Requisition Number: 
1400387

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has employment opportunities for a post-doctoral research position in experimental plasma physics. PPPL is a national laboratory operated for the United States Department of Energy (DoE) by Princeton University under Contract No. DE-AC02-09CH11466.

The duties associated with this position involve the development and application of laser diagnostics, including Laser Induced Fluorescence and Thomson scattering, for diagnosing weakly ionized plasmas with nanoparticles in a broad range of bulk gas pressures, including atmospheric pressure. Following the diagnostic development, the candidate will conduct a comprehensive experimental characterization of the plasmas with nanoparticles, using the developed laser diagnostic and passive optical emission spectroscopy.

Successful candidates must have a Ph.D in Physics or equivalent within the last five years with strong experimental physics skills and hands-on optics, spectroscopy and laser experience. Experience in both basic plasma physics and numerical methods are desirable. In addition, successful candidates should have the ability to work within a group/team environment while also being able to work independently, and have strong communication skills.
