Placement Program



  • Tokamak Energy are pleased to be offering a number of Summer placement opportunities to undergraduates who are studying a relevant degree and seeking experience within a commercial Fusion organisation. Our Summer placements offer a fantastic opportunity to work with highly talented individuals and teams, focusing on a focused project or series of small projects and tasks to support our mission and goals.
  • This opportunity will not only be a great way to apply some of your learnings from your studies, but also be part of a commercial Fusion working environment combining R&D with Programme delivery and learning to work in a collaborative and innovative workplace. You will have the opportunity to apply your skills and abilities within a variety of areas including communication, teamwork, project management and much more!

Overview of the chemical engineering placement:

  • You will be supporting the Reactor Fuel Modelling Specialist in developing a dynamic fusion fuel cycle model identifying useful metrics of performances and supporting the design of fuel cycle sub-systems whilst establishing the necessary databases to support the development of any models. Additionally, you will be involved with the definition of the key architecture of the fuel cycle and integration against reactor requirements.


  • Studying a relevant Degree or Masters (Chemical Engineering)
  • Ideally some knowledge of computational modelling and statistical analysis
  • Ideally some knowledge of statistical analysis
  • Motivated and enthusiastic with ability to work independently
  • Good communication skills with ability to work collaboratively with team members
  • Good planning and organisation skills
