Department: Center for Space Plasma & Aeronomic Research
Work type: postdoctoral student employee
Location: Huntsville, AL
Categories: Research - Other

Purpose of the Position:

CSPAR has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant III in computational plasma physics. A solid background in mathematics and computational science is required. Some familiarity with computational plasma physics, kinetic theory, and numerical algorithms is desirable.

The successful candidate will be supported by ongoing NSF and DOE EPSCoR projects and will assist in developing computational tools for simulations of low-temperature plasma and plasma-surface interactions. The researcher will join the team working on implementing hybrid methods coupling traditional computational tools with new techniques using Physics Informed Neural Networks for solving kinetic and fluid plasma transport problems.

Duties / Responsibilities
• Will assist in developing computational tools for simulations of low-temperature plasma and plasma-surface interactions.
• Will work on implementing hybrid methods coupling traditional computational tools with new techniques using Physics Informed Neural Networks for solving kinetic and fluid plasma transport problems.
• Assist in other research activities carried out by the PI and present results in meetings and in papers.

Minimum Requirements:

• Ph.D. in Mathematics or Computational Physics.
• 2.5 - 3 years of full-time verifiable work experience in low-temperature plasma and plasma-surface interactions.
• Experience in programming languages and computational tools for solving partial differential equations.

Desired Qualifications:

• Experience with Computational science, programming languages, and previous experience with GPU computing is preferred.
• Experience with Physics Informed Neural Networks is desired.
