Job ID: 6423Start Date: 10/03/2018End Date: 10/02/2019
Who May Apply: US Citizens In order to qualify, you must meet the education and epxerience requirements described below. Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional; philanthropic; religious; spiritual; community; student; social). You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Your resume must clearly describe your relevant experience; if qualifying based on education, your transcripts will be required as part of your application. Additional information about transcripts is in this document. In addition to meeting the basic requirement under Education below, to qualify for this position you must also meet the qualification requirements for each grade as listed: For the GS-11 level:
Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes developing and assisting with the development of electrical design plans and specifications for features common to industrial facilities; investigating and determining the causes of failures in electrical systems; preparing technical correspondence pertaining to the phases of electrical design; developing plans and details, specifications, and studies as part of a multidisciplinary project design team. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the second lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-09). OR Education: Ph.D. or equivalent doctoral degree or 3 full years of progressively higher level graduate education leading to such a degree in a field which demonstrates the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to do the work of the position, such as Electrical Engineering. OR Combination of Education and Experience: A combination of education and experience may be used to qualify for this position as long as the computed percentage of the requirements is at least 100%. To compute the percentage of the requirements, divide your total months of experience by 12. Then divide the total number of completed graduate semester hours (or equivalent) beyond the second year (total graduate semester hours minus 36) by 18. Add the two percentages. For the GS-12 level: Specialized Experience: One year of specialized experience which includes developing electrical design plans and specifications for power distribution and control systems for industrial facilities; developing electrical design computations; investigating electrical equipment failures and recommending corrective action; evaluating designs submitted by others; reviewing electrical shop drawings as well as material and equipment lists for continuity with established plans and specifications; leading multidisciplinary project design teams in the development of plans, specifications, and studies for engineering projects. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service (GS-11). Some federal jobs allow you to substitute your education for the required experience in order to qualify. For this job at the GS-12 level, you must meet the qualification requirement using experience alone–no substitution of education for experience is permitted.
