Job description - School of Engineering and Computing - Full-time

The Experimental Nuclear Physics Research Group at the University of the West of Scotland has internationally recognised research programmes studying the structure and properties of exotic nuclei. Our research is primarily conducted at large overseas facilities such as JYFL (Finland), Legnaro National Laboratory (Italy) and ISOLDE (CERN). We were one of the founding members of the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance, SUPA, which is the pioneering research pooling initiative in physics in Scotland. We are presently seeking to strengthen the nuclear-physics research group with the appointment of a permanent academic staff member at the Lecturer level.

The successful applicant will be based on the Paisley Campus of the University of the West of Scotland and will contribute effectively to research, to teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and to academic administration. Part of the role may involve the design and development of new undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.

A successful track record of research in experimental nuclear physics and a strong publication record are essential. The successful applicant will contribute to nuclear-physics research within the group and develop and lead new programmes of research. The successful applicant must be willing to travel and to work at international nuclear-physics laboratories where necessary.

The University of the West of Scotland is committed to supporting your personal development and providing an inclusive working environment. UWS has the Athena SWAN Bronze Award, is a Disability Confident employer, and welcomes applications from under-represented groups; assuch we particularly encourage applications supporting our diversity agenda.

Scotland has some stunning countryside and coastlines for outdoor and family life. We are close to Glasgow, Scotland's largest city, with its rich heritage andvibrant cultural life, and Glasgow International Airport is very close to the Paisley campus.

Five Postdoctoral Positions available at ITER

16 January 2018


The 2018 Principality of Monaco/ITER postdoctoral fellowships are now open for application.

In January 2008, a Partnership Agreement was signed between the ITER Organization and the Principality of Monaco to set up a Postdoctoral Fellowship program. Since then, five young scientists from the seven ITER Member countries or from the Principality of Monaco have been appointed every two years, and—over a period of two years—are trained in research areas related to the ITER Project. In January 2018, the Agreement was renewed for ten years, and a new recruitment campaign launched.

The principal motivation of the Research Fellowships is the development of excellence in research in fusion science and technology within the ITER framework. Brilliance and creativity, together with understanding of the relevance of the individual research interests to the ITER Project are a key requirement.

The Monaco/ITER Postdoctoral Fellowship Program allows young researchers to participate in one of the great scientific and technical challenges of the 21st century and to work closely with leading experts in fusion science and technology within a unique international framework. If you are interested in contributing to the development of fusion energy and would like to experience the ITER Project "up close," the Monaco/ITER Fellowships are a great opportunity.

Qualifications Your PhD was awarded after 1 January 2015 or you are about to obtain one.

You would like to carry out a research project and to participate in publications of high-quality journal articles in fusion science and technology.

Topics of postdoctoral fellowships Within the ITER Project research possibilities exist in many areas of fusion science and technology, including:

    Control Technology
    Plasma facing materials and components
    Burning plasma physics (confinement, stability, plasma-wall interactions, control, energetic particle physics)
    Heating and current drive physics and technology
    Fusion plasma diagnostics
    Superconducting magnet technology
    Electrical engineering
    Mechanical engineering/ structural analysis
    Remote handling technology
    Vacuum technology and plasma fuelling technology
    Tokamak Operations
    Tritium Breeding and tritium handling technology

Conditions for applicants

You are a national of one of ITER Members or of the Principality of Monaco
Your PhD was awarded after the 1 January 2015 or you will have received your PhD by the deadline for taking up an award.

Application Applicants are requested to apply through the ITER job site: http://www.iter.org/jobs

The e-Recruitment system will require you to:

Fill-in an online application file
Upload your Curriculum Vitae (including a selection of your most important publications and photocopies of your highest academic qualification)
Upload a letter of motivation -- limited to 2 pages

Important: Three letters of recommendation are also required. Please send those letters together with additional copies of your CV and motivation letter in one PDF file to HR-Recruitment@iter.org with a subject line: 2018 Monaco Fellowship application.
