Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics
Summer 2018 job posting
Job number TR18-2-27

Position Title:

Web Developer 

Name of Project:

Beamline Layout Web App 


As a part of the ARIEL project, hundreds of meters of beamlines are curently being designed, build, and commissioned. Once completed, the whole accelerator complexe will look like an amazing network of beamlines, offering a large number of beam path combinations, with the possibility to deliver simultaneously 3 rare isotope beams.
The large number of possible beam paths, and the simultaneous delivery of 3 beams will increase greatly the complexity of tuning and operations.
To assist operators, we propose to build 2D and 3D interactive visuals of all the TRIUMF beamlines.


The student will be tasked with building a web app to produce layout plots (2D abd 3D) of all the TRIUMF beamlines. These plots are to be automatically created from our existing XML database of beamlines. These plots are to be interactive: they should allow actions like selecting a beampath, getting information/status of a given component, etc.

Skills learned during this work experience:

- Web development.
- UI design: produce a simple interface to display complex 3D path.


Computer Science or computer Eng. student, 2nd year at least.
