5. Geoscientist - U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board

The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board (Board) is seeking to appoint a geoscientist (U.S. Citizen) as a member of its Professional Staff to support Board members in their evaluation of Department of Energy (DOE) activities related to the management of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. Located in Arlington, VA, the Board is an independent agency of the U.S. federal government that evaluates the scientific and technical validity of activities undertaken by DOE in managing and disposing of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. DOE manages and will dispose of its own spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. Under the terms of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, DOE will also transport spent nuclear fuel from commercial nuclear power plant sites to federal facilities and manage its later disposal.

Employment by Board represents an unusually attractive opportunity for a motivated person who has the background and experience needed to evaluate DOE's activities as well as the organizational and communication skills needed to present the results of such evaluations quickly, succinctly and accurately, both orally and in writing. Some international travel may be required.
