Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is a world leader in 
science and engineering research, with 11 Nobel Prize recipients over 
the past 75 years, and 59 present members of the National Academy of 
Sciences. LBNL conducts unclassified research across a wide range of 
scientific disciplines and hosts four national user facilities.


Our Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Division consists of over 100 
professional and technical staff members who are stewards of a national 
trust for a world-renowned scientific R&D organization. We protect the 
public's interest and investment in LBNL.  To learn more about the EH&S 
Division and its work, go to http://www.lbl.gov/ehs.

The EH&S Division has an exciting opportunity for a Radiation Safety 
Technical Associate within the Radiation Protection Group (RPG). This 
position is responsible for radiation protection for the RWP and X-ray 
Authorization (XA) programs, in addition to other assigned LBNL areas 
and activities. The Radiation Safety Technical Associate will 
independently inspect and monitor laboratories, equipment, accelerators, 
x-ray-generating machines, and personnel to ensure compliance. He/she 
will also conduct incident investigations and communicate with various 
levels of staff regarding findings and corrective actions. A critical 
aspect of this position is developing appropriate EH&S Division 
procedures to ensure compliance with applicable DOE and LBNL 
regulations. Being highly responsive to radiological emergencies and 
providing backup support to other radiation control technicians is also 

To qualify, you'll need significant radiation safety experience and 
in-depth knowledge of the theories which guide those practices. This 
position also requires experience independently handling the following: 
identifying/analyzing radiological hazards, conducting ALARA and 
compliance reviews, conducting radiological investigations, and 
documenting findings. Additionally, you must have demonstrated procedure 
writing experience. Knowledge of applicable DOE and OSHA radiation 
protection regulations is essential. Active Radiological Control 
Technician (RCT) qualification is also required.

Ideally, we are looking for an individual who has radiation safety 
experience in a research or similar environment. More importantly, the 
Radiation Safety Technical Associate will need to be highly resourceful 
in providing resolutions to routine and non-routine LBNL radiation 
safety issues. Current NRRPT certification is highly preferred.
