Postdoctoral Positions

CTRFL is currently recruiting a Postdoctoral Research Associate for a project about computational modeling of high-temperature plasmas relevant to magnetically-confined fusion. Relevant expertise of interest includes quadrature-based moment methods, Large Eddy Simulation of multi-physics turbulent flows, and/or computational plasma physics. The appointment will be for one year with renewal for a second with a start date on or about July 1, 2020. Additional details and application instructions are forthcoming.

The Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellows Program recognizes and supports scholars who can contribute to Princeton University’s diversity, broadly defined, including members of groups that have been historically and are presently underrepresented in the academy or in particular disciplines. The Fellows have a fully-funded one-year appointment renewable for a second year. Eligible applicants interested in working with CTRFL should directly contact Prof. Mueller as soon as possible and include a CV in their initial communication. The 2020 deadline has passed, but the deadline for the 2021 cohort is anticipated to be December 2020 (for a July 2021 start date). Information on the 2019 cohort can be found on the following website: 2019 Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellows.

Prospective Graduate Students

Prospective graduate students interested in CTRFL research should apply for admission to the graduate program in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University: MAE Graduate Admissions. After being accepted into the graduate program, please contact Prof. Mueller to express your interest in CTRFL. Typically, at least one new Ph.D. position is available with CTRFL each year.

Princeton Undergraduate Students

CTRFL generally employs one Princeton University undergraduate student during the summer as an undergraduate research assistant. In addition, Prof. Mueller is always happy to advise undergraduate independent work during the academic year. Please contact Prof. Mueller for further information.

At this time, CTRFL has no openings for undergraduate students from outside Princeton University.
