The Computational Science Department (CSD) is a new and evolving department at PPPL led by the Associate Laboratory Director for Computational Science (ALD). The Executive Assistant will provide critical support to the ALD, support the growth of the CSD, and help execute the department’s research goals. The Executive Assistant manages the calendar, correspondence, and travel of the ALD and the CSD and helps ensure the ALD is focused on tasks that service key research programs and strategic priorities for the organization. An important responsibility is to ensure that research programs and long-range scientific strategic information is communicated in a timely, accurate and appropriate manner. The Executive Assistant will also ensure the ALD is made aware of issues that require immediate attention.
A proud U.S. Department of Energy National Laboratory managed by Princeton University, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is a longstanding leader in the science and innovation behind the development of fusion energy — a clean, safe, and virtually limitless energy source. With an eye on the future and in response to national priorities, PPPL also has begun a strategic shift from a singular focus on fusion energy to a multi-focus approach that includes microelectronics, quantum information science, and sustainability science. Whether it be through science, engineering, technology or professional services, every team member has an opportunity to make their mark on our world. PPPL aims to attract and support people with a rich variety of backgrounds, interests, experiences, and cultural viewpoints. We are committed to equity, diversity, inclusion and accessibility and believe that each member of our team contributes to our scientific mission in their own unique way. Come join us!
