From the inbox, a A.A./B.S. chemist position at a nuclear power plant:
The major responsibility is to monitor and maintain the following as specified in the individual employee training plan: Liquid and gaseous plant effluents, water quality in all plant systems, corrosion controls, biomonitoring, liquid radioactive waste processing, decontamination, environmental controls, personnel safety, and radiation and contamination surveys thus protecting plant systems, the general public and meeting regulatory requirements.
This position will require shift rotation work.
This position requires respiratory protection qualifications including the donning of SCBA.
During your employment, you may be assigned to positions within the Emergency Response Organization (ERO) that require response to the station when an emergency is declared. If you are assigned to one of these positions, a condition of continued employment will be your ability to arrive at the station to perform ERO responsibilities within 45 minutes of notification of an emergency.Sounds interesting. Pays $25.69 to $37.05 hour (depending on experience).
It seems to me that there's some job security/stability in working at nuclear power plants whose owners plan to continue to operate? (I sense that a lot of these plants are facing decommissioning in the future?)
