Are you seeking a position with autonomy, significant responsibility, and a career broadening hands-on experience?? This position offers candidates an approximate 1-2 year assignment at the Knolls (NY) or Bettis (PA) Laboratory prior to transferring into NNL's Field Engineering Program for a 3-5 year assignment in a Shipyard. The Laboratory assignment is intended to give a candidate experience in NNL's electrical engineering community; this includes supporting design, development, deployment, analysis, troubleshooting, and testing of electrical systems associated with power electronics, laboratory test facilities, or site electrical infrastructure. Candidates would be expected to relocate to the Knolls or Bettis Laboratory for approximately two years before commencing training and subsequent relocation to a shipyard.
NNL maintains field offices in shipyards that conduct Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program work. RPCO engineers are the on-site representatives of NNL and component supply organizations in these shipyards. The selected candidate will provide engineering support and independent oversight of work associated with installation, reactor servicing, testing, and modification of reactor plant systems, components, and safety systems. RPCO engineers are engaged during nuclear work and operations and are expected to apply sound engineering principles and judgement to influence and provide feedback to on-site management and partner organizations.
Successful completion of a job-specific qualification is required for a field engineering position. Training associated with this qualification is expected to take approximately one year depending on previous experience and will be conducted at the Knolls or Bettis Laboratory. At the conclusion of qualification, the prospective RPCO engineer will be expected to demonstrate both an adequate understanding of requirements and the ability to function in a field location in a technical support and oversight capacity.
