Helion is building the ultimate solution to one of the world's most pressing challenges - climate change. Our goals are courageous – we plan to demonstrate electricity from fusion in 2024. We move fast, prioritize what matters, and iterate quickly so we can accelerate everything we do.
At Helion, we grow and learn together while working with never-before-seen technology. A career here means you will interact with the world's leading scientists, engineers, and builders. Be part of our team – bring your skills, experiences, and determination to make a difference. Together we'll make a future with unlimited clean energy a reality.
We use the Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNP) code to model, test, analyze, and optimize designs. In this role, you will use MCNP (and related codes) to model our fusion generator, diagnostic equipment, dose, and interactions with the environment; write internal reports to document your findings; and grow your MCNP techniques.
Problem Solver -- you can identify areas for improvement and review related information to develop and evaluate options and implement solutions.
Critical Thinker – you use reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of solutions, are skilled at assigning metrics to objectively evaluate options, and connect your work back to the application.
A forward thinker who is always looking ahead for their next project, this position is someone who likes looking at the big picture to understand future projects
Experience writing input files, running MCNP6, and using MATLAB or Python scripts to process data,
Willingness to continue education and learn more on the job,
Bachelors or postgraduate degree in nuclear engineering, physics, mathematics, or related field, or equivalent Experience with MCNP and fundamentals of nuclear physics
Desired Experience (not required)
Using SpaceClaim to model simple geometries,
Activation analysis using ORIGEN/SCALE, FISPACT, SERPENT, or similar codes,
Understanding of shielding and common rules/materials for neutrons and photons,
Involvement in professional societies such as the American Nuclear Society and/or IEEE.
