The Princeton University Plasma Physics Laboratory, a world-leading fusion energy research center under contract with the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE), is seeking applications for a full time fusion plasma physicist at a post-doctoral level to work in the area of energetic particles and MHD. The position will be funded for two years, with renewal for the second year based upon the availability of resources and performance.
The successful candidate will participate in the development, verification and validation of reduced models for energetic ions. The candidate will develop a code which will be applied to experiments on NSTX-U and other tokamaks with neutral beam injection. It is preferred that the candidate has fundamental knowledge on fusion plasma physics and has experience in code development.
Qualified applicants will need to submit a curriculum vitae and bibliography, and arrange to have two letters of recommendation sent as soon as possible for full consideration at careers.princeton.edu. The recommendation letters can be mailed to Nikolai Gorelenkov, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, James Forrestal Campus, P.O. Box 451, Princeton, NJ 08543 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org..
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is a collaborative national center for fusion energy research. The Laboratory advances the coupled fields of fusion energy and plasma physics research, and, with collaborators, is developing the scientific understanding and key innovations needed to realize fusion as an energy source for the world. An associated mission is ...providing the highest quality of scientific education.The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is a world-class fusion energy research laboratory dedicated to developing the scientific and technological knowledge base for fusion energy as a safe, economical and environmentally attractive energy source for the world’s long-term energy requirements.PPPL, on Princeton University's Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro, N.J., is devoted to creating new knowledge about the physics of plasmas — ultra-hot, charged gases — and to developing practical solutions for the creation of fusion energy. The Laboratory is managed by the University for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science, which is the largest single supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
