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 experimental tasks for the DONES High Flux Test Module and other experimental setups. Among the specific tasks are:
• Deriving mock-ups from the existing test module definitions which are adapted to the necessities of experiments (added instrumentation, accessinbility, mounting etc.)
•Verification of the design against codes&standards, i.e. Pressure
• Devising instrumentation, integrating the instrumentation in the
experimental setup (together with the test engineer and technician).
• Elaborating in cooperation with workshops and suppliers the
manufacturing definition of mock-upsion procedures.
• Performing quality assurance and manufacturing documentation.
Feedback to the HFTM design process.
• Performing thermal-hydraulic and mechanical analyses for the expected
or experienced experimental conditions.
• Supporting the execution of experiments in the HELOKA-LP, FLEX and QPETE facilities (together with the test engineer and technician).
• 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.
• Materials, fabrication (welding, brazing, electric discharge
machining, conventional machining).
• Fluid mechanics, structural mechanics.
• English language (written and in speech) to communicate with the local
team, the international DONES teams and to contribute to the
Additional recommended skills
• Nuclear engineering.
• Systems engineering.
• Pressure vessel codes (PED, ASME, RCC).
• Instrumentation and control.
