  • In addition this individual will assist in evaluation of material specifications and operations procedures to support both production and R&D

  • This individual should be able to leverage their experience and engineering judgment to apply multiple analytical techniques to challenging metallurgical problems and provide critical solutions

  • The candidate will support the development of material properties data that could support design guides, production qualification and certification, as well as process development

  • The candidate will service as a technical liaison between product engineers and the analytical labs

  • The successful candidate will enhance the capabilities of additive manufacturing technologies used at the site, working within a multi-disciplinary organization and leveraging industry standards

  • Extensive working knowledge of the application of ASTM standards to mechanical testing as well as the influence of process and microstructure on the mechanical properties of metals

  • Working knowledge of materials characterization methods needed to identify microstructures and conduct fractography in support of R&D and product failure analysis

  • Some domestic travel (< 10%)

  • May perform other duties as required

You Must Have:

  • U.S. Citizen in order to obtain a DOE “Q” level clearance

  • Bachelor's Degree or higher in Engineering (ABET accredited), Physics, Science or related technical/scientific field
