Postdoctoral Researcher in Accelerator Design for FCC-ee

Postdoctoral Researcher in Accelerator Design for FCC-ee

EPFL - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne

Lausanne, Switzerland

Your mission:

The EPFL Laboratory of Particle Accelerator Physics (LPAP) is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to strengthen our interdisciplinary team focusing on the development of an innovative simulation framework for the design of Future Circular Colliders (FCC).

In the context of a challenging project « Accelerator design and simulation framework for FCC-ee: optics and collective effects” funded by the Swiss Accelerator Research and Technology institute (CHART), our laboratory aims to develop a new simulation tool framework to model the particle dynamics in high energy colliders to be used for the FCC-ee design and feasibility studies. This research program covers several scientific disciplines, such as accelerator physics, mathematics, computer science and software engineering. The job will require constant presence at CERN and close collaboration with the FCC-ee design teams.

Main duties and responsibilities include:

  • Coordinate collaborative research activities in the context of developing an extendable and modular simulation framework for beam dynamics studies for the FCC-ee community
  • Contribute to an optimized design of FCC-ee in terms of physics reach and performance
  • Participate in the supervision of PHD students
  • Participate in the writing of articles and other documents related to research activities
  • Participate in the teaching activities of the section, assistance of exercises, experiments and semester projects.

Your profile:

  • Applicants should have completed their Ph.D studies.
  • We expect a strong scientific background and proven track record in accelerator physics, physics-based simulations, numerical optimization and computational design.
  • Experience with modular and collaborative scientific software design and with existing accelerator related software packages, for example BMAD, Lifetrack , MADX, SAD, Sixtrack, GEANT4 and/or collective effects models.
  • Excellent communication skills in English and good team spirit.
