    1. Available position

      1 person

    2. Recruitment theme

      Research on micorobial effects on the simulated materials of fuel debris components

      (Summary)
      For the decommissioning of the damaged Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station (1F), the effects of microorganisms on the long-term properties of the nuclear fuel debris remaining in the damaged reactors are of special concern. It is therefore important to understand the interaction mechanism of microorganisms with fuel debris components under the physical/chemical conditions relevant to 1F. To this end, this position focuses on a comprehensive study to investigate the physical/chemical interaction between a wide range of microorganisms and simulated materials of fuel debris components (e.g. UO2, UO2+ZrO2, UO2+ZrO2+Fe, etc.) in the aqueous solution systems relevant to the conditions expected at 1F.
