Overview

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 Associate Research Physicist (at post-doctoral level) in the area of fusion plasma computation and theory. The applicant will participate in research efforts sponsored by the SciDAC Center of Tokamak Disruption Simulation which aims to provide physics insights into tokamak disruption and its mitigation - a top research priority for magnetic fusion. 

Responsibilities

The successful candidate will be involved in developing state of the art integrated kinetic model and simulation capabilities for thermal quench dynamics and associated physics studies, and is expected to work on code development, verification and validation. 

Qualifications

The applicant should have a completed Ph.D in the area of plasma physics or a related field. It is preferred that the candidate has fundamental knowledge on fusion plasma physics and has substantial experience in code development and kinetic or fluid simulations. The initial appointment will be for two years (pending final budget approval), with renewal for the second year based on availability of resources and performance.

 

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.  The recommendation letters can be mailed to Weixing Wang, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, James Forrestal Campus, P.O. Box 451, Princeton, NJ 08543 or email them to wwang@pppl.gov.
