Job description
Health Physics Technician - 88354
Organization: EH-Environ, Health, & Safety

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) has an opening for a Health Physics Technician to join the Radiation Protection Group in the Environment, Health & Safety Division (https://ehs.lbl.gov/). The Health Physics Technician position is primarily responsible for processing of portable health physics instrument calibration and repair, fixed radiation detection instrument/equipment installation calibration and maintenance. Additionally, the Health Physics Technician will support activities within the broader radiation protection; sample analysis and counting, Dosimetry operations, with a minor role supporting Laser Safety, and/or non-ionizing radiation programs. This is a great opportunity to work with an experienced Environmental Waste and Radiation Protection team to support science and operations at Berkeley Lab, while building a rewarding career with a highly regarded research institution!

What You Will Do:
• Health Physics Instrumentation - Perform work activities required to implement Berkeley Lab’s Radiation Instrumentation Program to assure safe and compliant calibration and maintenance, in accordance with policies and procedures. Calibrate all portable and fixed radiation measurement instruments (e.g., Ludlum hand-held instruments, Liquid Scintillation Counters, testing equipment), as well as MTE, scales, balances, sampling equipment, and measurement devices.

• Analytical Laboratory - Perform counting/measurement activities with radioactivity detection equipment, process radioactive samples, maintain quality control, documentation and operational records. Perform detector calibration and quality controls.

• Non-ionizing Radiation/Laser Field Support - Assist in performing laser labs assessments to ensure compliance with established control requirements. Report non-compliances to LBNL Laser Safety Officer.

• Dosimetry Processing and Operational Support - Participate in the dosimeter exchanges with off-site vendors; assist Dosimetry Technical Lead with DOELAP performance testing procedures; support dose investigations for potential personnel and environmental exposures and concerns; and manage Electronic Pocket Dosimeters distribution and reporting.

What is Required:
• 2 to 10+ years of relevant experience in health physics instrument processes, including performing calibration procedures, maintaining equipment inventory; or a combination of education and experience in which specialized concepts, technologies are acquired.
• Strong knowledge of the physics and engineering of radiation detectors, including alpha/beta/gamma counting instruments, ionization chambers, scintillation counters, and neutron measurement devices.
• Knowledge of the electronics associated with the calibration and operation of these systems.
• Understanding of the safety systems employed in calibration facilities, as well as knowledge of Quality Assurance requirements in the operation of calibration facilities, including training, procedures, records and quality control.
• Ability to perform physical requirements of the position, including: approximately 2 hours per day sitting; approximately 4 hours per day standing and/or walking; up to 1 hour per day of hand use involving fine manipulation, keyboard/mouse use, simple and/or power grasping; and performing routine hands-on work activities (e.g., squatting, kneeling, climbing, bending, twisting).
• Must be able to routinely lift and carry up to 40 lbs.

Additional Desired Qualifications:
• Radiological Control/Health Physics Technician.
• Experience with radiation measurement and radioisotope handling principles, including monitoring, analysis and radioisotope identification.
• Experience with Non-ionizing Radiation/Laser Field Support programs.
• Mechanical/electrical fabrication experience.
• Experience working in a research facility.

• This is a full-time career appointment, non-exempt (hourly paid) from overtime pay.
• This position is represented by a union for collective bargaining purposes. Salary will be determined based on range by collective bargaining agreement.
• Classification will depend upon the applicant's level of skills, knowledge, and abilities.
• 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.
