We are hiring!

Do you want to be part of the ZARATHUSTRA team? Our research group invites you to apply for one Post-doctoral position and one PhD position with the following details:

Post-doctoral position ZARATHUSTRA-P1

The selected candidate will study the instabilities that are present in the discharge of electrodeless plasma thrusters and magnetic nozzles, developing models and codes amenable to linear and nonlinear stability analysis techniques. The contract will be funded by the recently awarded ERC Starting Grant project ZARATHUSTRA (Revolutionizing advanced electrodeless plasma thrusters for space transportation). The candidate will join the Space Propulsion and Plasmas Team (EP2, http://ep2.uc3m.es/) at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, and collaborate closely with other researchers fully dedicated to the project under the supervision of Dr. M. Merino.

PhD position ZARATHUSTRA-D5

Your research work will consist in developing fluid/kinetic/wave models to simulate and understand the physics of electrodeless plasma thrusters and to help revolutionize their design. The contract will be funded by the recently awarded ERC Starting Grant project ZARATHUSTRA (Revolutionizing advanced electrodeless plasma thrusters for space transportation). The candidate will join the Space Propulsion and Plasmas Team (EP2, http://ep2.uc3m.es/) at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, and collaborate closely with other researchers fully dedicated to the project under the supervision of Dr. M. Merino.
