The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) seeks to fill an engineering-scientist staff position to be responsible for the NSTX-U Multi-Pulse Thomson Scattering (MPTS) diagnostic and its utilization in the NSTX-U research program. The MPTS diagnostic measures the radial profiles and time evolution of the plasma electron temperature and electron density. The data are utilized in post-shot physics analysis and will be used during the shot for real-time plasma control in the future. A likely future upgrade will be to complete implementation of the pulse-burst-laser capability. The MPTS measurements are integral to the NSTX-U research program and play an important role in all experiments. MPTS data are particularly important for studies of thermal and particle transport, understanding plasma equilibria, and for development of high-performance plasma scenario studies. The successful candidate will work with a laser-optical engineer to maintain, calibrate, and operate the MPTS diagnostic hardware and analysis software, and to perform upgrades of the system. (S)he will have the ability and willingness to work with a large team of technical individuals, including researchers, engineers, and technicians. The successful candidate may also collaborate on the development and utilization of Thomson Scattering diagnostics at fusion experiments at collaborating institutions, e.g., the ST-40 tokamak located in the UK and/or the WEST tokamak in France. Occasional travel may be needed to support these collaborations. Are you interested in joining the world’s brightest talent in solving some of the world’s grandest scientific challenges of the 21st century?

Dr. Robert A. Ellis, Jr. was born in 1927. He received his bachelor's degree in 1948 from Fisk University - a highly ranked historically black university, and received his master's degree in physics from Yale University in 1949. After receiving his master's degree, Dr. Ellis taught at Tennessee Agricultural and Industrial (A&I), later known as Tennessee State University - a historically black land-grant public university. He then went to earn his doctorate at the University of Iowa. In 1956, Dr. Ellis joined Project Matterhorn - a small group headed by Lyman Spitzer Jr. at Princeton University working on controlled fusion. Project Matterhorn would later become the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). Dr. Ellis became a key member of the team studying the magnetic confinement and heating of plasma in stellarators and in 1988 he was appointed head of experimental projects at PPPL. During his later years, he devoted much of his time to furthering international collaboration in science. He served as foreign secretary of the Advisory Committee on the USSR and Eastern Europe of the National Academy of Science, a member of the Science Advisory Committee for the NASA Research Laboratories, and head of the physics section of the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. In 1984, he became the U.S. representative to the Commission on Plasma Physics of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics. Dr. Ellis was a pioneer in modern experimental plasma physics until his death on December 15, 1989. To his colleagues he is best known for his ability to come up with relevant information on almost any topic, and above all, his flashing wit. He also had a deep and gentle understanding of people-their hopes and ambitions, their motivations and frustrations.From NSBP honors (February 2020) and Physics Today (March 1991). Are you interested in joining the world’s brightest talent in solving some of the world’s grandest scientific challenges of the 21st century?
