Postdocs in Nuclear Power Safety

KTH - Royal Institute of Technology

Stockholm, Sweden

Job description

We invite applications for up to two postdoctoral research positions in the general field of nuclear power safety. The successful candidates will join the Division of Nuclear Power Safety which conducts research on thermal-hydraulics and accident phenomena of risk importance to existing and future nuclear reactors, and also performs safety analysis for nuclear power plants, including design basis accident analysis and severe accident analysis with particular emphasis on light water reactors. The positions are associated with the following sub-topics:

  • Severe accident phenomenology in light water reactors (LWR); and
  • Thermal-hydraulics of future reactors.

The successful candidates are expected to conduct experimental and analytical/computational studies on (i) melt penetration in a pre-heated porous debris bed and underwater melt spreading, which are important severe accident phenomena in LWR; and (ii) natural convection and heat transfer of molten lead/LBE/salt coolant, which is paramount to the safety system design of some future (Gen-IV) reactors such as Lead-cooled Fast Reactors (LFRs) and Molten Salt Reactors (MSRs) - in particular for the residual heat removal system during accidents.

Qualifications

Requirements

  • A doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree, obtained within the last three years prior to the application deadline.
  • The successful applicants should have an outstanding research and publication record. Well-developed analytical and problem solving skills are a requirement. We are looking for strongly motivated persons, who are able to work independently, as well as within a research group. Excellent command of English orally and in writing is required.
  • Great emphasis will be placed on personal competence and suitability.

Preferred qualifications

  • Research expertise
  • Educational ability
  • Awareness of diversity and equal treatment issues with a particular focus on gender equality
  • Teamwork
  • Independence
