(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title: Postdoc position Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy Systems

This project deals with dual- or multi-purpose use and integration of nuclear technology into the energy system. The research is prompted by 1) current ideas to produce hydrogen gas through electrolysis of water by using wind and solar power and 2) the vast potential of using nuclear power technology for producing hydrogen gas or only heat. Combined thermal splitting and electrolysis is another emerging technology which may develop into a competitive technology if based on SMRs. On the other hand, it should be noted that gas-cooled fast reactors, with their high operating temperatures, are well-suited for thermally splitting water into its constituents with potentially an extremely high efficiency. These developments are likely to have a significant impact on the future energy system and the Centre will investigate the nuclear component in such technologies. The project will provide competence development for young researchers that will allow them to fulfill roles as either future TSO (Technical Support Organisation) personnel that will be required for transition from the current nuclear power plant fleet to a future fleet including or based on SMR technology, or as experts within Swedish nuclear industry. The objective is furthermore to assemble and provide to other Centre projects key design features for further developments.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title: Postdoc position in Machine learning for nuclear reactor core monitoring

A 3-year postdoctoral position is offered in the group ‘reactor physics, modeling and safety‘. The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to the study of a new generation of neutron noise-based techniques for light water reactors monitoring and diagnostics. Reactor neutron noise consists of small, stationary fluctuations of the neutron flux in the core, and it is induced by different physical phenomena such as mechanical vibrations of core components and perturbations of the coolant flow. The analysis of reactor neutron noise allows to identify anomalies that might become a concern for the operations and the safety of the reactor. In this project, artificial neural networks will be investigated to characterize anomalies from their effect on the reactor neutron noise. The models will be assessed using experiments carried out in a research reactor with well-annotated neutron noise sources. For the training of the artificial neural networks, synthetic datasets will be generated with high-order and low-order computational tools and the impact of modeling approximations will be explored and quantified. The outcome of the project will be important for the development and consolidation of trustworthy methods that can be applied to detect issues in nuclear power reactors and thus support more efficient and safer operations.

(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc  summary/title: Postdoc in computational multi-scale modelling for H2-applications

Before introducing hydrogen into the transport sector on a large scale, several complicated challenges need to be solved. Interestingly, these challenges are mostly positioned at the intersection between materials science and fluid dynamics. For example, both improvement of existing materials and better control of mass transfer and two-phase flow will be needed to move far beyond the present status concerning activity and storage for fuel cells. In the case of sensing, there exists a number of characteristics of sensors that are limited by the available materials. At the same time, it is well known that mass transfer phenomena may control the detection rates and influence the lifetime of sensors. In this project, we aim to develop a computational multi-scale platform that can easily integrate theoretical methods for flow, chemistry, and materials science. Such a platform can also connect with existing databases when searching for new or improved materials and optimizing reactors. We will build a computational platform in which theoretical tools, such as quantum mechanics and flow calculations, are combined to enable direct comparisons with experimental results concerning fuel cell performance and hydrogen storage/sensing. As a Postdoctoral Researcher in this project, you will be working at the Division of Fluid Dynamics at Chalmers University of Technology. The project is carried out in close cooperation with the Division of Chemical Physics. Working as a Postdoctoral Researcher requires a great deal of creativity and ability to think “outside the box”. Furthermore, as the current project is rather interdisciplinary, collaborative and communicative skills will be essential.
