The Johns Hopkins University Plasma Group is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in the field of High Energy Density Physics (HEDP). The work will focus mainly on research and development of X-ray refraction-based imaging diagnostics and techniques. These techniques will characterize macroscopic electron density gradients, and through X-ray scatter microscopic gradients, in HEDP experiments. The development and testing of the refraction-based imaging diagnostics will take place at Johns Hopkins University. The diagnostics will be deployed and tested off-site: ICF-relevant experiments will be performed at University of Rochester – Laboratory for Laser Energetics, while Warm Dense Matter experiments will be performed at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
A PhD in Plasma Physics or a closely related field is required. We welcome applications from candidates with experience in both experimental and computational plasma physics as well as candidates with experience in X-ray diagnostics, instrumentation, and optics.
The postdoctoral researcher position is a one year position, which can be extended for up to three years provided funding is available. All qualified applicants must submit a Curriculum Vitae including a list of relevant publications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
