Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Pathways: intensive introductory course

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the European Union Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Consortium (EUNPDC) invite graduate and postgraduate students of engineering disciplines to apply for an intensive introductory course on the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), mechanisms to control their further spread and pathways to disarmament.

The course will take place on 68 December 2022 in the Stockholm area, Sweden.

The course will cover the fundamentals of biological, chemical and nuclear weapons, as well as of missiles and other means of WMD delivery; threats associated with the military use of WMD and potential terrorist uses of chemical, biological, radioactive and nuclear (CBRN) material (i.e. CBRN terrorism); arms control treaties; WMD-free zones; non-proliferation treaties and means of their verification; export controls; and mechanisms aimed at achieving disarmament.

The course will also examine the impact of new and emerging technologies, and the role of the engineering industry in preventing the spread and use of nuclear weapons. The course will be instructed by renowned experts on WMD non-proliferation, arms control, disarmament, export controls, verification and related subjects from SIPRI, other European research centres, think tanks and international organizations.

SIPRI will closely follow the Swedish Government’s recommendations concerning the Covid-19 pandemic, related travel restrictions and other safety measures. Should it not be feasible to convene an in-person course, SIPRI will offer the same course in a virtual format. If required, all participants should be prepared to show the necessary Covid-19 documentation.

Eligibility and application
The course is open to all students currently enrolled in a European university and pursuing a graduate or postgraduate degree in any engineering discipline. Applications from qualified women and under-represented communities are encouraged.

The language of instruction is English. There is no tuition fee, and SIPRI will cover accommodation, per diem, and economy-class round-trip costs for students travelling from Europe, upon request. The deadline for applications is 15 October 2022. As space is limited, we recommend that applications are submitted as early as possible. Participants will be given access to preparatory materials and are expected to read them in advance of the course.

Applications should be submitted in English via SIPRI’s electronic application system to be eligible. Please access the form via the ‘apply’ button at the end of this page.

Please note that you will be asked to upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a record of courses taken to date and grades received as well as a letter confirming your enrolment in a graduate/postgraduate programme.

POST-DOC position at CEA

« New experiments in the PULSTAR research reactor for the validation of high-fidelity multi-physics LWR simulations »

The PULSTAR experimental reactor is located at North Carolina State University (NCSU) in the United States. It is a 1 MW pool-type light water reactor fueled with PWR fuel.

The current approach to validate the multi-physics coupling at CEA is exclusively based on experimental data obtained from the operation of the PWR power plants, which is now considered insufficient to validate the coupling of advanced multi-physics models.

In this context, a post-doctoral work is proposed at CEA Cadarache, with the objective of contributing to the specifications of a new experimental program in the PULSTAR reactor for the validation of coupled multi-physics models, as part of a collaboration with the American DoE; the postdoctoral fellow will be jointly supervised by NCSU.

The experimental program will study the coupling between multi-physics parameters in steady state conditions, as well as the effects of neutronics/thermal-hydraulics/fuel physics feedback during transients, at the scale of the fuel rod and the water subchannel. Transients of variable dynamics induced by reactivity injection ramps will be considered, at appropriate reactor power levels. An adequate instrumentation to access the local temperatures of the pellet and the cladding should be proposed. The measurements thus collected, under perfectly controlled experimental conditions, will constitute benchmark data for the validation of multi-physics simulations.

The post-doctoral work plan includes the following:

– develop a digital twin of the experimental reactor core, at the fuel rod scale, using CEA simulation tools;

– propose and study configurations of interest by simulation, to contribute to the definition of the experiment for stationary and transient states;

– contribute to the definition of the possible instrumentation for the experiment, according to the target uncertainties.

Profile required : PhD in applied physics in the nuclear field: reactor physics, thermal-hydraulics or nuclear fuel performance

Opportunities, Proposed PhD Topics

PhD position at UNIPI (University of Pisa)

University of Pisa (Unipi) is looking for strong and motivated PhD candidates from international Universities.

This year, Unipi offers over 300 PhD scholarships many of which will be in collaboration with or co-funded by companies. The PhD scholarship is for three years and no fees are requested by the University of Pisa for its PhD programs.

The proposed research topics of the PhD projects will be aligned with the most innovative research fields including green revolution and ecological transition, renewable energy, digital transition, circular economy, sustainable mobility, etc.

The University organizes transversal didactic activities every year, allowing to acquire competencies that go beyond the specialized notions of the individual PhD course. Moreover, abroad periods will be strongly encouraged for all PhD Students and further funds for travelling, accommodation, conference fees and other research budgets will be available.

On 20th July 2022 a second call has been open and the deadline will be on 23rd August at 1:00 p.m.

A third call will be open in September.

For all the information about the application, admission process etc., please visit the website https://dottorato2022.webhost1.unipi.it/en/home-english/.
