Nuclear Facility CMMS Specialist

ORNL is investing in our nuclear facilities to ensure the directorate goals are met and strategies are executed. To support and protect our assets we are hiring a Nuclear Facility CMMS Specialist.  This role will drive asset management process improvement, evaluate, and monitor data quality, assist with compliance audits, develop, and publish section key performance indicators (KPI’s), provide CMMS training oversight, and populate all master data with correct hierarchical structure and taxonomy.  A successful candidate in this technical role will utilize specialized knowledge in nuclear facilities, CMMS functions, data management, and report generation.

Group Leader - Radiochemical Engineering Development Center Laboratory Chemical Operations

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking a senior technical leader for our world class radioisotope production program. Supporting the largest radioisotope production and research portfolio within the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science for Isotope R&D and Production, this position will grant you the opportunity to work with rare nuclear materials and ensure the safe and effective execution of nuclear materials processing within nuclear and radiological facilities in the Melton Valley area of the ORNL campus.

This position as the leader of the Radiochemical Engineering Development Center (REDC) Laboratory Chemical Operations Group resides within the newly formed Isotope Processing and Manufacturing Division (IPMD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The IPMD is focused on the reliable delivery of radioisotope products to exacting quality standards. This work is performed within the unique facilities at ORNL, including the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), and several radiological and nuclear facilities throughout the ORNL campus containing shielded hot cells and gloveboxes. The primary isotope manufactured within the REDC Laboratory Chemical Operations group is the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Ac-225, an alpha emitting isotope deployed in clinical trials for treatment of cancer. Other isotopes processed in the group include heavy actinides Bk/Es/Fm, used for research in nuclear physics and heavy element chemistry, and a variety of high purity actinides which are purified and dispensed from legacy sources.

Section Head - Radioisotope Production Engineering and Analysis

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking a distinguished scientist and technical leader for our world class radioisotope production program. Supporting the largest radioisotope production and research portfolio within the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science for Isotope R&D and Production, as well as extensive isotope production programs for the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration, this position will grant you the opportunity to work with rare nuclear materials, and the unique facilities at ORNL, including the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) and the Radiochemical Engineering Development Center (REDC), as you guide the strategic growth of our isotope production portfolio and materials handling infrastructure.

Junior Faculty in Experimental Nuclear Chemistry or Radiochemistry

The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) at Michigan State University (MSU) is seeking outstanding candidates for a junior faculty position in experimental nuclear chemistry or radiochemistry.

The successful candidate is expected to establish and lead a sponsored, world-class research program at FRIB, be an effective instructor and mentor to a diverse cohort of students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, play a leadership role in the nuclear science community, and engage in institutional and public service. We are especially interested in scientists with a strong record of research accomplishments related to isotope production and harvesting techniques complementary to existing FRIB programs.

Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in chemistry, physics, engineering, or a related field at the time of appointment and have at least two years of postdoctoral experience in experimental nuclear chemistry, radiochemistry, or another closely related field. Candidates must exhibit strong promise for excellence in research, teaching, and a commitment to diversity. Candidates must also have the ability to work with export-controlled technologies.
