SRF Group Research Associate Cornell University

CLASSE (Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education) has an opening for a Research Associate position in the SRF (Superconducting Radio Frequency) Group. This position requires a doctoral degree in physics or applied physics, and at least 4 years of experience in SRF research (including PhD research).

Cornell’s SRF Group conducts a wide variety of fundamental SRF science and technology R&D activities, and currently supports two SRF driven accelerators at CLASSE (the Cornell Electron Storage Ring CESR, and CBETA, a novel Energy-Recovery-Linac test accelerator).

The successful candidate’s primary focus will be on the development, commissioning, operation, and optimization of RF and SRF accelerator systems, with ample opportunities for cutting-edge research and career development. In addition, the successful candidate will conduct and lead fundamental SRF research activities.

This is an initial 3-year appointment with expectation for renewal, subject to mutual satisfaction and availability of funds. Applicants should have demonstrated experience in at least one of the following areas (multiple areas will be considered definite assets): SRF cavity fabrication, preparation, cryogenic testing, and data analysis; SRF technology design, fabrication, commissioning, and operation; RF simulations and measurements; RF technology and LLRF controls for SRF accelerators. Strong written and verbal communication skills as well as the ability to work independently and in a diverse team are expected.

Located on the campus of a premier Ivy League Research University, CLASSE has a long history of excellence in various aspects of accelerator-related sciences and technology. Cornell provides an intellectually stimulating research environment with opportunities to work with undergraduate and graduate students on collaborative research. Cornell’s SRF group has strong worldwide collaborations with laboratories and industrial partners, and the successful candidate is expected to further foster these.

Applications should be submitted at and should include a cover letter, a CV, a list of publications, and a detailed summary of research experience and interests. Applicants must arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation uploaded, as per instructions on the academicjobsonline website.
