Organization Type
Idaho National Laboratory is hiring a Computational Scientist to work on our Nuclear Science & Technology team. Our team works a 9x80 schedule located out of our Research & Education Campus with every other Friday off.

Computational Scientist will be a strong asset to the MOOSE team and work effectively both in isolation and as a member of the team. They must take direction from other team members and peers and provide input in a constructive manner to others while maintaining a positive and professional relationship with all even while under pressure and tight deadlines.


* May lead computational multiphysics methods and code development and software teams. Specifically, assist with the development advanced scientific numerical packages, frameworks, and multiphysics analysis tools for nuclear fuel performance modeling. Provide Software Quality Assurance.

* Oversee and develop computational science/math algorithms involving solutions of multiphysics problems, nonlinear solvers, and preconditioning, discretization of PDE systems, finite element methods, and discontinuous Galerkin methods. Organize team research and lead advanced research and development.

* Provide recommendations to INL management to ensure program objectives and milestones are clearly defined and achieved. This will include fostering collaborative relationships both inside the INL and external entities (university faculty, industry vendors, other national laboratories, and foreign national researchers).

* Prepare internal and external technical reports; publish work in peer-reviewed journals, topical meetings, conference summaries, and conference proceedings. Participate in professional society activities.
