Assistant in Research

Job ID: 54297

Location: Tallahassee

Application Deadline: Open until filled

The Magnet Science and Technology Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (National MagLab) is seeking an exceptional individual for a Research Analyst position for magnet design and system analysis. Position level will be commensurate with experience.

The MagLab is an NSF-funded user facility that operates the world’s most powerful electro- magnets at Florida State University, the Univ. of Florida and Los Alamos National Lab including a 45 T dc magnet and a 35.2 T (1.5 GHz) NMR magnet. Present projects include development of a 40 T all-superconducting magnet. Our long-term plan includes development of 30 T NMR magnets, neutron scattering magnets, and resistive-superconducting hybrid magnets up to 60 T.

This position will primarily involve structural mechanics, but also electromagnetic, and thermal analysis with system design in the future as new projects develop. The incumbent will be organizing and carrying out work that includes numerical simulation (ANSYS, COMSOL, C++, or similar), among other tasks like providing studies and reports. The incumbent will play a strong contributing role in the development of next generation high-field magnet systems. Presenting results in international conferences and publishing in peer-reviewed journals is expected. Preparation of reports and technical papers is required.

Qualifications include a Ph.D. or masters with 3+ years of experience in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, Physics, or Applied Mathematics, or equivalent qualifications based on professional experience with a demonstrated record of achievement in research. We are seeking candidates who are highly motivated and eager to work flexibly and creatively in a cross-disciplinary team environment. Good communications skills are required.

Apply to Florida State University at and reference Job ID #54297. For additional information, please contact Ms. Bettina Roberson. The position is listed as open until filled.

The MagLab is operated for the National Science Foundation by a collaboration of institutions comprising FSU, UF, and LANL. FSU is an Equal Opportunity/Access/Affirmative Action/Pro Disabled & Veteran Employer. We encourage women and all underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to apply.
