Associate Research Physicist (MRI) Position at Princeton Plasma Lab, US

Department:  PPPL Plasma Science,  Category:  Research and Laboratory,  Full-Time.

Overview

The successful candidate will perform the experimental campaigns with both the liquid metal Magnetorotational Instability (MRI) experiment and the Hydrodynamic Turbulence Experiment (HTX) by continuously improving device and diagnostics capabilities to study physics of rotating fluids including: MRI; geophysical, solar, and astrophysical flows; and centrifuge applications.

The Princeton Department of Astrophysical Sciences and Plasma Physics Laboratory seek to fill an Associate Research Physicist position. Under supervision by senior personnel, the researcher will conduct campaigns with the liquid-metal MagnetoRotational Instability experiment to investigate: mechanisms for fast angular momentum transport; aspects of geophysical, solar, and astrophysical flows; and the use of the apparatus as a high-efficiency centrifuge.  Candidates must have an extensive background in experimental physics, preferably fluid dynamics, liquid-metal MHD, or plasma physics.

Responsibilities

Major responsibilities include: handling liquid gallium in the laboratory; designing and implementing diagnostics; performing experiments; analyzing data; and interpreting, presenting and publishing results jointly with other researchers. Coordination with other technical, engineering and administrative personnel will also be essential.

Qualifications

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.  Appointments will begin as soon as feasible.

Interested persons should submit a curriculum vita, bibliography, a statement of research interests, and provide contact information for three references.    For further inquiries, contact hji@pppl.gov or egilson@pppl.gov.

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.

  1. 11th PAMIR INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FUNDAMENTAL AND APPLIED MHD
    —————————–
    (from Anne-Lise Daltin, France)
    The next PAMIR conference will be organised by SIMaP (University of Grenoble) and LISM (University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne), Reims, France, from July 1st to July 5th, 2019.

    Message from The Chairmen

    We are pleased to welcome you to the 11th pamir conference in the city of Reims, an Art and History City with its UNESCO World Heritage sites.

    The topics of the Conference are the same of the past editions, but together with the usual topics there are someone that has been only recently introduced, such as the thermoacoustic effect, the born-again interest for the MHD power generation and the magnetoelectrochemistry. The introduction of new topics at each edition of this conference is the signal that MHD is still a child science and it needs to grow. Most part of processes, devices and applications that are presented in this conference are futuristic, but this is the nature of MagnetoHydroDynamics, which very often deals with unexplored territories of science and technology.

    It is aim of this edition of the pamir to maintain this tradition, and to favour new advances and transnational collaborations in this fascinating field of research.

    We are looking forward to meeting you in Reims during pamir 2019 and to sharing a most pleasant, interesting and fruitful conference.

    More detail about the both organisations of the conference and summer school could be found on the web site of the conference:

Job description

The Fluid and Complex Systems Research Centre, based at Coventry University is looking to recruit a Reader or a Professor to a new research leadership position. This leading Centre brings together over one hundred leading applied mathematicians, experimentalists, theoreticians, and specialists in scientific computing to tackle cutting edge challenges in fluid and complex systems.

The Centre currently consists of four research groups:

  • Fluid Dynamics
  • Advanced Computing
  • Statistical Physics
  • Flow Measurement and Smart Pipes

Our research benefits from an impressive and growing network of academic, commercial and government partnerships across the globe. We have a current portfolio of 35 active research projects, worth over GBP 11M ranging from prestigious research grants to industrial research contracts. Our unique combination of expertise and facilities allows us to work across multiple research topics industrial sectors to be one of the UK’s leading research centres in fluid mechanics.

We are looking for an experienced engineering fluid mechanics academic on the career pathway to a Professorship position, who will establish a fifth research group in the Centre to be focused on engineering applications of fluid mechanics. The new group will specialise in engineering problems with the unique advantage of the in-house support of world-leading experts in fundamental fluid mechanics, physics, computing and instrumentation from the existing groups.  You will have the passion to lead the development and delivery of a research area relevant to the Centre and capable of stepping into a strong leadership role.
