The group’s research program is primarily at William & Mary, but is strongly interlinked with national and international fusion experiments. The post-doctoral researcher will conduct research in plasma physics with a focus on modeling of experimental plasma-edge dynamics. The modeling will consist of running and developing the SOLPS-ITER and/or BOUT++ with a focus on validation for integrated modeling purposes. The position will be based at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, but will require travel to national and international facilities. Depending on the background, experimental analysis and conducting experiments could be part of the research.
