At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern.
Are you interested in research, design and optimization of the protection methods of Nb3Sn and High Critical Temperature Superconducting (HTS) magnets for future particle accelerators? Take Part!
Within the TE Department, the MPE group provides support to the operation of the entire accelerator complex and develops, operates and maintains state of the art technology for magnet circuit protection and interlock systems.
The superconducting magnet circuits of CERN's largest accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), operate with currents of up to 12 kA and stored energies of more than 1 GJ. The TE-MPE-PE section develops tools to better understand the behaviour and protection of these circuits, conducts studies of emerging protection issues, and monitors the evolution of their performance, see also https://twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/viewauth/TEMPEPE/. Furthermore, the section participates in all design studies for the magnet circuits of upcoming upgrades of the LHC and future accelerators.
As applied physicist in the TE-MPE-PE Section, you will:
PhD or equivalent relevant experience in the field of applied physics, electrical engineering, or a related field.
The experience required for this post is:
Spoken and written English: ability to draw-up technical specifications and/or scientific reports, and/or to make oral presentations. Basic knowledge of French language or an undertaking to acquire it rapidly.
