Entry Level Nuclear Engineer

 West Mifflin, PA

The Naval Nuclear Laboratory has an entry level nuclear engineering position in the Thermal and Nuclear Design unit within the Surface Ship & Prototype Programs department! The Thermal and Nuclear Design unit broadly supports all aspects of the nuclear design and follow of the A1B reactor in the FORD class of aircraft carriers along with supporting A1B core manufacturing and updates to the A1B Reactor System Performance Analysis. Engineers within the unit interface with a large number of stakeholders within the Program, such as Ship's Force, NAVSEA 08, and Newport News Shipbuilding. They also interact regularly with the other disciplines within reactor engineering (thermal/hydraulic and reactor protection), as well as mechanical and fluid systems, core manufacturing, reactor technology, shipboard IT, and I&C systems. The successful candidate will also have an exciting chance to participate in fleet physics testing of the FORD class.
