Department Description:

Department 1353 is a multidisciplinary research and development group supporting NNSA Defense and Special Partnership Project (SPP) Programs. Our capabilities include experimental electromagnetics, the design and manufacturing of advanced power electronic, high voltage sciences, pulsed power, and the development and analysis of advanced materials and components. Department 1353 employs a comprehensive research approach that includes analysis, simulation, and hardware verification. Our customers include the DOE, NNSA, DOD and industry in applications of experimental electrical sciences for stockpile stewardship, homeland defense, and commercial applications. The department operates a number of large scale Electromagnetic (EM) and Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) facilities and is responsible for testing and analysis of components and systems in EM (EMP) environments. The department also operates smaller facilities and test-beds to conduct research on high voltage breakdown, power electronics, and pulsed power component development. We frequently collaborate with other Sandia organizations including Integrated Military Systems, Radiation Sciences, Material Sciences, and Energy. Our team has been extremely successful with attracting and conducting advanced research. We have won five Grand Challenge LDRDs in the past eight years. Sandia typically only awards one or two Grand Challenges per year.

Security Clearance:

Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment need to be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.

Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.

EEO Statement:
