The Structural & Thermal-Fluids Engineering Group provides innovative multidisciplinary engineering solutions though the development of advanced mechanical and aerospace technologies for sea, ground, air, and space-based prototype systems for national security applications. Examples include the development of structural-material systems for spaceborne imaging and laser communication terminals, heat exchangers for high-flux laser and RF solid-state devices, and aerodynamic designs and multifunctional materials for UAV platforms. New technologies and engineering solutions are developed through high-fidelity models and multidisciplinary simulations, environmental and materials characterization testing, and advanced materials to optimize solutions to meet ever increasing performance, size, weight, and environmental challenges. The Group is seeking candidates with a degree in mechanical and/or aerospace engineering desiring to work in the fields of thermal, aerodynamics, or structural engineering. Candidates should have a background or strong interests in one or more of the following: a) Thermal Engineering - provide thermal management solutions, predict performance using models and simulations, and perform thermal characterization testing; b) Aerodynamics Engineering - provide estimates of forces and flow features using CFD, assess the impact of payloads on vehicle stability and handling, provide design guidance on vehicle designs, and support aerodynamics testing activities; c) Structural Engineering - develop high efficiency structures using finite element analysis and design optimization, perform vibration, shock, and modal testing, possess familiarity with additive manufacturing, multifunctional structures, composite structures, and advanced materials. The successful candidate will be a part of an interdisciplinary engineering team from concept development to integration and testing in the development of operational prototype hardware. The position may require special security clearances and travel to meetings and field sites. Requirements:M.S.
