RIS3CAT Fusion Researcher (R23)

Application deadline:

The Computer Applications in Science and Engineering (CASE) department is looking for Researchers with a PhD degree in computational physics to join the BSC Fusion group (fusion.bsc.es).

The positions are available within the emerging sector project FusionCAT (2019-2022) coordinated and led by the BSC Fusion group. FusionCAT is part of the Research and Innovation Strategy for the Smart Specialisation of Catalonia (RIS3CAT). The candidates should have demonstrated experience at least in one of the following fields: numerical modelling and simulations of neutron transport,
multiphysics simulations, and/or computational fluid dynamics. The successful candidates will assume the responsibility of the R&D activities within the assigned domain in the project under the supervision of the project coordinator.

The overall objective of the BSC Fusion group is to enhance modelling capabilities in fusion by code development, validation, integration and optimization including the use of advanced HPC techniques. We work closely towards the objectives of EUROfusion (www.euro-fusion.org), the European fusion research programme for Horizon 2020, in collaboration with Fusion for Energy (F4E), ITER, International Tokamak Physics Activity, and the Spanish national fusion laboratory CIEMAT.

The FusionCAT project with reference number 001-P-001722 has been co-financed by 50% with € 1,923,463.66 by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union within the framework of the 2014-2020 ERDF Operational Program of Catalonia, with the support of the Generalitat of Catalonia.
