A key challenge in power plant design is the need to integrate many different systems. As we explore ways to accelerate the realisation of societal and economic benefits of fusion power through the first generation of fusion power plants, we must establish greater integration between physics, technology and engineering. This requires further growth at UKAEA to exploit its new capabilities, creating exciting opportunities to be part of a highly skilled, multi-disciplinary team driving to deliver fusion power.
To meet the UK`s needs, we have a number of opportunities available across all levels:
– Control & Instrumentation
Fusion involves the combination of multiple engineering disciplines to realise design solutions at the forefront of technology, both in terms of tools employed and the final product. We have opportunities to further develop our existing fusion machines and work on the design of the next generation of devices.
The culture at UKAEA promotes research, innovation and leading edge technological excellence, whilst investing in its people.
