Established more than 200 years ago the University of Strathclyde has always had a global outlook. The University is situated in the heart of Glasgow and has a vibrant, international community including 22,000 students and more than 3,000 staff from 100 countries. Strathclyde is dedicated to ‘useful learning’ and is recognised internationally for its close working relationships with businesses and its partnerships with industry, government and industry.
The University of Strathclyde has created the Advanced Nuclear Research Centre which builds on its extensive track record of research and innovation in the field. The focus of the centre is infrastructure and through life management of nuclear installations, which aligns with the expertise in nuclear research at Strathclyde built up during a period of over 50 years. It integrates academic expertise across multiple Departments to deliver novel solutions, systems and technologies for its industry partners. This multi-disciplinary international programme of research is delivered in partnership with industry partners such as ANSTO Australia, Babcock International, Bruce Power Canada, and EDF Energy UK.
Strathclyde is expanding its Nuclear research capacity and is looking for a talented individual active in any of a range of fields across nuclear engineering and nuclear science. We would particularly welcome applicants active in through-life management, automation, non-destructive evaluation and decommissioning. However, applicants with appropriate skills and nuclear experience that complement these topics will also be considered. Strathclyde has global industrial nuclear research customers with challenging and ambitious goals to improve the performance of their nuclear power plants and the through life costs of their systems.
