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.
