Ensure optimal core operation reactor core load management
- Develop the core loads of the world’s most all-round nuclear reactor
- Increase the availability of the reactor
- A Master's degree in Engineering or in Physics is required
- Contribute to a clean and safe future
Make the difference as a Reactor Physicist:
The number of operating days can be increased and work on a large reconversion programme that allows the reactor to be used on a broader scale, making increased isotope production possible.
To make this possible, we expect you:
- To see the core load management of the BR2 reactor as a challenge to achieve optimal irradiation conditions, taking into account safety regulations, fuel consumption and BR2 operations.
- Carrying out reactor load calculations for the BR2 reactor cycles
- Preparing, executing and processing BR2 reactor measurements
- Attending to the daily observation of the BR2 reactor cycles and the follow-up of reactor load operations and reactor transients including incidents (SCRAMS);
-Participating in the execution of neutronic analyses of experiments, irradiation devices, reactor internals and fuel elements to support experimenters, commercial productions and BR2 operation;
- Determining the necessary design parameters to support project engineers in the development of new experiments/irradiation devices for BR2;
- Performing criticality studies for the storage of fissile material and performing safety studies;
