The objective of the Department of Nuclear Energy (NE) is to foster the efficient and safe use of nuclear power by supporting interested Member States in: improving the performance of nuclear power plants, the nuclear fuel cycle, and the management of nuclear wastes; catalysing innovation in nuclear power and fuel cycle technologies; developing indigenous capabilities around the world for national energy planning; deploying new nuclear power plants; preserving and disseminating nuclear information and knowledge; and advancing science and industry through improved operation of research reactors. The department has a dynamic, participative and interactive operating environment with inputs received from the Board of Governors, the General Conference, policy and decision-makers, and technical counterparts in Member States and the international development community. The Division of Nuclear Power comprises the Nuclear Power Engineering Section, the Nuclear Power Technology Development Section, the Nuclear Infrastructure Development Section and the INPRO (International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles) Section. The Division provides core engineering, technological, Human Resource development and management support to interested Member States in the field of nuclear power. The Nuclear Power Engineering Section (NPES) assists interested Member States in the development of the safe and effective operation of nuclear power plants and in the expansion of existing nuclear programmes. It provides guidance and encourages Information Exchange on engineering aspects of Design, construction, commissioning, operations, maintenance, decommissioning; management and Management Systems; human resource development and performance improvement; expansion planning and strategies; and stakeholder involvement. Main Purpose As a member of a team reporting to the Head of the Nuclear Power Engineering Section, and under the overall guidance of the Director of the Division of Nuclear Power, the Nuclear Engineer ensures a results-oriented programmatic response to Member States' priorities by organizing training programmes, workshops and technical meetings, and preparing state-of-the-art reports on engineering and operation of nuclear power plants. Role The Nuclear Engineer is: (1) an expert in engineering and operation of nuclear power plants; (2) a technical officer, arranging and conducting activities required for the successful and timely publication of technical documents as an outcome of tasks in the relevant field under his/her responsibility and as defined in the IAEA programme; (3) a scientific secretary, planning and leading moderately complex Technical Meetings; (4) a relationship builder, establishing, developing and maintaining international partnerships and network in nuclear power plant engineering and operation with international organizations and other relevant stakeholders.
