Open Position at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory seeks to fill an associate research physicist position at Laboratory Astrophysics Division in Plasma Science & Technology Department. Under supervisions by senior personnel, the researcher will perform campaigns in liquid metal Magnetorotational Instability experiment to investigate mechanisms for fast angular momentum transport, and also the nonlinear physics of Rossby waves and zonal flow system. Candidates must have an extensive background in experimental physics, preferably fluid dynamics, liquid metal MHD and plasma physics. The major responsibilities include handling liquid gallium in laboratory, designing and implementing diagnostics, performing experiments, analyzing data, interpreting, presenting and publishing results jointly with other researchers. Coordinating activity with other technical, engineering and administrative personnel is also essential. Development of new ideas should help grow the area of laboratory plasma astrophysics at PPPL in the long term. Applicant should have a Ph.D. in plasma physics or related physics, with preference given to applicants with experience in fluid dynamics, liquid metal MHD and its diagnostics, data acquisition, data processing, and applications to astrophysics and geophysics.
