Input Needed for Nuclear Engineers Data Collection: Will you help?

The American Nuclear Society has been asked to help with a project important to our profession, the Occupational Information Network or O*NET. O*NET is provided by the U.S. Department of Labor, used by millions for career exploration and job analysis and is America’s primary source of occupational information. O*NET researchers at Research Triangle Institute are currently updating the classification of Nuclear Engineers and need input from our most experienced members to ensure the reference of this work is kept accurate and up-to-date.

Do you meet the following occupational expert criteria?  If so, please call or email Traci Davis at Research Triangle Institute: or 877-233-7348 ext. 109 to offer your assistance.  Please provide your name, mailing address and daytime phone number as well as your total years of experience as a Nuclear Engineer.

•A minimum of 10 years experience with the occupation? (This includes those who are training, supervising and/or teaching if they have at least one year of experience practicing the occupation at some point in their career.)

Nuclear Engineers: Conduct research on nuclear engineering problems or apply principles and theory of nuclear science to problems concerned with release, control, and utilization of nuclear energy and/or nuclear waste disposal. 

•Currently practicing, supervising, training or teaching in the United States.

A random sample of experts responding to this request will be asked to complete occupational questionnaires.  Aggregate information gathered will update the reference for this occupation at which describes how the work is performed, the knowledge required and typical work settings. Volunteer information will be kept strictly private. A certificate of appreciation from the USDOL and $40 in cash will be enclosed in the questionnaire packet as a token of thanks. Questionnaires take approximately 90 minutes to complete and can be done a little at a time on paper or online submission.
