Additional Desired Qualifications:
Minimum of 8 years of experience, a Master's degree in an appropriate engineering or applied science discipline, or an equivalent combination of relevant education and work experience.
Experience with emergency management and consequence assessment modeling and simulation software such as NARAC, HotSpot, EPIcode, and ALOHA.
Experience conducting natural, technological hazards assessments to meet compliance/funding requirements for emergency management. Including the development of hazard mitigation plans, Threat and Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments (THIRAs), hazard vulnerability assessments, or other emergency management planning processes.
Understanding of chemical hazards and the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, including the National Fire Protection Association Standards (NFPA 704, NFPA 45, NFPA 55), Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals.
Familiarity with industry practices for hazard identification, such as those described in the Center for Chemical Process Safety's Guidelines for Hazard Evaluation Procedures.
Familiarity with hazard evaluation techniques, such as Fault Tree Analysis, Event Tree Analysis, Hazard and Operability (HAZOP) Studies, or Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA).

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.
