: We are seeking a Laboratory Support Technologist to join a team of scientists, engineers, and technologists contributing to Sandia's body of pulsed power capability\. Work is performed in the 100\-ft diameter, 20\-ft tall Z pulsed power tanks, which are filled with transmission oil and de\-ionized water when not occupied for shot preparations; this work space includes high voltage components, confined spaces, and radiological & beryllium contamination areas\. This environment demands a high level of teaming and thoughtfulness, as well as focus, reliability, and stamina, often in dynamically paced and trying environments\. Key functions of this role include, but are not limited to: + Prepare, configure, and maintain the Z machine as a pulsed power driver in addition to activities and efforts aimed at improving the driver and the operations that support it+ Perform machine/component maintenance and configuration in the Z Machine's Energy Storage Section \(ESS\) and Pulse Forming Section \(PFS\)+ Perform and assist with dive operations in the PFS+ Refurbish and rebuild Z Machine components \(e\.g\., laser\-triggered gas switches, spark gaps, resistors, Marx generators, etc\.\)+ Provide operational support for shot execution and post\-shot activities+ Perform all duties in compliance with operational safety, security and quality guidelines+ Support work in other areas of the facility including the center section, vacuum section, or liquid & gas transfer section as needed+ Support shift and/or extended workweek hours as needed Required: + Requires high school diploma plus three years of work experience+ Experience with electrical and mechanical equipment and tools+ Experience working as part of a team and independently+ Ability to obtain and maintain a DoE Q clearance Desired: + Highly self\-motivated and adaptable+ Excellent work ethic+ Experience operating various types of moving equipment \(e\.g\. forklifts, overhead cranes\)+ Experience with assembly/disassembly, maintenance, operation, testing, and improving high\-voltage pulsed\-power components, specifically Marx bank technology+ Excellent verbal, written, planning, and interpersonal skills+ Experience implementing quality principles and standards+ Experience in a high stress, high intensity, fast\-paced environment+ Experience working within challenging conditions for significant lengths of time \(e\.g\., confined spaces, elevated work, work with high voltage equipment, diving, etc\.\) Department Description: Department 01679, Z Pulsed Power Systems, is responsible for the reliable performance of the Z pulsed power driver in service of national High Energy Density Physics \(HEDP\) science programs\. The department is composed of a team of scientists, engineers, and technologists working together to provide responsible stewardship of this important national asset\. The Z Machine's ability to generate well above 25 million Amperes with power in the hundreds of trillions of Watts enable research that provides critical data relevant to both non\-nuclear components and nuclear explosives packages in partnership with LANL and LLNL as part of the NNSA's Stockpile Stewardship Program\. Additionally, Z is active in fundamental science and fusion research and is an internationally recognized and respected experimental facility\. Approximately 160\-180 shots are conducted across this varied mission space each year on Z, affording opportunities for engagement in a wide range of challenges with broad impact\. In addition to the responsibilities for the Z machine itself, Department 01679 is responsible for the concept of operations underlying the use of the facility as a unique scientific capability\. A complex interplay of systems of both people and of technology, on both tactical and strategic timescales simultaneously must be efficiently facilitated and continuously improved in order to enable an ever\-growing capability in a broadly multi\-disciplinary environment\.
