Baxley, GA 31515
This position is for a Nuclear Engineer assigned to Southern Nuclear Company’s (SNC) Nuclear Fuel & Analysis department, located at the corporate headquarters in Birmingham, AL, or Reactor Engineering at one of our 3 nuclear reactor sites, Plant Farley, Plant Vogtle, or Plant Hatch.
The Nuclear Fuel & Analysis department includes BWR Fuel Engineering, PWR Fuel Engineering, and Safety Analysis teams. SNC's corporate Fuel Engineering departments are responsible for nuclear fuel and core design, core management, operational support, reload safety analysis, and reload licensing to support our BWR and PWR nuclear units. SNC’s corporate Safety Analysis provides plant support through performing analyses such as evaluations of containment response, radiological releases, and transient analyses on the entire SNC fleet of BWRs and PWRs associated with assumed accidents and events to ensure compliance. These roles permit an exceptional level of utility ownership and technical depth and are an excellent development opportunity for individual professional growth. SNC’s Nuclear Fuel & Analysis department also offers outstanding opportunities for innovation in the realm of nuclear fuel and core design.
The Reactor Engineering department provides technical direction regarding the safe, efficient, and reliable operation of reactor cores and nuclear fuel. Reactor Engineers deal daily with issues concerning nuclear fuel and reactor operation. They are responsible for optimal core performance, core physics tests, fuel performance, and special nuclear material accountability. Typical duties include monitoring core performance and reactivity control; direction and on-site support to ensure safe core loading, alterations, and power operation, plant startups, and major power changes; performing core physics surveillance testing; providing engineering support to resolve problems in and improve the long-term reliability of the fuel handling, dry fuel storage, and nuclear instrumentation systems. Reactor Engineers at SNC may have opportunities to manage special projects and for future developmental assignments in operations, training, or quality assurance to prepare for supervisory and management positions.
