  • Czech Technical University in Prague now offers a new fellowship program, the CTU Global Postdoc Fellowship. This new and attractive two-year fellowship- program offers excellent researchers who have recently completed their PhD the chance to continue their research career at CTU. Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

    At present, the complexity of building traditional large nuclear power units is becoming more and more difficult, which is why worldwide research is increasingly focusing on small modular nuclear reactors for the production of electricity and heat. The Department of energy engineering deals with this topic in projects and qualification theses. The involvement of a postdoctoral worker is therefore possible immediately in a number of areas. This is mainly the basic design of the entire reactor unit. In addition to design tasks, it is necessary to process a number of thermal hydraulic, reactor physic and safety analyzes. Last but not least, the work will focus on the application of integral security methods and probabilistic risk analysis. It is also important to work on implementation studies for real applications and the development of a proven business model for the deployment of small modular nuclear reactors, which determines the design of such an energy system. The main research area at the Department of energy engineering is the molten salt cooled micro reactor Energy Well. This concept is being developed at the Research Center Řež and CTU collaborates on its development. One of the main issues with these reactors is their deployment. The possible application areas such as remote mining projects, remote settlements, desalinization units or island countries such as Indonesia are currently being researched for their potential. In addition application potential for district heating and hydrogen production are under investigation as well.
