Berkeley Lab's Facilities Division has an opening for a Facilities Civil/Structural Engineer. As a member of the Facilities Division, Plant Engineering Department, you will work on a variety of projects from the Lead Civil/Structural Engineer, to plan and conduct supervised work requiring judgment in the evaluation, selection, application, and adaptation of standard structural engineering, procedures, and criteria. You will work on issues of diverse scope, requiring evaluation of a variety of factors, following established processes and operational policies in selecting methods and techniques for obtaining solutions.
What You Will Do:
Knowledgeable in the practice of structural engineering of new structures and modifications/alternations to existing structures, and for civil engineering of site structures and assets.
Perform detailed structural engineering for programmatic clients (ALS, BELLA, MSD, and Computational Sciences) for seismic anchorage designs of non-structural components and research equipment.
Maintain contact with work in progress by reviewing design concepts, drawings, and specifications developed by subcontracted A&E firms.
Routinely reviews the status of all assigned work orders and coordinates appropriate action with the Work Planning & Control Group in a timely manner.
Frequently interact with a wide variety of clients and managers from other units including Planning, Project Management, Maintenance & Operations, and Research Divisions to ensure that projects are receiving adequate technical support and that the quality of work is satisfactory. Keeps abreast of technical developments.
Participate in operational reviews of all Construction Projects (Capital, Small and Maintenance Projects) for constructability, operability, maintainability, reliability, and life cycle cost of structural related facilities.
Review subcontractor's shop drawings and submittals in parallel with the A/E's review for the same subject matters.
What Is Required:
Bachelor's degree from an accredited university in Civil, Structural, or Architectural engineering and a minimum of 2 years of related experience; or an advanced degree without experience; or equivalent work experience.
Experience with AutoCAD and the preparation of construction drawings.
Knowledgeable in the practice of structural engineering of new structures and modifications/alterations to existing structures, and for civil engineering of site structures and assets.
Knowledge of structural design principles, calculations, applications of methods, materials and the use of computers in the structural engineering disciplines.
Ability to understand unusual and/or complex design problems and provide recommendations for their solution.
An Engineer-in-Training certificate from the State of California Board of Professional Engineers, with plans to obtain a Civil Engineering License within 5 years.
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Experience with Mathcad and structural engineering software programs SAP2000, RISA, Enercalc, and/or RetainPro.
The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
This is a full time career appointment.
Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
