Job Description



The Magnet Science and Technology Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) is seeking an exceptional individual for a Research Analyst position for magnet design and system analysis. Position level will be commensurate with experience.


The NHMFL is an NSF-funded user facility that operates the world’s most powerful electro- magnets at Florida State University, the Univ. of Florida and Los Alamos National Lab including a 45 T dc magnet and a 35.2 T (1.5 GHz) NMR magnet. Present projects include development of a 40 T all-superconducting magnet. Our long-term plan includes development of 30 T NMR magnets, neutron scattering magnets, and resistive-superconducting hybrid magnets up to 60 T.


This position will primarily involve structural mechanics, but also electromagnetic, and thermal analysis with system design in the future as new projects develop. The incumbent will be organizing and carrying out work that includes numerical simulation (ANSYS, COMSOL, C++, or similar), among other tasks like providing studies and reports. The incumbent will play a strong contributing role in the development of next generation high-field magnet systems. Presenting results in international conferences and publishing in peer-reviewed journals is expected. Preparation of reports and technical papers is required.

Preferred and Required Qualifications

Qualifications include a Ph.D. or masters with 3+ years of experience in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, Physics, or Applied Mathematics, or equivalent qualifications based on professional experience with a demonstrated record of achievement in research.

We are seeking candidates who are highly motivated and eager to work flexibly and creatively in a cross-disciplinary team environment.  Good communications skills are required.
