Plan, organize, and lead the execution of maintenance outages including outages for regular maintenance (e.g. annual outages, repairs, preventive maintenance) and projects (e.g. facility/utility modifications and upgrades).
Coordinate with Facility Area Managers, Project Managers, and Construction Managers, and stakeholders to develop outage scope, execution plan, schedule, resource requirements, permit applications, commissioning plan, pre-job briefings, documentation, and close-out.
Manage the execution of maintenance and project outages (electrical, gas, air, water, etc.) to ensure they are well coordinated with all stakeholders to ensure overall safety, minimize impact to operations/science, and optimize the outage window.
Assemble, charter, and document roles and responsibilities of an outage management team consisting of representatives from key scientific and support organizations to ensure outages are well communicated and risks are identified and mitigated.
Review feasibility studies, cost estimates, risk analysis, design and other supporting documents.
Maintain and communicate a master schedule of planned outages and manage/coordinate outages to minimize impact to operations while meeting project milestones and deliverables.
Provide leadership and influence in the continuous development of outage management tools and processes through leveraging best practices and lessons learned.
What is Required:
A minimum of 7 years of experience in Outage Management or related technical field such as preventive/corrective maintenance planning and execution.
A minimum of 3 years of experience of maintenance, start-up, operations & shut-downs.
Solid understanding and knowledge of project management principles and practices.
Excellent oral and written communication skills including the ability to provide and present timely and relevant feedback/reporting to various stakeholders.
Proficient understanding of mechanical discipline drawings including P&IDs, piping isometrics, general arrangements, mechanical system drawings.
Demonstrated proficiency in the use of PC-based computer systems and software applications with an emphasis on Microsoft Excel, Word, and Project.
Experience in interfacing with contract craft personnel and equipment manufacturer field representatives.
Working knowledge of safety, health, and environmental requirements.

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.
