There are currently several job opportunities at various institutions. Our members have asked to advertise jobs at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL), where there are several job openings ranging from post-doc to several scientist levels for experimental, computational as well as theoretical plasma physicists. At the same time Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is looking for a post-doc in experimental plasma physics using x-rays post-doc to work at WEST in France. There are also several other openings posted on the PPPL website.
Los Alamos National Laboratory’s mission is to solve national security challenges through scientific excellence. Science at Los Alamos, through 2030 and beyond, will underpin a safe, secure, and effective stockpile; protect against the nuclear threat; and provide solutions to strengthen energy security. A breadth of technical disciplines is pursued at Los Alamos, including physics, engineering, chemistry, biology, computer science, and mathematics. The hallmark of our work is multidisciplinary national security science linking theory, modeling, computation, experiment, and manufacturing, with significant depth in materials and “all-things nuclear.” The jobs are spread over multiple divisions:
