The W80 Systems Engineering Department has stockpile stewardship responsibility for the W80 and W84 warheads. The W80-0,1 is the warhead for the Navy Tomahawk and the Air Force's ALCM cruise missiles. The President's Annual Assessment Report drives Sandia to increase yearly its technical basis of the safety and reliability of the warhead. Specifically the team is focused on understanding the "design margin" of the fielded weapon through driving the system to failure. This knowledge is used to adjust annual surveillance activities. Through these efforts we are breaking new ground in our knowledge of the weapon, and focusing this knowledge to critically evaluate the performance of the weapon.

Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q-level security clearance.
Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.
Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or veteran status.
