We are looking for exceptional engineers with experience and interest in materials science, metallurgy, and structural mechanics as they apply to design. The ideal candidate will have the passion, creativity, and skills to support a broad range of R&D in a multi-disciplinary environment. The successful candidate will provide the materials science expertise needed to ensure that innovative designs will meet high performance requirements in demanding environments. Projects begin with concept development and proceed through analysis, mechanical design, fabrication, and testing leading to development of prototypes, commercial products, and deployed systems.
As a Mechanical & Materials Design Engineer, the focus will be on material selection, modeling, characterization, and applying these efforts directly to the design of thermal-fluid and electro-mechanical systems. Typical design challenges include high-temperature creep of superalloy heat exchangers, cyclic plasticity and fatigue of a range of materials, heat treatment procedures, corrosion protection, brazing, welding metallurgy, technical ceramics and CMCs, and exotic materials. Familiarity with common metallurgical practices and laboratory techniques is ideal: metallographic and fractographic interpretation, microstructural development, phase kinetics, etc.
Key Elements of the Position
Variety of Projects. Work on several “clean-sheet” R&D projects at a time. Example current/past projects: compact, high-temperature heat exchangers, spacecraft cryogenic systems, compact combustors, vacuum pumps for Mars rovers, aerosol devices for administering pharmaceuticals, liquid nitrogen cooling systems for cutting tools, precision scroll pumps, and turbines with shaft speeds greater than 500,000 rpm.
Challenging and Interesting Work. Use your knowledge of materials science, metallurgy, statics, dynamics, fluid flow, heat transfer, and mechanical design to develop fabrication processes and design, build, and test experimental hardware, working prototypes, and specialized products.
Talented and Creative Colleagues. Team with other creative Engineers and highly capable support staff (Designers/Drafters, Mechanical Technicians, Precision Machinists). Project teams are small and highly interdisciplinary.
New England College Town. Our location offers exceptional opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast, excellence in schools and medical centers, and proximity to Dartmouth College. Additionally, NH has no State sales or income tax!
The ideal candidate will bring excellent academic credentials (BSME or MSME), the ability to design for a wide range of fabrication processes, capabilities in FEM and CAD, and excellent attention to detail, accuracy, and communication. Three years industrial experience required.
U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents only.
