The successful candidate will conduct research in the area of plasma boundary physics, primarily focused either on experiments or modeling, and aimed at supporting power exhaust and plasma-facing component (PFC) design for fusion devices, using liquid metal PFCs. The candidate will lead experiments to validate techniques for the delivery of lithium vapor to fusion-relevant plasmas or will perform numerical modeling of lithium vapor box divertors for fusion devices. The candidate will be based onsite in Princeton NJ; occasional travel to support collaborative research on offsite facilities may be required.
The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting research and disseminating results in the form of talks, posters, and refereed journal articles, principally related to boundary physics and liquid metal PFCs. The candidate will participate in the liquid metal plasma-facing component program at PPPL, including designs for future deployments of liquid metal systems on a range of devices.
