Positions Obtainable at Normal Atomics in San Diego, CA, through Oak Ridge Related Universities.
Postdoctoral Scientist, Plasma Principle and Computation
Plasma Physics: Principle and Computation
The Principle and Computational Science division at Normal Atomics (https://fusion.gat.com/global/theory/home ) conducts elementary analysis within the idea of fusion plasmas, and facilitates scientific discovery by superior computing. Situated on the website of the DIII-D Nationwide Fusion Facility, the group gives theoretical help to DIII-D, in addition to to ITER and different fusion experiments worldwide. We have now an thrilling alternative for a postdoctoral scientist with experience in idea and simulation of fusion plasmas.
We invite purposes for postdoctoral students in magnetic confinement plasma physics with deal with one in every of extra of the next areas:
(a) plasma materials interplay in MFE units, together with growth and validation of theoretical and numerical fashions of gasoline recycling and impurity era from divertor plasma-facing elements
(b) Analysis in MHD and kinetic idea, built-in modeling and diminished mannequin growth, in addition to HPC code growth.
(c) fluid and kinetic descriptions of plasma edge physics,
(d) tokamak built-in and predictive modeling.
The candidate ought to show basic theoretical competence with plasma equilibrium, stability and kinetic idea. Expertise with HPC APIs together with MPI, OpenMP and OpenACC is a plus.
The candidate must be self-motivated and artistic, but additionally in a position to perform successfully in a crew setting.
Expertise with Unix/Linux, Python and Fortran can be advantageous.
