The post-doc researcher's mission is to carry out prospective modelling of the environmental impacts of various very low-level waste (VLLW) management scenarios resulting from the dismantling operations of the Fessenheim nuclear power plant using the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) methodology.
- State-of-the-art on the issues of nuclear clearance levels and VLLW management
- Construction of VLLW management scenarios according to the nuclear clearance level
- Construction of life cycle models of waste scenarios
- Assessment of the impacts generated by these scenarios (LCA calculation methods)
- Exploitation of results
- Writing of reports and publications
- Knowledge of LCA is strongly desired
- The practice of LCA software (SIMAPRO) recommended
- Initiative and ability to work in a team and to adapt to a collaborative project involving European partners
- Knowledge of the field of nuclear power plants appreciated
- Level B2 in English (oral and written) according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
- Writing and communication skills
- PhD in Engineering Sciences/Physics/Physics and eco-design
The IPHC, a joint research unit under the joint supervision of CNRS and the University of Strasbourg (UMR7178), is a multidisciplinary laboratory where research teams from different scientific cultures (ecology, physiology and ethology, chemistry and subatomic physics) develop very high level programs based on scientific instrumentation. The IPHC is structured into 4 departments and has a total staff of 393 staff including 257 permanent staff (ie 119 researchers and teachers / researchers and 138 engineers and technicians), 46 staff on fixed-term contracts and 90 doctoral students.
The candidate will join the Radiochemistry team of the IPHC which undertakes basic and applied research in areas with high societal demand. This job offer is part of a European Interreg Project entitled "CO2 Inno" involving German and French university partners, and having as its general objective the territorial development of a nuclear site in the process of being dismantled (Fessenheim -68 -). The specific objective of this research work is the comparative study of VLLW storage and recycling options to their nuclear clearance threshold.
In concrete terms, this research will provide data that will enable regional authorities to assess the impact of the storage and possible recycling of materials from the Fessenheim nuclear power plant.
The Radiochemistry team is composed of 2 researchers, 5 professors/researchers, 5 engineers and 4 PhD students and the candidate's work will be carried out under the responsibility of Ms BOLTOEVA and Ms QUARANTA.
