Research Associate in Experimental Plasma Turbulence – closing date 29 March 2019
With £4.3M of funding from EPSRC, the Universities of Oxford, Strathclyde, Warwick and York, in collaboration with Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, are embarking on a 5-year programme to understand the fundamentals of turbulence in tokamak plasmas.
The successful candidate will be employed by the University of York utilising beam emission spectroscopy to exploit the new capabilities of the recently upgraded MAST-U spherical tokamak, as well as JET. The postholder will be one of seven postdoctoral researchers collectively carrying out research combining theory, computation and experiment. The position is initially for a period of 2 years, with the possibility of an extension. The closing date for applications is 29 March 2019.
We will also be recruiting PhD students to start from October 2019.

We are committed to inclusivity and diversity, and encourage applications from a wide range of backgrounds. We will work with you to put in place additional support measures when required (e.g. for those with caring commitments).
