Seeking the next group of Monaco-ITER Fellows

 (Click to view larger version...)
Recruitment opens for the next Monaco-ITER Postdoctoral Fellowship campaign on 17 January 2022. If your PhD was awarded after 1 January 2019—or you are about to obtain one—and you are interested in participating in one of the great scientific and technical challenges of the 21st century, this may be an opportunity for you!

"A unique and inspirational environment." "Life changing." "An atmosphere of excellence." "Fun." These are some of the ways former or current Monaco-ITER Fellows describe their two-year postdoctoral experience at ITER. Working in fusion science or engineering, shoulder-to-shoulder with experts in their domain, Monaco Fellows not only contribute meaningfully to the ITER Project but also gain invaluable professional experience and, in many cases, the chance to participate in the publication of high-quality journal articles in fusion science and technology.

The positions are funded by the Principality of Monaco, which signed a Partnership Arrangement with the ITER Organization in 2008 and renewed its sponsorship in 2018 for ten years. Researchers are recruited at the rhythm of five every two years, selected from among applicants from the seven ITER Members or from the Principality of Monaco. Since the start of the program, 35 postdoctoral researchers have benefitted.

ITER is seeking top candidates with an excellent track record of creativity and accomplishment. Research possibilities exist in many areas of fusion science and technology, including:

  • Control technology
  • Plasma facing materials and components
  • Burning plasma physics (confinement, stability, plasma-wall interactions, control, energetic particle physics)
  • Heating and current drive physics and technology
  • Fusion plasma diagnostics
  • Superconducting magnet technology
  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering/ structural analysis
  • Remote handling technology
  • Vacuum technology and plasma fuelling technology
  • Cryogenics
  • Tokamak operations
  • Tritium breeding and tritium handling technology
  • Thermohydraulics
The eighth campaign opens on 17 January 2022 and closes on 1 March 2022. (All Fellows are expected to take up their award on site by 31 December 2022.) The application process will be launched on opening day through the JOBS page of the ITER website; until then, see the Monaco-ITER Fellowships 2022 page for all information.  

(The 2024 recruitment campaign will open in mid-January 2024.)
