We are ready to build our accelerator. Are you?

MYRRHA will be the world’s first sub-critical, particle accelerator-driven reactor, cooled by a lead-bismuth eutectic. Our main mission is to build MYRRHA and use it as a research reactor. But there’s still a lot of work to be done, such as constructing MINERVA – the project’s first phase that consists of a particle accelerator and a proton target facility. The commissioning of this accelerator facility is scheduled for 2026.
Together with large teams of ambitious engineers and researchers, SCK CEN aims to develop new medical radioisotopes and solve the nuclear waste issue. To help us achieve our ambitious goals, we are looking for a Beam Diagnostics Engineer.

  • work on a wide range of beam diagnostics elements, including beam interception devices and beam loss monitors
  • cover all aspects ranging from mechanical issues to the integration into the control system
  • manage industrial suppliers and collaboration partners to make sure that components are delivered in time and according to budget
  • align with other SCK CEN teams to ensure, amongst other things, the mechanical integration into the central CAD model, vacuum compatibility…
  • ensure that the beam diagnostics systems are in line with the requested exceptionally high reliability goals

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • master’s degree in physics, electrical engineering, mechatronics or equivalent
  • background in electronic and/or mechanical engineering
  • previous experience with accelerators or other complex technical systems is an asset
  • strong oral and written communication skills
  • the ability to report on activities effectively and efficiently
  • the ability to express yourself fluently in English, both orally and in writing
  • you will work in Mol but during the first years will visit our office in Louvain-la-Neuve on a regular basis
  • you are willing to travel regularly
