Location: Idaho Falls
Posted on: September 14, 2019

Job Description:

Org: Nuclear Materials
Grade: 210/220
Work Location: Idaho Falls, ID (9x80 Schedule)

The Nuclear Materials department within Idaho National Lab's Nuclear Science & Technology directorate is seeking technical professionals to join its high performing team In Nuclear Materials Investigators.

Nuclear Materials Investigators contribute towards the successful deployment of new fuel design, development, and fabrication by skilled application of theories, principles, and concepts to materials science challenges for nuclear fuels and materials. Having knowledge of nuclear materials, fuel cladding systems (including functional coatings, metallic fuels, ceramic fuels), and relevant characterization methods, especially methods used in post irradiation microstructural examinations (transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction) is required.

Demonstrated experience in developing advanced fabrication technologies and material synthesis through developing fuel systems is a plus. Familiarity or experience with analyzing and modeling experimental results is required as these positions require interfacing with developers of fuel performance and advanced manufacturing model developers. It is expected that the investigators will be able to conduct analyses (thermodynamic, structural, fuel performance, manufacturing) for current and novel fuel systems to aid the design of advanced fuel systems or predict fuel performance.

An understanding of the performance issues of fuels and materials under extreme environments are also expected in these roles. Experience in the planning, design, and/or post irradiation examination of fuels and materials experiments is desirable. Investigators will have excellent communications skills, both verbal and written and will provide guidance and mentoring to technicians, student interns and post-doctoral appointees as appropriate. The publishing of results in internal reports and journal publications is important.

If you have the technical skills, education, and experience for this position, we strongly encourage you to apply today for the opportunity to join our awesome team of highly skilled professionals.
