We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore, about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether, PSI employs 2100 people. In nuclear reactors, zirconium alloys are commonly used as cladding material to enclose the uranium-based fuel. During operation, the fuel cladding oxidizes in the cooling water, leading to hydrogen uptake into the metal. Depending on the temperature, hydrogen in zirconium is stable as dissolved into the metal lattice (solid solution) or in form of brittle precipitates (hydrides). Hydrogen, both in solid solution and in its precipitate form, affects the mechanical performances of the material. For the Nuclear Fuels Group we are looking for a Trainee Thermo-mechanical behavior of zirconium alloys under hydrogen influence and microstructural characterization Your tasks Mechanical characterization of Zr properties at elevated temperature in presence of hydrogen Metallographic sample preparation and microstructure characterization by light optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy including EBSD Reporting and critically evaluating the obtained data Your profile Master student with a Bachelor degree in materials engineering, mechanical engineering or related fields Understanding of phase diagrams, thermomechanical properties and diffusion Experience in standard metallographic preparation is an advantage Knowledge of a data evaluation software (Origin, Matlab, or Excel proficiency) Good communication skills in English You have not yet completed your Master thesis We offer Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration.
