Are you passionate about your work and dream of utilizing state-of-the-art facilities to explore solutions? Want to join a dynamic team that helps solve some of the most complicated issues facing our nations security?

A systems engineer is needed to drive Nuclear Safety development and qualification. As the Nuclear Safety lead, you will guide the safety architecture through final development and qualification, while interacting with multiple partners to ensure the system performs as intended throughout the weapon lifetime. You will apply your expertise in a fast-paced and often ambiguous design environment, while leading teams to generate the technical basis to assure the system is safe in normal and unintended environments.

On any given day, you may be called on to:

+ Work regularly with the systems team and the Nuclear Safety core team
+ Collaborate with other key partners (e.g. Kansas City NSC, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Pantex).
+ System design and function of safety architecture and the critical components that comprise the safety subsystems.

Department Description:

The Weapon Surety Engineering II Department is a customer-focused organization that provides engineering and system analysis expertise to ensure a safe deterrent throughout the entire weapon lifecycle. Engineers develop a deep knowledge in both component and system function to support rigorous evaluation and mitigation of potential failure modes. We operate across multiple engineering disciplines (mechanical, electrical, computer, materials and systems engineering) with opportunities to develop cross-disciplinary capability. The team supports a variety of stockpile systems and is part of the product teams during development, design and production, as well as advanced concept and exploratory efforts. Our engineers use their extensive component and system knowledge, as well as experimental data and modeling, to ensure products function as intended with assured safety. Members of our department learn the function of multiple components, how those components integrate within the system and apply surety principles and processes to ensure a safe, secure, reliable, and effective U.S. nuclear deterrent.
