Postdoc in Nuclear Energy Engineering: Transients in Lead-cooled Reactors

Postdoc in Nuclear Energy Engineering: Transients in Lead-cooled Reactors

KTH - Royal Institute of Technology

Stockholm, Sweden

Job description

The position entails further development of the computer code BELLA, for simulation of dynamic transients in liquid metal-cooled reactors. In particular, the work concerns both the behaviour of advanced fuels and response from the control and safety systems of the reactor. BELLA has been developed by researchers and scientists at the division of nuclear engineering and is used for safety informed design of liquid metal-cooled reactor concepts, with a special focus on lead-cooled reactors, such as SEALER and SUNRISE-LFR. Within this project, the selected candidate will implement modelling of minor actinide bearing fuels, as well as of both active and self-actuated passive control and safety systems. The work will be carried out within the frame of the EU-project PATRICIA and a Swedish Science Council project focused on Generation-IV reactors. You will work together with professor Janne Wallenius, Dr Sara Bortot, other postdocs, PhD students and MSc diploma students at the division. 

Qualifications

Requirements

  • A doctoral degree or an equivalent foreign degree, within nuclear engineering, physics or material science obtained within the last three years prior to the application deadline (With some exceptions for special reasons such as periods of sick or parental leave, kindly indicate if such reason exists in your resume);
  • Proven skills in terms of scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals, as well as experience from developing computer codes for simulation of dynamic systems.

Preferred qualifications

  • Experience in dynamic systems modeling and control theory is highly preferential, as well as the knowledge of Matlab-Simulink and Python;
  • Pedagogical experience from teaching at universities is of merit. In order to succeed and enjoy your role, we prefer that you have a well-documented ability to cooperate, to work independently and that you are aware about diversity- and equality issues, with particular focus on gender equality;
  • Great emphasis will be placed on personal competency.
