Postdoctoral Research Associate in Edge Physics in Alternative Magnetic Geometries

The Swiss Plasma Center has an open position for a researcher at the postdoctoral level to work on the physics of the tokamak edge plasma in novel magnetic geometries, with the goal of obtaining a better understanding of the phenomena occurring in this region and to develop improved solutions for tokamaks.

Expert (m/f) in high performance computing and development of numerical algorithms

On behalf of the European Fusion Community the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) offers an opportunity to participate in a group for the high level support of European code developments for magnetic fusion related plasma physics and material modelling.

Physicist in the IRFM Modeling, Heating and Scenarios Group

The general scope of this position is to perform physics research on ITER-relevant topics via the preparation, realization and analysis by means of integrated modeling tools of selected experiments, focusing on heat and particle transport and their respective source mechanisms.

Development and exploitation of a fusion reactor system code

The candidate must have skills in physics, modelling and code development. A background in magnetic fusion and/or optimization algorithms is an advantage.

Various PhD positions at the Swiss Plasma Center (SPC / EPFL)

The CRPP is the Swiss national competence centre for plasma physics and fusion and, at the same time, it is an important part of a world-class academic institution, the EPFL, in which it is also geographically integrated. As a consequence, CRPP is in a privileged position to provide education and training over a large spectrum of plasma physics and fusion related subjects, using world-class research infrastructure and proficient supervision.

Summer schools in Europe

Many fusion laboratories in Europe as well as the ITER organization run summer schools on plasma physics and related topics. > list of summer schools
