Qualifications and Skills:

  • MS or PhD in engineering or physics
  • 3+ years experience with particle accelerator operations or design
  • Authorization to work in the United States

Desired Skills:

Expertise in control systems, low-level rf, and rf modeling is also desired.

Other areas of interest include the following, with an emphasis on computation, modeling and design: beam-plasma and laser-plasma interactions, electromagnetic structures, optical systems, particle scattering and transport, high-power lasers, and diagnostics.
