We are currently looking for an exceptional Experimental Physicist with theoretical knowledge in high energy density related physics. You will design, build, carry out and analyse experiments towards the goal of inertial fusion power production. This will focus on the development of temporally and spatially resolved temperature and density diagnostics. 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 our extensive instrumentation based around very high-speed photography, x-ray imaging, neutron detection and spectroscopy. This work is continually evolving with the purchase and custom design of new equipment and diagnostics.
