Physical (Rad/Nuke) Scientist – Fort Belvoir, VA

DTRA is seeking a candidate with a preferred strong academic background in nuclear science or nuclear engineering, such as might be attained via a Ph.D. degree program, and past experience in radiological/nuclear (R/N) detection. The candidate should be able to analyze R/N threats and related detection problems in order to provide operational, scientific and policy solutions to the Contingency and Exercises Department and supported units. The candidate’s background in R/N detection development and detection theory should accompany the ability to effectively communicate and instruct both technical and non-technical audiences, from the individual to the senior official level, in conducting effective R/N search operations. The prospective candidate should have experience in the interpretation of both detection and spectroscopic R/N data, and the operational recommendations that would accompany data analysis and interpretation. The focus of this position is not research, but instead is the training, advising and assisting of tactical units while deployed into a wide variety of environments.

ADDITIONALLY, to improve the search process, potential applicants should note:
1.  In the past applicants have ‘selected themselves out’ by not submitting a complete packet (document missing, signature missing,…)
  –> please check your submission for completeness AND, as much as allowed, follow up with the HR team who takes your application.
2.  I would ask those who apply to inform me directly, (Patrick.A.Lofy.civ AT mail.mil) of their application — and, if comfortable, to share your resume directly with me.
**************

As always, there are two ‘pathways’ to apply for this one job:
