A fixed term (12 months) grade 7 researcher position is available at the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds. It is funded by EPSRC through a project in collaboration with the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy.
You will develop a novel time stepping algorithm to speed up simulations of fast ions in fusion reactors and integrate it into CCFE’s GPU-accelerated simulation suite LOCUST. Development of the new algorithm will be based on a recent combination of the widely used Boris method for the Lorentz equations with spectral deferred corrections.
