Department: 141101 – Nuclear Engineering
Location: Raleigh, NC
Essential Job Duties:
The Reactor Dynamics and Fuel Modeling Group (RDFMG), established at the Nuclear Engineering Department of North Carolina State University (NCSU), has expertise and experience in developing, validation, and application of methodologies in core neutronics, core and system thermal-hydraulics, and coupled neutronics/thermal-hydraulics/fuel performance calculations.
Efforts have been towards development and application of calculation schemes for multi-physics multi-scale simulations for advanced reactor design and safety analyses supplemented by validation & verification and uncertainty quantification.
You will be responsible for supporting reactor physics and its applications related research on on-going projects, help preparing proposals and publishing peer-reviewed papers in these areas and assist the above-mentioned faculty in working with graduate and undergraduate students.
The position involves becoming the custodian of the NCSU-NEM code and implementing state of the art methods and techniques in the NCSU-NEM code. Typical tasks of the postdoc position include designing numerical algorithms for solving reactor physics problems and numerical computations acceleration, adding generalized perturbation theory analysis capabilities through adjoint methods, adding new physics and ameliorating the code subroutines, verification of the code implementation and results, and helping RDFMG students with their research and publications.
- Enhancing the NCSU-NEM code’s capabilities in different geometry modeling options and bringing it to the state of the art.
- Adding adjoint analysis capabilities to the NCSU-NEM code.
- Adding generalized perturbation theory capabilities to the NCSU-NEM code.
- Adding additional physics and verifying the various subroutines found in the NCSU-NEM code.
- Building and implementing numerical algorithms and acceleration techniques into the NCSU-NEM code.
- Providing assistance, coordination, supervision, and feedback to the RDFMG students.
- Helping students with writing research/technical articles, proposals, and reports.
A visiting scholar 、Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., M.D., D.V.M., Sc.D.) in appropriate field awarded no more than five (5) years from initial date of postdoctoral appointment.
- Cumulative GPA of at least 3.5
- Has both B.Sc. and M.Sc. in nuclear engineering.
- PhD in nuclear engineering, completed by start date.
- Strong technical problem-solving abilities
- Strong interpersonal skills
- Excellent technical writing and verbal communication skills
- Previous internship/co-op experience in the field of NEM and adjoint methods.
- PWR or BWR core design analysis experience from projects involved. Industry oriented projects is a plus.
- M.Sc. degree with topic related to transient analysis.
- Experience with the neutronics core analysis code NCSU-NEM and TH code NCSU-CTF.
- Experience working with nodal expansion methods and CFD.
- Experience working with engineering workstation computers and LINUX operating environments.
- Computer programming/software capabilities and experience in FORTRAN, C++, PYTHON, Bash, MS-Office, LaTeX.
- Teaching experience of at least 3 years.
- Cumulative GPA of 4.0
- Leadership potential or skills displayed through extracurricular activities
