newcleo is the clean and safe nuclear technology company. Privately funded and headquartered in London, UK, newcleo was launched in 2021 to be a disruptor in the field of nuclear energy. Its mission is to generate safe, clean and inexhaustible energy for the world, through a radically innovative combination of existing, accessible technologies.
newcleo is building the next generation system with the goals to: (1) eliminate the need for geological repositories by using a fast neutron flux avoiding production of long life radioactive elements; (2) develop an Accelerator Driven System (ADS), based on the intrinsically safe coupling of a particle accelerator and a sub-critical reactor; (3) accelerate the development of new fuel cycles, including thorium, that provide economic, clean, safe and inexhaustible energy from nuclei and the opportunity to burn the long-lived nuclear waste produced by the old generation of nuclear reactors.
With visionary co-founders, newcleo brings together a team of engineers with deep knowledge of nuclear energy with younger recruits with a fresh mindset, working to design an innovative micro Lead Fast Reactor with significant commercial applications, for example in shipping. newcleo wants to be the first step toward the evolution of its industry to become fully respectful of people and the environment. To develop a new, sustainable, and completely safe way of generating nuclear energy that will lead humanity to zero emissions, and to the mitigation of global warming.

Job Description

We are looking for System Engineers who will collaborate to Lead Fast Reactor basic design activities, focusing on system and operational aspects.

Main Responsibilities

  • From the conceptual design of an LFR reactor, establish the “process diagrams” of the nuclear plant (including the BOP and auxiliaries).
  • Defining the operation of the plant and the regulations and protection logics.
  • Deliverables will consist of technical notes describing the operation of the plant and process diagrams (including components and instrumentation).
  • Performs engineering analysis of the plant by numerical simulation to provide the transients analysis for all DBA’s (design basis accidents). This analysis is oriented to verify compliance with safety constraints (contribution to safety analysis) and to prepare the technical specifications of the components (contribution to procurement)
  • The definitions of the “elementary systems” necessary for the operation of the plant. These systems will be defined on the base of the engineering analysis and process specifications as lead purification. In collaboration with the “safety and licensing” group, the identification of the systems that ensure the fundamental safety functions and which must therefore comply with the IAEA standards.
  • Deliverables will consist of technical notes describing the systems and their operation and providing the operating conditions necessary for the dimensioning of the components and others operational information necessary to the preparation of the procurement specifications.

Desired Qualifications

  • MSc in Nuclear Engineering (Master or PhD is a plus)
  • Fluent Italian andEnglish
  • Good knowledge of design and analysis principles for large or complex systems
  • Ability to participate in team meetings and give technical presentations
  • Experience with multi-physics analysis methods for engineering applications, particularly as they relate to power systems.
  • Experience with multi-physics simulation codes (RELAP. CATHARE, MATLAB/SIMULINK,………)
  • Experience with regulation systems
