Safety Analysis Engineer – SMRs – REMOTE

We are supporting one of the key players in the SMR (small modular reactor) market. They are seeking a Safety Analysis Engineer to support the design development for advanced Gen IV reactors. Can work 100% remote. 1 year+ contract.


  • Depending on qualification and skills, perform transient analyses to meet the safety analysis needs of the Natrium Demonstration reactor for Anticipated Operational Occurrence (AOO), Design Basis Event (DBE), Design Basis Accident (DBA), and Beyond Design Basis Event (BDBE).
  • Collaborate with safety methods development engineers to establish methods, computational models, and other aspects of the Evaluation Models.
  • Work with an interdisciplinary team of engineers to establish SSC functional, performance, safety, and quality requirements as well as support the overall design.
  • Establish and maintain documentation of model development and analysis.
  • Perform engineering reviews of analyses and other engineering design media.
  • Contribute, as needed, to the development of computational models supporting system modeling for design and operational transients as well as PRA.
  • Contribute, as needed, to the assessment of the Evaluation Models against applicable tests and perform appropriate benchmark calculations.
  • Contribute, as needed, to the implementation of capabilities required for transient and accident analysis within the software framework.

Key Qualifications and Skills

  • Knowledgeable of nuclear systems fundamentals such as thermal-hydraulic, neutronics, dynamics, and reactor transient behavior in general.
  • Familiarity and experience with analysis of Anticipated Operational Occurrence (AOO), Design Basis Event (DBE), Design Basis Accident (DBA), Beyond Design Basis Event (BDBE), and Source Term is required.
