Organization Name Nuclear Engineering
The newly-established Khalifa University of Science and Technology combines The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research and The Petroleum Institute into one world-
class, research-intensive institution, seamlessly integrating research and education to produce world leaders and critical thinkers in applied science and engineering.
Khalifa University of Science and Technology endeavors to be a leader among research intensive universities of the 21st century, while catalyzing the growth of Abu Dhabi and the UAE’s rapidly developing knowledge economy.
Research and teaching conducted at the Nuclear Engineering Department spans from frontline topics in basic science (atomic, nuclear, and particle) to more applied areas such as nuclear reactor physics, nuclear reactor technology, nuclear thermal hydraulics analysis, and nuclear power safety.
Our Nuclear Engineering Department invites applications for a postdoctoral position under an approved fund to investigate numerically and experimentally a novel hybrid renewable / clean energies system.
In this role the successful candidate will carry out :
The appointment will be for two years. The position is within the area of CFD modeling of nuclear reactor cores and thermal energy storage.
The topic is related to the strong interest towards new concepts of coupling nuclear reactors to thermal energy storage to safely follow the electricity grid variable load profile without affecting the reactor operation (operated at the maximum rated power).
Your responsibilities will also include :
We seek a candidate with a strong background in experimentation and modelling of one- and two-phase flows.
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.
Knowledge of other CFD tools are a very strong plus, such as Star-CCM+, Code Saturne, or OpenFoam. Other programming skills, e.g. Matlab, are a plus.
The candidate is expect to have considerable knowledge and skills in :
