What You Will Do:
Implement Berkeley Lab's Export Compliance Program by providing support for all export control activities, including export classification, transaction screening, export licensing, deemed exports, third-party management, IT systems and technology transfer, record retention, international travel, collaborations, purchasing activities and visiting students and scholars.
Classify a wide variety of products, technology, software and services to determine the export jurisdiction and classification.
Assist in developing and implementing applicable policies, procedures, tools and resources to enhance the ECP.
Conduct export control reviews of contracts, research proposals, and other agreements (e.g., Material Transfer, Non-disclosure, service and purchase agreements).
Assist with internal and external audits and assessments and implement any necessary remediation actions.
Effectively draft and submit export licenses, commodity jurisdictions, commodity classifications, advisory opinions and general correspondence to government agencies.
Work collaboratively with Berkeley Lab Divisions, Laboratory Export Control Liaisons, and other stakeholders, such as University of California and U.S. Department of Energy, to address export control matters.
Prepare and deliver ongoing training and guidance to Laboratory staff and management with a wide spectrum of functions.
What is Required:
Bachelor's degree in International Trade, Criminal Justice, Business Administration, Engineering or a related technical field and a minimum of 5 years' experience in export compliance; or Juris Doctorate degree and a minimum of 3 years' experience in export compliance; or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
Experience with U.S. trade regulations, including Export Administration Regulations, International Traffic in Arms Regulations, Nuclear Commission Regulations, Department of Energy Regulations and/or U.S. Sanctions Regulations.
Excellent analytical skills to handle moderately complex issues requiring in-depth evaluation of variables and technical factors.
Strong communication and interpersonal skills, including demonstrated ability to foster relationships with internal and external stakeholders and work effectively in a cooperative, team-oriented environment.
Ability to work independently with minimal oversight.
Knowledge of electronic systems, software and transaction screening tools used for export compliance (e.g., Visual Compliance, SNAP-R, D-Trade).
Prior experience in a federally funded Laboratory or University environment preferred.
This is a full-time career appointment, exempt (monthly paid) from overtime pay.
Classification will depend upon the applicant's level of skills, knowledge, and abilities.
This position may be subject to a background check. Any convictions will be evaluated to determine if they directly relate to the responsibilities and requirements of the position. Having a conviction history will not automatically disqualify an applicant from being considered for employment.

About Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
In the world of science, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) is synonymous with excellence. Thirteen scientists associated with Berkeley Lab have won the Nobel Prize. Fifty-seven Lab scientists are members of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), one of the highest honors for a scientist in the United States. Thirteen of our scientists have won the National Medal of Science, our nation's highest award for lifetime achievement in fields of scientific research. Eighteen of our engineers have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and three of our scientists have been elected into the Institute of Medicine. In addition, Berkeley Lab has trained thousands of university science and engineering students who are advancing technological innovations across the nation and around the world. Berkeley Lab is a member of the national laboratory system supported by the U.S. Department of Energy through its Office of Science. It is managed by the University of California (UC) and is charged with conducting unclassified research across a wide range of scientific disciplines. Located on a 200-acre site in the hills above the UC Berkeley campus that offers spectacular... views of the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley Lab employs approximately 4,200 scientists, engineers, support staff and students. Its budget for 2011 is $735 million, with an additional $101 million in funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, for a total of $836 million. A recent study estimates the Laboratory's overall economic impact through direct, indirect and induced spending on the nine counties that make up the San Francisco Bay Area to be nearly $700 million annually. The Lab was also responsible for creating 5,600 jobs locally and 12,000 nationally. The overall economic impact on the national economy is estimated at $1.6 billion a year. Technologies developed at Berkeley Lab have generated billions of dollars in revenues, and thousands of jobs. Savings as a result of Berkeley Lab developments in lighting and windows, and other energy-efficient technologies, have also been in the billions of dollars. Berkeley Lab was founded in 1931 by Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a UC Berkeley physicist who won the 1939 Nobel Prize in physics for his invention of the cyclotron, a circular particle accelerator that opened the door to high-energy physics. It was Lawrence's belief that scientific research is best done through teams of individuals with different fields of expertise, working together. His teamwork concept is a Berkeley Lab legacy that continues today.
