Job Description


The Applied Superconductivity Center (ASC) at the Florida State University (FSU) and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL) invites applications for an HTS magnet technology research faculty position. With a particular focus on superconductivity and its applications, ranging from general magnet science and engineering to high energy physics and fusion related magnet projects, the ASC is unique in its ability to offer expertise anywhere within the spectrum of superconducting materials to the development of superconducting magnets. The successful candidate will be expected to perform R&D on projects involving single-strand and cable wound ultra-high-field magnets. The position will focus on advancing the readiness of HTS magnet technology for applications in compact research magnets, >1 GHz NMR, fusion, and high energy physics related magnet technology. We like to encourage anyone who feels up to the challenge of doing frontline R&D to apply.


Design, Testing, Data analysis, and modeling of HTS magnets including both strand-based and cable based ultra-high field inserts. Development of diagnostics for HTS magnet systems.  Leading a highly motivated R&D team.  Mentor students and technicians at various levels.  Post-mortem analysis of magnets including optical and electron microscopy and electromagnetic characterization of conductor samples.  Presenting technical results in meetings and conferences and preparing technical reports. Managing and expanding collaborations with industry, national lab, and university partners. Manage external research grants.
