Fermilab/IIT Joint Appointment

Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the Division of Physics at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) are seeking applications for a joint tenure track position in accelerator physics at the level of Assistant Professor starting as early as June 2010. This position offers the unique opportunity to carry out accelerator physics related research in both national laboratory and university settings. The position will be a joint appointment funded 50% by the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and 50% by IIT, with a commensurate reduction in the IIT teaching load. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to the research and development effort at Fermilab in one of the following areas; the study of material properties relevant to SRF cavity or accelerator component design; high beam power target design for neutrino production; magnet design work for advanced accelerator applications such as muon beam cooling; or beam dynamics and diagnostics of importance to the evolution of Project-X and Muon Collider/Neutrino Factory research program. The candidate’s duties at IIT include teaching physics courses at the graduate and undergraduate level, and contribution to the further development of the accelerator physics research program at IIT.

Minimum qualification requirements:
• Ph.D. in physics.
• Postdoctoral experience (2+ years) in beam physics or materials research.

Preferred qualifications include any relevant experience in one of the following areas:
• Beam target design.
• Fundamental research relating to the development of materials used in accelerators.
• Beam dynamics or diagnostics development for high-brightness, low emittance beams.
• Magnet systems design and development.

To apply: Submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interest and experience, a statement of teaching interests and philosophies, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to physics search@bcps.iit.edu, c/o Prof. Linda Spentzouris.

Illinois Institute of Technology and Fermilab are equal opportunity, affirmative action employers. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
