Posting title

PhD (CIFRE) - New Technologies for Nuclear Power Plants M/F



Contract duration (nb of months)


Job description

Next-gen nuclear energy sources such as Generation IV fission reactors and future fusion reactors are increasing the need for more autonomous and resilient designs, whether for monitoring and control electronics, or preventive maintenance. This PhD will address these areas, first by proposing embedded sensors to monitor radiation environments inside nuclear power plants. Then, usage of these monitors shall be demonstrated, both to anticipate radiation risks (e.g. schedule and perform maintenance), or to trigger adaptive recovery mechanisms to push the envelope towards harsh mission profiles (reactor core, fusion). Outside IC design and electrical testing, validation through experimental irradiation campaigns will be part of the activities.

In this PhD position you will be joining ST's challenging R&D environment, inside a team with long-standing expertise in radiation effects for sea-level (automotive, industrial, medical), avionics, and space applications. Key partners/customers include EDF & CEA, with whom reactor decommissioning is envisaged, and the ITER consortium to pave the way for the reliability of fusion energy.


MSc / Bac+5 with core skills in digital IC design and semiconductor physics. Knowledge in radiation physics is optional.
