About the Fellowship
About Tim Toohig
|The LHC Accelerator Research Program, LARP, is pleased to announce postdoctoral research positions in accelerator science for recent PhDs in physics or engineering. These positions are explicitly for studies and activities concerning CERN's Large Hadron Collider. The term of the Fellowship is two years extendable to three, approximately half of which will be spent at CERN and the remainder at a U.S. DOE laboratory involved in the LARP collaboration.
LARP is a collaborative initiative of the U.S. DOE Office of Science, Division of High Energy Physics, and DOE Office of Science laboratories. LARP's mission is to study and improve the operation of the LHC by helping with commissioning activities, by actively participating in accelerator research on the collider, and by pursuing R&D on instruments, magnets, and other equipment to facilitate a luminosity upgrade.
The laboratories presently involved in LARP are Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Fermilab and Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The choice of resident laboratory for each Fellow will be negotiated, and will depend on each individual's chosen and approved research interest. The present activities of LARP include accelerator instrumentation and diagnostics, advanced superconducting magnet R&D, and beam physics calculations and simulations. LARP scientists, engineers and postdocs, including Toohig Fellows, will participate in the equipment and beam commissioning of the LHC. It is expected that other activities might become part of the LARP mission as need and resources permit.
The Toohig Fellowships are in honor of the late Dr. Timothy Toohig, a physicist and Jesuit priest, who devoted his life to promoting accelerator science and increasing understanding, communication and collaboration among scientists of all nations and religions.
A recent Ph.D. or equivalent in physics or engineering is required. Please forward a CV and the names and addresses of three (3) references to:
Dr. John Fox
