Pièces jointes:                       ATT6232783.txt


The Neutron Sciences Directorate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) invites applications for two Cryogenics Systems Engineers.  With the United States' highest flux reactor-based neutron source for condensed matter research (the High Flux Isotope Reactor) and the world's most intense pulsed, accelerator-based neutron source (the Spallation Neutron Source), ORNL is becoming the world's foremost center for neutron science.  Research at these facilities encompasses the physical, chemical, materials, biological, and medical sciences and will provide opportunities for up to 2000 researchers each year from industry, research facilities, and universities all over the world.  To learn more about Neutron Sciences at ORNL go to:


Major Duties/Responsibilities:

•             Participates in design, construction, and operation of SNS cryogenic systems.

•             Operates the cryogenic facilities in support of the baseline reliability and safety objectives of the SNS.

•             Ensures efficient, reliable, and optimal operations of large thermal process facilities and complex systems operations in compliance with safety regulations and safe practices.

•             Performs cryogenic measurements and evaluates data to correct, improve, and/or optimize performance of cryogenic systems.

•             Documents and implements the developed systems' plans within budget and schedule.

•             May direct engineering team to complete tasks or projects.

•             Maintains and improves operability of accelerator by monitoring and evaluating performance, including failures and developing and implementing maintenance, improvement, and upgrade strategies and procedures.

•             Participates in maintaining 24/7 operation of the cryosystems, requiring flexibility in working hours to overcome unforeseen breakdowns.

•             Represents and presents group activities to the Division, Directorate, and independent and DOE review groups, and professional organizations.

•             Ensures compliance with federal, state, and local environment, safety, health, and quality requirements.

•             Maintains a strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of values and ethics.


Qualifications Required:

Successful candidate will have a BS or MS degree in engineering, or a related technical field, with two to five years of applicable technical experience in design, construction, and operation of cryogenic systems, or an equivalent combination of education and experience.  Demonstrated knowledge and an established track record of proven performance of cryogenic equipment and cryogenic systems required.  Familiarity with accelerator systems and/or complex systems facility operations desired.  Excellent communications skills required. Knowledge of related safety issues, regulations, and safe practices required.
