Are you a physical scientist or engineer skilled in computational modeling?
Do you have an interest in solving critical challenges for our nation?
If so, we're looking for someone like you to join our team of scientists and engineers dedicated to applying space-based technology in the defense of our nation. Our group is a dynamic mix of experts with the combined capability to develop a space-based sensing network, apply it to a complex problem, and analyze the results from end-to-end.
We are seeking an engineer or scientist to conduct hypervelocity impact simulations and compare to data.
You should have proven skills in physics-based model development and a dream to solve the nation's challenges.
As a member of our Modeling Team:
- Your primary responsibility will be to use state-of-the-art physics-based models to simulate the results of hypervelocity impacts.
- You will run simulations on high performance computing clusters and analyze results.
- You will apply your technical creativity and scientific knowledge to determine where model improvements are required, and how to implement them in our models.
You meet our minimum qualifications for the job if you:
- Have a M.S. in physical science or engineering plus 4 years experience.
- Have experience describing real-world phenomena with physics-based models.
- Have experience running and analyzing codes with high performance computing clusters.
- Hold an active Secret or higher security clearance (or have the ability to obtain one prior to starting). If selected, you will be subject to a government security investigation and need to meet the requirements for access to classified information. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship.
You'll go above and beyond our minimum requirements if you:
- Have a Ph.D. in physical science, engineering, or applied mathematics.
- Have previous experience with hydrocode modeling of hypervelocity impacts.
- Hold an active Top Secret/SCI clearance.
