Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) is seeking a scientist of international stature and a proven record of accomplishment for the position of the US Muon Accelerator Program Director. The U.S. DOE Office of High Energy Physics Muon Accelerator Program was created in 2010 to unify the R&D activities in the U.S. aimed at developing the concepts and technologies required for Muon Colliders and Neutrino Factories. These muon based facilities have the potential to discover and explore new exciting fundamental physics, but will require the development of demanding technologies and innovative concepts. The MAP aspires to prove the feasibility of a Muon Collider within the next 5 years, and to make significant contributions to the international effort devoted to developing Neutrino Factories.
The Director is expected to provide leadership and vision for the R&D program, to lead the muon accelerator activities in the US as it enters this present focused R&D phase, and to play a strategic international role in shaping the muon accelerator landscape beyond the US. The Director will oversee all MAP efforts, engage with other laboratories, universities and companies to strengthen the current MAP collaboration and serve as the primary interface with the collaborating institutions.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Physics or Engineering and a proven record of success in handling responsibilities at a senior management level. Applications should be sent directly to Dr. Stuart D. Henderson, Chair of the Search Committee. Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, and three letters of reference and should be received by April 29, 2011.
