The Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) operates the High Flux Isotope Reactor
(HFIR), the United States' highest flux reactor based neutron source, and the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), the world's
most intense pulsed accelerator based neutron source. Together these facilities operate 30 instruments for neutron scattering
research, each year carrying out in excess of 1,000 experiments in the physical, chemical, materials, biological and medical
sciences. HFIR also provides unique facilities for isotope production and neutron irradiation. To learn more about Neutron
Sciences at ORNL go to: http://neutrons.ornl.gov.

The Nuclear Safety and Experiment Analysis (NSEA) Group within the Research Reactors Division (RRD), Neutron Sciences
Directorate (NScD), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), seeks early to mid-career applicants for an applied Research
and Development (R&D) staff position as a nuclear safety analyst to support the HFIR. In this role, you will be a member of
the NSEA Group within RRD providing analytical support to the safe reliable operation of the HFIR. You will also support the
Nuclear Materials, Fuel, and Experiment teams within RRD by providing analytical support for proposed experiments,
material irradiations, and the production of isotopes.

Major Duties/Responsibilities
--Preparation and maintenance of the HFIR Safety Analysis Report (SAR), HFIR Technical Safety Requirements (TSRs), and
the HFIR Cold Neutron Source Documented Safety Analysis (CS DSA).
--Preparation and maintenance of the HFIR safety basis documents, in addition to the SAR, CS DSA and TSRs, such as the
HFIR Safety Related Equipment List (SREL), and the HFIR Hazards Analysis.
--Assuring technical compliance with 10 CFR Part 830 Subparts A and B, affecting reactor safety, through implementation of
ORNL Standards Based Management System (SBMS) and RRD procedures.

their respective functions, disciplines and responsibilities.
--Application of the unreviewed safety question (USQ) process per ORNL SBMS and RRD procedure.
--Serve as safety analyst for primary coolant high pressure system, primary coolant cleanup system, primary pressurization
system, exhaust system(s), and/or control rod drive system,
--Serve as alternate safety analyst for assigned systems, primarily associated with water chemistry/treatment, secondary
coolant, fire protection, exhaust, steam/air supply, and facility structure.
--Provides guidance to engineering, maintenance, and operations on SREL and TSR-related concerns.
--Adherance to the rules and regulations that govern the operation of a DOE nuclear facility such as HFIR.
--Formulates/postulates research and/or testing needed to validate safety analysis assumptions or controls.

Qualifications Required
--B.S. or higher degree in nuclear, mechanical, chemical, aerospace or similar engineering discipline.
--Minimum of 4 years' experience in engineering or safety analysis, and at least 1 year of nuclear facility experience.
--Previously or currently qualified to perform USQ evaluations (or similar process for nuclear power plants).
--Be organized, detail-oriented and sensitized to a nuclear safety culture.
--Possess excellent written and verbal communication skills and experience working in a team environment, with
collaboration at all levels, disciplines, and diverse cultural backgrounds both inside and outside the organization.
--The candidate must show a record of customer-oriented, collaborative work ethic.

ORNL any drug-related arrest or conviction or receipt of a positive drug test result.

Preferred Qualifications
--Advanced degree in a related field.
--Experience performing safety analysis at a DOE reactor nuclear facility.

This position will remain open for a minimum of 5 days after which it will close when a qualified candidate is identified and/or

We accept Word(.doc, .docx), Excel(.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint(.ppt, .pptx), Adobe(.pdf), Rich Text Format(.rtf), HTML(.htm,
