Group 71—Mechanical Engineering
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 environmentaland 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 lead the mechanical design, analysis and testing of ground-based, airborne, and space-based 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 mechanical design of structures, mechanisms, optical systems, and electrical systems.  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, analysis, assembly, and test personnel. The position may require special security clearances and travel to meetings and field sites.


Requirements: Demonstrated experience in mechanical design and analysis of complex opto-mechanical, mechanism, or  electro-mechanical systems that must function in harsh environments, such as orbital or high altitude aircraft, is highly desired.  Must be able to work collaboratively in a team environment and demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills.


PhD in Mechanical, Aerospace, or Civil Engineering with expertise in mechanical design and analysis. In lieu of a PhD a MS with 10+ years of applicable experience will be considered.
