Job Description Summary:
Work in an exciting, fast-paced collaborative team environment which delivers cutting-edge simulation technology for training US Navy Nuclear Operators. Work involves performing engineering based evaluations, analyses, and software development for submarine propulsion plant systems; participation in design reviews; and providing operational support to existing and future simulators. Cognizant areas may include planning, designing, modeling, analyzing, documenting, and testing of shipboard mechanical, thermal, and hydraulic systems for use in Navy simulators.
This position will focus on the development and deployment of cutting-edge simulators to support the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program's submarine based training program. Some key elements of the work are the development and maintenance of real-time software models of nuclear plant systems, and the creation of software based training support tools. The successful candidate will use custom and commercial software packages to develop and maintain real-time models of fluid, control, thermal, and mechanical systems, which are used to drive nuclear propulsion plant simulators. This requires the candidate to learn propulsion plant system dynamics in order to provide software model support from conceptional design through final deployment. Responsibilities will also include verbal and written communication with peers, management, and customers. The candidate must be comfortable with learning and performing computer based modeling and have experience with one or more of the following languages; FORTRAN, C, Matlab, C++, C#, Python, or similar.
- BS degree in engineering or Bachelor's degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university and a minimum of four years relevant experience; or
- MS degree in engineering or Master's degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university and a minimum of two years relevant experience
- BS degree in engineering or Bachelor's degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university and a minimum of six years relevant experience; or
- MS degree in engineering or Master's degree in a science related field from an accredited college or university and a minimum of four years relevant experience
Job Preferred Skills
- Understanding of dynamic system modeling, especially in a real-time environment.
- Prior nuclear plant operations experience or an understanding of propulsion plant systems or plant system dynamics.
- Excellent teaming and interpersonal skills.
- Excellent written and oral communication skills.
- Leadership experience in a collaborative team environment.
- Demonstrated action-oriented, "can-do" attitude that shows initiative and ownership.
