We are looking for an expert in high performance computing and the development of numerical algorithms.
Project summary: One of the main issues of research on magnetically controlled fusion is the understanding of mechanisms driving particle and energy losses in the edge of the plasma. It is now widely acknowledged that turbulent transport is responsible for most of these losses. In order to validate and constrain […]
We offer this position to applicants who are employed by a Consortium Member.
APPLAuSE is a doctoral program on plasma science and engineering, now on its second edition. It consists of a student-centered and highly modular program designed to enhance each student’s capabilities and maximize his/her potential.
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.
Plasmasurf is tailored for engineering and physics students aiming at complementing their education in Plasma Physics with the purpose of pursuing academic studies at the third cycle level (Ph.D). You should have fully completed a Bologna First Cycle and engaged in a 2nd cycle master, with a total of 200 ECTS already granted in your course.
The IPP Summer University covers the main aspects of plasma physics with emphasis on nuclear fusion. The lectures are designed for physics and engineering students who passed their bachelor courses or just started their PhD.
Crash course in Fusion Science and Technology organized by Dr. Rogers Jaspers, starting on April 15, 2014
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.
