We have an exciting opportunity for a Sciences Manager to coordinate the development plans to secure the future of the facility with compelling new physics goals and improved capabilities.

Such activity will range from supervising physics discussion and simulation to overseeing engineering analysis and projects. A hands-on approach (or close oversight thereof) is encouraged to support the manufacture and installation of test components, prototypes and sensors, alongside close engagement with scientific arguments.

    • Facility developments and innovative technology approaches to secure the physics case for facility based on ITER and pilot plant goals.
    • Coordination of special projects (under general oversight of Ops division) to identify and reduce long range major risks to the facility.
    • In support of these goals, the jobholder will coordinate DIII-D related internal GA R&D projects, working under the MFE IR&D leader and the DIII-D Director to identify, agree and plan suitable tasks.
    • In some cases projects may proceed to hardware prototyping or installations, which the jobholder may also supervise (in consultation with Ops division).
    • Coordinate program-wide activities to gather input from the DIII-D team and identify the key research questions and means to address them.
    • Provide reporting from long range development to document potential developments, and material to support outreach and proposal of such developments to DIII-D stakeholders.
    • At a lower level, continue to engage in key physics leadership that plays a crucial role in GA-'s portfolio (such as leadership and staff supervision on disruption mitigation).
    • Perform other duties as assigned or required.
