DAS - Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition ES 00

The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Nuclear Energy - Headquarters is looking for a dynamic, innovative, seasoned executive to provide leadership and expertise in managing the national program that utilizes national laboratory, universities and industry assets to develop an integrated waste management system needed to store, transport, and dispose of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level waste (HLW) accumulated in the United States.

As the DAS - Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition you will:
  • Lead the Department of Energy's, congressionally directed interim storage initiative, establishing an enduring process for a durable solution to the nation's spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste disposition challenge and the engage with willing and informed communities, states, and tribes who are interested in hosting interim storage or disposal facilities as part of an integrated waste management system.
  • Incorporate environmental and energy justice principles into procedures, engagements, collaborations, and communications underpinning consent-based processes.
  • Provide leadership and expertise to support the establishment of an integrated waste management system through development of technologies to demonstrate options for short and long-term spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste management that minimizes nuclear waste and enhances materials protection, control, and accountancy.
  • Oversee the management of project controls systems and works to ensure that the Department is employing "best practices" to control work scope, cost, and schedule and to ensure cost-effective utilization of scientific and engineering resources.
  • Oversee a university research program in the fields related to spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste disposition, including nuclear engineering, physics, chemical engineering, geology, geochemistry, radiochemistry, and other related fields of study.
  • Develop budget submissions for the Office of Management and Budget (0MB), and congressional budgets using guidance provided by the Office of the Chief Financial Officer as stipulated by the Assistant Secretary for Nuclear Energy.
  • Direct the conduct of innovative research, development, and implementation of an integrated waste management system to enable safe design, construction, and operation of nuclear facilities.

As part of your application package, asupplemental narrative must be uploaded addressing each MTQ listed below. No more than one (1) page per MTQ is allowed; additional informational information will not be considered. MTQs must provide specific examples that address relevant experience and accomplishments. Applicants must reflect superior technical qualifications demonstrated through leadership and management in the following MTQs. Failure to submit a narrative statement addressing each of the MTQs may cause your application to be deemed incomplete and not be considered.
MTQ 1: Executive-level experience in the management of programs involving highly complex integrated nuclear waste management or similar high hazard complex systems that could be directly applied to the development of technologies to demonstrate options for short and long-term Spent Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Waste management.

MTQ 2: Authoritative knowledge of and expertise in the areas of nuclear facility planning, design and operation, construction project management, and nuclear process research and development as part of an integrated waste management system that includes a broad range of safety, security, environmental protection, quality assurance and regulation considerations.

MTQ 3: Executive-level experience in working collaboratively with state and local governments, tribal nations, and historically disadvantaged communities to educate and learn from these affected parties on the design and siting of an integrated nuclear storage facility and how it should operate. An expert understanding of the Department of Energy's Consent-Based Siting (CBS) initiative is essential.
