  • Overview

    The Princeton Department of Astrophysical Sciences and Plasma Physics Laboratory seek to fill an Associate Research Physicist position. Under supervision by senior personnel, the researcher will conduct campaigns with the liquid-metal MagnetoRotational Instability experiment to investigate: mechanisms for fast angular momentum transport; aspects of geophysical, solar, and astrophysical flows; and the use of the apparatus as a high-efficiency centrifuge.  Candidates must have an extensive background in experimental physics, preferably fluid dynamics, liquid-metal MHD, or plasma physics. 

     

    The successful candidate will perform the experimental campaigns with both the liquid metal Magnetorotational Instability (MRI) experiment and the Hydrodynamic Turbulence Experiment (HTX) by continuously improving device and diagnostics capabilities to study physics of rotating fluids including: MRI; geophysical, solar, and astrophysical flows; and centrifuge applications.

     

     

    Responsibilities

    Major responsibilities include: handling liquid gallium in the laboratory; designing and implementing diagnostics; performing experiments; analyzing data; and interpreting, presenting and publishing results jointly with other researchers. Coordination with other technical, engineering and administrative personnel will also be essential.  

    Qualifications

    Applicant should have a Ph.D. in plasma physics or related physics, with preference given to applicants with experience in fluid dynamics, liquid metal MHD and its diagnostics, data acquisition, data processing, and applications to astrophysics and geophysics.  Appointments will begin as soon as feasible.

     

    Interested persons should submit a curriculum vita, bibliography, a statement of research interests, and provide contact information for three references.    For further inquiries, contact hji@pppl.gov or egilson@pppl.gov
