Country to Study in: Denmark
Denmark Technical University (DTU) announces a PhD Position in the field of plasma Physics and Technology at Denmark Technical University, Denmark.
The plasma edge is the most important field of research towards a working fusion power plant. Characterizing the transport of heat, particles and momentum from the plasma towards the plasma facing material surfaces is important as the large energy fluxes pose extreme challenges to the materials used. Moreover the most important operational regime for a fusion power plant, the so-called H-mode, is based on a transport barrier established in the plasma edge, the understanding of which is still in its infancy.
The successful applicant is expected to spend significant time at the super conducting fusion experiment EAST and to actively participate in the experimental campaigns.
Candidates should have a master’s degree in engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master’s degree.
Experience with wind energy or aerodynamics, as well as good communication skills are considered advantageous for obtaining the position.
Citizens of ANY country may apply
