Positions Available

The MAX-PLANCK-INSTITUT FÜR PLASMAPHYSIK (MPP), one of the leading centres for fusion research, is seeking a research scientist.

Tasks / Duties:

This postdoc position in fundamental plasma physics will be in the EPOS ("Electrons and Postirons in an Optimized Stellarator") Group, a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group that is the newest branch of the APEX Collaboration, based in the Stellarator Edge and Divertor Physics Division. Research topics will focus on the design of a tabletop-sized stellarator that is optimized for the long confinement of low-temperature, ultra-low-density plasmas comprising positrons and electrons (i.e., matter-antimatter "pair" plasmas), followed by the construction of that device and the generation and study of plasmas in it. As this is a six-year project that has just begun, the successful applicant will have significant opportunity to influence this state-of-the-art experiment and their role within it.
