Job Description

Are you an experienced engineer with a broad set of skills who is searching for a mission-driven opportunity? Would you be interested in working with a dedicated and innovative team that is responsible for establishing a curriculum followed by more than 1,000 instructors at our Naval Nuclear Power Training Units (NPTUs)? If so, now is an exciting time to join our team!


The NPTU training curriculum provides participants with an understanding of reactor /related-systems design and applies that knowledge to the operation of a naval nuclear propulsion plant. It provides hands-on nuclear plant operations experience and leads to initial qualification as a nuclear plant operator/supervisor. The curriculum and qualification establish the foundational knowledge and skills for all US Naval Nuclear Operators.


The Naval Training and Simulation (NTS) organization within the Naval Nuclear Laboratory is responsible for designing, building, and operating nuclear training programs for the US Navy. The Nuclear Operations Training unit within NTS provides remote support for the instructors at the NPTUs in South Carolina and New York and works closely with both of the NPTUs and with Naval Reactors to continuously improve our curriculum. We also have the responsibility to validate the quality of the training that is conducted. Specifically, we author the final written certification examinations, approve any temporary curriculum deviations, and conduct periodic on-site audits. In order to support our work, professional competence over a broad spectrum of technical fields is required. Strong communication and organizational skills are also a must. This work provides a unique opportunity for the successful candidate to make a significant, enduring impact on future sailors who will operate the Navy's nuclear-powered ships and submarines.


In addition to providing an engaging and challenging technical position, NNL provides a strong work/life balance, excellent employment stability, and competitive salary and benefits. NNL also offers the opportunity to work with a collaborative and skilled workforce with a wide variety of technical expertise, providing successful candidates with ample opportunity to broaden your knowledge and experience to advance your career.
