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. Along with large teams of ambitious engineers and researchers, SCK CEN is aiming to develop new medical radioisotopes and solve the nuclear waste issue. To help us achieve our ambitious goals, we are looking for an integration coordinator. In this position, you will:

  • assume responsibility for the integration activities on all proton beam lines and the overall tunnel integration, as well as the utility rooms such as the RF gallery and accelerator labs;
  • act as the main contact from the accelerator group for the NFS group, which is responsible for the building construction and technical infrastructure, including EMI, interface specifications, cooling and ventilation and alignment;
  • ansure a coherent, complete modelling of the ACC systems in the 3D CAD with the help of the component experts, external companies and collaboration partners;
  • be responsible for the planning and procurement of all girders and support systems;
  • define the required central data collection such as rack lists and fiducialisation standards;
  • ensure a smooth transfer of the injector beam line installed in Louvain-La-Neuve to its final location in Mol with help of the ADT colleagues;
  • along with the ACC project officer, the ADB head and the team members, play a key coordinating role in the planning and execution of the installation;
  • mentor of a project engineer (responsible for e.g. magnet procurement), with a possible increase to one or two additional work packages in the future

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • PhD in physics, electrical engineering, mechatronics or equivalent
  • multi-year experience of working at particle accelerator facilities of a comparable size
  • multi-year experience in the integration aspects of particle accelerator facilities of comparable size
  • experience in contract placement (tendering) and follow-up
  • strong verbal and written communication skills in English, French and Dutch would be an asset.
  • ability to perform activities effectively and efficiently
  • you will work in Mol, with travel to Louvain-la-Neuve, other collaborations and industrial partners
  • reporting directly to the Accelerator Group Leader (ADB)
