Job Offer from April 24, 2020

Theoretical and computational research in plasma physics for astrophysics or fusion science

The International Research Collaboration Center (IRCC) of the National Institutes of Natural Sciences (NINS) in Japan seeks a postdoctoral or more senior researcher to conduct research in collaboration between NINS and the Max Planck Institutes for Plasma Physics, Astrophysics and Solar System Research.

The Max-Planck-Princeton Research Center for Plasma Physics (MPPC), established in 2012, is a framework for collaboration between the Max Planck Institutes for Plasma Physics, Astrophysics and Solar System Research, the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and Princeton University.

In 2019, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between MPPC and NINS. As a result, NINS established the International Research Collaboration Center (IRCC) to promote international collaborative research in plasma physics on topics of interest in astrophysics and fusion science.

Within this framework, IRCC now advertises the above-mentioned position. The candidate will be hired by NINS but will spend most of his/her time working at the German partner institutions on theoretical and/or computational research in plasma physics for astrophysics or fusion science. The applicant may select between projects within the various topics studied in MPPC, including turbulence, magnetic reconnection, magneto-rotational instability and dynamo action, astrophysical effects of cosmic rays, or stellarator optimization.

For more details and to apply, please follow the instructions given on the corresponding NINS webpage: International Research Collaboration Center
