Job Opportunities

New! Joint appointment in Accelerator Physics: International Linear Collider beam dynamics and transport,  John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science, University of Oxford, in association with Accelerator Science and Technology Centre, CCLRC Daresbury Laboratory (April 2006)

Applications are invited for a joint appointment at the University Lecturer level in Accelerator Physics. It is expected that the successful candidate will be offered a non-stipendiary College Fellowship in Oxford. The salary will be according to age and experience on a scale up to approx. 40k. The John Adams Institute (JAI) at Oxford is engaged in a major design effort on the International Linear Collider (ILC) as part of the UK Accelerator and Beam Delivery (LC-ABD) project, primarily in the area of the Beam Delivery Systems and Interaction Regions, with strong R&D efforts in beam instrumentation and diagnostics (laserwire and Smith-Purcell profile monitors, beam position monitors), fast beam-based feedback (FONT), and beamline alignment and stabilization systems (LiCAS, StaFF). This work involves close collaboration with the CCLRC Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (ASTeC). In order to further collaborate, the JAI and ASTeC wish to make a joint appointment to contribute to and augment these activities with a research programme focussed on ILC beam dynamics and beam transport simulations. This expertise may also be applicable to the optimization of other challenging electron accelerator designs such as 4GLS and CLIC. Previous experience with ILC-related beam dynamics and transport design work would be an advantage. The Appointee would undertake lecturing and research activities within the JAI at Oxford and within the sub-Department of Particle Physics, as well as research within ASTeC, primarily located at the Daresbury Laboratory. The Appointee would also be expected to foster collaboration with the Cockcroft Institute for Accelerator Science, also located at Daresbury. Further particulars of this post and information on how to apply are available on or from: Mrs. Sue Geddes, Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford OX1 3RH, UK, email:, FAX 0044-1865-273417. Informal enquiries about this post may be made to Professor Ken Peach, The application deadline is 7th May 2006.

The Center for Beam Physics has openings for a Physicist Staff Scientist and 1-2 Post Docs at LBNL (February 2006)

Center for Beam Physics (CBP) has a career Physicist Staff Scientist opportunity. CBP is searching for an Accelerator Physicist with experience in storage ring physics, particularly lattice design, beam dynamics, collective effects, and familiarity with experimental accelerator physics. He/she will be responsible for leading the AFRD effort in support of the International Linear Collider (ILC), planning and implementing forefront research in accelerator physics, particularly in the area of damping rings. The ILC group within AFRD is working under the auspices of the ILC Global Design Effort in developing and studying lattices for damping rings, associated accelerator technologies, and experimental work in support of physics understanding for these demanding rings. The successful applicant will collaborate with other scientists and engineers in AFRD and the ILC Global Design Effort community in pursuing successful designs for the ILC. For more information and to apply, visit: Reference Job Number 018735.

Center for Beam Physics (CBP) also has one to two openings for Physicist Post Docs specializing in theoretical accelerator physics. The successful candidate will be supporting as well as planning the analysis and computation necessary to meet CBP programmatic plans and R&D goals, particularly concerning LBNL's participation in beam dynamics research pertaining to the proposed 8-GeV Proton Driver and Main Injector upgrade at FNAL and/or the ILC damping rings. For more information and to apply, visit: Reference Job Number 018744.

Up to four vacancies are offered for work in Accelerator Physics within the Intense Beams Group of ASTeC, the UK's centre of excellence for accelerator R&D (January 2006)

Based at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, the Group's work spans machine design and beam physics for high power proton and ion accelerators, neutrino factories, FFAG accelerators, and upgrades of ISIS, the world-leading pulsed spallation neutron source. With involvement in European and other international collaborations, the posts offer excellent opportunities for new initiatives and personal development within a stimulating environment. For more information visit: Reference Job Numbers are VN2798: Senior Accelerator Physicist (Band 4) and VN2800: Three Accelerator Physicists (Bands 4, 5 or 6).

The Accelerator and Fusion Research Division (AFRD) has two openings for Post Doc Fellows at LBNL (December 2005)

AFRD solicits applications for the Andrew M. Sessler Postdoctoral Fellowship for excellence in accelerator research.  The research is to be carried out within AFRD's Center for Beam Physics (CBP) and/or the LOASIS Program, and offers the successful applicant the opportunity to work in a rich scientific environment at the forefront of a broad range of accelerator physics studies.  Ongoing research activities include experimental and theoretical work with applications in near-term and far-future projects, and the successful applicant will be expected to make significant contributions to one or more areas, depending on experience and interests.  For more information and to apply, visit: Reference Job Number 018581.

The Superconducting Magnet Program is a key element in the nation's future high energy physics effort. The goal of the program is to design, fabricate, and test innovative magnets that push the frontiers of high magnetic fields in accelerator quality magnets. They are seeking a post doc who  will work under the guidance of senior group members, participating in the ongoing magnet design, fabrication and testing effort. The candidate may also help initiate new projects, publish results in peer-reviewed journals, and present their research at conferences.  For more information and to apply, visit: Reference Job Number 018556.
