Overview: MPR Associates, Inc., is a thriving multi-discipline, specialty engineering services and consulting firm. We have exciting opportunities for experienced nuclear engineers to join our team. If you are seeking a unique, challenging, and rewarding career opportunity, MPR is the right company for you.
MPR solves challenging problems for clients in the fields of power and energy, federal services, and health and life sciences. We provide top-tier engineering services by focusing on first principles and relying on a team of multi-disciplined engineers with expertise in an array of technical areas. Nuclear engineers at MPR draw on all aspects of nuclear engineering, including neutronics modelling and simulation, thermal hydraulics, irradiation of materials, shielding, and radiation detection and measurement. MPR hires engineers from a wide variety of engineering disciplines including mechanical, chemical, civil, nuclear, materials, and electrical and expects all engineers to routinely work across multiple disciplines. Successful candidates see value in performing challenging technical work and have a desire for continuous learning including topics beyond nuclear engineering. While a nuclear engineer’s work at MPR will focus on nuclear-related tasks, the engineer will also be encouraged to expand their technical expertise to support MPR’s growing business divisions outside of nuclear engineering.
MPR seeks individuals with an interest in expanding their technical, leadership, and business capabilities. Expected career progression includes developing technical expertise, expanding leadership skills (e.g., project management, administrative supervision, and mentoring) and developing stronger business acumen (e.g., client relationships, and business development). We hire the best and brightest, which results in a high-performance culture built on trust and respect, making MPR an exceptional place to work.

Some of MPR’s projects provide opportunities for moderate amounts of domestic and international travel to client sites, test facilities or supplier’s facilities. Travel may also include visits between MPR’s three offices in Virginia, Connecticut or Massachusetts.
