Career in "Reactor Physics and Core Design"

Dear all,

I have completed my MSc and PhD in Nuclear Engineering (Reactor Physics and Core Design) from a UK university. I am currently working at a National Lab in France.

Can you please suggest/recommend me a site where I can find the most suitable jobs related to Nuclear Engineering/Reactors Physics on a single site? I can provide an example of a site: https://www.cfd-online.com/Jobs/ which provides all the CFD jobs on a single site. Has there any dedicated and/or a well-known site like CFD-ONLINE that advertise the recent postings of nuclear engineering?

Many thanks in anticipation. All the best wishes.
SA

sometimes on roadtechs.com. but that is mostly temporary openings and mostly its crafts and rad protection. otherwise you just have to check the fuel vendors, and the plants themselves. i dont know about the smaller companies, i guess you just have to search the web . good luck!

Reactor physics and core design is a very specialized field with few practitioners world-wide, unlike CFD, which is relatively huge.

For commercial systems, the fuel suppliers or utilities have their own groups doing core design and related safety analysis. The only independent, non-fuel-supplier, of which I'm aware is Studsvik-Scandpower; there may be others, but SS provides codes to utilities for commercial systems. Otherwise, national research organizations, e.g., US DOE, or the national labs, or France's CEA, have programs. France's EdF also develops and employs methods.

In the US, the American Nuclear Society (ANS) has the Reactor Physics Division (RPD), which hosts Physor, an international meeting of reactor physicists.
