RESPONSIBILITIES

The Materials Science and Engineering Department at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) seeks to fill a postdoctoral research fellowship in the area of nuclear graphite research, specifically in the research areas of irradiation induced material property changes and graphite failure mechanisms. This position requires a strong background in graphite material properties, experimental testing, and a firm understanding of irradiation behavior of graphite. The research will be funded primarily through the DOE Advanced Reactor Technologies (ART) Graphite R&D program located at INL. The central focus of this program is the qualification and development of a fundamental understanding of graphite behavior for use within nuclear applications.

The ART graphite program is a mature DOE funded program operating one of the largest nuclear graphite irradiation programs in the world. In this position, you will be required to assist in the analysis of the significant irradiated and unirradiated graphite data produced within this program, assist in the development of graphite behavior models, participate in fundamental material science experiments, and form strong collaborations with international and national graphite research institutions. As a consequence, collaboration between the computational and experimental elements of this research program will be strongly encouraged through research exchanges to develop a common intellectual basis for the postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and principle investigators.

Idaho National Laboratory has been designated as the lead Department of Energy laboratory for all aspects of nuclear fuel and material research in the United States. As the designated lead laboratory for the High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor campaign the INL has a comprehensive single-location nuclear graphite research capabilities (including irradiated and unirradiated testing capabilities) in the US and, in particular, the most complete and advanced complement of post irradiation examination capability for studying the material property effects on nuclear graphite materials. The research conducted under this DOE-NE program is strongly supported though INLs nuclear energy mission.

Idaho National Laboratory is located in southeastern Idaho on the Snake River Plain. The region is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoors enthusiasts with Yellowstone National Park to the north, the Teton mountain range to the east, and Sun Valley ski resort to the west.
