Walter Venturini Delsolaro of CERN will be giving the next joint UK accelerator seminar on Thursday 18th of November at 16:15. The talk will be given on Zoom, details of which can be found on the seminar series Indico page.
The next seminar in the joint UK seminar series will be held on Thursday 11th November at 16:15. Dr. Peter Jurgen Spiller will be giving a talk on Layout, Goals and Construction Status of the International Accelerator Facility FAIR. Further details and a Zoom link can be found on the seminar series Indico page.
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant at the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science.
The post is available for a fixed-term duration of 36 months and is grade 7: £33,309 - £40,927 pa.
The John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science at the University of Oxford and Diamond Light Source Ltd. are seeking a highly qualified post-doctoral research assistant to carry out research in the area of accelerator physics and in particular into collective effects in multi-bend achromat storage rings for synchrotron light sources.
The successful candidate will work with members of the Diamond Accelerator Physics Group in studies of collective effects relevant to the Diamond-II upgrade. These studies will establish how the electron beam interacts with its surrounding environment through wakefields or particle-ion interactions, each of which can potentially degrade the beam properties or cause it to become unstable. The successful candidate will investigate ways to mitigate these effects, such as the use of harmonic cavities, feedback systems or changes to the machine optics, and will actively collaborate with other technical groups working on the design.
The next seminar in the joint UK seminar series will be held on extraordinary time of 16:15 on Wednesday 3rd November. Dr. Maurizio Vretenar of CERN will be giving a talk on The CERN Next Ion Medical Machine Study: Towards a Next Generation of Accelerators for Ion Therapy of Cancer. Further details and a Zoom link can be found on the seminar series Indico page.
As is traditional we will hold an end-of-year ‘JAI Fest’ to celebrate the research achievements of JAI members, focussing on the work of our students and postdocs. A preliminary date for the 2021 Fest is December 10th, so pencil it into your diaries (or modern electronic equivalent).
