Professor of Nuclear Safety

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich



The Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering ( at ETH Zurich and the Laboratory for Reactor Physics and Thermal Hydraulics at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), Villigen (www.psi .chinvite applications for a joint professorship in Nuclear Safety.

Switzerland's nuclear center of excellence, and wants to benefit from access to the institute's unique large-scale experimental facilities and simulation analytical infrastructures. He or she should demonstrate excellent international record of research accomplishments in the field of nuclear engineering and reactor safety, with a focus on thermal fluid dynamics and / or heat and mass transfer. Safety aspects of the decommissioning of nuclear power plants and wastewater treatment and disposal technologies or similar,

The successful candidate is expected to establish an ambitious, world-class research program at the interface between fundamental research and application, in particular related to the core areas of nuclear reactor safety. Specific focus of the research will be centered around experimental thermal fluid dynamics and advanced instrumentation combined with computational methods in order to address scientific issues related (but not limited) to multi-scale thermal-hydraulics phenomena, multi-physics simulations, code validation with uncertainty analysis, as well as applications to reactor / fuel design, accident analysis and spent fuel management.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and projects, a statement of future research and teaching interests, and a description of the three most important achievements *. The letter of application Should be Addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Joël Mesot. Submissions will be reviewed starting on 31 July 2019, but applications are welcome until the position is filled . ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples. We specifically encourage women to apply.

ETH Zurich attaches importance to a qualitative assessment of academic achievements. With that in mind, you are kindly asked to attach a brief description of your three main achievements to the documents (maximum half a page each). In addition to research results, these may include special teaching and development services, services for the academic community or society, software development, patents, knowledge and practice transfer, spin-offs and the like.
