Renaissance Fusion - the first magnetic confinement fusion company in the EU- is currently prototyping two fusion-enabling technologies, with the goal of fully demonstrating and commercializing them (albeit in non-fusion markets, initially) within 3 years. The two technologies are (1) radically reinvented High-Temperature Superconducting (HTS) magnets and (2) controllable, plasma-facing liquid metal walls that will extract heat from the reactor, shield it from neutrons and thus and prevent it from becoming radioactive. These innovations will enable our own stellarator reactor design, form a versatile cornerstone of the emerging fusion market (as they could be easily adapted to tokamaks and other reactors) and find their way in other markets. We are forming a team of the brightest, most driven scientists and engineers to realize this vision within 11 years.
Here we are looking for a talented engineer, physicist or material-scientist to sustain and stabilize thick, gravity-defying, free-surface liquid metal flows. This will include the production of innovative alloys and components such as special pumps for in-house experiments and, eventually, for production and sales.
Our team is young, agile, international and based in the exciting city of Grenoble, by the French Alps.
