We are ready to build this 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 to 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 consisting 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 wants to develop new medical radioisotopes and solve the nuclear waste issue. To help us achieve our ambitious goals, we are looking for a
Particle Accelerator Machine Physicist. You will:

  • work on beam optics/dynamic topics of the 100 MeV superconducting linac and beam transfer lines
  • contribute to the definition of the machine operational concept
  • define the commissioning and operation tools for implementation by the control team
  • participate in the beam commissioning in 2026

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • masters or PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering or equivalent
  • experience in performing accelerator machine physics studies
  • experience in commissioning and operating a particle accelerator
