MYRRHA, science towards sustainability
Multi-purpose hYbrid Research Reactor for High-tech Applications.
Ever heard about MYRRHA? MYRRHA is the very first prototype in the world of a nuclear installation, driven by a particle accelerator, with a significant thermal output. And we are building this impressive installation right now in Mol, Belgium. Discover here what MYRRHA is all about and how you can contribute to this future-oriented challenge.
It is vitally important to ensure that an innovative research installation can be operated safely. MYRRHA's Accelerator Driven System has two major advantages:
Our world is seriously in need of medical radioisotopes for diagnosing and treating a number of diseases, such as cancer:
MYRRHA is designed to to take over and extend the role of an existing reactor that is playing a major role in international research.
Would you like to be part of making this innovative and challenging research installation a reality? We need bright people with a scientific, operational and international background who full of enthusiasm and who believe in the future of what we are doing. Join the MYRRHA team.
