Cryogenic Engineer / Engineering and Physical Sciences Researcher - Entry to Experienced Level

The National Security Agency
Fort Meade, MD 20755
As an Engineering and Physical Science professional, you will use your skills to create the systems and tools that will be used to enhance the operation of intelligence. You will advise, administer and perform scientific projects, such as planning, designing, and constructing specialized equipment, and ensuring adherence to sound engineering and scientific standards and principles. The NSA offers multiple areas of focus for facilities engineers, including computer, architectural, electrical, mechanical, and structural. In addition, we are seeking skills that include computer design, microelectronics, radio frequency design, and systems engineering. Apply your science and engineering skills to protect the nation.",

NSA is home to the largest, most established in-house research organization in the U.S. Intelligence Community, employing scientists with world-class skills in fields such as mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, and cybersecurity. We collaborate with leading companies, universities, and national laboratories to leverage work in overlapping disciplines, advance core capabilities, and seek out and develop revolutionary ideas that will provide our nation with an overwhelming advantage.

At the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS), our employees have incredible opportunities to work on revolutionary projects that will shape the future of computing. We look for people who have bold new ideas, courage and a pioneering spirit to join our team to invent that future. Our culture thrives on intellectual curiosity, cognitive diversity and bringing your whole self to work. We have an insatiable drive to do what others think is impossible. Our employees make history.

LPS is researching high performance computing systems to meet mission demands for a decade and beyond. The qualified individual will join our team to advance development of large-scale high performance computing systems with a focus on computer architectures, processing/memory subsystems, and transform computing beyond Moore's Law. You will work in a fast-paced team environment alongside physicists, engineers, computer scientists, and systems architects to make advanced processing solutions a reality.

The ideal candidate will have the ability to work with an integrated product team of multidisciplinary scientists and engineers to improve and develop cryogenic engineering processes; the desire and experience to direct the design, fabrication, implementation, and commissioning of vacuum cryostats, magnets, and other experimental cryogenic systems; and the knowledge to develop innovative solutions to improve and extend cryogenic engineering activities.

As a Cryogenic Engineer and member of the LPS Program Management team, you will push the frontiers of science and engineering by leveraging your expertise, ideas, and vision to:

- Direct and organize cryogenic system design, fabrication, assembly, and implementation
- Direct and organize integration of cryostat subsystems including cooling, interconnects, ultra-high-vacuum (UHV), magnets, shielding, vibration and other support elements
- Direct and organize the performance of safety evaluations involving pressure, cryogenic, and other fluid systems
- Manage and support test development activities for cryogenic systems
- Identify research challenges
