Internship opportunities at the ITER Organization

Task Title: INTERN-SCOP02-Edge Localized Mode (ELM) detector for the Plasma Control System Domain: Science & Operation Domain Department: Science, Controls & Operation Department Division: Not Applicable Section: Experiments & Plasma Operation Section Duration (in months): 4 to 6 months Location: France, 13067 St Paul Lez Durance Cedex Description of tasks:

The Plasma Control System Platform (PCSSP) should be able to detect so-called Edge Localized Modes which are intermittent instabilities in a tokamak plasma. It is the aim to build a logical detector/signal processor that can distinguish between different ELM types and determine typical characteristics such as the frequency. This logical detector will have to be developed in Matlab/Simulink, and is to be tested using synthetic ELM signals, rather than real diagnostic data.

Task 1: Determine the key characteristics that the detector has to resolve (detector requirements); Task 2: Determine/create a selection of synthetic use-case input signals, based on experimental tokamak ELM observations; Task 3: Help in building the logical detector/signal processor in Matlab/Simulink; Task 4: Test the signal processing and determine its performance range.

The ITER Organization offers internship opportunities to undergraduate and postgraduate students with the objective of providing these students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in their field of study, whilst collaborating in an international, scientific and multicultural environment. Internships are offered for up to six months, extendable for up to one year (depending on the category). To find out more about our internship program, please refer to our website (click here)

For any further questions, please contact [email protected]

Internship opportunities are limited to nationals from countries participating in the ITER Project (China, the European Union, India, Japan, Korea, Russian Federation, and the United States).

Please also note that interns are not considered staff members and shall, therefore, not have the status of “Staff” as per the ITER Agreement and the Headquarters Agreement (see more information on these constitutive agreements in Legal Resources). Neither the ITER Staff Regulations nor the privileges and immunities granted to ITER Organization staff are applicable to interns. The ITER Organization salary, pension scheme, and social insurance coverage do also not apply.
