  • Engineer/Physicist Position | Li jet diagnostics and characterization

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

 

Task descriptions


• Development, verification and qualification of optical measurement
techniques and sensors to acquire a lithium jet within required accuracy.
• Identification of optimal sensor positions on a scaled mock-up to derive
relevant interlock signals for deuteron beam in case of a lithium loop
malfunction or unintended beam operation.
• Elaboration of an operational scheme for the different operation stages
of the lithium system.
• Identification of instrumentation types and their placement to allow for
redundancy, early failure detection to enhance availability of the target
assembly including qualification in alkali liquid metal systems.
• Investigation on the correlation of the impurity size at the nozzle and
the surface profile downstream.

 


Recommended education and skills


• MSc or equivalent in mechanical engineering, process engineering,
Physics, Electronics, Fluid mechanics.
• English language (written and in speech) to communicate with the local
team, the international DONES teams and to contribute to the
documentation.

 


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, optics,
functionality of materials and measurement devices in a highly
irradiating nuclear ambient environment.
• Use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
