The Department of Physics seeks an outstanding individual for a tenure-track position in accelerator physics. The search will focus on the assistant professor level. In addition to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses, responsibilities include the supervision of undergraduate and graduate students in research of the dynamics of bright beams for applications ranging across storage ring light sources, high energy colliders and electron microscopes. This research will take advantage of the unique capabilities and instrumentation of the Cornell Electron Storage Ring (CESR), which is equipped to address phenomena including electron cloud, ions, nonlinear dynamics, and intrabeam scattering. Cornell has a broad program in accelerator science, with current focus areas in: high brightness electron sources, superconducting RF accelerating devices, the design and development of a medium energy 4-turn Energy Recovery Linac, and beam dynamics. The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to contribute to a new interdisciplinary focus on innovative approaches to increasing beam brightness. A PhD in physics or an appropriate equivalent is required. The position will be available from July 1, 2017, or earlier by negotiation, with an initial appointment of three years. Please send an application and at least three letters of reference to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/7754 . Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a publication list, a statement of research interests, and a short summary of teaching and research experience. Electronic mail inquiries may be addressed to email@example.com. Applications will be considered as they are received, and applications received before October 15, 2016 will receive full consideration.
