Job ID: 2018-9120 Type: Full-Time # of Openings: 1 Category: Research and Laboratory Princeton University
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory seeks to fill a post-doctoral Research Physicist position to work on fast ion transport physics on the KSTAR tokamak. The main focus is to contribute to the development, verification and validation of reduced fast ion transport models and to use the models in predictive time-dependent plasma simulations. The goal is to develop improved high performance plasma conditions in the superconducting KSTAR tokamak in Korea. The successful candidate will be based at the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab in NJ and will be expected to travel regularly to Korea to interact with the experiment and the KSTAR research team.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in plasma physics. Experience on tokamak physics is highly desirable. Preference will be given to candidates with previous experience in both experimental data analysis and use of numerical codes. The position will be based in Princeton, N.J., and the successful candidate will be expected to travel both domestically and internationally.
