R&D Electromagnetic Environmental Effects Analyst (Experienced)

Albuquerque, NM

The Weapon Electrical Modeling department is seeking an advanced\-degree level R&D Electrical Engineering candidate to conduct electromagnetic analyses in support of multiple customers on challenging technical issues associated with coupling into and response of systems, facility protection, and personnel hazards\. Knowledge of electromagnetic compatibility principles and their implementation in design and testing is advantageous\.

Typical projects consist of requirements consultation, system response, facility protection analysis, supporting system and component design decisions, and/or evaluating anomalous results due to electromagnetic environments\. Environments include CW and pulsed sources, including lightning and electrostatic discharge\. The candidate will be expected to engage with customers and other analysts or experimentalists to understand requirements, frame problems appropriately, choose and execute solution methods, and communicate results to customers\. The candidate is expected to provide as well as to accept critical peer reviews of analyses to ensure technically accurate results are provided to the customer\. At times, the candidate will provide briefings and/or training to customers\.

Key to the success of this position is an ability to balance both a deep technical understanding of the underpinning physics with clarity of communication and responsiveness\. On\-the\-job training will be provided to understand specific customer needs\. Minimal travel is required\.


+ An advanced degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics or a related field coupled with a background in electromagnetic compatibility plus two or more years of experience; or a doctorate in relevant discipline\.

+ Experience in publishing formal reports


+ Ph\.D\. in Electrical Engineering with a background in electromagnetic compatibility and shielding

+ High level of academic success in both undergraduate and graduate programs

+ Experience and ability to solve technical problems both analytically and computationally\.

+ Knowledge of lightning phenomenology and/or other electrical hazards and consequences such as from facility power systems and electrostatic discharge\.

+ Experience with industry EM modeling tools \(CST, COMSOL, ANSYS\), circuit modeling tools \(Mentor Graphics, Cadence\), and computational and numerical analysis tools \(Matlab, C\+\+, Python, etc\.\)\.

+ Working knowledge of or familiarity with:

- Lightning protection,

- Electro\-explosive device \(EED\) designs, hazards, and safety requirements,

- DOE and DoD orders, rules, and standards associated with critical operations and facilities

- Familiarity with MIL\-STD\-461 and associated laboratory tests

+ Customer focus \(ability to elicit customer needs, define problems and deliver results responsively\)

+ Good interpersonal, communication, and oral presentation skills \(i\.e, in order to engage customers to understand requirements, frame problems, choose and execute solution methods, and communicate results to customers; experience in providing as well as accepting critical peer reviews of analyses; experience providing briefings and/or training to customers\)

+ Excellent technical writing skills

Department Description:

We analyze complex electrical circuit behavior for a variety of performance, safety, sensitivity, aging, or environmental issues\. We work with multiple teams, mostly internal to Sandia, responsible for designing or maintaining electrical components or subsystems of high consequence systems\. Our staff is comprised mainly of Master's\-level and PhD\-level electrical engineers who use modeling and simulation to assure that electrical system designs and products meet stringent requirements that include temperature extremes and radiation environments\. In certain cases, we investigate why these systems deviate from expected behavior or requirements\. Our analysis capability includes the effects of electromagnetic environments, such as lightning, electrostatic discharge, and electromagnetic radiation \(EMR\), on the safety and performance of complex systems, including facilities\.

About Sandia:

Sandia National Laboratories is the nations 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 withamazingimpact 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 schedules, generous vacations,strongmedical and other benefits, competitive 401k, learning opportunities, relocation assistance and amenities aimed at creating a solid work/life balance\*

\*These benefits vary by job classification\.

Security Clearance:

Position requires a Department of Energy \(DOE\) granted Q\-level security clearance\.

Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre\-employment drug testing, and a pre\-employment background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education verifications\. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q\-level security clearance, which requires U\.S\. citizenship\.

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 the DOE, rendering the inability to perform the duties assigned and resulting in termination of employment\.
