Job Description:

Posting Duration:This 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:$98,300 - $190,100*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 Like:Are you looking for both a challenge and work-life balance? Join our team performing high consequence electrical modeling and simulation analysis activities in support of a range of design, development, analysis, and research customers. You will lead critical path analysis efforts and build research and development efforts to extend our current modeling and simulation capabilities.As electrical system analysts, we develop and exercise high-fidelity electrical engineering models to address a range of challenging technical issues associated with assuring performance and safety goals. We analyze complex electrical systems, utilizing computational simulations to characterize and predict all aspects of electrical system performance, including electrical interface compatibility, signal integrity, power distribution and integrity, analog and digital circuit behaviors, and electronics performance under extreme (e.g., temperature and radiation) environments. We are actively pursuing Research & Development (R) work to develop and apply novel modeling and simulation approaches, especially for multi-fidelity and cross-disciplinary applications.On any given day, you may contribute to and lead activities in one or more of the following:+ Board level electrical circuit analysis+ Develop and simulate analog circuit (SPICE), digital logic (VHDL/Verilog), or mixed analog-digital models+ Functional or behavioral system modeling (e.g., discrete event, finite state machine)+ Utilize and develop interfaces between various simulation and analysis tools to support mixed-fidelity (i.e., mixed level-of-abstraction) simulations. Examples might include analog (SPICE) simulations in conjunction with uncertainty analysis/optimization tools; or digital (VHDL/Verilog) simulations in conjunction with Matlab/Simulink+ Conduct simulations on state-of-the-art multi-node high performance computational platforms for the characterization of circuit performance, sensitivity analysis, and uncertainty quantification+ Develop a detailed understanding of customer requirements and verify electrical model (e.g., electrical device, component, or system) performance to those requirements+ Work closely with systems engineers, designers, and experimentalists to create and exercise models and analyze, validate, and report results+ For the interested applicant, opportunities exist to pursue 1) development of innovative electrical analysis techniques; 2) work with electromagnetic effects analysts; 3) work with device physics experts; 4) work with internal code developers for Sandia's SPICE solver (Xyce), and 5) work with experts across the department in the neuromorphic computing architecture work or the formal methods development teamsQualifications We Require:+ Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Electrical Engineering or a related STEM discipline or equivalent combination of education and experience+ Ability to obtain and maintain a U.S. DOE Q security clearanceQualifications We Desire:+ PhD in Electrical Engineering or related STEM discipline+ Interest in board level electrical modeling, simulation, and analysis+ Exposure to analog (SPICE), digital (VHDL/Verilog), functional, behavioral, discrete event, or other circuit simulation software+ Exposure to digital design and verification techniques+ Electrical circuit design (analog or digital) and/or modeling experience+ Experience with device modeling and calibration including knowledge of radiation effects+ Exposure to the application of statistics to simulation results and analysis+ Exposure to Uncertainty Quantification or experimental validation of computational models+ Experience using UNIX/Linux operating systems and/or High Performance Computing clusters+ Proficiency in a high-level programming language (e.g. C/C++, Matlab, Python)About Our Team:Our electrical analysis team is growing to meet an increased need for electrical modeling and simulation analysis and modeling capability development in support of Sandia National Laboratories' system development programs and other national security applications. We work closely with design engineers, other simulation code developer teams, applied mathematicians and statisticians, experimentalists, and analysts from peer electrical analysis organizations and other engineering and systems analysis disciplines. We directly support design, assessment, and analysis activities for both internal and external customers across Sandia's broader national security application space. We are actively engaged in R efforts to adapt and develop novel analysis techniques to address a range of complex and unique technical challenges. Our department (Digital Foundations & Mathematics) develops and maintains multiple technical capabilities. We develop and apply tools for the formal verification of digital systems, for electrical modeling and simulation analyses, and we develop computing accelerators for extreme environments. We are always interested in candidates with cross-disciplinary skillsets who can contribute to one or more of our programs. Our department consists mostly of researchers with backgrounds in computer science, analysis of programming languages and domain specific languages, high-performance computing, physics, electrical engineering, electrical circuit modeling & simulation & analysis, and neuromorphic computing architectures. We collaborate and team closely with organizations across Sandia and a broad spectrum of external partners.About Sandia:Sandia 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. Some of the main reasons we love our jobs:+ Challenging work with amazing impact that contributes to security, peace, and freedom worldwide+ Extraordinary co-workers+ Some of the best tools, equipment, and research facilities in the world+ Career advancement and enrichment opportunities+ Flexible work arrangements for many positions include 9/80 (work 80 hours every two weeks, with every other Friday off) and 4/10 (work 4 ten-hour days each week) compressed workweeks, part-time work, and telecommuting (a mix of onsite work and working from home)+ Generous vacations, strong medical and other benefits, competitive 401k, learning opportunities, relocation assistance and amenities aimed at creating a solid work/life balance*World-changing technologies.
