Fusion energy is one of very few long-term solutions for a sustainable base load electricity production with negligible environmental impact and minimal security and safety concern. We are now looking for new PhD students to join our research team to develop the understanding of fusion plasmas under reactor conditions - a critical part in the design and exploitation of the next step fusion experiments.

Major responsibilities

As a PhD student at the Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy research group, you will participate in the worldwide effort towards the realisation of fusion energy. You will contribute to the development of the validated modeling components needed for power plant design as well as the integration of these tool in state-of-the-art modeling suites, part of the research work is in direct collaboration with experiments. The focus is on integrated models for the whole plasma: from the hot core to the edge and the connection to material walls. In general, a combination of theory, numerical modeling and the application of machine learning for reduced physics and surrogate models are used. The research will be performed in an international environment connecting with the major fusion research experiments worldwide.

Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers' undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

Qualifications

  • A master's level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in physics (applied physics, engineering physics) or computational science or related fields.
  • Sound verbal and written communication skills in English.

Theoretical and/or practical experience of plasma physics, as well as programming skills are considered merits.

If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Contract terms

Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.
