Program Manager – LBNL

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is seeking a Nuclear Security Technologies Program Manager with deep technical and programmatic knowledge of nuclear security programs, with an emphasis on nonproliferation programs to join the Office of National and Homeland Security (ONHS). ONHS acts as the interface between Berkeley Lab and the nation’s security agencies, which include the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration, and the intelligence community. The Nuclear Security Technologies Program Manager will work to strengthen the relationship with DOE Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research & Development and the related Nonproliferation Stewardship Program, as well as the broader nonproliferation stakeholder community and National Laboratory complex. As an unclassified DOE Office of Science National Laboratory, Berkeley Lab is focused on research and partnering with other institutions while transitioning toward a more applied approach.

This position will require DOE Q-level access authorization (security clearance) that involves an extensive background investigation, application, and random drug testing, and strict adherence to federal laws pertaining to such an authorization. The clearance process may take up to a year or longer to complete. If for any reason you are not able to obtain Q-level security clearance, your employment is subject to termination.

Please see the attached for more information on the position and instructions on how to apply.
