SALARY RANGE: $53,200 - $84,000 (SS I)

Jefferson Lab has an opening for an entry-level accelerator scientist 
staff position to participate in the structure design, simulation and 
measurement for superconducting radio frequency (SRF) accelerator 
components and systems. The incumbent will focus on using comprehensive 
multi-physics (electromagnetic to mechanical) simulation codes including 
those developed under the Scientific Discovery through Advanced 
Computing (SciDAC) program and Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) 
collaborations programs. He/she should have previous experience running 
and debugging parallel processing codes on a large local cluster or on 
the NERSC supercomputer.

Under minimum supervision, he/she should independently benchmark, 
feedback to code developers and skillfully use these codes to support 
project needs for accelerator structure design and modification. He/she 
should help the code developers to enhance their codes’ accuracy and 
capability with analytical and experimental data.

The ideal candidate should also have experimental background in the SRF 
or the electron beam based R&D experiments, such as those carried out at 
JLab’s test and accelerator facilities. With his/her simulation results, 
he/she will also help the developments of accelerator production QA/QC 
procedure for various projects, which could include JLab’s 12GeV 
upgrade, the JLamp light source proposal and work for others such as 
deflecting cavity development for Argonne National Lab .
Minimum Qualifications 	PhD in Physics or Electrical engineering and a 
track record of publication in advanced research is required. Post doc 
training in computer simulations or in an experimental project is 
desired. The candidate must be able to work in collaboration with others 
to solve complex problems efficiently and be able to communicate 
effectively with a diverse group of individuals ranging from staff to 
international colleagues.

Additionally, the candidate needs to be proficient with different 
programming languages, such as C++, Java, Mathematica, and Matlab. 
Previous experience as a system administrator for Unix operation system. 
Experience or education in microwave engineering, computer science, or 
particle beam dynamics is a plus. Demonstrated ability to understand and 
comply with safe-work procedures applied to all Jefferson Lab 
activities, including the qualifications for radiation and electrical
