    PhD position for a TEM project: “Advanced microstructural characterization of fusion materials: irradiation effects”
    Announcement date: 20 July 2021 - Deadline for application: 24 September 2021

    [show details]

    Description

    In this project, we invite a young talented researcher to join us for the investigation of fusion materials for ITER and future fusion reactors. The project is focused on the microstructural analysis of so-called "in-vessel" materials which will be exposed to a heavy operational conditions including high heat loads and fast particle irradiation damage. At Belgian Nuclear Research Centre we mimic the irradiation conditions and investigate the material response as well as subsequent change of properties. Following ITER needs and European Fusion Roadmap [1] the investigation will focus on main in-vessel materials such as tungsten (W), Eurofer97 steel and a copper alloys. The scientific/technical objective of this project is to build up a comprehensive set of microstructural data to be obtained by transmission electron microscopy and specially designed tools allowing to perform in-situ investigation under applied thermal or mechanical loads. Thereby obtained microstructural information is of fundamental importance to rationalize the change of material properties under irradiation as well as it serves as backbone for the validation of the available computational models dealing with predicting the microstructural state under fusion operational conditions. The project is scheduled for 4 years, it will include a number of international secondments to ITER partners and other fusion labs to perform experiments on unique equipment outside of EU. Main part of the project will be performed at SCK CEN in close collaboration with the host University.

    Requirements

    The minimum diploma level of the candidate needs to be

    Master of sciences , Master of sciences in engineering , PhD

    The candidate needs to have a background in

    PhD scholarship in Phase Plate Fabrication and Application for Electron Microscopy
    Announcement date: 08 July 2021 - Deadline for application: 15 August 2021

    [show details]

    Description

    High resolution electron microscopy of biological samples has a huge potential. Visualizing biological structures with near atomic resolution is a key tool to understand fundamental biological processes. However, image quality and the amount of information that can be extracted form an electron microscopy image is strongly dependent on the contrast which can be challenging when imaging biological materials. As in conventional light microscopy, phase contrast is a means to overcome this problem.

     

    The National Centre for Nanofabrication and Characterization at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Nanolab) is thus seeking a PhD student to work on the development of novel phase plates for transmission electron microscopy.  The candidate will utilize advanced nano fabrication and characterization techniques to develop and characterize robust and reproducible phase plates for the characterization of biological samples by means of electron microscopy.

     

    You will gain expertise in the use of clean room fabrication techniques in the manufacture of phase plates as well as in advanced electron microscopy characterization techniques.  Phase plates are necessary to improve the contrast and thereby the (nano) characterization of non-uniform biological samples with low inherent contrast in the electron microscope. The development of robust and reproducible phase plates is key for the continuing adoption of phase plates in cryo electron microscopy...

    Requirements

    You must have a two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master's degree.
