Dear colleagues

Forgive me for abusing of the DivSOL email distribution list, but I completely forgot last week in Frascati to publicize our ITER Monaco Postdoctoral Fellowship scheme, for which applications are currently being sought for the 2017-18 exercise. Four fellowships are open for competition, with projected start date somewhere around September-October this year. The postdocs are funded by the Principality of Monaco and are open to all scientists and engineers.  Application deadline is 1 March 2016 and applicants can find all the information they need here: http://www.iter.org/monaco2016.

The Monaco scheme has been running for about 8 years and we have been lucky enough to have had several outstanding postdoctoral fellows working within the Divertor Physics and Plasma-Wall Interactions Section. Applicants are not usually aware of the projects which are being proposed internally before any eventual interview, but I am happy to discuss informally the kinds of programmes which might be on offer with prospective applicants. Competition is high for the positions, so there are no guarantees, but if you happen to know of any talented individuals who have just completed, or about to complete a Phd and who may be looking for a postdoc position, I would be grateful if you could mention to them the opportunity at ITER.  Note that to be eligible, candidates must have been awarded a Phd after 1 January 2013 and must hold the doctorate at the time they begin work at the IO.  Given that we don’t have a machine yet (!) we are naturally seeking applicants with a preference for simulation/modelling work, though interactions with fusion programmes within the ITER Parties are perfectly possible. It goes without saying that applicants must hold citizenship of one of the ITER Party member countries. The fellowships are 2 years in duration.
