The FIU Department of Physics invites applications for a Postdoctoral Associate position to support our diagnostic efforts in fast ion physics at the Mega Ampere Spherical Tokamak-Upgrade (MAST-U) located at the Culham Center for Fusion energy in the United Kingdom. We are developing a multi-channel charged fusion product diagnostic based on Silicon as well as Diamond surface barrier detectors with good (~ 1ms) time and energy resolution. The successful candidate is expected to regularly travel to MAST-U and serve as the liaison between FIU and MAST-U to support the installation and commissioning of the new instrument. The post-doctoral associate will be leading the data acquisition effort during MAST-U operation, play a leading role in carrying out our research program together with our local collaborators, supervise FIU students who are visiting MAST-U and have the opportunity to present new results in publications and conferences. The initial appointment will be for one year with an extension to two years, contingent on performance. Longer extensions will be contingent on both performance and the availability of funding.

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in experimental plasma or nuclear physics. A strong background in data analysis, programming (Python, Fortran, C++, etc. ) and Monte-Carlo simulation is required as well.

Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to Job Opening ID 529002 at facultycareers.fiu.edu and attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae and a brief statement of research interests as a single pdf file.
