The Theory Department at the Princeton University Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is seeking a full time computational scientist to be involved in developing the M3D-C1 code and applying it to a number of applications. This is an entry-level position at rank of Associate Research Physicist.
The successful applicant will initially work closely with a more senior member of the Research Staff in carrying out a program of computational and theoretical research associated with the cause and effect of disruptions in tokamaks. Initial emphasis will be in achieving the milestones delineated in contracts with the European F4E program and for the CTTS SciDAC.
Applicant should have a Ph.D. in plasma physics or a closely related discipline. Knowledge of the properties of and techniques for solving the 3D magnetohydrodynamic equations describing global stability properties of tokamak plasmas is highly desirable. English communication and writing skills are required and so is being able to work as a team.
Qualified applicants should apply and send a curriculum vitae and bibliography, and arrange to have two letters of recommendation sent as soon as possible for full consideration.
Recommendation letters can be mailed to S. C. Jardin, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, James Forrestal Campus, P.O. Box 451, Princeton, NJ 08543 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
