutes of the Polish Academy of Sciences;
c) a wide range of training courses, trainings and workshops, concerning, among others, the possibilities of financing research in Poland and Europe, writing applications for research grants, intellectual property rights and project management;
d) possibility of a maximum 6-month internship in the non-academic sector.
e) Scholarship holders will be granted a monthly salary of EUR 2 500 and if you decide to move with your family there will be an extra financial support – check the details here: pasific.pan.pl. In addition, the PASIFIC programme will provide researchers with a research budget of up to EUR 93 000 per project. Recruitment will be carried out through two competitions:

I CONTRACT – from 15 March 2021 to 30 June 2021

II CONTRACT – from 15 September 2021 to 31 December 2021

More information about the PASIFIC project can be found on the English website of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
