Organizational Setting

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 the Nuclear Power Engineering Section(NPES), the Nuclear Power Data Analyst contributes to the development, maintenance and validation of the databases, manages web-applications, implements nuclear power plant production related projects and publishes technical documents in order to contribute to the IAEA's overall objective of fostering the exchange of information.

The Nuclear Power Data Analyst supports the ongoing development and recommends improvement of database structures and links between datasets; monitors and reports on the quality and maintains the update of the relevant websites linked to the databases. He/she develops analysis tools in order to enhance IAEA research, reporting and presentations that incorporate data.
