The Electrical Engineering (EE) Section of the Materials and Process Engineering Department is seeking an individual to fulfill the role of Senior Electronic Materials Failure Analyst. This position supports the EE section in its mission of performing electronic materials failure analysis and component evaluation. The devices submitted for analysis range from simple passive devices to complex, custom microcircuits as well cables, connectors, magnetics and electro-magnetics. The position requires knowledge of the materials of electrical components, including ceramics and glasses, metal wire bonding, component staking, conformal coating, and solder.
The position requires the ability to work through each step of an analysis, from initial evaluation, photo-documentation, electrical test, destructive testing and writing a final report that substantiates any failure conclusions. The position requires being able to determine the root cause of failures using the available laboratory equipment. This includes digital photo-documentation, various electrical component test equipment, Sono-scan, SEM-EDS, and various destructive techniques.
The position requires the ability to work on several analyses in parallel. To work with members of the other sections in the department with areas of expertise in materials and chemistry. This involves teaming with them to support your analysis and to support theirs in turn. The position also requires working with Component Engineers, Program Chief Engineers, and Failure Investigation Teams / Failure Review Boards (FIT / FRB). This may also require periodic presentations to these entities or even Program / Missile Systems management. This position requires periodic travel
