As part of a recently awarded Department of Energy (DOE) Plasma Science Facilities grant – the Magnetized Plasma Research Laboratory at Auburn University has a post-doctoral research fellow position available. This position will involve the design, operation, and diagnosis of low temperature plasma experiments that focus on the transport and stability of plasmas containing nanoparticles and microparticles (i.e., dusty plasmas). Experiments will be performed using tabletop devices and in the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment – a high magnetic field, multi-user research facility at Auburn University (http://aub.ie/mprl). The development of optical diagnostic tools (e.g., laser induced fluorescence, spectroscopy, high speed imaging, particle image velocimetry, etc.) for these experiments will be a central component of this work. The contact person for this activity is Prof. Edward Thomas, Jr. (email@example.com).
Applications are to be submitted to the College of Sciences and Mathematics Postdoc Pool 2018/2019.
The College of Sciences and Mathematics at Auburn University located in Auburn AL (http://www.auburn.edu/cosam) is seeking candidates for the position of postdoctoral fellow in the sciences and mathematics. From time-to-time, postdoctoral positions become available under a variety of research grants and projects in the college. We are seeking applications from individuals with a Ph.D. in any one area such as: biology, chemistry, geosciences, mathematics, statistics, physics or related fields. The candidates selected for these positions must be able to meet eligibility requirements to work in the United States at the time appointment is scheduled to begin and continue working legally for the proposed term of employment; and must possess excellent written and interpersonal communication skills. The positions are available for a minimum of one year as full-time 12 month appointments, with renewal possible based on performance, need, and/or funding for a maximum of four years. These are non-tenure track positions. Salary will be commensurate with education and experience. Review of applications will begin after July 1, 2018 and continue throughout the year as positions become available.

About Auburn University
Auburn University is a PhD granting, land-, sea-, and space-grant institution in east central Alabama. The main campus has an enrollment of approximately 29,000 students. Auburn University offers degrees in 13 schools and colleges at the undergraduate, graduate and professional levels. Auburn is located approximately 50 miles northeast of Montgomery, AL and 100 miles southwest of Atlanta, GA.The Auburn Physics Department has more than 20 full-time faculty, approximately 50 graduate students, and approximately 60 undergraduate physics majors. It is housed in two buildings, Allison Lab and Leach Science Center. The plasma physics group is the largest research group in the Physics Department with a total of 11 faculty who pursue research in fusion (experiment, theory/computational), space plasma (theory/computational), low temperature / dusty plasmas (experiment), and atomic processes in plasmas (experiment, theory/computational). The plasma group has two large facilities: the Compact Toroidal Hybrid (CTH) stellarator and the Magnetized Dusty Plasma Experiment (MDPX) along with numerous tabletop experiments and supporting experimental and computational resources.
