We are looking for a PhD candidate who will perform measurements of (n,xn) cross sections using GAINS spectrometer at the GELINA facility. These cross sections are required for improvement of the current nuclear databases. In the nuclear-energy applications these databases are used to model range of processes from a critical zone of the reactor to a shielding of the core and radioactive waste. Improvement of the modelling precision might potentially reduce construction costs of a nuclear reactor, since less conservative estimation of building material would be required.
Responsibilities and tasks:
• preparation and conduction of experiments at GELINA facility• performing computer Monte-Carlo simulations of the measured reactions• performing analysis of the acquired data• preparation of scientific articles and conference contributions• contributing to and participating in scientific conferences• teaching activities (15% of total workload) include mostly supervision of Bachelor and Master students.
