The National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL) at NIST has two position announcements (NISTEL-2012-0012 and NISTEL-2012-0013) posted on www.usajobs.gov for research structural engineers. Applications for these announcements must be submitted prior to the closing date of April 19, 2012. The research structural engineers will play a critical role in building a vibrant experimentally-driven research program on fire resistance of real-scale structures using the NFRL, a new unique experimental facility nearing completion on the NIST Gaithersburg, MD campus.
