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
- To manage electrical interfaces, installation and operation of advanced and complex electrical equipment, including preventive and curative maintenance (Electrical engineering) or to manage the integration, installation and operation of the LIPAc equipment and to follow-up of the engineering design review(s) of the different prototypes already manufactured and commissioned (Mechanical engineering).
- To provide the electrical and/or mechanical engineering support during installation, checkout, commissioning, beam operation and maintenance phases at Rokkasho,
- To contribute to the definition of the maintenance plan of the LIPAC accelerator and ensure the execution of the preventive and corrective maintenance of accelerator components of the LIPAc facility,
- To troubleshoot technical issues with a view to proposing and implementing technically and administratively appropriate solutions,
- To analyse the feedback on operation in order to improve the reliability, availability and the maintainability of the LIPAc facility,
- To assist the Maintenance leader in implementing and following up the maintenance plan and procedures for the LIPAc (e.g. Electrical distribution board, Alignment, Vacuum...)
LIPAc, the Linear IFMIF Prototype Accelerator, is an accelerator using superconducting linac presently under installation and commissioning in Rokkasho Fusion Research Institute in Japan in the framework of the IFMIF/EVEDA project. The goal of the IFMIF/EVEDA project is to validate the technological concept of a Li(d,n) fusion relevant neutron source for materials testing. It is being implemented under the Broader Approach Agreement between Japan and EURATOM in the field of Fusion Energy Research running until December 2019. LIPAc aims at running a deuterons beam of 9 MeV at 125 mA in Continuous Wave mode; this performance will break through present accelerator technologies frontiers. LIPAc will validate the technological concept of the 40 MeV accelerator of IFMIFDONES. We are looking for people interested to join the Integrated LIPAc Unit in Rokkasho to reinforce the international team in accelerator technologies and to support the team onsite technically, ensuring the safe and efficient execution of the experimental campaigns.
