Our client is a large engineering design firm that is looking for a Mechanical Engineer needed
for the Calcine Retrieval Project in Idaho Falls. Candidates will develop new technologies for
retrieving radioactive waste, in particular remote-operated robotic and electromechanical
systems. This role will be focused on testing and improving existing prototypes, as well as
designing new systems from the ground up.
While this is primarily a mechanical design and analysis role, cross-disciplinary abilities are
beneficial, especially in programming, electronics, or controls. Communication and project
management skills are also highly valued. Applicants should be comfortable working
independently with minimal guidance but must also be able to work closely with other team
members. They should enjoy finding creative solutions to difficult problems and have the
initiative to identify and resolve design deficiencies. Most importantly, they should take pride in
their work, while remaining open to feedback and suggestions from others.
• 3D modeling software (Autodesk Inventor preferred)
• Static and dynamic analysis of mechanical structures, including finite element analysis
• Fluid dynamics and heat transfer including computational fluid dynamics (STAR-CCM+
• Design of complex mechanical assemblies especially with tight space or weight
• Knowledge and experience with a broad range of manufacturing techniques
• Design, manufacturing and testing prototypes
• Programming and electronics
• Design for hazardous environments especially radiation hazards
Bachelor of Science or Masters (preferred) degree in associated engineering field (mechanical,
nuclear, mechatronics, or similar).
Monthly living allowance of up to $2,800/month to cover lodging, meals and rental car. If
candidates choose to take a trip home every month, they will have to make it fit within that
$2,800/month expense total. (Must provide receipts)
There is Mobilization pay in and out on the project!
