Associate Research Physicist - Theory and Simulation of Energetic Particles in Tokamaks
Requisition # 2017-7080 Department PPPL Theory Category Research and Laboratory Date Posted 1/9/2017 Full-Time / Part-Time Full-Time Application Deadline ..
The PPPL Theory Department invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the theory and simulation of runaway electrons in tokamaks. The successful candidate will perform theoretical analyses and simulation studies of runaway electrons and their interaction with MHD instabilities observed in worldwide tokamak experiments, with applications to ITER. Physics understanding obtained from these studies will be shared with the experimental teams for the design and interpretation of the experiments, and disruption mitigation strategies. Candidates with a broad knowledge of plasma physics and ability to use state-of-the-art computational tools are encouraged to apply. Appointments are for one year, renewable annually based on satisfactory performance and subject to funding, for a total of up to two years.
