    Qualifications

    The successful candidate will have obtained excellent grades in his/her Bachelor and Masters degrees. He/she should also be well-motivated, hardworking and willing and able to work as part of a team. Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) in Physics or Mathematics or have similar qualifications by the time they commence the project

    Preference

    Knowledge in plasma physics, tomography or inverse problems is advantageous

    Responsibilities

    The subject of the PhD project is integrated data analysis of the available fast-ion diagnostics at the stellarator Wendelstein 7-X. The integrated data analysis will be done using novel tomographic inversion techniques to measure the full phase-space distribution function comprised of position space and velocity space. The PhD student will work on theoretical aspects of the methods, their implementation, and use the methods to analyze experimental data. A major part of the project will be to prepare, participate in and analyze measurements at Wendelstein 7-X. The successful candidate will therefore be expected to travel to Wendelstein 7-X for several months. If beneficial, we will also apply the developed methods to tokamaks.
