The Export Compliance Officer will:
Establish and maintain positive working relationships with customers, DOE, UC, and other sponsor personnel through provision of information and collaborative problem solving in compliance with dynamic Export Control (EC) regulations and requirements.
Serve as the expert and primary point of contact for advice, resources, education, and coordination of export control compliance. This includes regular technology and research project screening activities, as well as education and outreach about export control regulatory compliance and related topics. The Export Compliance Officer will conduct regular small group sessions and facilitate seminars as appropriate.
Identify needs for enhancement to the LBNL EC program to strengthen performance at all Laboratory operating levels and determine how to best utilize available Laboratory resources to meet those needs.
Develop and implement Laboratory wide EC policies and procedures. Draft and maintain policies and training manuals and website resources.
Prepare and deliver ongoing training for Laboratory staff and management, including Export Control Liaisons and members of other organizational areas, e.g. Purchasing, Property, Shipping, User Facilities, and Innovations and Partnerships Office, as well as Divisional Scientists and Operations staff.
Provide leadership for EC outreach to Berkeley Lab staff, internal and external clients and other DOE and UC entities.
Conduct Export Control analysis of individual projects and technologies. This involves working with scientists to understand the technology, individuals, and facilities involved and determining whether a technology control plan (TCP) is needed, and drafting the TCP, if warranted. In some cases, this could require filing for a formal commodity jurisdiction determination or export license with federal agencies. Responsible for maintenance of all export licenses and TCPs.
Review LBNL property for ITAR status (surveys) and Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCN), in particular, with respect to international shipments, and determine the appropriate path forward based on policy, regulations, and/or past practice.
Complete restricted party screenings of individuals and entities as they apply to the specific workload task, e.g. s, SPPs, etc.
Review Laboratory transactions, i.e., Foreign Visits and Assignments, Purchase Requisitions, travel requests, etc., for compliance with federal export control regulations, where errors in judgment can result in significant negative impact to the Laboratory.
Assist with internal and external assessments of the EC Program, including risk assessments and EC Program compliance audits.
Provide leadership and influence with peer groups, (i.e. ECCO, UC Export Control Workgroup).
Bachelor's degree in International Trade, Security Management, Criminal Justice, Business, Education, related field or equivalent experience
Minimum 10 years of relevant professional work experience
Demonstrated ability using professional concepts and objectives to resolve complex issues in creative and effective ways.
Excellent analytical skills to handle complex issues where analysis of situations or data requires in-depth evaluation of variable and technical factors.
Ability to determine methods and procedures on new assignments, and provide guidance to other personnel as necessary.
Strong written and verbal skills with a working knowledge of various sponsors, governmental, statutory, University of California, and Laboratory procedures and requirements.
Demonstrated ability to foster relationships with internal/external customers, University of California and stakeholders.
Direct experience-making export control determinations, applying for licenses, and communicating with federal agencies.
Knowledge of the databases and electronic systems required to implement regulations (Visual Compliance, DS- 4076 CJ Determination Form, SNAP-R, D-Trade).
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Advanced degree in a related field
Prior experience in a federally funded Laboratory environment preferred.
Professional license and/or certification.
This is a full-time, career position that is appointed by and serves at the discretion of the Laboratory Director, and this appointment is at will and may be terminated at any time with or without cause.
Full-time, M-F, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
Salary is commensurate with experience.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.
Work will be primarily performed at: Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, 1 Cyclotron Road, Berkeley, CA.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
