Rockville, Maryland, United States

Duties

As an Electrical Engineer, you will plan, organize, direct, coordinate, and conduct assigned research efforts associated with the electrical components and systems. The purpose of such research is to determine the effectiveness, and improve as necessary, the NRC licensing requirements and codes and standards for safety-related electrical equipment in commercial nuclear power plants. You will develop corresponding regulatory guides, codes and standards to implement research findings.

Duties include, but are not limited to:

1. Conducts analytical research and provides management and technical direction for the assigned research and development program activities related to electrical equipment in commercial nuclear power plants.

2. Develops objectives and plans for programs on electrical equipment under conditions arising from normal operations and postulated accidents in commercial nuclear power plants.

3. Reviews and evaluates plans and proposals submitted by laboratories for undertaking a research effort under contract. Evaluates the proposal and laboratory considering past record of performance, capabilities of staff, nature of equipment and facilities, and contract terms, and recommends program scope and awarding of contract.

4. Assesses the results of electrical engineering research and analyses and develops corresponding rules and national standards

Requirements Conditions of Employment
  • U.S. Citizenship Required
  • This is a Drug Testing position.
  • Background investigation leading to a clearance is required for new hires.

You must meet the qualifications for this position by no later than 30 calendar days after the closing date of this announcement and before placement in the position.

In order to qualify for this position, you must have at least one year of specialized experience at the next lower grade level (12) in the Federal service or equivalent experience in the private or public sector.

SPECIALIZED EXPERIENCE is defined as experience that demonstrates knowledge of the electrical design of plant power distribution systems (especially protective coordination, power quality and electrical component design life) in nuclear power plants and/or large industrial plants along with application knowledge of applicable industry consensus standards and/or NRC regulations.

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate the following:

1. Demonstrated knowledge of the design, operation, inspection, maintenance, and performance evaluation of plant electrical power distribution systems and electrical components for nuclear power plants and/or large industrial plants with particular emphasis on protection/coordination, power quality and electrical component design life. Examples may include specific training, education and work experience that demonstrate your mastery of overall engineering principles related to conducting electrical engineering analyses to resolve complex and emerging issues for safety-critical distribution systems and components (both alternating current and direct current based) applicable to nuclear power plants and/or large industrial plants. Examples may also include evidence demonstrating ability to solve open-ended technical problems and be proficient in the analysis, design, testing, and maintenance of electrical equipment utilizing appropriate software and mathematical models to assess load flow analysis, fault analysis, protection and coordination and power quality (such as voltage, frequency, and harmonic content).

2. Demonstrated ability to independently plan, direct, coordinate, and manage complex, highly technical research projects. Demonstrated ability to anticipate problem areas and/or emerging technical issues and develop research projects/tasks leading to issue resolution. Examples may include specific training, education, and experience that demonstrate your ability to manage complex, technical research projects. Examples may also include relevant technical research projects or tasks that you have developed and managed with a focus on identification of problem areas, emerging issues and processes used to achieve resolution, and your specific role in the project or task.

3. Demonstrated ability to work effectively with internal and external organizations and provide leadership in conducting research related to electrical engineering. Examples may include specific experience and accomplishments communicating effectively with individuals of diverse backgrounds in various organizations. Examples may also include your role and responsibilities in interfacing with other organizations to resolve problems and/or recommended solutions to these problems.

4. Demonstrated ability to communicate effectively orally and in writing with a broad range of audiences on technical issues, challenges, and resolutions. Examples may include specific experiences and accomplishments communicating effectively orally and in writing with a diverse and broad range of audiences on technical issues, challenges, and resolutions.

5. Demonstrated knowledge of NRC regulations, regulatory guides, or equivalent industry codes and standards applicable to electrical engineering. Examples may include your experience that demonstrates your knowledge of NRC’s regulations, general design criteria, principles and procedures, regulatory guides, and equivalent industry codes and standards applicable to plant power distribution systems, offsite power system interfaces and safety-critical electrical equipment used in nuclear power plants. Examples may also include experience that shows understanding of risk-informed approaches or impact of technological advances on industry standard development related to electrical distribution equipment used in nuclear power plants.

A description of how you possess the specialized experience as well as how you meet the qualifications desired in an ideal candidate should be addressed in your resume and additional space provided for supplemental response.
