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