: We are seeking a Manager to lead the Radiation\-Solid Interactions organization within Sandia's Ion Beam Laboratory \(IBL\), which leads research in areas spanning from fundamental material science and quantum effects to analysis efforts supporting the core Sandia mission\. The research portfolio is highly multi\-disciplinary, involves research groups across Sandia and other US National Labs, and is continually focused on developing new and creative ion beam based techniques for the national security and energy missions\. In this role, you will be stewarding several key programmatic areas of opportunity in the next few years\. One is to work with the Radiation Effects Sciences management team to position new materials and technologies for qualification in harsh radiation environments, which includes advanced CMOS processes, III\-nitride devices, and fundamental understanding of new materials\. Another is to build on the IBL's capabilities in quantum materials to realize devices as qubits and single photon sources\. A third is growing the collaboration between the IBL and the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies \(CINT\)\. On any given day, you may be called on to: + Set department direction and inspire innovation to invent and advance state of the art capabilities that provide a differentiating advantage+ Develop and implement unifying R&D strategies across mission portfolios through enthusiastic mission engagement+ Lead program development efforts to connect the department's expertise with potential beneficiaries, collaborators, and customers in alignment with organizational goals, Sandia's mission, and the Center's strategic plans+ Strengthen customer partnerships to enrich relationships and amplify our mission impact+ Lead program execution to meet performance, cost and schedule requirements+ Extend innovation to our daily activities by adopting new processes to streamline the business aspects of our work+ Cultivate a diverse work environment and ensure a culture that promotes safety and security+ Oversee recruitment, selection, training, performance assessment, work assignments, recognition and disciplinary actions+ Serve as a derivative classifier \(DC\) Required: + PhD in a STEM discipline plus eight years' experience or Master's in a STEM discipline plus 14 years' experience+ Record of peer\-reviewed publications in the open literature+ Ability to obtain and maintain a DOE Q clearance Desired: + Experience with ion beam analysis/modification, microelectronic radiation effects, defects in materials, applied nuclear/atomic physics, or related technical background+ Experience working with or managing complex ES&H issues+ Two years' leadership experience+ Demonstrated ability to manage multidisciplinary, cross\-Center, and cross\-Division projects+ Previous line management experience at Sandia or another US National Laboratory Department Description: The Radiation\-Solid Interaction Department operates the newly\-constructed $40M Ion Beam Laboratory at Sandia National Laboratories\. This state\-of\-the\-art facility houses 4 major accelerators: a 6 MV Tandem, a 3 MV Pelletron, a 400 kV implanter, and a unique 100 kV Nano Implanter with a<20nm spot size\. Other experimental facilities include micro beam lines on all the major accelerators, a pulsed laser deposition system for synthesizing unique films, and a TEM, equipped with gas, fluid, and nanomechanical stages, with in\-situ ion irradiation available from both the Tandem and a Colutron source\. The Ion Beam Laboratory is actively engaged in three major research thrusts: \(1\) Understanding the performance of materials in radiation environments\. These projects impact the performance of microelectronics in space and other hostile environments, and fuel and cladding materials in nuclear reactor and storage environments\. \(2\) Developing and applying novel ion beam techniques to precisely measure materials compositions\. Applications in this area include mapping hydrogen isotopes in fusion wall material, and measuring the composition of thin complex materials such as transition metal oxides\. \(3\) Exploring the materials science of defects in solids\. This broad area includes single ion implants for quantum applications, anomalous grain growth in nanograined materials, hydride formation under irradiation, and nanomechanical responses of materials\. In each thrust the department provides unique capabilities to multidisciplinary teams with an interest in publishing high quality research and applying the results to problems of national interest\. About Sandia: Sandia National Laboratories is the nation's premier science and engineering lab for national security and technology innovation, with teams of specialists focused on cutting\-edge work in a broad array of areas\. Some of the main reasons we love our jobs: + Challenging work withamazingimpact that contributes to security, peace, and freedom worldwide+ Extraordinary co\-workers+ Some of the best tools, equipment, and research facilities in the world+ Career advancement and enrichment opportunities+ Flexible schedules, generous vacations,strongmedical and other benefits, competitive 401k, learning opportunities, relocation assistance and amenities aimed at creating a solid work/life balance\* _World\-changing technologies\. Life\-changing careers\._ Learn more about Sandia at: http://www\.sandia\.gov \*These benefits vary by job classification\. Security Clearance: Position requires a Department of Energy \(DOE\) granted Q\-level security clearance\. Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre\-employment drug testing, and a pre\-employment background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education verifications\. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q\-level security clearance, which requires U\.S\. citizenship\. Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance\. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by the DOE, rendering the inability to perform the duties assigned and resulting in termination of employment\.
