Are you ready to take your college experience and turn it into real-world, global impact? Our world-class engineering team is growing and looking for talent to aid in our mission of maintaining reactor safety excellence for the United States Navy. Our challenging work not only directly supports the safety of the sailors serving to protect our country, but also serves a vital role in enabling access to ports worldwide. If you demand excellence and want to challenge your abilities in a complex, collaborative work environment to make a tangible difference in the world then we want you on our team.
What Do We Do?
The Plant Analysis team is responsible for state-of-the-art thermal-hydraulic analysis of Naval nuclear reactor plants in the highly visible field of reactor safety. We support multiple Naval platforms giving our team broad exposure and opportunity to make fleet-wide impacts. Being part of this team means being an integral member of the analysis life cycle which opens opportunities in a wide range of functions including:
- Building models of large, complex thermal-hydraulic systems
- Developing and qualifying modeling techniques using real test data
- Investigating and optimizing performance through simulation analysis
- Communicating what you learned, written and verbally, to make a real-world impact
By joining our team, you not only challenge yourself and advance in our wide technical functions, but also grow your skills as an integrator – essential to pulling our teams together and delivering our work. In our technical functions, you will build upon what you learned in college to develop into a technical expert trusted to make sound engineering judgements. As an integrator, you will be my partner ensuring that teams are healthy, work is appropriately prioritized, issues are surfaced, and good ideas are pursued. It won’t happen overnight – so, we’re looking for someone with the raw talent who is willing to grow into this role.
Why This Could be the Job for You?
We are looking for that unique combination of engineering prowess and the leadership skills to make sure the job gets done and done right. The ideal candidate:
- Enjoys jumping from solving challenging technical problems to proposing schedule and priority decisions,
- Achieved a track-record of technical accomplishments,
- Demonstrated success from teaming experiences and adversity,
- Is driven by a strong desire to continuously learn and grow.
The position is a growth role, so we do not expect the ideal candidate to be proficient in solving our most challenging problems or running multiple projects upon hire. The ideal candidate has the talent and drive to grow into this challenging role.
Required Skills *
- BS degree in engineering or Bachelor’s degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university required.
- BS degree in engineering or Bachelor’s degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university and a minimum of two years of relevant experience; or
- MS degree in engineering or Master’s degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university and a minimum of one year of relevant experience; or
- Attention to Detail: Nuclear safety requires rigorous precision. We need someone who will make sure the answer is right and nothing is missed in our projects.
- Curiosity: Understanding comes from thorough analysis. We need intellectual curiosity so that you’re driven to want to know the “whys” behind simulation results and team behaviors.
- Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, and Fluid Flow: This is the core of our technical field. We need you to have strength and interest in all things thermal-hydraulic to deliver excellent results.
- Communication: Our product is information supporting the safety of our reactor plants and you will be tasked with organizing teams. We need you to be able to articulate our efforts to those with and without similar backgrounds to maximize our impact.
- Desire to Learn: To become an expert you need to learn through hard work and open feedback. Our team is ready to invest in you if you’re ready to invest in us.
- Ownership and Self-Accountability: You’re going to be given ownership of part of our work product. Though the team will be here to help, your success depends on your ownership and self-management.
- Experience organizing or managing teams and/or projects
- Experience with thermal-hydraulic system simulation analyses (e.g. RELAP, TRACE, etc.)
- Experience with Loss-of-Coolant Accident analyses
