POSITION: Software Developer

 

Scope

The selected candidates will support new and on-going research and development projects. The selected candidates will contribute to the design and analysis of structural mechanical, energetic, magneto-hydrodynamic, thermal, or thermo-mechanical systems, with emphasis on state-of-the art computational techniques. The work will be in support of research and development projects, as well as programmatic deliverables.  Under direction, selected candidates will apply comprehensive knowledge of dynamic, structural, fluid, and/or thermal computer codes to independently contribute to technical projects.

Responsibilities

  • Perform and document static, dynamic, modal, hydrodynamic, magneto-hydrodynamic, thermal, and/or multi-physics analyses
  • Simulate and evaluate system response and performance to support or guide design, testing, modification, and optimization
  • Contribute to the development of finite element and other models of mechanical systems to aid in the design process, specifically material selection, and detailed specification of design geometry
  • Support analysis quality practices including process standardization, configuration management of analysis files and software, verification, and validation
  • Work with other analysts, code developers, engineers, and subject matter experts to solve technical problems
  • Follow established procedures and prepare safety and engineering documentation
  • Contribute to the fulfillment of technical projects and organizational objectives
  • Report technical approaches and publish as appropriate
  • Participate in formal design reviews as required
  • Work independently and with teams to solve complex engineering analysis problems

 

Qualifications for this position include:

  • MS or PhD degree in Mechanical or Civil Engineering, or equivalent level of demonstrated knowledge
  • Fundamental knowledge of elasticity, plasticity, failure, and heat transfer in engineering materials/structures
  • Knowledge of materials properties and associated analytical models used in mechanical engineering problem solving
  • Experience with engineering analysis using dynamic, structural, fluid, and/or thermal computer codes
  • Demonstrated ability to work independently and collaboratively
  • Demonstrated organizational and interpersonal skills
  • Fundamental verbal and written communication skills necessary to interact with a multi-disciplinary research team, author technical and scientific reports and papers, document analyses, and deliver scientific presentations

Additional skills:

  • Knowledge of nuclear weapon system mechanical design details and materials
  • Experience with FEM codes, ABAQUS, ANSYS, NASTRAN, ALE3D, Cosmos, and/or Pro/E
  • Experience programming with Matlab, Perl, Python, C, and/or Fortran
  • Experience in material, modal, vibration, impact, thermal, hydrodynamic, or magneto-hydrodynamic test related activities such as experimental design, instrumentation, data processing, or comparison of test and analysis
  • Experience with uncertainty quantification or statistics
  • Knowledge of advanced constitutive models for metals, composites, ceramics, foams, geologic materials, or polymers including hyper elasticity, viscoelasticity, creep, plasticity, damage, fatigue, aging, fracture, thermal effects, anisotropy, in homogeneity, and/or probabilistic characterization

POSITION: Structural Engineer

 

Scope
