Location: Livermore
Posted on: September 13, 2020

Job Description:

Job Code:  Science & Engineering MTS 2 (SES.2) / Science & Engineering MTS 3 (SES.3)

Join us and make YOUR mark on the World!

Come join Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) where we apply science and technology to make the world a safer place; now one of 2020 Best Places to Work by Glassdoor!

We have multiple openings for physicists to do theory and target design in support of the Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) Program. You will become part of the team working on the grand-challenge of achieving thermonuclear ignition on the National Ignition Facility (NIF). This research requires working closely with individuals from other disciplines, such as laser experimentalists, laser scientists, target fabrication specialists and NIF Project scientists and engineers, as well as other target designers and theorists. These positions are in the Design Physics Division within the Weapons and Complex Integration (WCI) Principal Directorate.

This position will be filled at either the SES.2 or SES.3 level depending on your qualifications. Additional job responsibilities (outlined below) will be assigned if you are selected at the higher level.

Essential Duties

- Plan, analyze and interpret NIF laser experiments in support of the effort to achieve ignition on NIF principally with large computer codes, but also with analytic modeling.

- Perform computational and theoretical analyses that extrapolate our current understanding of ignition related physics to NIF and beyond.

- Successfully work as part of an interdisciplinary team on ICF project activities.

- Present research results in scientific meetings, peer reviews, and publications. Responsibilities may also include interacting with external stakeholders, both at NNSA and across the broader interagency, via offsite assignments.

- Perform other duties as assigned.

In Addition at the SES.3 Level

- Independently develop and/or provide in depth analysis of NIF laser experiments in support of the effort to achieve ignition on NIF principally with large computer codes, but also with analytic modeling where complex problems may not be well defined.

- Work as technical expert on multidisciplinary team.

Qualifications

- PhD in physics or related field, or the equivalent combination of education and related experience.

- Comprehensive knowledge of plasma physics, hydrodynamics, or astrophysics.

- Experience in computational modeling of complex systems.

- Experience developing creative solutions to complex problems.

- Demonstrated ability to deliver a high quality, polished product in a timely manner.

- Proficient written and verbal communication skills as demonstrated by a record of publications, invited papers, or teaching experience.

- Demonstrated ability to interact effectively in an interdisciplinary team of scientists as well as independently.

In Addition at the SES.3 Level

- Advanced knowledge of physics, plasma physics, hydrodynamics, or astrophysics or a related field.

- Experience leading and mentoring as part of a multidisciplinary team.

- Demonstrated record of completing and/or leading top quality research in relevant areas of physics and engineering.

Desired Qualifications

- Experience with the use of large two and three-dimensional computer codes.

Pre-Placement Medical Exam:  A job related pre-placement medical examination may be required.

Pre-Employment Drug Test: External applicant(s) selected for this position will be required to pass a post-offer, pre-employment drug test. This includes testing for use of marijuana as Federal Law applies to us as a Federal Contractor.

Security Clearance:  This position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q-level clearance.

If you are selected, we will initiate a Federal background investigation to determine if you meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information or matter. In addition, all L or Q cleared employees are subject to random drug testing. Q-level clearance requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold multiple citizenships (U.S. and another country), you may be required to renounce your non-U.S. citizenship before a DOE L or Q clearance will be processed/granted.

Note:  This listing has multiple openings; these are Career Indefinite positions. Lab employees and external candidates may be considered for these positions.
