In this role you would serve as a Software Engineer supporting research analysis of experimental systems data. This data is the result of the experimental operation of a flagship fusion device used to study the same phenomena that powers the sun and stars. This work provides a great opportunity to participate in the development of nuclear fusion as a future energy source to power the modern world.
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is a world-class fusion energy research laboratory managed by Princeton University for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. PPPL is dedicated to developing the scientific and technological knowledge base for fusion energy. The Laboratory advances the fields of fusion energy and plasma physics research to develop the scientific understanding and key innovations needed to realize fusion as an energy source for the world.
The technology used is heavily based on the Linux operating system and requires a deep understanding of the interaction between it and the hardware it is running on to elicit the required performance needed for our systems.
