Department Description:

The Electromagnetic Theory & Simulation department develops analytical and numerical electromagnetic models, develops state-of-the-art computational electromagnetic codes, and conducts advanced electromagnetic analyses for use across a broad spectrum of electromagnetic environments. Computational modeling is performed using Sandia-developed simulation tools on world class high-performance computing clusters and custom-made simulation servers. Capabilities developed in the Electromagnetic Theory & Simulation department support long-term research in electromagnetics, and also enable the near-term delivery of toolsets and high-fidelity analysis that can be used for addressing the wide array of Sandia mission needs. For example, high-fidelity computational simulation and analysis are provided to evaluate the electrical performance of complex systems (including subsystems and components) when subjected to various electromagnetic environments, including lightning, electromagnetic pulse (EMP), electromagnetic radiation (EMR), and electrostatic discharge (ESD), toward Sandias Nuclear Deterrence mission.

*These benefits vary by job classification.

Security Clearance:

This position does not currently require a Department of Energy (DOE) security clearance.

Sandia will conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Furthermore, employees in New Mexico need to pass a U.S. Air Force background screen for access to Kirtland Air Force Base. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause access to be denied or terminated, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.

If hired without a clearance and it subsequently becomes necessary to obtain and maintain one for the position, or you bid on positions that require a clearance, a pre-processing background review may be conducted prior to a required federal background investigation. Applicants for a DOE security clearance need to be U.S. citizens. 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.

EEO Statement:

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
