Nuclear Engineer/Neutronics Analyst
Idaho National Laboratory
Idaho National Laboratory's (INL) Irradiation Experiment Neutronics Analysis group is seeking forward-thinking professionals interested in exploring a career as a Nuclear Engineer/Neutronics Analyst.
Our team works an on-site 9x80 schedule located at our Research Education Campus with every other Friday off!
The Nuclear Engineer/Neutronics Analyst will focus on neutronics and reactor physics calculations for irradiation experiment design and operation in the Transient Reactor Test Facility (TREAT), the Advanced Test Reactor (ATR), and other nuclear research and test reactors. The Nuclear Engineer/Neutronics Analyst should have a strong background in neutron transport with demonstrated experience using MCNP, SCALE/ORIGEN, MC21, or OPENMC to model the irradiation of nuclear fuels and materials under varied nuclear conditions. Practical experience using nuclear safety basis knowledge and documents is highly desired. Computer programming skills including python and dedication computing experience is also highly desired. In general, the Nuclear Engineer/Neutronics Analyst will apply physics and engineering theories and concepts to solve problems and perform detailed neutronics and reactor physics calculations and analyses of irradiation experiments for INL customers. The Nuclear Engineer/Neutronics Analyst is expected to be a key participant within an interdisciplinary project team and work effectively both alone and as a team member, be self-motivated and willing to take direction from team members and peers and maintain currency in relevant engineering and scientific literature, prepare internal reports and peer-reviewed publications, and present research results at conferences and meetings.
