The “Ex core Microreactor Monitoring (EM 2 for Autonomous Operation” project that Prof. Di Fulvio leads is funded by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and aims to develop new concepts of integrated microreactor monitoring that enable their unattended and reliable operation over their lifetime.
We seek motivated undergraduate students from University of Illinois-Chicago for a summer internship on this topic.
Apply online by March 1st: https://go.npre.illinois.edu/UGfellow
