Position Description:
The EIC Accelerator Physics and R&D group has an opening for a physicist to research, develop and design strong hadron cooling electron source and characterize the polarized photocathode. In the EIC, we have two major electron photo-guns. One is a polarized electron high voltage DC (HVDC) gun to generate the polarized beam for collision, another one is an unpolarized HVDC gun to generate high current electron beam to cool the hadron beam. The chosen candidate for this position will fill a key role in characterizing the polarized photocathode and be involved in the design, construction and commissioning the SHC HVDC gun and beamline.
Join BNL at the beginning of this ground-breaking scientific and engineering project and become part of the team building this scientific discovery machine.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
  • Perform space charge beam dynamics, high voltage and, vacuum design and simulation
  • Perform routinely polarization measurement
  • Work with accelerator physicists and engineers to construct and commission the HVDC gun
  • Propose new ideas to solve the challenges
  • Prepare and present material as required for technical reviews, conference, and publication
  • Maintain a safe and respectful workplace environment
Position Requirements
Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
  • PhD in physics or closely related discipline
  • 2 years post PhD related research experience
  • Have worked on superlattice GaAs, and have basic knowledge of polarization measurement
