We are ready to build our accelerator. Are you?

MYRRHA will be the world’s first sub-critical, particle accelerator-driven reactor to safely produce nuclear energy while solving the nuclear waste issue. But there is still a lot of work to be done, such as building MINERVA – the project’s first implementation phase that consists of a 100 MeV high-power, superconducting particle accelerator and a proton target facility for the development of (new) medical radioisotopes.The beam commissioning of this accelerator facility is scheduled for 2026. To help us achieve this goal, we are looking for a cryogenics engineer. In this position you will:
 

  • be responsible for the specification, tender, contract follow-up, commissioning and operation of the cryogenics system of the MINERVA 100MeV superconducting linac
  • ensure its compliance with the exceptionally high reliability requirements of MINERVA
  • align the interfaces with the other groups (building, RF, integration, controls,…)
  • keep the technical documentation, including drawings and quality assurance records, up-to-date

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering or equivalent
  • experience with cryogenics systems
  • the ability to communicate in a multidisciplinary, international environment
  • good knowledge of English; knowledge of French/Dutch is an advantage
