Brief: Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS), an MIT spinout pursuing the fastest, surest way to clean, limitless fusion energy, is looking for an early-career structural engineer to contribute to the design of magnet structural systems.
CFS’ mission is to enable world-wide clean energy for everyone, creating a sustainable environment for current and future generations. We’ve created a credible path to an operating fusion power plant in 15 years which leverages our novel collaboration with MIT and funding from strategic and financial investors who share our vision. This begins by developing a new class of high-field superconducting magnets that will enable the SPARC tokamak to demonstrate net energy from fusion for the first time. To execute this plan, we are now looking to add talented people to the team who:
A new class of high-temperature superconductors (HTS) allows for building superconducting magnets at unprecedented magnetic fields and is the enabling technology for CFS to build smaller, economic fusion energy systems. However, creating high magnetic fields in a compact system requires designing and building structures at the limits of engineering. The Structural Engineer will:
The ideal candidate will have:
If you share our mission and believe you are a good fit for this position, please do apply.
