R&D Electromagnetics Analyst (experienced)

Albuquerque, NM 87102

Are you passionate about challenging physics and engineering problems? Join a dynamic team that helps tackle some of the most challenging issues facing our nations security!

We are looking for excited and self-motivated candidates to work on electromagnetics applications including first-principles electromagnetics research and development, development of state-of-the-art computational electromagnetics codes, verification and validation of analytical and computational electromagnetic models, and analysis of complex, high-consequence nuclear deterrence systems.

Selected candidates will join an interdisciplinary team that analyzes a wide variety of electromagnetic problems. In this position, you will not only mature a deep technical understanding of electromagnetics, but also develop key skills in written/oral communication and multi-disciplinary collaboration. You will have opportunities to:

+ Engage with customers, analysts, and experimentalists to understand requirements, frame problems appropriately, design physical tests/diagnostics, choose and execute solution methods, performing data analysis, and communicate results both internal and external to the laboratory
+ Interact with a dynamic team of code developers to verify and validate performance and accuracy of state-of-the-art electromagnetic codes running on the NNSA's high performance computing platforms
+ Collaborate on basic research with interdisciplinary teams comprised of analysts across Sandia, other NNSA laboratories, and universities toward understanding of complex electromagnetic phenomena
+ Report on analysis results via internal briefings, internal reports, publications, and/or conference presentations

Join our team and achieve your dreams!


+ M.S. plus five years experience or Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or a related field
+ Ability to obtain and maintain a DOE Q Clearance


+ Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or a related field with a graduate focus in applied electromagnetics
+ Good interpersonal, communication, oral presentation, and documentation skills
+ High level of academic success in both undergraduate and graduate programs
+ Publications or presentations demonstrating experience with developing or using numerical simulations or theoretical analysis applied to electromagnetic phenomena
+ Experience in one or more of the following:

- Using commercial EM modeling tools (e.g. HFSS, CST Microwave Studio, COMSOL, FEKO, etc.), circuit modeling tools (Mentor Graphics, Cadence)
- Developing specialized numerical analysis tools using C++, FORTRAN, Matlab, Python, etc.
- Code development for modern computing architectures including instruction-level, data, and task parallelism (Cuda/ROCm, OpenMP, MPI, etc.)
- Running numerical simulations on high performance computing platforms (basic Linux commands, batch submission, shell scripting, etc.)
- Preparing geometrical models for numerical simulation, i.e. experience in geometrical defeaturing and meshing
- Data processing, post-processing, visualization

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 Sandia's Nuclear Deterrence mission.

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:

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status and any other protected class under state or federal law.
