HTS Magnet Engineer

Proxima Fusion

Proxima Fusion

Munich, Germany
Posted on Wednesday, January 3, 2024
At Proxima Fusion, we're driven by a bold mission – to redefine the future of sustainable energy. Our unique concept, built upon the groundbreaking W7-X stellarator and the latest advances in technology, paves the way for commercially viable fusion power plants.
Our work in stellarator optimization, powered by cutting-edge computation and machine learning, is propelling us into uncharted territories of fusion technology. New higher performance design points are unlocked by high temperature superconducting magnets and we're leveraging this technology with advanced computational design capabilities.
We're on a journey to redefine the energy landscape, ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.
As an integral part of this team, you will play a vital role in examining HTS cable and magnet concepts within the context of stellarator design. Your responsibilities will include modelling and simulation, and developing lab tests and hardware prototypes.

If you are:

  • An expert in the field of HTS physics and engineering, particularly in quench prevention;
  • Hands-on experience with HTS materials;
  • Desirable: experienced with soldering HTS materials/NI coils;
  • Proficient in multi-scale and multi-physics simulation using standard commercial tools;
  • Experienced in conceptual design exploration and reduced order analysis;
  • Familiar with laboratory procedures, especially in electrical engineering;

You will help us:

  • Design, build and test (with partners) the first of its kind non-planar HTS stellarator magnet;
  • Examine HTS cable and coil concepts in the context of stellarator design;
  • Develop lab tests and hardware prototypes;
  • Collaborate with domain experts in stellarator optimization to define reduced order proxies for HTS engineering constraints;
  • Work with other design teams on the conceptual design of a stellarator power plant;
  • Together with partners, design, build and test the first of its kind non-planar HTS stellarator magnet;
  • Examine HTS cable and coil concepts in the context of stellarator design;
  • Develop lab tests and hardware prototypes;
  • Collaborate with domain experts in stellarator optimization to define reduced order proxies for HTS engineering constraints.

In return, you will get:

  • Fulfilling Mission: Work on harnessing the universe's fundamental energy source that powers the stars. If you want to contribute directly to transforming the way we produce energy in the world, Proxima is the place to be.
  • Incredible Team: Join a mission-driven, team-oriented, excellence-seeking team from all over the globe. We're working on fusion to change the world and we thrive in a supportive and rewarding environment.
  • World-Leading Partners: We are supported by internationally renowned groups, industrial companies and technical advisors with experience built on groundbreaking fusion experiments.
  • Shared Success: Live the success of the company by taking part in a generous stock options program. We aim for every team member to feel a shared sense of ownership, responsibility, and pride.
  • Healthy Environment: We take care of each other, while pushing ourselves to our best - we are on a marathon, not a sprint. We offer language courses for team members and their families.
