Requisition Number: 
1400227

The National Spherical Torus Experiment-Upgrade (NSTX-U) - a magnetic confinement fusion research device located at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) - has an employment opportunity 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 improving understanding of the physics of the formation of the high-confinement region (H-mode pedestal) in the edge of the NSTX-U tokamak. In addition to the experimental characterization of the edge pedestal using a Thomson scattering system, numerical models are expected to be utilized and/or developed for advancing the understanding of the pedestal. Finally, development and implementation of the control of the pedestal will be performed using a range of control tools such as gas/mass injection and 3D magnetic fields.
