Are your career goals to be a Nuclear Engineer? Are you looking for a challenging position at a company with excellent benefits, great work/life balance, and job stability? If so, you're in luck!
The Naval Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) is seeking a highly-motivated, self-driven, entry-level nuclear engineer for reactor core design development. The NNL Future Development Programs Department is focused on defining the design space and innovative technology to support future attack submarines and evaluating core technology costs versus performance capability trade-offs. An entry-level candidate will be expected to use their nuclear engineering education to assess the neutronic performance of new technology concepts in support of improving the performance of naval reactors. This project is currently in the pre-conceptual design phase, and the work may be performed with simple, first-principles-based scoping tools through detailed analyses utilizing the latest design codes. This phase will be followed by a formal core design effort requiring model development and qualification. This project requires frequent and effective communication with other core design, materials performance, core manufacturing, and reactor plant development groups. This position provides opportunities to influence technology development for performance gains and cost reductions. Interested applicants must excel at working in a highly collaborative digital environment that spans multiple sites and be willing to actively improve efficiency in this environment. The successful candidate will be expected to identify opportunities to apply their expertise and then decisively act to fully evaluate those opportunities.
