The Nuclear Science and Engineering Division is seeking a highly motivated Nuclear Engineer to develop computational strategies and computer codes to model the physics and engineering of advanced nuclear reactors; analyze the multi-physics aspects of nuclear fission reactors including neutronics, thermal-hydraulics, structural mechanics, and fuel behavior. Activities may involve reactor analysis including transient analysis, engineered system evaluation, and code verification and validation. The candidate is expected to produce papers and reports describing results of development work, analyses, and investigations.

The applicant will be expected to have:

  • Knowledge of nuclear engineering principles, theories, and practices for the design and analysis of reactor systems.
  • Knowledge of heat transfer and fluid dynamics for nuclear system applications and reactor safety analyses.
  • Knowledge of computation methods and numerical solvers for engineering applications.
  • Knowledge of modern software development practices and programming techniques.
  • Skill in the conception, design, and evaluation of innovative approaches and solutions to quantitative problems.
  • Skills in the use of computers and in the analysis of computational results, in the clear and effective documentation and communication of results, and in interaction with co-workers and support personnel is required.
  • Ability to model Argonne’s Core Values: Impact, Safety, Respect, Integrity, and Teamwork.

Desirables:

  • Knowledge of reactor transient and accident analysis methods and experience in using system codes (e.g. RELAP5, TRACE, SAM, or SAS4A/SASSYS-1).
  • Knowledge about the Multiphysics Object-Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE) framework.
  • Experience in computational modeling of advanced (non-light water) reactor designs.

The required levels of knowledge and skills are typically achieved through formal training in nuclear engineering or physics at the doctorate level and 0+years of experience.

This position description documents the general nature and level of work but is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all activities, duties and responsibilities required of job incumbent. Consequently, job incumbent may be required to perform other duties as assigned.
