Personnel Requirements, Education, and Training for Civilian Nuclear Activities, 1984-2000. Executive Summary.
This report provides projections of the employment of scientists, engineers, technicians, and other occupations for the civilian nuclear industry through the year 2000. Low, medium, and high projections are provided. In all cases, a substantial number of job openings are anticipated to fill needs created by employment growth, retirement, death, and occupational mobility. The expected adequacy of supply to fill these positions is assessed after taking into account projections of college enrollments and degrees along with competing labor demand from nuclear defense, defense waste management, weapons development, non-nuclear defense activities, and other highly technical industries. The likelihood for shortages is high in certain fields. Positions for engineers (particularly nuclear engineers), health physicists, health physics technicians, and electronic technicians will be the most difficult to fill. (Author)
