EqualEmployment Opportunity

IdahoNational Laboratory (INL) is an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) employer. It is the policy of INL to provide equal employment opportunities to allqualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexualorientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran ordisabled status, or genetic information.

Womenand People of Color are strongly encouraged to apply.

This position is open for a junior level Materials Scientist/Materials Engineer/Metallurgist. INL has traditionally excelled in the research, development and characterization of materials that support multiple types of advanced energy generation, storage, efficiency and security. Currently the Materials Science and Engineering Department at INL is seeking an entry level candidate, at Ph.D. level, in the area of general alloy processing with expertise in thermomechanical processing (TMP), e.g., rolling, forging, heat treatment, etc., of nickel and titanium alloys.

You will be expected to extrapolate your past work on nickel and titanium alloys to other nickel and titanium alloys as well as to other alloy systems. The major focus of the position is to optimize thermomechanical processing of commercial as well as emerging alloys for high strain-rate applications. You should also be motivated to apply your TMP knowledge to other alloy systems, especially Fe-based, Ni-based, high entropy alloys, etc., in existing projects focused on other applications in extreme environments such as high temperature, high stress, high radiation environments and aggressive environments (e.g. molten salts, supercritical fluids and other corrosive atmospheres.

You will be expected to plan and carry out R&D under the direction of an INL mentor. You will prepare reports and manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed journals as well as make presentations. Depending on experience level, you will be expect to provide input to proposals arising out of your work or play a leadership role in developing the proposal. In addition to traditional TMP methods, experience in the area of advanced manufacturing, especially utilizing nickel and titanium alloys, is also highly desirable. Candidates exhibiting the ability to integrate and simulations into development of materials and advanced materials processing approaches will merit special consideration for this position.

Specific responsibilities include:

1) Serving as a major or sole contributor to the generation of reports, publications, and proposals and contribution or leadership to the generation of additional proposals and concepts submitted for external funding.

2) Conducting and documenting work at an appropriate quality level, including collection and interpretation of laboratory data, planning of research tasks, as well as assessing and applying a wide range of research techniques to those tasks.

3) Representing the MS&E Department and INL with sponsors and peers through programmatic and technical presentations.

Doctorate in Materials Science and Engineering or related field.

Ability to obtain and maintain Q-Level Clearance.
