Post-doctoral Positions in R&D of High Field Superconducting Magnets for Future Particle Accelerators

Sep 22, 2016     Email     PrintText Size

The Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences invites applications for several postdoctoral fellow positions in advanced superconducting magnet R&D for future particle accelerators.  

IHEP leads the Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC) and Super Proton Proton Collider (SPPC) projects, for which R&D of critical technologies is ongoing. SPPC will need thousands of 20-T level accelerator magnets in 20 years’ time. A long term R&D roadmap has been made aiming to realize the 20-T magnets in time and at a reasonable cost.  

The successful applicants will be based in Beijing, China. A doctoral degree in engineering or materials science is required. Knowledge of Chinese language is useful but not required. The successful applicants will be expected to play an important role in the development of high field Nb3Sn and HTS subscale magnets as steps towards the 20-T level accelerator magnets.  

The initial appointments will be for a period of two years with possible extension for another two years. The applications will be reviewed as soon as they are received and the positions will remain open until they are filled. Outstanding candidates will be recommended to apply for the “Chung-Yao Chao Fellowship” which provides an additional stipend of 80k RMB (12.8k USD) per year for each successful candidate. 

Job location:  

Beijing, China 


Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, a list of publications, and three letters of recommendation to Prof. XU Qingjin (xuqj@ihep.ac.cn) with the email subject header “Postdoc Search”. 

Closing date: 

The positions will remain open until they are filled.
