About Our Team

The Interns for Security, Arms Control, and Force Protection Engineering (iSAFE) program gives students the opportunity to develop next-generation systems for compelling national security missions. Interns work on complex and challenging problems to develop novel technologies and lower the risk posed by high-consequence events, such as cyber-attack, nuclear and biological proliferation, terrorist threats, catastrophic incidents, and potentially destabilizing events. iSAFE projects range from small R&D efforts to large, multidisciplinary team collaborations and many are a crossover between physical and cyber security. Sponsored by Sandia's Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Division, iSAFE offers technical mentors and projects in critical asset protection and security, weapon and force protection, and nonproliferation and cooperative threat reduction. The mission of iSAFE is to contribute to national security through the effective use of science, technology and full-spectrum system solutions to lower the risk posed by high-consequence events.

Security Clearance

This position does not currently require a Department of Energy (DOE) security clearance.

Sandia will conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Furthermore, employees in New Mexico need to pass a U.S. Air Force background screen for access to Kirtland Air Force Base. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause access to be denied or terminated, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.

If hired without a clearance and it subsequently becomes necessary to obtain and maintain one for the position, or you bid on positions that require a clearance, a pre-processing background review may be conducted prior to a required federal background investigation. Applicants for a DOE security clearance need to be U.S. citizens. 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.

Members of the workforce (MOWs) hired at Sandia and will require uncleared access for greater than 179 during their employment, are required to go through the Uncleared Personal Identity Verification (UPIV) process. Access includes physical and/or cyber (logical) access, remote access to any NNSA information technology (IT) systems. UPIV requirements are not applicable to individuals who require a DOE personnel security clearance for the performance of their SNL employment or to foreign nationals. The UPIV process will include the completion of a USAccess Enrollment, SF-85 (Questionnaire for Non-Sensitive Positions) and OF-306 (Declaration of Employment). An unfavorable UPIV determination will result in immediate retrieval of the SNL issued badge, removal of cyber (logical) access and/or removal from SNL subcontract. All MOWs may appeal the unfavorable UPIV determination to DOE/NNSA immediately. If the appeal is unsuccessful, the MOW may try to go through the UPIV process one year after the decision date.

EEO

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.
