MECHANICAL RESEARCH ENGINEER

Position Summary: The successful candidate will be challenged by a wide range of technologies employed on the fusion class OMEGA and OMEGA EP laser systems as well as collaboration with National Laboratories. These laser systems often demand designs that are high-precision, high-stability, and function in a class 100 cleanroom at either air or at vacuum. Design areas include laser system components, scientific diagnostic instruments, vacuum systems and cryogenic systems. The successful candidate must have a minimum of an MS in mechanical engineering and a minimum of 10 years of analytical and design experience. The job requires creative design with experimental and analytical approaches applied to research projects. The candidate must be able to work independently as well as function in a team environment interacting with leading fusion energy, nuclear, and plasma physics scientists. Essential experience for this position includes: Demonstrated theoretical and hands-on knowledge with both linear and non-linear computed aided engineering techniques in the areas of solid mechanics, heat transfer and vibrationFinite element analysis (FEA)Proficiency with 3-D CAD modelingAbility to prepare and present design reviewsGenerate design and requirements documentation Desired experience for this position includes: A working knowledge of ANSYS Mechanical and FluentComputational fluid dynamics (CFD)Performing vibration testing (Siemens LMS preferred)Working knowledge of Matlab/SimulinkInstrumentation and data acquisitionOpto-mechanical designElectro-mechanical designKinematic constraint design (Exact Constraint)Design troubleshooting, testing, and qualificationProject management Please apply to Job Opening ID 208125.
