1 The Cockcroft Institute An International Centre for Research in Accelerator Science and Technology http;//www.lancs.ac.uk/cockcroft-institute/ The Cockcroft Institute for Accelerator Science and Technology is a joint venture of Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester Universities, the Daresbury and Rutherford Appleton Laboratories (CCLRC), PPARC, and the North West Development Agency (NWDA). It is situated in a purpose-built building on the Daresbury Laboratory campus. The Institute aims to provide the intellectual focus, the educational infrastructure, and the essential scientific and technological facilities, for scientists and engineers to take a leading role in global projects concerned with accelerator design, construction and operation for the foreseeable future. The Institute is named after the Nobel prizewinner Sir John Cockcroft FRS. Born in Todmorden in north west England, and educated in part in Manchester, he is regarded as the pioneer of modern accelerator research. Leading Scientists Leading Engineers The Board and Management of the Cockcroft Institute intend to make five new appointments to positions as Leading Engineers and Scientists (theoretical and experimental) in the Institute. These positions are designed to attract outstanding scientists and engineers to the Institute to initiate new aspects of its R&D programme in Accelerator Science and Engineering. Successful applicants will be be appointed to academic career positions (Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader or Professor) on the Faculty of one of the three founding universities, Lancaster, Liverpool or Manchester, to be decided at the time of appointment. Undergraduate (BSc, MPhys, MEng) teaching duties will be in one of the Departments of Physics at Lancaster and Liverpool Universities, the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Manchester University, and the Department of Engineering at Lancaster University. Postgraduate education is organised centrally in the Institute. The successful applicants will join 6 new Faculty staff already in post in these Departments who work in the Institute. Present R&D includes work on accelerator science for the LHC, ILC, CLIC, and neutrino beams, with in-house work on the Energy Recovery Linac Prototype (presently nearing completion), generic aspects of RF cavity performance and scRF (with J-Lab), and in the Theory Group. Details are on the website All of the work involves international collaboration, and thus willingness to work for periods at overseas laboratories is a pre-requisite. A seamless working relationship exists in the Institute building between staff employed in the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre ASTeC (CCLRC) and in the universities.http://www.lancs.ac.uk/cockcroft-institute Interested candidates should contact as soon as possible the Director, Prof. John Dainton, preferably with their CV and the names of three referees, at the Cockcroft Institute of Accelerator Science and Technology, Daresbury Science and Innovation Centre, Daresbury Laboratory, Warrington WA4 4AD, GB, phone: +44 (0) (PA), mobile (handy): +44 (0) , After mutual consideration,each application will be taken forward by one of the Institute
