RESPONSIBILITIES

This position is open for an experienced Materials Scientist/Materials Engineer/Metallurgist experienced in Field Assisted Sintering Systems. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) seeks to bolster its current expertise in the area of field assisted sintering or SPS as part of the INLs advanced manufacturing activities. The position will require R&D in the areas of field assisted joining, field assisted sintering and respective coupling to other advanced manufacturing activities, including automation and high temperature mechanical processing of materials produced by these methods.

INL has traditionally excelled in the research, development and characterization of materials that support multiple types of advanced energy generation, storage, efficiency and security. Consequently, this position seeks a candidate with a strong background in solidification and physical metallurgy, ceramics processing and, field assisted sintering in general. The candidate will contribute through application of their established knowledge in the development of automated processing solutions for complex net-shape, high-throughput, large-scale, field assisted sintering, joining and high temperature mechanical and chemical processing. You are expected to assist in developing R&D programs as well as support existing programs in the areas of powder processing, feedstock control, and advanced field assisted sintering. The application of field assisted joining including dissimilar metal joints, and processing of 3D metal, ceramic and composite additively manufactured parts (e.g. from powder bed, directed energy deposition, etc.) will be engaged. The end applications are typically focused on components for service in harsh environments (e.g., extremes of temperature, pressure, high strain rate applications, etc.) as found in power generation (e.g., nuclear, fossil fuel, solar, etc.), space / aerospace, and protection applications such as ballistic armor and blast protection associated with National Homeland Security. Complimentary expertise is also desired in materials as well as manufacturing process development for high-strength, lightweight and/or creep/oxidation-resistant metal alloys. An ability to integrate modeling and simulations into development of systems, processes and automation for materials and advanced materials processing approaches is also an important skill for this position.

You will be responsible for research and development in the areas outlined above. As a principal investigator, you will be responsible for contributing to writing proposals and obtaining funding from appropriate private and public organizations to execute work in the areas of interest discussed above. Experience in leading proposal writing efforts to secure funding will be considered a plus. As a principal investigator, you will also be expected to independently guide others in performing a variety of unique laboratory research studies to prove new principles and concepts related to advanced materials development. You must also obtain and retain a security clearance at the Q level.

The ability to grow into a leadership role in developing new programs associated with advanced materials development and assessment in support of grand ideas at the departmental, directorate and lab levels is a prerequisite for this position. This role also requires the ability to assist the leadership team in executing the strategic plan of the organization.

Other responsibilities include:
1) Providing input to departmental business plans and performance of duties of a line management Principal Investigator for assigned work activities.
2) Assisting in, and where appropriate, taking the lead in establishing beneficial collaborative relationship with customers, technical representatives and field operations personnel seeking application based advance materials development and deployment.
3) Serving as a technical resource to others, including mentorship and provision of oversight to junior level scientists
4) Serving as a major or sole contributor to the generation of reports, publications, and proposals and contribution to the generation of additional proposals and concepts submitted for external funding.
5) Conducting and documenting work at an appropriate quality level, including collection and interpretation of laboratory data, planning of research tasks, as well as assessing and applying a wide range of research techniques to those tasks.
6) Representing the MS&E Department and INL with sponsors and peers through programmatic and technical presentations. Engage in external technical leadership associated with relevant technical conferences or national/international in areas related to main mission as described above.
