Position: Computational Fluid Dynamics Researcher
Location: Burnaby, BC, Canada
General Fusion is transforming how the world is energized by developing the first commercially-viable fusion power plant. Fusion will deliver clean, safe and on-demand power at industrial scale, providing a powerful complement to renewables and a pathway to a zero-emission grid.
Combining new technologies, proven industrial processes, and advances in fundamental fusion science, General Fusion aims to be the first in the world to develop commercial fusion power. Key performance requirements have been demonstrated at the system level, setting the stage for building a pre-commercial fusion power prototype.
As a member of the Applied Physics team, the Computational Fluid Dynamics researcher will develop relevant and accurate CFD models to assist with design and construction of a variety of components related to liquid metal plasma compression systems. The successful candidate will work closely with the engineering and science teams to determine component interactions, governing physics, and desired results. This will involve taking ownership of the modeling results, ensuring that they meet the needs, in both fidelity and confidence, of the engineering team. It is also expected that the candidate will actively reconcile modeling with experiential results and test cases.
Required Skills and Experience:
The work involved in this project combines a wide range of skill sets, and each team member will need to become familiar with the full scope of the plasma development and understand how their work relates to the whole. General Fusion seeks individuals who are self-motivated, have good communication skills and are comfortable with creative problem solving independently and within a group.
Ph.D. or Masters’ degree in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, Engineering Physics, Fluid mechanics, or computational sciences or related fields preferred.
