  • Mentor and lead the program staff in regard to scheduling.
  • Develop new processes, concepts, or standards that will aid Integrated Scheduling.
  • Perform complex program schedule analysis including metrics, critical path, float, and schedule variances.

  • Represent the Laboratory to the sponsor and stakeholders and serve on external scientific/technical committees and act as senior technical expert on large programs/projects.


  • Ability to secure and maintain a U.S. DOE Q-level security clearance which requires U.S. citizenship.
  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering or a related field, or an equivalent combination of education and related technical experience.
  • Significant experience with Critical Path Management (CPM) scheduling and planning, and performing Schedule Risk Assessments (SRAs).
  • Significant experience analyzing and managing a project or program schedule and effectively communicating to all levels of the project team and stakeholders.
  • Expert-level knowledge of scheduling tools demonstrated proficiency with MS Office Suite, MicroStrategy, Tableau or other analytics software for development of schedule performance metrics and resource utilization reporting.
  • Significant experience working independently, manage multiple competing priorities under pressure, and apply exceptional organizational skills to accomplish work.
  • Excellent facilitation and leadership skills necessary to lead and facilitate multi-disciplinary teams of technical experts through planning and scheduling discussions, including conflict resolution skills necessary to resolve differing opinions, scheduling conflicts, and resource allocations.
  • Expert interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills necessary to effectively collaborate in a team environment.

Additional qualifications at the TSS.5 level

  • Subject matter expertise and substantial experience in providing long-range technical and operational goals.
  • Extensive experience guiding, implementing, and applying cutting edge principles, theories, concepts and technologies to development of a large, highly complex, inter-related schedule.
