We are looking for post-doctoral Research Associate applications from qualified physicists or engineers with demonstrated experience and desire for growth in radiation transport code simulations (neutronics/photonics) and in evaluations of radiation environments to support design, construction and safety during the establishment of FRIB. The successful applicant will work with to the FRIB Radiation Transport Department team and have close interface with other FRIB members, division directors, project leaders, and subject matter experts.
Ph.D. in Physics or Engineering with demonstrated proficiency in simulating and evaluating radiation environments at ion accelerators or at fusion reactors using state-of-the-art radiation transport codes such as FLUKA, MARS15, MCNPX, MCNP6 or PHITS, with excellent verbal, presentation, and technical report writing skills.
Experience in developing radiation transport models from two and three dimensional CAD models, in numerical computation and visualization (PC and UNIX, C, C++, Java, Root, MATLAB, IDL etc.), experience in thermal and hydraulic phenomena related to safe design and performance of equipment in nuclear environments, properties of materials under extreme conditions, knowledge of safety at accelerators.
The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) will be a new national user facility for nuclear science, funded by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DOE-SC), Michigan State University (MSU), and the State of Michigan. Located on campus and operated by MSU, FRIB will provide intense beams of rare isotopes (that is, short-lived nuclei not normally found on Earth). FRIB will enable scientists to make discoveries about the properties of these rare isotopes in order to better understand the physics of nuclei, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and applications for society.
