Fusion, the process that powers the Sun and Stars, is one of the most promising options for generating the cleaner, carbon-free energy that our world badly needs. UKAEA are at the forefront of realising energy from fusion, working with industry and research partners to deliver the ground-breaking developments that will underpin tomorrow's fusion power stations with the aim of bringing fusion electricity to the grid.

The team carry out a number of activities such as microstructural design, evaluation of the impact on properties by novel joining at interfaces and combinatorial load impact assessment under irradiation to name but a few.
Working as part of this team, you will be exposed to the cutting-edge of materials technology, with fantastic opportunities to develop international recognition for efforts to advance materials performance in a fusion environment. We would expect you to be able to accommodate uncertainty and changing requirements as the programme (and material requirements) evolve.
