Application Deadline: April 11, 2020.
The Magnet Science and Technology Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (MagLab) is seeking an exceptional individual for a Research Faculty position for magnet design, system analysis and project management. 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 electromagnetic, structural, and thermal analysis with system design and project management in the future as new projects develop. The incumbent will be organizing and carrying out work that includes numerical simulation (COMSOL, ANSYS, C++, etc.), component testing, data analysis, among other tasks like providing studies and reports, which enables the department to develop a deep understanding of advanced high-field magnet systems and successfully design and construct such magnets. Will play a leading 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 equivalent 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. A background in magnet technology, superconductivity, cryogenics and/or structural mechanics is required. Very good communications skills and the ability to interact constructively with physicists, engineers, designers, technicians and other lab personnel are required.
The MagLab is operated for the National Science Foundation by a collaboration of institutions comprising Florida State University, the University of Florida, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
