The Environment, Safety and Health (ESH) Section seeks a Radiation Control Specialist to join the ESH Radiation Physics Operations Department.
Under very limited supervision they will
Be the radiological safety expert for major projects and operational areas of the accelerator complex as assigned,
develop, implement, and maintains monitoring programs to evaluate work conditions, environmental impact and Laboratory operations impacted by ionizing radiation hazards and to ensure compliance of all applicable local, state and federal regulations, requirements and standards and DOE orders.
lead and develop a significant portion of Fermilab's radiological control program,
implement solutions to radiological problems in conjunction and harmony with other environment, safety, and health disciplines and with Laboratory research objectives, and
creatively apply knowledge and experience to lead in the development and experimental verification of analytical solutions to radiological physics problems commonly encountered at particle accelerators.
The position is based in Batavia, IL and will require working onsite primarily, with ability for occasional work from home.
You Will
Manage or lead several significant portions of the radiological control program and their application within one or more organizational units and may include supervision of personnel.
Develop and implement programs for conducting and evaluating radiological surveys.
Lead investigations of radiological occurrences.
Prepare radiological work control documents and participates in the development of more global hazard assessments as needed.
Lead in the efforts to perform radiation shielding calculations relating to the control of radioactive material hazards, prompt radiation from accelerators, or radiological environmental releases.
Conduct analyses designed to keep doses as low as reasonably achievable.
Support other Fermilab groups in the development of new scientific facilities with respect to radiological control.
Lead the development of policy documents in accordance with applicable regulations and in harmony with other Laboratory policies.
Develop and implement techniques for using electronic equipment to characterize radiation fields.
Train personnel at all levels in radiation safety requirements both informally and as part of the overall Laboratory training program with a major role in the development of training programs.
Prepare technical documentation of radiological control measures, radiological measurements, shielding calculations, operational running conditions, radiation safety interlock functional descriptions, and/or environmental radiological conditions.
Lead and/or participate in program assessment and quality assurance activities.
Develop and maintain recordkeeping systems related to assignment.
Provides support to other work groups lab-wide as needs are identified.
Other duties as assigned.
Abides by and is responsible for performing all duties in accordance with all environmental, health and safety regulations and practices pertinent to this position.
We Are Looking For:
Experience in leading team or group efforts
