The Johns Hopkins University Plasma Spectroscopy/X-ray Imaging Group is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in the field of experimental High Energy Density Physics (HEDP). The work will focus mainly on research and development of X-ray phase-contrast or refraction-based imaging diagnostics and techniques. These techniques will enable to characterize macroscopic electron density gradients, and microscopic gradients through X-ray scatter, in HEDP experiments. The development and testing of the refraction-based imaging diagnostics will take place at Johns Hopkins University. The diagnostics will be tested in ICF-relevant experiments at University of Rochester - Laboratory for Laser Energetics, and in Warm Dense Matter and shock physics experiments at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
A PhD in Plasma Physics or a closely related field is required. We welcome applications from candidates with experience in both experimental and computational plasma physics. Candidates with experience in X-ray diagnostics, instrumentation, and optics are preferred.
The appointment is for one year with potential renewal for another two years. All qualified applicants must submit a Curriculum Vitae including a list of relevant publications to Dr Dan Stutman email@example.com and Dr Kevin Tritz firstname.lastname@example.org.

About The Johns Hopkins University Department of Physics & Astronomy
The Henry A. Rowland Department of Physics and Astronomy combines a strong research program, world-renowned faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities. The instruction and research programs within the department reflect two features which have a long tradition at Johns Hopkins: an emphasis on graduate study and research, supplemented with a strong undergraduate program; and a flexibility that is pos...sible only in a department of our size. Research in the Department of Physics and Astronomy primarily centers on three areas: astrophysics, condensed matter physics, and particle or high energy physics.The Johns Hopkins University, located in Baltimore, MD, was founded in 1876 as the first research university in the United States. With its nine academic divisions, enrolling over 21,000 full-time and part-time students, it is the leading U.S. academic institution in total research and the largest private employer in Maryland.
