Application Deadline: Closed
Position: Full-time, Paid

Sandia National Laboratories Description

Sandia National Laboratories is searching for a Technical Undergrad for the summer of 2014 to join Sandia’s Computer Sciences Group located in sunny Livermore, California.

The selected candidate will perform entry-level work within a science and engineering environment involving assignments that may include assisting with research, application of project design and diagnostics, testing and documentation, development and analysis of technology options, and assembly and troubleshooting.

The Secondary Reachback Project is seeking a student intern who is interested in helping the project create a rich data-analysis/visualization web app with Ruby on Rails. The intern will be working at our California campus during the summer of 2014. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) is implementing a domestic system to detect attempts to import or transport radiological or nuclear material intended for illicit use. Secondary Reachback uses data, collected over many years from radiation monitors on highways, airports, and seaports, to develop products that enhance the ability to recognize anomalous radiation profiles in trucks, cars, and shipping containers. Secondary Reachback draws on the expertise of radiation physicists at Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories. Sandia National Laboratories has developed software to assist in analyzing existing data from radiation monitors to develop “signatures” that model threat and non-threat situations. These signatures provide federal and state officials with an additional method for determining whether a vehicle with an anomalous radiation profile is a threat.

The intern will be helping the team port a PHP/Symfony prototype, of a radiation-data app, to Ruby on Rails. The intern will also be adding new analysis tools, and new visualizations. The app will give the end-users a rich-GUI interface to pull data in from a database. The app will also combine analysis tools with highly-interactive visualizations. Visualizations include plots, charts, viewers to display radiation spectrum, 2-D data visualizations such as density plots, etc.

Job Specification

The Technical Reachback Project is seeking a student intern who is interested in developing numerical mathematical models or visualizations for use in software applications. The intern will be working at our California campus during the summer of 2015.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO) is implementing a domestic system to detect attempts to import or transport radiological or nuclear material intended for illicit use. Technical Reachback uses data, collected over many years from radiation monitors on highways, airports, and seaports, to develop products that enhance the ability to recognize anomalous radiation profiles in trucks, cars, and shipping containers. Technical Reachback draws on the expertise of radiation physicists at Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratories. Sandia National Laboratories has developed software to assist in analyzing existing data from radiation monitors to develop “signatures” that model threat and non-threat situations. These signatures provide federal and state officials with an additional method for determining whether a vehicle with an anomalous radiation profile is a threat.

The project is seeking a computational mathematical software developer intern to develop data analysis algorithms or scientific visualizations that will be used in gamma radiation studies. There are a wide variety of tasks the intern could choose from. The intern could choose to parameterize, into a kernel function, a phenomenon that was observed in a radiation experiment; the intern would be using data analysis tools and visualization tools to accomplish this task. The intern could help develop algorithms to customize 3D visualizations. Another possibility is to help researchers use their insight, of radiation physics, to tweak computationally-intensive optimization algorithms so that they converge faster.

Security Clearance

No clearance required.

This position does not currently require a Department of Energy (DOE)-granted security clearance.

Sandia will conduct a pre-employment background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record checks, and employment and education verifications. Further, employees in New Mexico must pass a U.S. Air Force background screen for access to the work site. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause access to be denied or terminated, rendering the inability to perform the duties assigned and resulting in termination of employment.

If hired without a clearance, and one subsequently becomes required or you bid on positions that require a DOE-granted security clearance, a pre-processing background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education verifications may be conducted prior to a required federal background investigation. Applicants for DOE-granted security clearances must be U.S. citizens and be able to obtain and maintain the appropriate DOE security clearance as required for the position.
