A review of workforce trends in the nuclear community
The nuclear community is undergoing a moment of unprecedented interest and growth not seen in decades. The passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act are providing a multitude of new funding opportunities for the nuclear community, and not just the current fleet. A mix of technologies and reactor types are being evaluated and deployed, with Vogtle Units 3 and 4 coming on line later this year, the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Projects of X-energy and TerraPower, and NuScale’s work with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to build a first-of-a-kind small modular reactor, making this is an exciting time to join the nuclear workforce.
Student members are an important part of the American Nuclear Society. You are tomorrow's leaders and will shape the future of nuclear science and technology. Join ANS today to connect with others in the worldwide nuclear community, take advantage of opportunities to advance your education and career, and play an active role in advocating for the future of nuclear technology.
Students are ANS’s fastest growing membership base and represent the future of the Society and the nuclear field. We have more than 60 active Student Sections with new sections added every year. Our student members organize and host an annual Student Conference attended by nearly 500 students. ANS is an association created by and for people like you.
Take your education outside of the classroom by participating in our Mentor Match program; we’ll pair you with an experienced professional in your area of interest. Or travel to an ANS meeting to make connections in person – students receive substantially discounted registration rates and can save even more by applying for financial support offered for national meetings.
We’re here to support your academic pursuits as well – apply for one of our need or academic merit scholarships or take advantage of full electronic access to all ANS publications, including our three highly-respected scientific journals. ANS also has an online library of on-demand webinars covering a variety of topics that you can use to dive deeper into your area of study or learn about something entirely new.
Change the world.
ANS members are rising to meet the unique challenges of our time. We ceaselessly advocate and educate to expand the clean, safe, and reliable energy source we know nuclear to be. In recent years, ANS has introduced nuclear science and energy curriculum into K-12 classrooms throughout the country, reaching 1.6 million students and counting. We’ve also created the ANS Rapid Response Taskforce to provide accurate and scientifically grounded information to the media. Finally, ANS works on behalf of its members to advocate for policies to advance nuclear science and technology at the national and state levels.
Join ANS and help us shape the future of nuclear today.
