Immediate opening – Good pay and benefits, excellent work environment. Significant experience in field necessary:
A U.S. nuclear-powered submarine collided with a Japanese oil tanker in the Straits of Hormuz, through which 40 percent of the world’s oil supplies travel, officials said.
No one was hurt in the accident that happened Monday night in the 34-mile wide straits, which are bordered by Iran and Oman and serve as the entrance to the Persian Gulf.
Damage to the fast-attack USS Newport News submarine and the supertanker was light and there was no resulting spill of oil or leakage of nuclear fuel, officials from the U.S. Navy and the Japanese government said.
Both ships remained able to navigate, Navy officials said.
The successful candidate will have a technical undergraduate degree, a master’s level equivalent in nuclear engineering, two decades of management and leadership experience, excellent communication and interpersonnel skills, a highly-honed appreciation for advanced undersea weapons systems and tactics and a sound knowledge of the International and Inland Rules of the Road.
Exceptional good luck a plus.
