Entry Level Materials Engineer
The successful candidate will join an exciting research and development area working to advance the state of the art of naval nuclear materials. The team includes a diverse set of engineers and scientists with extensive historical knowledge and many active research programs. The team includes a range of seniority from entry level to advisory engineers, allowing mentoring at all career stages. Work ranges from idea generation through factory implementation, as well as normal aspects of professional engineering discussed below.
The candidate will perform ceramic and materials engineering evaluations and analyses, and make engineering decisions for all aspects of assigned tasks. Cognizant areas may include planning, designing, modeling, analyzing, documenting, and testing of nuclear, mechanical, structural or electrical components, systems, equipment and facilities. Work may include ceramic, chemical or materials evaluations, design reviews, operations support, safety analysis, engineering methods and software development, and analysis of vendor's procedures and systems for quality control or manufacturing surveillance.
Work efforts will focus on the research and development of ceramic materials, fabrication methods and equipment for advanced nuclear materials. Work will be performed both in local laboratories with team mates as well as remotely through subcontracted efforts. The candidate will be required to learn associated technologies and research and testing history, then design experiments, equipment, procedures to pursue resolution of technical problems or potential improvements to current methods or products. The candidate will be expected to document work and results, give presentations as needed, and learn associated methods.
