Typical responsibilities included writing technical proposals, obtaining funding for research and development activities and managing associated projects and tasks in the area of highly enriched uranium (HEU) and plutonium production detection, spent nuclear fuel (SNF) dissolution, nuclear fuel cycle separations, international safeguards, and nuclear nonproliferation, including nuclear forensics. Developing special nuclear material (SNM) detection and characterization technology, participating in multi-laboratory working groups, giving technical presentations, interfacing with clients, delegating responsibilities, supervising staff, and writing technical reports, journal articles, and procedures were all common activities. Additional activities included supporting the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Second Line of Defense Megaports Program (NA-25) as the training lead for Mexico, Panama, Colombia, and the Bahamas, and leading curriculum development efforts for spectroscopic portal monitor technologies.
Typical responsibilities included working as an individual contributor on several NNSA (NA-22) research and development projects, writing technical proposals, obtaining funding for research and development activities as the principal investigator, managing associated projects and being a technical task lead in the areas of HEU and plutonium production detection, nuclear fuel cycle separations, international safeguards, and nuclear nonproliferation. Developing SNM detection and characterization technology, giving technical presentations, interfacing with clients, and writing technical reports, journal articles, and procedures were all common activities.
Responsibilities included conducting research and development in the area of high-level actinide chemistry for advanced spent nuclear fuel reprocessing strategies and in the design and development of chemical sensors for detecting actinides and fission products in aqueous environments, with an emphasis on uranium and cesium. Research activities involved the use of the following actinide isotopes in hundreds of milligrams to kilogram quantities: 232-Th, 234-U, 235-U, 238-U, 237-Np, 239-Pu, 243-Am. Additional work involved the field testing of technology for decontaminating building substrates containing high levels of highly radioactive nuclides, specifically 60-Co, 90-Sr, and 137-Cs.
Responsibilities included sampling and analyzing on-site monitoring wells for regulated toxic metals using flame atomic absorption spectroscopy. Additional responsibilities included writing technical procedures and conducting hazard analyses for corporate ISO 9001 certification.
