Undergraduate Research Assistant Openings

Current openings for undergraduate research assistants.

Within ARFC, many projects appropriate for undergraduates require a significant dedication to learning software skills and best practices. Accordingly, we look for undergraduates who are available for at least 10 hours a week. We additionally invite undergraduates to join in our group meetings. In return for this higher level of participation, we will dedicate the time necessary to train you in high-utility computational skills.
Undergraduate Hourly: Nuclear Fuel Cycle Modeling

Undergraduate Hourly: Nuclear Fuel Cycle Modeling

Start Date: 2017-2018

Required Skills: C++, python, linux, Bash

Desired Skills: git, Doxygen, Sphinx, pytest

The candidate will implement medium fidelity models of multicomponent enrichment, aqueous separations, pyroprocessing, and penetrable storage facilities. These implementations will be compatible with nonproliferation analysis in the Cyclus fuel cycle simulator. The student will be expected to work well both independently and with mentorship. A strong interest in scientific computing combined with interest in nuclear energy and nuclear nonproliferaion will be required. Apply by sending an up-to-date resume by email to Prof. Huff.
