*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Cornell Laboratory for Accelerator-based Sciences and Education (CLASSE) has an opening for an accelerator physicist (Research Associate) to participate in the CESR Test Accelerator (CesrTA) project. The Cornell Electron Storage Ring has been instrumented for the study of beam physics peculiar to a linear collider damping ring, including electron cloud phenomena, intra-beam scattering, and ion effects. We are developing techniques for identifying and eliminating sources of emittance dilution and instruments for monitoring the size of a single bunch on a single pass. The successful candidate will participate in development of instrumentation for the CESR test accelerator, collection of data during machine study periods, analysis of data, and simulation and modeling of the physics. A PhD in physics or engineering is required and some experience with charged particle beam physics is desirable. The initial appointment is for two years with possibility for extension. Applications should be submitted at and should include a cover letter, a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation. All materials, including all letters of recommendation, must be received by March 1, 2012. Complete applications will be considered immediately. For information about the position, contact Prof. David Rubin at Cornell is an equal-opportunity/affirmative action employer.

Diversity and Inclusion are a part of Cornell University’s heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities.
