As a member of a team reporting to the Head of the Nuclear Power Engineering Section, and under the overall guidance of the Director of the Division of Nuclear Power, the Nuclear Engineer (Instrumentation and Control Systems) ensures a results-oriented programmatic response to Member States' priorities by organizing training programmes, workshops and technical meetings, and preparing state-of-the-art reports on instrumentation and control (I&C), and electrical engineering, I&C and electrical modernization projects, application of digital I&C systems, human factor engineering, ageing management of cable and electric components and electric grid stability in the context of nuclear power plant construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance and the transition to decommissioning.
The Nuclear Engineer (Instrumentation and Control Systems) is: (1) an expert in all aspects of engineering for instrumentation and control and electric systems of nuclear power plants; (2) a technical officer, arranging and conducting activities required for the successful and timely Member State support. This support may be delivered via a diverse collection of specific outputs including training workshops, the publication of technical documents, conferences and/or symposia linked to the field of engineering for instrumentation and control and electric systems of nuclear power plants under his/her responsibility and as defined in the IAEA programme; (3) a scientific secretary, planning and leading moderately complex Technical Meetings; and (4) a partnership builder, establishing, developing and maintaining an international network in instrumentation and control systems of nuclear power plant with international organizations and recognized experts.
