Are you interested in tackling some of the most challenging issues facing our nation’s security? If you are passionate about your Experimental work and dream of utilizing state-of-the-art facilities, join our dynamic Electromagnetics Team!

The Electromagnetic Theory & Simulation Department is seeking a candidate with a background in electromagnetic theory, computational physics, and/or computer science for the development and application of electromagnetic computational simulation software. This software will be used to simulate electromagnetic environments and their effect on complex systems.

This software will include boundary element method (integral equation method-of-moments) and finite-element techniques. The development of this software will include algorithmic enhancements to enable the electromagnetic simulation of complex systems, improve the usability of the code for electromagnetic analysts, and provide alternate solution methods for generalized capability to address a wide array of electromagnetic problems! You will assist in identifying, developing, and implementing these advanced computational solution methods.

In addition, these software tools will be implemented with next generation high-performance computing platforms in mind. These platforms will use a MPI+X environment, a hybrid parallel distributed and threaded processing paradigm. In the near term, the threaded processing platforms include nVidia GPUs. As part of a software team the candidate is expected to work well in an environment that uses agile methods of software engineering.


+ Ph.D. degree in mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, physics or closely related field, with a specialization in computational simulation or computational electromagnetics
+ Ability to obtain and maintain a DOE Q Clearance


+ Experience in C++, object-oriented programming, and a collaborative development environment
+ Experience developing and/or working with full-wave (Integral-Equation Method of Moments) software
+ Publications or presentations demonstrating experience with developing numerical simulations or first-principles models for complex physical processes
+ Strong mathematical and analysis background with good knowledge of electromagnetic theory, analysis, modeling, and simulation. Knowledge of parallel programming, threading, distributed memory, and/or SIMD
+ Experience with High Performance Computing architectures and execution
+ Experience with parallel programming extensions such as MPI, OpenMP, or Cuda
+ Ability to collaborate with others and contribute to a team effort
+ Outstanding communication skills and flexible in job assignments
+ Passionate about developing expertise in different areas of electromagnetics

Department Description:

Department 1352 is a multidisciplinary research group that conducts theory and simulation to support the Department of Energy's NNSA Defense Programs. The primary areas of research include analytic theory and modeling in linear electromagnetics. Our capabilities are used to advance our understanding of electromagnetic on components and systems in support of the NNSA's stockpile stewardship program. This includes the development of massively parallel electromagnetic codes under the DOE Advanced Scientific Computing program.

*These benefits vary by job classification.

Security Clearance:

Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment need to be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.

Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.

EEO Statement:

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status and any other protected class under state or federal law.
