RESPONSIBILITIES


Idaho National Laboratory is in need of an experienced Experiment Design Engineer in its Experiment Design department in Idaho Falls.

The Experiment Design Engineer will perform experiment design for testing of nuclear fuels and materials. The individual will be responsible for experiment design as well as fabrication and associated activities leading to irradiation. Setting up, performing and overseeing a variety of laboratory research studies aimed at resolving design and fabrication issues with minimal direction and oversight is expected in this position. The individual also collects, assimilates, and interprets data to support experiment design and analysis while staying abreast in industry developments nationally and internationally.

Furthermore, the engineer will generate innovative design solutions in using nuclear reactors as tools to bring about irradiation effects in nuclear materials/experiments and play a key role in defining the approach to solving technical problems that arise during materials processing and fuel fabrication. Contributing to programmatic direction with input on technical issues including recommending performers, defining scope, estimating magnitude of scope, contributing to risk registers, and providing input to status and program highlights will also be expected. Interacting with other technical personnel and Principal Investigators within the directorate and at the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR), Materials & Fuels Complex (MFC), and/or Transient Reactor Test Faiclity (TREAT) will be key in this position.

The engineer may also:

* Generate ideas for new proposals.

* Participate in external collaborations.

* Prepare material for scientific reports, papers, and present information at national and international conferences.

* Contribute to the development of new capabilities and intellectual property as required.

* Participate in national and international fuel development working groups.

* Serve as the lead design engineer directing ongoing fuel fabrication tasks.

The incumbent for this position must have the ability to communicate and create balanced solutions with teams of multidisciplinary personnel including thermal transport, nuclear physics, and structural mechanics. The selected candidate should have familiarity with nuclear reactors and suitable components, materials, and fabrication methods for use in capsules and small recirculating loop systems including high rigor levels for design control, quality assurance, and configuration management.

If you have the experience and meet the requirements for this position, we encourage you to apply!

-------------------------

REQUIREMENTS

BS degree in relevant engineering or scientific discipline plus 5-8 years relevant experience, or MS degree in relevant engineering or scientific discipline plus 3-6 years relevant experience, or PhD in relevant engineering or scientific discipline plus 2-4 years relevant experience is required.

The position requires a DOE level "L" security clearance, therefore, US citizenship is required.

Specific requirements include: advanced knowledge of:

* Design and drafting practices and tools (e.g. 3-dimensional modeling, engineering analysis, and design software)

* Engineering materials properties and selection

* fabrication practices

* commercially available mechanical and electro-mechanical components

Excellent oral communication skills and a capability to clearly describe complex experiment designs and analyses, and develop persuasive arguments to defend designs and analyses are required.

Requires knowledge of nuclear reactor systems and reactor experiments.

Further requirements include experience with quality assurance (specifically NQA-1), design control, specifications, procurement/contracting, and graded rigor application.

PREFERRED REQUIREMENTS:

Experience with ATR and/or TREAT experiment design and operations is preferred.

Professional Engineer License is a plus.

Experience is desired with supporting the development of nuclear fuels and materials for use in systems cooled by pressurized water and/or liquid metal systems, as well as familiarity with relevant support equipment (e.g. pumps, pressurizers), engineering consensus standards, and instrumentation technologies for these coolant types.
