The ITER organization and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) have signed an Agreement on Academic and Scientific Cooperation early this year. This Agreement underlines the importance of promoting academic and scientific progress between the two institutions. Thus, boosting the training of young researchers and engineers by giving the possibility of joint supervision of PhD students and training and exchange of scientists and engineers. Among other possibilities, the door is also open for joint research projects on nuclear fusion.
Are you interested in being part of a multidisciplinary team of excellence at international level?
We are looking for Research Engineers in Scientific Computing to join the growing team of the EUROfusion Advanced Computing Hub at BSC.
The successful candidates will participate in cutting-edge European R&D activities related with the optimization and programming of codes devoted to simulated plasma physics science and fusion technology. They will become members of this reference performance group in an international working environment.
Recent MAGNET validations on AC losses presented at the Ewing Event ’22 “The Road to Fusion”
The Ewing Event is an event held yearly by the UK Magnetics Society with a different theme related to magnets every year. This year the topic was The Road to Fusion. From all applications of magnetic technology, nuclear fusion offers perhaps the greatest potential benefit. The ability to generate emission-free electricity from abundant fuels has been a dream for centuries and an achievable goal for decades. The yearly event looked at the different routes to commercial fusion.
3rd Fusion HPC Workshop
The 3rd Fusion HPC Workshop, hosted by our Fusion group and sponsored by the FusionCAT project, was organized as an online event on December 15-16, 2022. As in the previous two editions in 2020 and 2021, the workshop was devoted to computer applications using High Performance Computing (HPC) in the field of fusion research. This year, the workshop attracted a total of 171 registrations from 41 countries all over the world.
Fusion Group joins local students at first-ever CASE Open Day
Thirty students from Barcelona universities joined researchers from BSC’s Computer Applications of Science and Engineering (CASE) department in late November to discuss opportunities at the BSC and in science and engineering more broadly at the first edition of CASE Open Day.
The goal of the event, organized by the CASE department equality commission Equity4CASE, was two-fold: first, to engage with local students and encourage them to apply for positions at the BSC upon graduating, and to promote and give visibility to the work of women researchers within the CASE department.
