  • Plans and prepares I&C integration activities in the FWC facilities and systems, including control system interfaces and layout of control/electrical cubicles;
  • Establishes the industrialization and full automation of the DMS to ensure high reliability and safe ITER operation;
  • Supports the DMS task force in implementing I&C process control for DMS prototypes and test devices in laboratories and tokamaks worldwide considering the specific control system environments and conditions;
  • Participates in the design and implementation of interlocks necessary for ITER’s successful and safe operation to international standards;
  • Follows up on the FWC System instrumentation and control procurements with relative stakeholders;
  • Is responsible for compiling and maintaining I&C design basis documentation and supporting documents using formal review procedures;
  • Identifies, implements and monitors provisions for installation, testing, maintenance and commissioning to be compliant with the process design;
  • Provides input to the qualification programme for field mounted I&C devices;
  • Contribute to procurement management of the final design/build related contract, and ongoing support as a member of the Delegated Design Authority of ITER as necessary;
  • Provides expertise and technical advices to machine assembly and commissioning teams to resolve requirements and performance issues across various systems;
  • May be requested to be part of any of the project/construction teams and to perform other duties in support of the project;
  • May be required to work outside ITER Organization reference working hours, including nights, weekends and public holidays.

Measures of effectiveness

Special notice: May be requested to work on beryllium-containing components. In this case, you will be required to follow the established ITER Beryllium Management Program for working safely with beryllium. Training and support will be provided by the ITER Organization.

  • Ensures that the Engineering, procurement and implementation activities are completed according the required time schedule, to a high quality and within the authorized budget;
  • Performs work in compliance with IO quality and safety requirements;
  • Efficiently resolves design and interfaces issues for FWC in a systematic and professional manner;
  • Communicates and collaborates effectively and harmoniously with all internal and external stakeholders;
