Title: Acoustic Data Research Engineer ATAS Cobb 1380
JobID: 1380
Location: Smyrna, GA
Description:

Title: Research Engineer/Scientist I/II

Position: Full-Time Research Faculty

Level:

 

Primary Location: Cobb County Research Facility (Smyrna, GA)

Travel Required: 20%

Lab: ATAS - 1380

Job Description: This position is for a mid level researcher role in ATAS' Aerospace and Acoustics Technologies Division (AATD).  Primary roles and responsibilities include acoustic data aqusition and aeroacoustic analysis, prototype design and fabrication, and modeling and simulation.  Example tasks include conducting aeroacoustic testing (in the field, in onsite wind tunnel and anechoic facilities), sensing payload design and integration (onto UAV and launch vehicle platforms), and using Matlab for indepth acoustic data analysis (including signal processing, filter design, acoustic signal characterization, sensor response characterization, acoustic signal acquisition and characterization).  Familiarity in signal processing, aeromechanical concepts (with specific focus on UAV, missile, and rocket propulsion systems), flight test engineering support, and sensing instrumentation operation is necessary.  Background in destructive, non-destructive, and modeling/analytics of launch systems (including rocket launch vehicles, missiles, turbojets, and other aerospace propulsion systems) preferred.  Experience in Solidworks mechanical design and general aerospace design and field testing desirable.  Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) capabilities of interest supplamenting above skills.

 

 

 

Education:

  • Research Engineer/Scientist/Technologist II
  • A Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or a related area and three (5) years of relevant full-time experience after completion of degree,
