NRC INVITES PUBLIC TO SUBMIT NOMINATIONS FOR ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON REACTOR SAFEGUARDS

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is requesting nominations of qualified candidates for a vacant position on its Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS).

The ACRS was established by the Congress to provide the NRC with independent expert advice on matters related to the safety of operating or proposed nuclear power plants.

Currently, the ACRS is considering safety issues associated with the operation of more than 100 nuclear units in the United States including risk-informed regulatory approaches, license renewal applications, revisions to the safety goal policy statement, and applications of the revised source term (radioactive material released during an accident).

The ACRS membership is drawn from a variety of engineering and scientific disciplines needed to review these matters as well as proposed safety standards and criteria and related research activities.

The Commission is currently seeking candidates with 15 to 20 years of specific experience, including graduate level education in materials science, metallurgical/structural engineering, or systems engineering as applied to nuclear plant systems, or the application of risk methods to nuclear safety issues. Approximately 80 to 100 working days per year will be required. Candidates are selected to provide a balanced technical base for Committee activities, consistent with the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act.

For candidates who are actively involved in regulated aspects of the nuclear industry, the extent of their involvement will have to be considered. Each individual's financial interests will need to be reconciled with applicable rules and regulations before a final appointment can be completed.

Copies of resumes describing the educational and professional background of the nominee, including any specific accomplishments, should be provided. Nominees must be citizens of the United States. Applications will be accepted until July 15.

Resumes should be sent to the Office of Human Resources, ATTN: Jude Himmelberg, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555. Any questions regarding this announcement should also be directed to Ms. Himmelberg, at 301-415-6974.
