Postdoctoral Research Assistant - Linear Collider Beam Delivery Systems (FONT) (2 posts)

Particle Physics, Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford

Grade 7: 29,837 - 36,661 p.a.

The John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science at the University of Oxford is seeking two highly qualified postdoctoral research assistants to be based in Oxford for work on development of beam delivery systems, and related beam dynamics, instrumentation, feedback and control systems, for application to future electron-positron colliders.

The John Adams Institute is one of the world leading centres in the area of beam delivery systems for future colliders. We contribute to the international design efforts on CLIC and ILC, and in particular to the design of very fast beam-based feedback, feed-forward and instrumentation/control systems via the Feedback On Nanosecond Timescales (FONT) project. The successful candidates will be involved in the design, development, deployment and operation of beam delivery and related systems, including the opportunity for periods of research at international beam test facilities.

The successful candidates will be employed by the University of Oxford full time for a fixed-term of 2 years in the first instance.

The successful candidates will hold a PhD in accelerator physics or a related field. Teaching duties up to 3 hours per week during University term may be required.

Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Philip Burrows p [dot] burrows [at] physics [dot] ox [dot] ac [dot] uk.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.

Please read the "Person Specification and Job Description" before preparing your application. You will be required to upload a Curriculum Vita, a description of research experience and interests and the names and addresses of three referees as part of your online application. In addition you should arrange for the three letters of reference to be sent to Sue Geddes (see below) by the closing date. Applications are acknowledged but not reference letters.

Only applications received promptly by 12.00 noon on 1 October 2014 can be considered.
