The application should be sent through a member of the General Assembly by March 31st to the chair of the General Assembly Sibylle Günter (IPP).
The goal of this PhD project is to develop new, and utilise existing, diagnostics at the TCV tokamak in Lausanne, Switzerland to a) understand the transport across the magnetic field in the region of the field null or x-point (use turbulence imaging) to test predictions of additional cross-field transport there, and b) bring new diagnostics to bear on the characteristics of the thermal condensation instability that occurs called ‘detachment’ (occurs in solar prominences as well) which, while strongly dissipating the high power fluxes flowing along the field, is difficult to control and can lead to impurities in, and cooling of, the hot core plasma.
PhD position open at Aix-Marseille University (PIIM laboratory, France) The project deals with the fundamentals of plasma-wall interactions for fusion devices with an original experimental approach.
post-doctoral position: Hydrogen plasma in interaction with diamond materials: erosion and negative-ion surface production
The PIIM laboratory (Aix-Marseille University, France) is proposing a two-year post doc position dealing with plasma-surface interactions for fusion applications. The project is conducted within the framework of a collaborative project between PIIM laboratory, LSPM laboratory (Paris Nord University, France), IRFM laboratory (CEA Cadarache, France) and DIFFER institute (The Netherlands). The post doc will mostly work at PIIM laboratory with possible experimental campaigns at LSPM, CEA and at DIFFER on Magnum PSI device.
PhD positions for 2014 at IRFM
In order to reach the ignition in magnetic fusion plasmas, it is necessary to increase their temperature by means of auxiliary heating systems. Neutral Beam Injection (NBI) and the injection of waves in the Ion Cyclotron Range of Frequencies (ICRF) serve this purpose. The neutrals from the NBI are ionized […]
The Kudowa Summer School “Towards Fusion Energy” takes place annually in Kudowa Zdrój, Poland. The school aims at young scientists (PhD and Master students) from different countries, and provides courses on various aspects of fusion energy, plasma experiments and technology.
This school is the 51st in the series organized at Culham Science Centre, near Oxford. No preceding knowledge of plasma physics is assumed. Previous schools have attracted students from more than 50 different countries.
