Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics
STUDENT JOB PROGRAM
Summer 2018 job posting
Job number TR18-2-19
Position Title:Cryomodule Engineering Student
Name of Project:Cryomodule Development
Overview:TRIUMF is designing and fabricating a Heavy Ion Superconducting radio-frequency accelerating module. The module is based on an existing design but will include new features that have to be carefully modeled and designed.
Duties:The Student will be involved in the design of a Superconducting RF cryomodule designed for a heavy ion linear accelerator. Based on the existing experience of ISAC-II cryomodule, the work will develop new mechanisms for separated vacuum (RF/isolation) module. The work will involve solid works design, Finite element analysis for thermal or mechanical characteristics.
Skills learned during this work experience:The Student will gain knowledge on RF, superconductivity, and cryogenics, master CAD and FEA tools to conduct mechanical and thermal simulations, and gain hands-on experience on mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, and vacuum technology. The completed mechanical design can be published in an international conference such as SRF conference. The training would strengthen studentís capability for his/her future career in mechanical engineering.
Qualifications:3-4 year Mechanical engineer or Engineering Physics student
Period of work:May - Aug 2018 with possible 4-month extension
Jobs are open to all qualified undergraduate students. |
Due to the volume of applications we receive, the TRIUMF Job Number must be clearly indicated on the application.
Applications must include:
