PhD student in Applied Superconductivity
EPFL-SPC
The Superconductivity Group of the Swiss Plasma Center (SPC) is one of the leading European Laboratories for superconducting magnet development. We participate in the construction program of the ITER fusion reactor, the EUROfusion DEMO studies, as well as conductor R&D and other technology tasks in collaboration with CERN and Industry. Our lab is located in the premises of the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Villigen in northern Switzerland, near Zürich.

We are looking for a motivated PhD candidate with a solid background in physics, interested in the R&D program of high-field dipole magnets suitable for constructing superconducting test facilities and accelerator magnets. The magnets are based on an innovative type of two-stage cable made of high Jc, Nb3Sn strands. The challenging project has a potential to open a new avenue towards the next generation of the accelerator-type magnets.

The successful candidate will prepare a short section of the high Jc cable with the support of an industrial partner, and characterize it in the SPC laboratory. The focus of the work is on the design, construction and test of a small prototype coil, retaining basic characteristics of a high field dipole magnet. The student will present his/her work in international conferences and report the results and findings in scientific journals.

We require a University Degree (Master level) in either Physics or Engineering and good command of the English language. Experience in applied superconductivity or cryogenics is a valuable asset, though not a mandatory requirement.

PhD students are enrolled in the Physics Department of the School of Basic Sciences at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Salary and conditions of employment are according to the rules of EPFL for PhD students. The place of work is Villigen PSI.

PhD students and Post Docs for Superconductivity and Cryogenics research
University of Twente
The research group Energy, Materials and Systems of the faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Twente is looking for talented and ambitious
PhD students and Post-Doc researchers
to join us in research on superconductivity and cryogenics
The research of EMS is application oriented and focused on high-current superconductivity and cryogenics. A large part of the research is on sustainable energy, with the ambition of developing technologies, materials and systems that play a key role in our future energy chains. The application of superconductivity is for instance explored in wind turbines, material separation technology (in waste streams), and future cryomechatronics. Next to cooling superconducting magnets, cryogenics is relevant in life science, in food and medical applications and is also developed for low-vibration applications such as required in quantum technology and gravitational wave observatories.
EMS greatly benefits from its internationally recognized expertise and unique infrastructure and has an excellent track record in international projects on technologies that enable Big Science in organizations such as CERN, ESA and ITER.
We have positions open for new PhD students and Post-Doc researchers. If you hold an MSc in Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering or equivalent, and want to join us in one of these positions, please send us your motivation and CV. We look forward to receiving your application!

ReBCO Process Expert
High Temperature Superconductors (HiTS)
We are looking for material scientist that have deep knowledge of ReBCO wire manufacturing, utilizing PLD. Understanding of buffer layers.
Development of Superconducting Magnets for a Stellarator
Swiss Plasma Center, EPFL, Switzerland
The aim of the thesis is to develop a conceptual design of superconducting magnets for a future stellarator machine (a type of fusion reactor), which shall be built after the present state-of-the art machine Wendelstein 7-X. The concept based on low-temperature superconductors (Nb3Sn) as well as on high-temperature superconductors (REBCO tapes) will be investigated. The project is part of the EUROfusion research program. The non-planar shape of the coils makes the design challenging. Stellarators, together with tokamaks, have a potential to replace nuclear power plants as a safer and non-polluting source of electricity. The student will present his/her work in international conferences and report the results and findings in scientific journals.

We require a University Degree (Master level) in either Physics or Engineering and good command of the English language. Experience in applied superconductivity or cryogenics is a valuable asset, though not a mandatory requirement.

PhD students are enrolled in the Physics Department of the School of Basic Sciences at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The place of work is Villigen PSI, close to Zurich, Switzerland.
