Posting DurationThis posting will be open for application submissions for a minimum of seven (7) calendar days, including the 'posting date'. Sandia reserves the right to extend the posting date at any time.Salary Range$99,700 $196,100*Salary range is estimated, and actual salary will be determined after consideration of the selected candidate's experience and qualifications, and application of any approved geographic salary differential.What Your Job Will Be LikeThe Radiation Effects Experimentation Department is seeking a dynamic scientist to conduct innovative research and analysis of radiation induced effects in materials, electronics, and surrogate test articles! This position will concentrate on radiation effects physics, modeling, and the design of radiation hardened electronic systems. Our experiments may range from fundamental investigations into radiation effects in groundbreaking technologies to the response of components at higher levels of product integration to meet technical and programmatic objectives for a variety of customers. You may also be responsible for leading and conducting radiation qualification tests and analyses associated with Sandia's national security mission. You will work in a collaborative environment with a diverse team and have access to some of the world's most powerful pulsed radiation generating facilities with state-of-the art diagnostics and equipment!On any given day, you may be called on to:Create innovative and complex solutions for the future through discovery physics and the development of new capabilities such as qualification methodologies, experimental platforms, and environmental diagnostics.Propose, design, and execute experiments at state-of-the-art radiation test facilities such as HERMES, Saturn, Z, ACRR, NIF, WSMR FBR, IBL, and others.Team with other specialists to analyze results and present new insights, observations, or qualification evidence.Summarize findings in internal reports and as appropriate, publish results in journal articles and present at conferences.Some travel will be required for test campaigns, project meetings, and conferences.Join our team and achieve your dreams!Qualifications We RequirePhD degree in Electrical or Electronics Engineering, Physics, Nuclear Engineering or a related fieldA strong record of scientific and/or technical achievements through publication, as evidenced by peer-reviewed journals and external presentations at appropriate scientific conferencesAbility to obtain and maintain a DOE Q clearanceQualifications We DesireFamiliarity with radiation producing facilities within and outside of Sandia and conducting experiments at those facilities (e.G., X-ray, gamma-ray, neutron, and ion)Knowledge of radiation effects on electronicsExperience developing research ideas, establishing collaborations, organizing research teams, and/or reporting progressExperience leading or working with interdisciplinary teamsAbout Our TeamThe main purpose of the Radiation Effects Experimentation Department is to assure and verify the capability of the nation's nuclear stockpile to survive and operate through radiation and electromagnetic environments. These activities range from fundamental radiation effects research to qualifying the performance of electronic piece parts, subsystems, and systems to natural space-based and/or man-made radiation environments (e.G., environment produced by nuclear detonations). We accomplish our mission by performing basic and applied radiation effects research on materials and electronics using state-of-the-art photon, ion, neutron, electron, and laser sources located at Sandia National Laboratories and other laboratories throughout the United States. We also develop critical radiation, electrical, and plasma diagnostics to characterize our test environments as well as perform simulations to investigate the radiation response of electronics and other test objects. An important activity in the Department is the design, measurement, analysis, and simulation of response data on surrogate test articles for the purpose of validating Advanced Scientific Computing (ASC) computer codes that are (or will be) used to qualify future weapon and satellite electronic systems to various pulsed radiation environments and effects. Department personnel also provide guidance to electronic designers to assure proper design techniques related to mitigating the deleterious effects of radiation and qualification assessments of nuclear weapon hardware to each of Sandia's production groups. This team is part of the Radiation, Electrical and High Energy Density (REHEDS) Research Foundation at Sandia.About SandiaSandia National Laboratories is the nation's premier science and engineering lab for national security and technology innovation, with teams of specialists focused on cutting-edge work in a broad array of areas.
