Stellenangebot vom 20.09.2022

The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics as an institute of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science (registered association) is the largest centre for fusion research in Europe with about 1100 employees in Garching near Munich and Greifswald. The scientists are investigating the physical principles for a fusion power plant which - like the sun - generates energy from the fusion of light atomic nuclei. The research is carried out in seven experimental and theoretical projects aimed at developing nuclear fusion into an inexhaustible and safe source of energy for the future.

The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Garching offers within the division ,Numerical Methods of Plasma Physics' (NMPP) a position for a postdoctoral physicist, mathematician or computer scientist (m/f/d).
The work will be performed within the EUROfusion-project E-TASC (Theory and Advanced Simulation Coordination).
