  • Engineer Position | DONES irradiation modules design and validation

One of 13 positions offered by the University of Granada aimed at university graduates and doctoral degree holders to carry out a research, training and mobility programme at international research centres and laboratories related to the IFMIF-DONES project

 

The task comprises to support the multidisciplinary team at KIT in the engineering design task of the DONES High Flux Test Module and other modules. Among the specific tasks are:

- Optimizing the design in respect to fabrication procedures / quality assurance, reliability and irradiation performance.
- Integrating changes in the 3D CAD models.
- Performing thermal-hydraulic and mechanical analyses.
- Devising instrumentation and control of the local control system in interaction with the DONES central control system.
- Verification of performance against requirements and codes\&standards.
- Managing requirements and interfaces in interaction with other teams for design and transversal activities of the European DONES project.
- Documentation and presentation of results. 

 

Recommended education and skills
• MSc or equivalent or higher (PhD) in mechanical engineering, process
engineering or physics.
• at least 3 years of work experience.
• Fluid mechanics, structural mechanics.

Additional recommended skills
• English language (written and in speech) to communicate with the local
team, the international DONES teams and to contribute to the
documentation.
• Nuclear engineering.
• Systems engineering.
• Materials, fabrication (welding, brazing, electric discharge machining,
conventional machining).
• Pressure vessel codes (PED, ASME, RCC).
• Instrumentation and control.
• Proficiency in programming (Matlab/Scilab, C/C++, Python, others).
• German language, to communicate in the team, with workshop and
service staff.

 

Qualifications to be trained on the job
• Background of the fusion projects IFMIF-DONES and DEMO.
• Working in a multi disciplinary science and engineering team.
• Management of requirements, interfaces, design changes.
• Integrating aspects of neutronics, thermal-hydraulics, mechanics,
materials and fabrication in the design of irradiation devices.
• Use of CAE tools: Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computational Fluid
Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Method (FEM).
• Specifics of low pressure helium cooling in irradiation devices.
