Will you be the one to keep our reactor in good shape?

Since 1962, Belgian Reactor 2 (BR2) in Mol has been one of the most powerful research reactors in the world and is a major player in the worldwide supply of radioisotopes, particularly for the medical world. Radioisotopes are used in nuclear medicine for the diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases, including cancer. To keep our reactor in good shape, we are looking for a reactor engineer. In this position, you will be responsible for:

  • analysing, maintaining, and repairing reactor control failures (neutron flux chambers, automatic safety actions, reactor controls)
  • analysing, maintaining, and repairing radiation control failures (radioactive radiation detection, signal conditioning)
  • designing and supporting innovations regarding systems associated with reactor control and radiation control (instrumentation, electronics and measurement technologies)
  • designing and assisting in the design of experimental setups
  • supporting the BR2 spectroscopy lab

To join this frontier, you'll need

  • a Master's degree in Electronics, Metrology or Electrical Engineering
  • an extensive knowledge of electronics, signal conditioning and signal processing
  • experience in the analysis, maintenance and repair of electronic measurement devices
  • experience in the programming of microprocessors
  • experience with radiation measurements will be an asset
  • you will be required to work in an accurate, safety-conscious and independent way
  • you must enjoy delving into electronics
  • you must work in a proactive manner and are a helpful and reliable colleague
