Applications are being requested from outstanding candidates with expertise in engineering and scientific fields, especially nuclear engineering, environmental sciences/engineering, geology/hydrology/civil engineering, nuclear materials, nuclear waste, and radiological protection. Outstanding candidates in other disciplines related to the work of the ASLBP will also be considered on a case-by-case basis. A minimally qualified applicant must have at least 10 years of work experience in a field related to the ASLBP’s work. However, a preferred candidate would have a Ph.D./M.D. (or equivalent education/experience) with at least 10 years of recent specialized experience beyond the Ph.D. that demonstrates expert and comprehensive knowledge and experience in an engineering or scientific discipline that can be applied to the adjudicatory work of the ASLBP. This experience should be extensive and focused on the field for which the applicant believes they are qualified, and should be evidenced by publication, teaching, public speaking, research, and/or extensive industry experience indicating that the applicant is a recognized expert in that field. At least one year of this experience should be comparable in complexity and responsibility to the kind of work normally assigned at the grade 15 level in the Federal government, or equivalent level in the private sector. The preferred candidate would demonstrate the ability to work courteously with others in an adversarial or collegial setting; to establish effective work relationships with all levels of management, colleagues, and staff; and to achieve cooperation and consensus among colleagues engaged in joint or parallel efforts. Applicants must also possess the experience and professional stature required to perform successfully the important duties and activities of ASLBP Administrative Judges. The ideal candidate for this position will demonstrate: 1. Demonstrate comprehensive knowledge and experience in an engineering or scientific field, including the ability to understand, interpret, and assimilate technical subject matter to evaluate evidence in a proceeding and provide a comprehensive written or oral analysis of that information. 2. Demonstrate the ability to make independent decisions in a timely, fair, and impartial manner. This includes the ability to work independently or as part of a project team with a focus on timely completion of deliverables. 3. Demonstrate the ability to communicate orally in a manner that is clear, concise, and understandable. Demonstrate the ability to listen attentively and deal courteously, tactfully, firmly, and impartially with others in an adversarial or collegial setting. In addition, candidates should describe any prior non-litigant oral communication experience with the adjudicatory process (e.g., as an expert witness/deponent). 4. Demonstrate the ability to write clear, concise, comprehensive, and convincing decisions or technical documents involving significant technical issues in a timely manner. In addition, candidates should describe any prior non-litigant writing experience with the adjudicatory process (e.g., producing expert reviews/reports). 5. Demonstrate the ability to establish effective work relationships with all levels of management, colleagues, and staff, and to achieve cooperation and consensus among colleagues engaged in joint or parallel efforts. A description of how you possess the specialized experience as well as how you meet the qualifications desired in an idealcandidate should be addressed in your resume.
