Sound professional judgment, initiative and problem-solving skills to analyze existing processes and procedures, develop recommendations, craft innovative solutions, and implement improvements.
Excellent communications skills. Demonstrated skills in writing technology architecture documents, functional requirements documents, communications to various audiences, and administrative documents, diagrams, and reports that are concise, logical, and grammatically correct; excellent technical writing skills.
Proven diplomacy and collaborative work skills to build successful working relationships and gain cooperation from a wide range of scientific, management, administrative and HR staff, and international researchers to successfully pursue objectives.
Ability to achieve and maintain specialized working knowledge of UC, LBNL, Berkeley Site Office, Office of Science, DOE, and DHS policies, procedures, and requirements as related to security program planning and management. Familiarity with After Action Reports, Corrective Action Plans, and Corrective Action Tracking System.
Ability to conceptualize and develop presentations on areas of responsibility; assist in briefing mid- to senior-level management and executive staff, DOE auditors and inspectors, and representatives from other national laboratories or agencies.
Availability to work extended days, nights, weekends, and holidays to conduct investigations, monitor performance, respond to any incident or event affecting the safety and security of Lab personnel, property, and/or the environment, and ensure program compliance and success, if needed.
Additional Desired Qualifications:
Experience with Lenel OnGuard and Genetec security software.
Working knowledge in the areas of information technology n-tier architecture, IP networking, SQL query use, inter-application communication and data exchange, and endpoint device operations in a security technology environment.
Broad knowledge of Protective Force, Foreign Visits & Assignments, Site Access, and radio communication operations at a U.S. DOE site, as well as applicable requirements and directives.
Prior DOE/DOE contractor experience highly desirable. Familiarity with DOE policies, orders, manuals, etc.
Knowledge of the processes and policies of the federal, state, and private agencies that impact the Lab's Safeguards and Security program.
This is a full-time career appointment, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
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.
