A postdoctoral position is announced at the Division of Nuclear Power Safety, Department of Physics, School of Engineering Sciences, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden within the subject area of nuclear power safety/thermal-hydraulics. The Division of Nuclear Power Safety conducts research on thermal-hydraulics and accident phenomena of risk importance to nuclear reactors, and also performs safety analysis for nuclear power plants (NPPs), including thermal-hydraulic analysis and coupled thermal-hydraulic/neutron-kinetic analysis with particular emphasis on boiling water reactors in Nordic countries. The position is a non-tenurable position with an appointment for two years.
A suitable background for this position would be a PhD degree (not older than two years) in nuclear science & engineering or a similar area with a strong background of experimental research. In-depth knowledge of two-phase flow and boiling heat transfer is essential for carrying out the position. Experience with simulation of thermal-hydraulics of nuclear power plants as well as documentation of research work (publications) is a merit. The position will also require independent work in addition to collaborative skills and creative thinking. In addition, good oral and written communication skills in English are required.
