Post-doc, JRC-Petten: Microstructural characterisation of materials and mechanical property correlation

The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission,Insitute for Energy (IET), in Petten Nehterlands, is looking for a motivated scientist or engineer at post-doctoral level to work on characterization of primarily metallic materials for nuclear reactors using a combination of techniques such as scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), Xray diffraction (XRD), and 3D X-ray tomography.  (see attachment)

The nuclear reactors operating in Europe can be used beyond their original life-time through plant-life management programmes and future nuclear reactors need to be designed for at least 60 years and with higher temperatures, higher irradiation damage and different coolants. This requires a thorough understanding of the long-term material performance under the relevant conditions. The candidate will work in close collaboration with scientists developing physics-based constitutive models with an ultimate goal to understand how material structure and defects at different length scales affect the material properties.  Key degradation mechanisms include creep, fatigue and stress-corrosion cracking.   The work will be performed in close collaboraiton with other European research intitutes.
