DOE makes efforts to develop an inclusive STEM workforce
More than 300 employees from the Department of Energy's Office of Environmental Management (EM) have recently retired, resulting in a large amount of job vacancies across the cleanup program, according to the DOE.
EM’s Workforce Management Office is implementing recruitment efforts to fill the vacancies with college graduates, early career professionals, mid-career candidates, and seasoned veterans.
According to the DOE, "The open positions offer opportunities across many different disciplines, including engineering, science, business, management, safety and information technology."
Nuclear Criticality Safety Division Topical Meeting (NCSD 2022)

Kaushik Banerjee (PNNL)
Justin B. Clarity (PNNL)
In this panel session, each panelist will discuss their country-specific approach to post-closure criticality safety in view of the final geological disposal of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste. The discussion will include and reflect key topics presently being considered by the new international, waste management organization (WMO)-level collaboration initiative on post-closure criticality safety under the IGD-TP framework (https://igdtp.eu/). Each speaker will give a 10-minute summary with a Q&A afterwards.
