Engineering and Technology: Aerospace and Aeronautical, Physics: Applied, Physics: Plasma
Helion Energy is hiring scientists to join our experimental fusion operations team to operate, maintain, and expand a suite of optical diagnostics for the world’s most energetic FRC device. These optical tools will be integrated with other multi-keV temperature plasma diagnostics to measure device performance.
Required Qualifications: Pulsed or high-speed optical plasma diagnostics experience is paramount. Demonstrated experience with at least one of the following: Thomson scattering, neutral beam spectroscopy, x-ray detection/spectroscopy, multi-color interferometry or polarimetry. Familiarity with other diagnostic tools and research in pulsed, high temperature plasmas, ideally with multi-keV ion temperatures and greater than 1022 m-3 density. The theoretical, optical, and electromechanical design and implementation of new systems is also desired.
Education and Experience: The successful candidate must have a M.S. or greater in Experimental Plasma Physics or in a closely related discipline. Five or more years of experience or an equivalent combination of education and experience are desirable.
