The graphite core is the life-limiting aspect of Advanced Gas-cooled Reactors – and the EDF Energy Graphite Technology Group has a significant influence in determining the safety of the core and setting each reactor lifetime. Right now, we need a technically minded individual with at least a B.Sc in a relevant subject to contribute to these topics as part of a high profile and innovative team in a technically challenging environment.
Your primary focus will be on providing technical advice on the observed and future structural integrity of the ageing core and/or the performance of the core in normal operation and seismic events. This will give us the evidence we need for the lifetime safety cases for Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactor graphite cores and enable informed commercial decisions on lifetimes to be made by EDF Energy Generation. Developing and applying modelling approaches, undertaking physical rig work and carrying out analyses of cores comprising many thousands of components – these are just some aspects of this business critical role.
Along with a generous, negotiable salary, you'll be playing a part in bringing cleaner energy to the UK. To us, 'Better Energy' means sustainable and responsibly generated energy and we need a committed and enthusiastic team to make it happen.
