Physics Job Center
PHYSICIST - ARIEL TARGETS
Located on the south campus of the University of British Columbia, TRIUMF, Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics, is one of the leading accelerator centers worldwide exploring the structure of matter with a variety of accelerated particle beams. The 500 MeV cyclotron provides the primary proton beams that are used for the majority of TRIUMF’s research programs, which consists of molecular and materials science, nuclear medicine, and nuclear physics and astrophysics. ISAC is a rare isotope beam (RIB) production and acceleration facility with the highest power driver beam in the world, producing some of the most intense RIBs of certain species. TRIUMF is currently expanding to construct the Advanced Rare IsotopE Laboratory (ARIEL) which will expand TRIUMF’s (and Canada’s) capabilities to produce and study isotopes for physics and medicine. ARIEL will include a new high power electron linear accelerator as a driver for the production of rare isotopes via photo fission, and a second target for an additional proton beam line.
In support of these activities, our Targets and Ion Sources group has an immediate opening for a Physicist who will develop and model ARIEL isotope production targets to be integrated into the new electron photofission and proton target stations and the corresponding target ion source systems. The first project in this context will be developing a BeO target system for 8Li production driven by the ARIEL e-LINAC.
