As the leader in the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN), INL serves as the nation's bridge between research and commercial deployment of new nuclear fuel concepts. The capabilities at INL offer the unique ability for research and development of nuclear fuels from fuel design, development and fabrication through post irradiation analysis.

Roles and Responsibilities

The employee will take on an oversight role in matters relating to ceramic fuel fabrication. They will also serve as a principal investigator, conducting research, development, and analysis of nuclear fuels fabrication and performance, oversee programmatic work and contribute to national and international technical direction discussions. Additionally, they will work with and mentor junior staff to build a strong program capable of quickly maneuvering to adapt to commercial needs and national program direction. They will expand the nation's fuel research capability with oversight of procurement, installation, and utilization of fabrication equipment and characterization instruments.

Job performance includes: oversight of junior researchers and internship students, and coordination of work activities within program work packages and other projects of both internal and external laboratory researchers. Duties also include set up and performance of a variety of unique laboratory research studies to prove new principles and concepts. Applicant will oversee or directly collect, assimilate, and interpret laboratory data. Also responsible for planning research tasks and assessing and applying a wide range of research techniques to those tasks. Serves as a major or sole contributor to the generation of reports, publications, and proposals. Contributes to the generation of proposals and concepts submitted for external funding.
