One of 13 positions offered by the University of Granada aimed at university graduates and doctoral degree holders to carry out a research, training and mobility programme at international research centres and laboratories related to the IFMIF-DONES project
- To carry out beam dynamics simulations and iterate these with respect to the relevant experimental results.
- To assist with commission planning with a view to optimise beam characteristics of the LIPAc accelerator in coordination with the accelerator operation team
- To participate to the beam commissioning and the operation of the LIPAc, including the operation of the main sub-systems (ion source,RFQ, MEBT, HEBT, superconducting linacs, and associated diagnostics),
- To assist in operating, troubleshooting and repairing elements part of the LIPAc.
- To write and to have approved procedures/report to safely and efficiently perform tasks.
LIPAc, the Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator, is an accelerator using superconducting linac presently under installation and commissioning in Rokkasho Fusion Research Institute in Japan in the framework of the IFMIF/EVEDA project. The goal of the IFMIF/EVEDA project is to validate the technological concept of a Li(d,n) fusion relevant neutron source for materials testing. It is being implemented under the Broader Approach Agreement between Japan and EURATOM in the field of Fusion Energy Research running until December 2019. LIPAc aims at running a deuterons beam of 9 MeV at 125 mA in Continuous Wave mode; this performance will break through present accelerator technologies frontiers. LIPAc will validate the technological concept of the 40 MeV accelerator of IFMIFDONES. We are looking for people interested to join the Integrated LIPAc Unit in Rokkasho to reinforce the international team in accelerator technologies and to support the team onsite technically, ensuring the safe and efficient execution of the experimental campaigns.
