An Accelerator Scientist position is open at ESS
The European Spallation Source, ESS, a partnership of European countries, is hiring motivated and inspired people to design, construct and operate the world’s most powerful neutron source. We seek ambitious, talented people in different fields who are excited about playing a part in the future of science in Europe.
The work will focus on the challenging aspects of the beam physics of the accelerator, including simulations and taking part in the exciting beam commissioning of the ESS linac. During the period of commissioning the candidate is expected to:
- Perform simulations and beam dynamics studies for the commissioning phase, including behaviour of the space charge dominant beam under off-nominal conditions possible during commissioning and operations.
- Take part in the commissioning studies and machine setup.
- Perform analysis on the data taken during commissioning.
During the steady operation of the accelerator, the candidate is also expected to:
- Participate in machine development shift, in order to bring the linac to a full 5MW operation.
- In the future, overview the machine tuning, train and give expert support to the Operations Team.
In the first two years, this position focuses on tasks related to the licensing of the linac, e.g. radiation hazard analysis of the accelerator.
From the candidate, regular presentations and documentations of the work carried out will be necessary, in collaboration with specialists from a wide range of disciplines.
