SHINE is immediately seeking a Nuclear Safety Analysis Engineer to provide the development and application of nuclear safety analysis methodologies for safe and effective operations of the subcritical fission processes and accelerator technology for the production of medical isotopes. This work includes transient and accident analysis, system thermal-hydraulic analysis and nuclear criticality safety analysis.

Duties and Responsibilities:
Specific duties and responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

Perform system analyses of anticipated transients and postulated accidents to demonstrate that safety and licensing requirements are satisfied
Perform radiological and chemical dose calculations for normal and accidental releases
Support of nuclear criticality safety evaluations and analysis, including development and evaluation of computer models
Support Integrated Safety Analysis (ISA) activities including hazard evaluations (e.g., HAZOP, FMEA), process hazard analyses (PHA), and accident sequence development.
Systems analysis to include thermal hydraulics, modeling, heat transfer, transient kinetics, two-phase flow, system protection characteristics, and plant control system functions
Perform hand calculations using first principles of heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics to support and validate analysis results
Perform code benchmarking and validation analyses to support code qualification and methodology development
Contribute to licensing documents for NRC review and approval that describe how the suite of nuclear analysis codes will be applied along with inputs, models, and correlations to establish the design bases
