Postdoc ad

I am seeking a postdoc to work with me at Cornell as part of the Simons collaboration on Hidden Symmetries and Fusion Energy. You should have a PhD in applied mathematics, physics, CS, or related areas and know something about design and analysis of numerical methods; previous experience with plasma physics, while surely helpful, is by no means required.

Apply here! Preferably by Dec 31, 2018, though the search will remain open until the position has been filled.
