Looking for a job on campus? Interested in learning how to operate a nuclear reactor? 

MIT's Nuclear Reactor Lab is currently seeking out motivated MIT freshmen for reactor operator positions. There will be a job information session and tour of the reactor on January 21st at 10:00am for freshmen who are interested in the position. To register for this event, please fill out the following Google Form by 1/20:

No previous knowledge of nuclear physics or engineering is required and freshmen in all majors are welcomed! All knowledge and skills are taught during the training period. *Please note that to qualify for this position you must be able to work full-time during the summer in 2015

A little bit more about the position: Those who are hired will train part-time (~10 hours/week) during the spring semester and full-time during the summer (and IAP if possible). In September, qualified students will take a licensing exam to be administered on-site by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Once licensed, students work ~16 hours/week through their senior years and have the option to work full time during subsequent summers. Flexible shifts are available to work with your varying schedule throughout the semesters.
