Required Qualifications at this Level

Education/Training: A PhD is required for this position Experience:

Six years of professional experience working as an accelerator physicist after receiving a Ph.D. in accelerator physics, free-electron laser physics, or related fields. Working experience in the following areas: accelerator operations, experimental beam physics studies, developing new capabilities for accelerator-based light sources, developing advanced electron beam diagnostics and FEL laser beam diagnostics, research to control photon-beam polarization, and developing new capabilities for accelerator control systems. The candidate should also have had experience in coordinating collaboration with other research groups. Furthermore, the candidate is expected to play an important role in developing the accelerator technologies critical for the next-generation gamma-ray sources. Skills:

Ability to conduct experimental research using the electron beam and free-electron laser (FEL), theoretical and simulation skills to study charged particle beam physics and FEL beam dynamics, and skills to design and develop next-generation advanced light sources using particle accelerators. Ability to work well in a multidisciplinary team environment and ability to interact effectively with and provide support to physics researchers/users who use the accelerators and light sources at TUNL. The Triangle University Nuclear Laboratory (TUNL) is a Department of Energy Center of Excellence in Nuclear Physics. TUNL seeks to hire a full-time Research Scientist.
