Mechanical Engineer

The Mechanical Engineering Group focuses on developing innovative mechanical design solutions for ground, airborne, and spaceborne applications.  Areas of mechanical design expertise include large structures, composite structures, highly efficient lightweight structures, mechanisms, optomechanical systems, electro-optic systems, electronics packaging, and cabling. Engineers from the group are critical to all aspects of program execution beginning with conceptual design, continuing through detail design, system integration and test, and concluding with environmental and performance testing.  The group is the Engineering Division's center for 3D computer-aided design and configuration management.  Example projects include airborne and space-based laser communications systems, biological agent detectors and identifiers, and large radar antenna systems.
The successful candidate will work as part of a multidisciplinary team to provide support for the mechanical design, analysis and testing of complex mechanical, opto-mechanical and electro-mechanical systems. Responsibilities will include design, analyses, integration, and testing of complex hardware from conceptual design through fabrication and field performance evaluation. The candidate must be knowledgeable in a broad range of challenging problems involving structures, mechanisms, thermal systems, optics and electronics. The successful candidate will be expected to present the design concepts to both internal and external audiences. This position involves working in close-knit teams with design, analyses and test personnel. The position may involve travel to meetings and field sites.
Requirement:
Demonstrated experience in performing mechanical design and analysis of complex mechanical systems for DoD and aerospace applications. Opto-mechanical and or precision design experience for systems that must function in harsh environments, is highly desired. Must be able to work collaboratively in a team environment and demonstrate effective written and oral communication skill, and require little or no supervision.


MS in Mechanical Engineering plus 3 years minimum experience, or BS in Mechanical Engineering plus 5 years minimum experience.
