The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) seeks to fill a research position with experience on theory/modeling on RF wave physics. This will include the development and application of state of the art theoretical and computational models in support of the PPPL RF heating program.
The successful candidate will be actively involved with the DOE’s RF SciDAC project, which requires an ability to work closely with other institutions on RF modeling development. Fluency in modern programming (FORTRAN, Python, etc.) and familiarity with UNIX operating systems is required. We are looking for a highly motivated scientist and team worker.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. in Plasma Physics, or closely related field, and a strong background in plasma modeling with numerical simulations. Experience in experimental physics and knowledge of tokamak or spherical torus operations is desired.
Princeton University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
