Are you an experienced Engineering Analyst with extensive expertise in the application and management of Computer Aided Simulation techniques?

Do you have substantial knowledge and industry experience in research, development and application of novel numerical modelling algorithms to complex multi-physics problems. This includes the performance of research studies and testing programmes to demonstrate those novel initiatives where appropriate?

The UK Atomic Energy Authority have an excellent opportunity for a Principal Engineering Analyst (Models & Assessments) to join their team within the Central Engineering department.

The independent component assessments provided by the Engineering Analysis Group enable the Chief Engineer`s Unit to deliver its role as the `Design Authority` for the broad range of facilities within UKAEA, ranging from the JET and MAST-U tokamaks to state-of-the-art research entities such as FTF and HEAT.

This Principal Engineering Analyst (Models & Assessments) role serves to support the Engineering Analysis Group Leader in ensuring the integrity of the CCFE plant and equipment (in particular JET and MAST) and the provision of effective, high quality engineering analysis related to the in-vessel components of the ITER and DEMO tokamaks.

Crucially the analyses undertaken include complex (multi-physics) calculations, both based on first principles and numerical solutions such as finite element analyses.

The UKAEA hosts and manages the JET nuclear fusion energy experiment on behalf of the EU and is also home to the UK`s MAST-U fusion energy experiment. UKAEA also works with industry and other third parties to develop new technologies currently in Remote Handling and Materials research. Following recent UK funding two new centres of excellence in tritium fuel handling and component testing and validation are being built. The culture at UKAEA promotes research, innovation and leading edge technological excellence, whilst investing in its people.
