The Role:
The objective of this role is to support our client Diagnostic Team in the analysis of the diagnostic design.
This will cover the area of neutronics analysis, e.g. nuclear heating, nuclear damage, helium generation, material activation, Radwaste assessment and human dose rates.

Description of responsabilities to be performed:
1. Analytic and numerical calculations supporting diagnostic design and diagnostic port integration, in the area of neutronics analysis as required by our client
2. Neutronic calculations support for collaborations between our client and Domestic Agencies
3. Evaluation of the occupational dose rate during maintenance activity in the Port Interspace and Port Cell (particularly when diagnostics are removed from the Port Plug closure flange)
4. Optimization of radiation shielding properties of the Bioshield structure for the Diagnostic Ports and to study the effect of doglegs for diagnostics in the bioshield plug
5. Calculation/Analysis of the neutron and gamma fluxes in the Port cells
6. Calculation of doses to electronics from activated water.
7. Calculation/Analysis of the Shut Down Dose Rate in the Port Cells and in the Port Interspace as well the dose rate during plasma operation
8. Radwaste assessment of the components in the Port Plugs, Port Interspaces and Port Cells
9. Perform detailed radiation calculations for specific Equatorial Ports
10. Collating and checking calculations
11. Suggesting means of improving design of diagnostic components based on these finds.
