Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to make a difference? Join our team and contribute to the future of fusion energy.
Multi-fidelity material models for predicting fusion component performance. In the Applied Materials Technology group we develop the technologies that will be used to qualify fusion components for extreme and untestable environments. We work on developing new experimental hardware to obtain rich data and the advanced computional methods that are required to link this data to simulations for engineering decision making. You will be responsible for a creating a fusion relevant component test case to analyse the predictive capability of material models of increasing fidelity. You will perform laboratory based material scale experiments to calibrate the material model. You will then use these material models to predict the response of a component scale test case you have designed using finite element analysis and experiments. Throughout your placement you will have the opportunity to learn and apply advanced image-based experimental methods such as Digital Image Correlation. You will also have the opportunity to learn the latest open source engineering simulation tools and deploy them on a super computing cluster. We are looking for someone who can readily adapt to multi-disciplinary project demands and can quickly learn new technical skills.
We have an excellent opportunity for motivated and enthusiastic university students to join our 2024 Industrial Placement Programme. We offer excellent opportunities for motivated and enthusiastic undergraduate students to join our 2023 Year in Industry scheme. Our scheme gives you a unique opportunity to contribute to the development of one of the most advanced sources of sustainable and clean energy. During your year-long placement with us, you will experience a broad range of diverse tasks, work on real projects, and gain invaluable experience within the fusion energy sector.
