UKAEA is advertising four senior positions for people to play major roles in its drive to deliver on fusion’s enormous potential for carbon-free electricity.
UKAEA is seeking a Programme Director for STEP (Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production) – a new £220 million five-year initiative to design a fusion powerplant. STEP aims to demonstrate the technical and commercial viability of fusion. This unique opportunity requires a director with the ability to manage large programmes and handle ambiguity and uncertainty to realise this first-of-a-kind world-leading ambition.
Secondly, UKAEA’s unprecedented growth has created a unique opportunity for three new director posts to lead the fusion research programme, manage operations of world-class fusion facilities and drive benefits in adjacent sectors.
