General Fusion is transforming how the world is energized by developing the first commercially viable fusion power plant. Fusion will deliver clean, safe, and on-demand power at industrial scale, providing a powerful complement to renewables and a pathway to a zero-emissions grid.

Combining new technologies, proven industrial processes, and advances in fundamental fusion science, General Fusion aims to be the first in the world to develop commercial fusion power. Key performance requirements have been demonstrated at the system level, setting the stage for building a pre-commercial fusion power prototype.

Position overview

Diagnostics are an important technology to assist in the development of Fusion devices. Often complex physics needs to be understood in order to extract information from a fusion chamber.  This physics must be captured in a reliable robust device along with analytical algorithms and software to convert the signal into a physically meaningful parameter. A leader is needed who can manage a team of world class physicists and engineers to develop these measurement technologies and deploy them across all General Fusions Projects.  Each of these specialists is responsible for the execution of specific projects.   This manager will build the capabilities of the team to ensure that they have the necessary technical and operational skills to quickly and effectively engineer useful measurements systems. In addition, this manager will maintain a technology roadmap that ensure the long term competitiveness of General Fusion’s diagnostic technology.
