Salary £47,910 – £53,400 p.a.
The Department of Physics, wishes to appoint a Lecturer in the Plasma Physics Group, in the area of theoretical plasma physics. The appointee will be part of the Plasma Physics Group. The Group comprises 10 academic staff with expertise in the following areas: high energy density plasmas; inertial confinement fusion; MHD plasma modelling; fundamental plasma processes such as reconnection, turbulence and shocks; laser-plasma interactions including particle acceleration; experimental laboratory astrophysics, and magnetic confinement fusion. Some significant activities within the group include: the MAGPIE Z-pinch experiment; the Centre for Inertial Fusion Studies; the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science; major collaborations with RAL, AWE, DSTL, Sandia and LLNL. The successful applicant will enhance these research interests. The successful candidate will hold a good undergraduate degree and a PhD (or equivalent) in a relevant subject in addition to an excellent record of research in theoretical plasma physics, evidenced by a portfolio of research publications commensurate with career stage. It is essential that you are able to establish and lead a coherent research programme of your own and also demonstrate the potential to collaborate with other experimental or theoretical groups and programmes in the Department and/or College. You will have experience of presenting at national and/or international scientific conferences and demonstrate the ability to teach effectively at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
