CLASSE (Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education) has an opening for the position of Deputy Group Leader of the SRF (Superconducting Radio Frequency) Group. The SRF Group conducts a wide variety of SRF science and technology R&D activities, and 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 and operation of these SRF accelerators systems, with significant responsibilities and ample opportunities for cutting-edge research. In addition, the successful candidate will participate in general SRF research activities, will help coordinate manpower and resources, and will contribute to defining and establishing new R&D activities. 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.
This is an initial 5-year appointment with expectation for renewal, subject to mutual satisfaction and availability of funds. This Sr. Research Associate position requires a doctoral degree in physics, applied physics, or engineering sciences, and at least 10 years of experience in SRF operation. The successful candidate should have demonstrated leadership in the field and should have significant experience in SRF system design, fabrication, and operation, as well as in general SRF R&D. Knowledge in RF hardware and LLRF controls is desirable.
