Idaho National Lab will change the worlds advanced nuclear technology future! Join us innovate the future!
The Reactor Systems Design & Analysis (RSD&A) Division establishes new standards of emerging, innovative reactor design through contributing technical expertise to unique and specific advanced nuclear reactor design and deployment initiatives. Through collaborative efforts, RSD&A enables research, design and implementation of lab, partner and vendor initiatives. The work of RSD&A is positioned to establish the nation as a global leader in nuclear reactor technology.
The RSD&A Division is seeking candidates to join its team as a Reactor Core Design Engineer.
Works with and may lead work with a fast-paced team of nuclear reactor designers to set a new standard in advanced reactor design and innovation.
Leads, participates and contributes to various reactor power plant design activities.
Performs modeling and analysis to assess design options.
Makes preliminary selections and adaptations of technical alternatives.
Contributes to development of new capabilities within the division.
Plays a key role in scientific and technical products such as patents, software, journal papers, reports, and proceedings.
Participates in peer review work of others.
Interacts with internal and external partners to review and complete assignments/projects.
External partner contacts may include private industry and other national laboratories.
Takes initiative to participate in establishing organizational goals and direction and reviews plans.
Networks optimally with technical peer group.
May provide mentorship and development of junior technical staff.
Degree in nuclear engineering or a related field and relevant experience as follows:
BS plus 5-8 years experience
MS plus 3-6 years experience
PhD plus 2-4 years experience
Must have proven oral and written technical interpersonal skills.
Must be familiar with reactor designs under development by the advanced reactors industry.
Specific experience and skills in reactor physics, core design, neutron generation, and analysis methods.
Experience with stochastic or deterministic reactor analysis tools such as, but not limited to, MCNP, SCALE, or REBUS.

Due to the nature of work performed, preference will be given to applicants with US citizenship or green card holder status.
This is an excellent opportunity for technical specialists who want to move advanced nuclear reactor technology from the research and development phase into the design, construction, and deployment phase while reshaping and making huge impact on the future of nuclear reactor design, deployment, and operations!
The INL is a science and engineering based national laboratory dedicated to meeting the nation's environmental, energy, nuclear technology, and national security needs. The INL is one of nine multi-program national laboratories owned by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The laboratory is operated by Battelle Energy Alliance (BEA) under the direction of DOE. The INL stands out as a unique national and international resource. From its vantage at the confluence of basic science and applied engineering, its staff of scientists, engineers, and support personnel build on the potential and promise of the theoretical for the benefit of the real world. INL is home to one of the largest concentrations of technical professionals in the northern Rocky Mountain region and has some of the most advanced research programs in the world.
