[ Back ] [ The Roadtechs Nuclear Job Board ] [ Help ] [Edit ] [Mark Position Closed ]


Spectra Tech Inc. has immediate openings for Level 4 RCT's and Level 3 RCT's at LANL.

RCT 3

As a fully proficient radiation control technician 3 (RCT 3), provides radiological support at assigned Laboratory sites in the areas of workplace surveillance and analysis/interpretation of radiological data. In addition, provides fully proficient operational health physics support in assigned facility, function or area. Responsible for high-hazard radiological jobs. Ensures compliance with radiation protection activities, procedures and 10CFR835. Implements radiation protection procedures and applies these to a wide range of activities such as reviewing radiological work for proper controls, posting and compliance with Laboratory requirements. Assists and mentors employees in on-the-job training in the areas of: group procedures for radiation monitoring, contamination control, external exposure control and emergency response, radiation work permits, and facility design. Interfaces with emergency personnel or directly responds to an emergency situation involving radiation or radioactive material. Works with health physicist to determining appropriate re-entry requirements, directs as necessary other RCTs in monitoring and dealing with contaminated personnel. The RCT 3 may be called upon on an as-needed basis to successfully assume field management responsibility and direct the actions of other technicians. Completing assignments requires following or adhering to requirements, specifications, or procedures developed for the task. Impact of work may affect an entire facility.

Consequence of error may include serious radiological safety events, including injury to self or others, as well as noncompliance with 10CFR835, with potential for Laboratory fines under the Price-Anderson Amendments Act.

Work involves moderate physical demands, such as lifting and carrying radiation protection instruments and wearing personal protective equipment, including respiratory protection. Work may be outdoors and may be scheduled at time other than regular work hours.

RCT 3 is considered skilled/fully proficient. Incumbent applies knowledge of the job, and Laboratory policies and principles to complete a wide range of tasks. Has complete understanding and wide application of technical principle, theories, and concepts in the field. Also has general knowledge of other related disciplines. Assignments are usually focused while working within established priorities, procedures, processes, requirements or specifications. Priorities and tasks are usually prescribed. Expected to provide technical solutions to a wide range of difficult problems. Solutions are imaginative, thorough, practicable, and consistent with organization objectives. Impact of work is usually limited to a well-defined area. Incumbent performs normal aspects of job with little or no direct supervision. General instructions are given for new assignments. Work is occasionally reviewed for soundness of judgment, overall adequacy and accuracy. Some contributions for original work are expected.

Education
Position typically requires a high school diploma and two-to-four years of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience. At this level, additional training, certification, and/or education may be desirable.
This position may be subject to DOE Order 426.2, Personnel Selection, Training, and Qualification Requirements for DOE Nuclear Facilities. This DOE Order establishes entry-level requirements to ensure employees in the positions can successfully perform the requirements of the job.
Additional Job Requirements
Current DOE Q Clearance preferred, ability to obtain Q Clearance required
Current DOE RCT qualification preferred

RCT 4

As a senior radiation protection technician 4 (RCT 4), performs the full range of RCT support activities and serves as the primary point of contact for planning, coordination of resources, and ensuring resolution of conflicting demands in highly dynamic and challenging conditions that require ability as a strong tactical decision maker. Assignments may be broad or narrowly focused, but usually require contributions of substantial independent effort. Ensures that radiological controls are correctly applied for radiological work, including high-hazard radiological work, by serving as authorized subject matter expert for development of radiological work control packages (RWCPs). Provides coordination of work area resources as needed to ensure safe and efficient operations. Fulfills customer radiation protection requests while ensuring established RP-1 priorities are followed. Works effectively with customers and supervision to resolve problems including elevation of issues beyond the ability of the RCT 4 to resolve. Ability to anticipate problems and handle unforeseen issues. May include technical supervision responsibilities, but certainly includes responsibility for providing technical leadership and review. Contributions of technicians at this level are normally expected to be of sufficient value to have some impact on the outcome of entire project or group accomplishments. Through actions and words, demonstrates excellence in safety and compliance to RCTs co-workers and customers.

Consequence of error may include serious radiological safety events, including injury to self or others, as well as noncompliance with 10CFR835, with potential for Laboratory fines under the Price-Anderson Amendments Act.

Work involves moderate physical demands, such as lifting and carrying radiation protection instruments and wearing personal protective equipment, including respiratory protection. Work may be outdoors and may be scheduled at time other than regular work hours. Normally requires extensive experience in supporting radiological activities and facilities and in applying operational health physics to work.

RCT 4 is considered a senior-skilled level. Demonstrated skills and knowledge beyond those expected to be found at Level 3. Applies extensive knowledge and skills to complete specialized tasks and has full knowledge of other related disciplines. Comprehensive understanding of general and technical aspects of the job. Assignments may be broad or narrowly focused, but usually require contributions of original work. Usually includes some responsibility for coordination and participation in developing the final product working with the requestor. Develops solutions to complex problems that require the regular use of ingenuity, creativity, and independence. Contributions are of sufficient value to have some impact on the outcome of the entire group accomplishments. Work is performed without appreciable direction. Completed work is reviewed from a relatively long-term perspective, for desired results. Incumbent exercises considerable latitude in determining technical objectives of assignments, which may be completed without established procedures.

Education
Position typically requires a high school diploma and four to six years of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience. At this level, additional training, certification, and/or education may be expected, including associate’s degrees and graduation from technical institutions.
This position may be subject to DOE Order 426.2, Personnel Selection, Training, and Qualification Requirements for DOE Nuclear Facilities. This DOE Order establishes entry-level requirements to ensure employees in the positions can successfully perform the requirements of the job.

Additional Job Requirements
Current DOE Q Clearance preferred, ability to obtain Q Clearance required
Current DOE RCT qualification preferred
