The Materials and Fuels Complex (MFC) at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is seeking applicants who will specialize in Nuclear Research Facility System Engineering in support of nuclear research & development activities. Senior level candidates are being sought in the following engineering disciplines Mechanical, Nuclear, Chemical, Electrical, and Instrumentation & Controls engineering. The positions will be organized within the Facility and Systems Engineering Department within the Engineering Division.
INL is recognized as the lead national laboratory for DOE-NE, providing much of the nuclear research, development, and demonstration capability needed to move nuclear innovation forward to deployment. MFC hosts a unique combination of personnel, facilities and infrastructure and offers the ability to perform research and development of nuclear fuels from fuel design, development, and fabrication through post irradiation analysis.
The successful candidate will be the assigned System Engineer for various systems and activities at MFC. System Engineers apply knowledge, practices, and technique to develop designs for new or modified facilities systems, processes, specialized equipment and/or utilities through design and implementation phases. In this role a senior level engineer will work independently applying engineering knowledge, practice, and techniques in support of assigned systems and components and be responsible to ensure continued operational readiness of assigned systems and equipment. Technical understanding of system design requirements, system performance criteria, physical configuration, operation, testing, and maintenance of assigned systems and components is key.
The senior level engineer will perform the following functions independently:
Perform System Engineering role for modifications to assigned systems and development of new system capabilities
Perform Design Engineer role for modifications
Perform Task Lead role for modifications
Configuration Management of assigned systems
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.
