Position: Postdoctoral Fellow
Institution: Paul Scherrer Institut
Location: Villigen, Aargau, Switzerland
Duties: In the frame of an international project, we study the evaporation of radionuclides dissolved in liquid metal coolants to be used in advanced nuclear reactor systems. Within this scope, your tasks will be: Preparation of homogeneous lead and lead-bismuth eutectic samples containing radioactive dopants of different elements; Studying the evaporation of the dopants from the molten metal and their deposition from the gas phase by transpiration and thermochromatography experiments under variation of chemical conditions (dopant concentration, gas phase composition); Publish and present results in journals and at international conferences; Supervision of young scientists on the Doctoral and Master levels
Requirements: You are a highly motivated candidate who enjoys working experimentally in an interdisciplinary environment. A PhD degree in Chemistry, Material Sciences or Metallurgy with a focus on Inorganic and Physical Chemistry is required. Good experimental and technical skills are mandatory for the execution of the experimental program. You should be a team player and have good command of the English language. Scientific writing skills are particularly important. Experience in preparation and handling of liquid intermetallic samples and radioactive substances as well as knowledge in gas phase chemistry and radiochemistry are strong assets. Communication skills in German are also advantageous
