Postdoctoral positions

2024 Monaco-ITER campaign opens

Recruitment opens today for the next Monaco-ITER Postdoctoral Fellowship campaign. If your PhD was awarded after 1 January 2021—or if 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!

"Life changing," "outstanding opportunity," "unique." 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. Up to five researchers are recruited every two years, selected from among applicants from the seven ITER Members or from the Principality of Monaco. Since the start of the program, 39 postdoctoral researchers have been recruited for two-years terms at ITER.

The ITER Organization 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 ninth campaign opens today and closes on 29 February 2024. See all information on the Monaco-ITER Fellowships 2024 page of the ITER web. To apply, see the ITER JOBS page.
