Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce.

    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.

    In this position, you will furnish advisory, planning, and reviewing services on health physics programs; and the investigation and evaluation of complex technical problems. Typical assignments include:

    • Preparing for and responding to naturally occurring and man-made emergencies involving nuclear or radioactive material.
    • Coordinating and collaborating directly with headquarters and other regional Health Physicists to ensure consistency in program development and delivery.
    • Coordinating the review, analysis and approval of emergency preparedness guidance.
    • Providing technical advice during nuclear and radiological emergencies and exercises.
