Experimental Physicist – Salary: £Excellent – Oxford

Permanent

Experimental Physicist required to design, build, carry out and analyse experiments towards the goal of inertial fusion power production. As part of the experimental team, you will also work closely with the numerical physics and pulsed power teams, and with collaborators in academia. You will perform hypervelocity impact studies using extensive instrumentation based around very high-speed photography, x-ray imaging, neutron detection and spectroscopy.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Consistently improving the capability and quality of our experimental diagnostics
  • Comparing experimental results to simulations you have run using our in-house codes which you will be trained on
  • Applying a theoretical understanding of shock hydrodynamics and plasma physics to interpret data.
  • Working as a subject expert within the experimental team

Experience required.

  • A PhD in physics or a related subject, or an equivalent industrial experience
  • Experience working in an experimental research team.
  • Knowledge of plasma related diagnostics such as optical or particle probing
  • Experience with shock physics, warm dense matter, or inertial fusion research
  • Computational simulation skills
  • Experience with plasma spectroscopy or fusion physics
  • Experience with gas guns, lasers, or pulsed power devices


This is a fantastic opportunity to join an agile research company, changing the way the way we can produce sustainable energy.
