This position is contingent upon contract award and/or funding.
Mechanical engineer will work as part of an engineering team to develop mechanical solutions to a variety of problems including structural design, fluid flow, environmental survivability of structures and electronic modules and analysis (structural, shock, vibration, non-linear and composite material analysis). Mechanical design tasks may involve creating new designs or modifications to existing designs on a variety of naval, launching systems, and missile systems projects. Analysis tasks may include, but not be limited to performing finite element and classical stress analysis of various components and assemblies across multiple naval and other platforms; performing preliminary and final analyses, part sizing, fatigue/fracture assessment, drawing coordination and sign-off, test support and correlation, analysis presentations, and documentation of analyses for deliverable stress and fracture reports; and performing analysis of discrepant hardware, components, or assemblies during on-going assembly and integration activities. The individual will be expected to work collaboratively with mechanical engineers as well as representatives from Manufacturing, Quality, Drafting and other engineering disciplines. Knowledge of computer design and analysis tools, especially PRO/E, CREO, NASTRAN and ANSYS and experience working in a design for manufacturing environment are desirable.
The Locale: Middle River is an unincorporated community in Baltimore County, Maryland located on the Chesapeake Bay. It is located 10 minutes from Downtown Baltimore, featuring the famous Inner Harbor, National Aquarium, and Fort McHenry – the birth place of the Star Spangled Banner.

A one to four hour drive takes you to areas such as Washington, DC, Philadelphia, New York, as well as the Virginia/Maryland Eastern Shore, DelMarVa beaches, the Jersey shore, and West Virginia. Annapolis, Maryland, the state capital, is less than an hour away and while there a visit to the home of the United States Naval Academy or traveling the Baltimore and Annapolis bike/hiking trail is a must. Washington, DC is also within a 2 hour drive, featuring many of the national museums, monuments, and memorials as well as the renowned National Zoological Park. Due to the variety of topography, the state of Maryland is known as America In Miniature. This includes the beaches on the Eastern Shore to the marshlands to the mountains in Western Maryland. There are many activities to participate in including hiking/biking trails, league sports, white water rafting, fishing, skiing/snowboarding to name a few.
Skills in Engineering (i.e. Mechanical, Electrical or electronics, Systems Engineering, Project Engineering, Computer Science or Computer Engineering). Coursework in Math and Physics or other physical sciences.
An advanced degree in Mechanical Engineering or closely related technical field may be desired for this position
Working experience with PRO/E, CREO, NASTRAN and/or ANSYS applications.
Strong verbal and written communications skills.
Familiarity with standard Microsoft Office applications.
Demonstrated design and small project execution experience.
