Job description

As a "Nuclear Safety Analyst Severe Accident", you are jointly responsible for determining the strategy on how Severe Accidents can be detected in MYRRHA without giving rise to serious discharges to the environment. In order to determine this strategy and to demonstrate its effectiveness, models must be developed that are capable of realistically or conservatively predicting the behaviour of the installation in highly degraded Severe Accident conditions.

At present, the analysis of Severe Accidents is primarily carried out using models in SIMMER (a coupled thermohydraulic/neutronic code) and using simplified conservative analytical calculations.

The development of reliable models to study these severe accidents requires an extremely in-depth understanding of thermohydraulics and reactor physics.

In many cases, it concerns models and solutions that are innovative and scientific in nature and the results of which can be published in the relevant professional literature.

Required qualifications

  • Master's degree in engineering sciences, preferably with a specialisation in thermohydraulics and/or reactor physics;
  • Experience in solving complex thermohydraulic and neutron-physical problems.
  • Experience with CFD packages (OpenFOAM and/or ANSYSFluent) would be a plus
  • A PhD in a thermohydraulic subject would be a plus.
  • Good knowledge of English.
  • Knowledge of Dutch and/or French would be an advantage.
  • A thorough and careful approach to work in terms of quality.
