Accelerator Scientist (m/f) For the Beam Dynamic and Software Application group - 4139
The ESRF is a multinational research institute, situated in Grenoble, France and financed by 20 countries mostly European. It operates a powerful synchrotron X-ray source with some 30 beamlines (instruments) covering a wide range of scientific research in fields such as biology and medicine, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, materials and surface science, and physics. The ESRF employs about 600 staff and is organized as a French société civile.
As a member of the Beam Dynamics Group you will perform beam studies coupled with advanced accelerator computations, aimed at achieving the performance required for this new lattice. You will participate in the Technical Design Study presently in progress and in the following phases of the project.
More specifically, your activities within the group will include, in the framework of the Phase II upgrade:
Optimization of the linear optics
Optimization of the Dynamic Aperture
Engineering integration of the lattice
Collective effects studies and minimization of their impact on the overall performances
Injection system optimization
Development of tuning tools
Additionally, in the framework of the current ESRF Accelerator Complex, activities will include:
Performing beam studies
Advanced accelerator computation studies
Development of modelling tools
General optimization of the Accelerator Complex performances
In conjunction with all technically competent staff, you will work up to 15% of your time on shift to operate the machine for service to users.
The Accelerator and Source Division has a major role in the preparation of Phase II of the ESRF Upgrade. In this context, the Beam Dynamics Group is responsible for the definition of the main parameters of a new lattice able to deliver a horizontal emittance of the electron beam smaller than 150 pm.
The successful candidate should hold a PhD and should be an experienced accelerator physicist having acquired several years’ experience in lattice design, preferably in a third generation synchrotron source. Team work capability is essential. A good knowledge of English is required.
The working language of the ESRF is English. For further information on employment terms and conditions, please refer to http://www.esrf.fr/Jobs/Conditions. The ESRF is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from disabled persons.
Appointments are for a fixed period of up to 5 years.
