Project Leader, Linear Collider R&D Program at Fermilab

Fermilab seeks an experienced scientist to lead the linear collider R&D program at Fermilab. This expanding program is currently pursuing R&D on room-temperature structures for a second generation electron-positron linear collider. Responsibilities will include providing management and technical direction for a program aimed at developing cost effective approaches to an electron-positron linear collider over the next several years, and for coordinating the Fermilab effort both within the U.S. NLC Collaboration and within the larger world effort. The project leader will report to the Associate Director for Accelerators. This position requires previous experience with linear accelerators or high power RF systems, and demonstrated leadership abilities.

Interested parties requiring more information, or applicants for this position, should contact:

Steve Holmes, Associate Director for Accelerators Fermilab,
MS105 P.O. Box 500
Batavia, IL 60510, USA
holmes@fnal.gov 630-840-3211

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, and the names of three references.

Associate Scientist, Superconducting Magnet Development at Fermilab

Fermilab's Technical Division has an excellent research position for an Associate Scientist in superconducting magnet development. Fermilab's world-class magnet R&D program is a leader in developing magnet technology for upgrading the Tevatron; for CERN's Large Hadron Collider; and for the particle accelerators of the future.

The successful applicant will play a leading role in magnet design, fabrication and testing as part of an experienced team of physicists, engineers and technicians.

The Associate Scientist position has an initial term of three years with the possibility of growth into a regular research appointment on the Fermilab scientific staff. A Ph.D. or equivalent in physics or engineering is required, and at least two years of experience in experimental high-energy physics, accelerator science or superconducting-magnet or materials technology. The successful applicant must demonstrate a record of accomplishment as evidenced by publications, reports and presentations; and have leadership potential and good English communication skills.

Please forward a CV and three letters of recommendation to

Dr. Peter Limon,
Fermilab P.O. Box 500,

TESLA Colloquium at DESY

TESLA Colloquium A Colloquium on the Scientific Perspectives and Realization of TESLA, the 500-800 GeV Electron-Positron Linear Collider with an X-Ray Free Electron Laser Laboratory will be held March 23-24, 2001 at DESY in Hamburg, Germany. The institutes which have contributed in an international effort to the Technical Design Report will present the prospects of TESLA for particle physics and science with X-Ray Free Electron Lasers as well as its technical realization. On Friday 23 March the program will start with plenary talks on the status and perspectives of particle physics and of research with photons, followed by presentations of the technical aspects of TESLA. On Saturday morning, the multiple aspects of the X-Ray FEL and TESLA's potential for particle physics will be presented. Further information is available at http://www.desy.de/tesla_colloquium
