Position: Scientist (f/m)
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: Development and qualification of multi-physics multi-scale computational schemes for higher resolution 3-D core and nuclear fuel simulations; Establishment and application of best-estimate plus uncertainty methodologies for coupled core and plant system transient simulations; Qualification of advanced nodal core simulators for technical and scientific support on reactor safety analyses; Publication of scientific articles and supervision of students
Requirements: We are looking for a team player able to work independently and with strong interest in method development, validation and uncertainty quantification. The candidate should have in-depth knowledge of deterministic and/or stochastic neutron transport methods combined with experience in multi-physics reactor simulations. Proficiency in modern programming languages as well as good understanding of mathematical statistical methods is expected while practice in high preformance computing would be ideal. A solid background in multi-phase flow heat transfer and/or fuel thermo-mechanical phenomenology would be considered as a strong added value and a certain familiarity with chemistry would be an asset. Very good command of English is required and knowledge of German would be beneficial
