Idaho National Laboratory Recruiting for Fall Computer Science Internship

Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is seeking an undergraduate (junior complete minimum) or graduate student to assist in completing and enhancing the Health Risk Assessment (HRA) Data Program – Scenario Authoring, Characterization and Debriefing (SACADA) web-based software tool the INL Human Factors, Controls & Statistics department has been creating and piloting for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This tool enables trainers and operators who just completed simulation exercises to capture the essence of their successful and less than successful performance by interacting with the software. The tool also enables the instructors to author and characterize the training scenarios and generate reports for use at the plant. Finally, the tool enables the NRC to extract human performance (success and failure data) and the contexts under which the performance occurred. This will enable the NRC to shore up human reliability estimation methods, verifying or establishing anchor values and ranges. The internship participant will need advanced web‐development skills, understanding of software engineering and development methods, commitment to and expertise in using agile methods to plan work including the tracking and fixing defects and in adding refinements/enhancements. The specific database being used is SQL-Server. The programming environment is C# (.net) with heavy and advanced use of JavaScript and several commercial tools sets (Telerik, SynchFusion, Forum, and a SpellChecker app). Experience with programmer documentation, user interface development and report generation data exporting will be greatly valued.

To be considered for an internship, applicants must apply on‐line against the primary internship posting at www.inl.gov/careers.
