Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world’s top 100 universities. The University has 40 000 students and 7 600 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
MAX IV is a Swedish national large-scale research laboratory hosted by Lund University. It provides scientists from Sweden as well as internationally, with state-of-the-art instrumentation for research in areas such as engineering, physics, structural biology, chemistry and nanotechnology. Fully developed it will receive more than 2 000 scientists annually, conducting ground-breaking experiments in materials and life sciences using the brilliant X-ray light. As a national laboratory, MAX IV is operated in agreement with governmental regulations, and in compliance with major funders such as the Swedish Research Council (VR) and the Wallenberg Foundation. 250 people are currently employed at MAX IV Laboratory, and 16 beamlines are funded. The facility is in a ramp-up phase with 3 beamlines now receiving users and 13 more scheduled to be commissioned and built to receive users within the next few years. The facility is dimensioned for 25-28 beamlines.
Within the Insertion Devices Group, the postdoc's role will be:
- To contribute to the development, set up and assembly an innovative magnetic bench in the small gap vacuum chamber of the undulator. The measurement system includes a Hall probe for the local magnetic field measurements and wire system for the magnetic field integral measurements.
- To develop models of permanent magnets, perform 3D magnetostatic simulation and to be involved in magnetic measurement of magnet blocks, sorting and magnetic optimization of an undulator.
- To participate in the study and commissioning of the permanent magnetic insertion devices in the MAX IV rings and LINAC in close collaboration with Accelerator Physics group.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to write publications on the innovative magnetic measurement bench and commissioning results of newly installed insertion devices at the low emittance storage rings and LINAC at MAX IV laboratory.
The position is proposed to candidates owning a Ph.D. degree in physics or engineering relevant to the field of accelerator physics, magnet technology and synchrotron radiation production. Abilities in programming and scripting (Matlab, Mathematica, IGORPRO, …) and in data acquisition is necessary. Knowledge of Magnetic design (RADIA, TOSCA 3D) codes and Synchrotron Radiation (SRW, Spectra) codes. Knowledge in high precision mechanics and motion will be an advantage for the magnetic measurement bench construction and assembly. Good communication skills are a must, including fluency in the English language.
Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the doctoral degree or equivalent is completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.
