Monaco-ITER Fellows

New campaign announced

The seventh recruitment campaign for the Monaco-ITER postdoctoral fellowship program opens on 13 January.

Between 13 January 2020 and 1 March 2020, you can apply to carry out a two-year program of original research in an area of fusion science or technology relevant to the ITER Project. Fellows must take up their assignments before end December 2020. (Click to view larger version...)
Between 13 January 2020 and 1 March 2020, you can apply to carry out a two-year program of original research in an area of fusion science or technology relevant to the ITER Project. Fellows must take up their assignments before end December 2020.
Since 2008, thirty postdocs have carried out original programs of fusion-related research at the ITER Organization, mentored and supported by ITER scientists and engineers.

The positions are funded by the Principality of Monaco, which signed a Partnership Arrangement with the ITER Organization back in 2008 and renewed its sponsorship in 2018 for ten years.

The researchers are recruited at the rhythm of five every two years. Within ITER, research possibilities exist in many areas of fusion science and technology, including:

• control technology
• plasma-facing materials and components
• burning plasma physics
• heating and current drive physics and technology
• fusion plasma diagnostics
• superconducting magnet technology
• electrical engineering
• mechanical/structural analysis
• remote handling
• vacuum and plasma fuelling technology
• cryogenics
• tokamak operations
• tritium breeding and tritium handling technology
• thermohydraulics

The seventh campaign of recruitment opens on 13 January 2020. You can apply if: 1) you are a national of China, the European Union plus Switzerland, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, the United States, or the Principality of Monaco; and 2) your PhD was awarded after 1 January 2017 (or you will have received your PhD before 31 December 2020).

The current group of Monaco Fellows: Jae-Sun Park, Javier Artola, Joyeeta Sinha, Jonathan Coburn and Satoshi Togo. (Click to view larger version...)

The principal motivation of the Research Fellows should be the development of excellence in research in fusion science and technology within the ITER framework. Recognized talent and creativity, together with understanding of the relevance of your research interests to the ITER Project, are required.

The application process will be launched through the JOBS page on the ITER website on 13 January 2020. Until that date, you can find all relevant information on the Principality of Monaco/ITER Postdoctoral Fellowships page here.

For information about past awardees, see these articles from the ITER Newsline: 2018, 2016, 2014, 2012, 2010, 2008.
