Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (known as Fermilab) seeks highly qualified candidates for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the Accelerator Division’s Main Injector Department. The Main Injector Department operates the largest Fermilab Accelerator which currently delivers 730KW of beam power at 120 GeV. We have a series of planned upgrades to increase the beam power to 1.2 MW and eventually to 2.4 MW. The Accelerator performance at these power levels represents a challenge and needs to be well understood.

The position is for a period of up to three (3) years, with the potential for extension considered on a yearly basis thereafter.

You Will:

• Be able to perform Accelerator studies

• Select and analyze the data and write reports.

• Use Accelerator codes to perform beam simulations and predict future machine performance.

• Be able to take control room shifts as required.

• Travel to conferences and present reports on your work.

• Share in the on-call responsibilities of the department.

• Perform other duties as assigned by supervisor.

• Abide by all environment, safety and health regulations.

Qualifications and Essential Job Functions:

• Ph.D. in Experimental Physics or Engineering.
