Michigan State University-Nscl Scientist/Physicist in East Lansing, Michigan
Scientist/Physicist. (East Lansing, MI). Contribute to the commissioning, development and operation of the FRIB accelerator facility by undertaking projects and activities to improve facility performance as measured by beam quality, intensity, power, purity and variety. Design, prototype, develop, implement, and maintain modern beam dynamics optimization and simulation codes, and high level physics applications. Work to enhance the performance of FRIB and provide planned availability of beams on nuclear physics experiments. Design, prototype, develop, implement, and maintain modern high performance accelerator optimization and simulation codes including FLAME, TRACK, IMPACT, COSY Infinity and LISE++. Higher order beam optics optimization of secondary isotope beams in fragment separators. Develop and/or improve high level physics applications, develop and/or improve physics application environment, support and participate in the FRIB beam commissioning. Qualified candidates will possess a Ph.D. in Physics + 2 years of experience in any related position in accelerator physics. Must have expertise in accelerator beam physics as applied to heavy-ion accelerators and secondary isotope beams. Must have experience with beam dynamics and electrodynamics computer programs, modern programming languages being used in computational physics such as Python, FORTRAN and C++. Must have experience with the development of parallel computational codes, large computational data analysis, and development of higher order beam optics for production, and separation and purification of secondary isotope beams for nuclear physics experiments.
