Hungary hosted the first Russian-Hungarian hackathon for nuclear engineering students

On April 29-30, 2021, the first Russian-Hungarian nuclear hackathon, HackAtom Hungary, was held, dedicated to finding solutions for forecasting energy efficiency at NPPs and analysing equipment control system parameters. Twenty-four teams from the University of Debrecen, the University of Dunaújváros and the University of Pecs took part in the event.

On the first day of the event, professors from five Russian universities (NRNU MEPhI, SPbPU, MPEI, TPU, and UrFU) gave lectures on atomic physics, reactor technologies, and other related topics. Then the participants were given two tasks, for which they had 24 hours. The tasks included questions at the intersection of nuclear technology and IT.

The next day, the work presentation was held, which took place in the format of “science slam” when the participants had only 5 minutes to explain their solution to the task, so the jury evaluated not only the solution itself, but also the communication skills of the participants.

The jury was composed of teachers from Russian and Hungarian universities.

As a result of the competition, first place was taken by the team “Stronɣtium”, second place – the team “Zeus”, third place -– the team “OR”, all teams from the University of Debrecen.

“HackAtom” is a unique event that combines challenges in information technology, nuclear physics, and nuclear engineering to be resolved. In the course of such an intellectual competition, new ideas and projects can be born and, importantly, a nuclear student community can be formed. This format is a great way to improve your knowledge in nuclear technology and learn something new, said Valery Karezin, director of educational projects and international cooperation service at Rosatom State Corporation.

“The Paks NPP supported the competition because the nuclear power plant needs highly qualified specialists. The Paks NPP maintains close relations with technical universities,” said Antal Kovacs, Director of Communications at Paks NPP.

The event was organized with the organizational support of the Rosatom Central Europe Regional Center in partnership with the Paks NPP and the Paks-2 company, which created together with these universities the educational program “Paks-2 Academy”.

Opportunities, Proposed PhD Topics

PhD position at Jožef Stefan Institute

The Reactor Engineering Division at the Jožef Stefan Institute, Slovenia, offers a four-year, full-time PhD position starting on October 2021.

JSI is looking for a PhD student to strengthen their research team in the field of computational structural mechanics, structural integrity and ageing of nuclear materials. The research team is specialized in the development of multiscale computational simulation tools for polycrystalline metallic alloys. The research focuses on the explicit modelling and simulations of ageing effects at the level of microstructure to improve the understanding of local cracking conditions.

Using statistical analysis of the simulation results, the goal is to identify critical parameters affecting the material integrity. The PhD research topic will be along these directions.

Basic Information

  • Type : Full-time, 4 year PhD position (Young Researcher)
  • Domain : Computational Structural Mechanics & Nuclear Materials
  • Country : Slovenia
  • Organisation : Jozef Stefan Institute

Opportunity details

The position is funded by the Slovenian Research Agency within the Young researchers program.

The PhD student will work at the Reactor Engineering Division at the Jožef Stefan Institute under the supervision of dr. Samir El Shawish.

JSI is looking for a candidate with a master’s degree in physics or similar field with good programming skills.

Experience with finite element modelling is beneficial but not required. ‍JSI expects a high level of motivation and diligence from the candidate, and they offer the possibility of conducting top scientific research and an excellent starting point for the development of a scientific career. The PhD student will be provided with a creative and stimulating research environment, access to a high-performance computing cluster and enabled training abroad.

Application deadline: June 30, 2021 – send your CV & Motivation Letter to samir.elshawish@ijs.si.
