Marine Corrosion Engineer Job
Date: Apr 24, 2013
Location: Washington, DC, US
The Energy, Environment and Infrastructure (E2I) Business Unit of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) is seeking a qualified Marine Corrosion Engineer who is an energetic and dedicated team player to join a dynamic and growing team committed to providing scientific solutions that make a difference. The ideal candidate will provide technical excellence, creativity, and initiative while interacting with laboratory staff, vendors, colleagues and clients in a positive and growth-oriented environment.
The candidate will be responsible for preparation, handling and characterization of metallographic samples. These metals undergo high temperature, high voltage, electromagnetic fields and phase transformation, and pose challenges in identification of dominant damage mechanisms over time and space. Moreover, moving contact, wear and electrical contact boundary conditions need to be taken into account. The position will involve both basic research and analysis support for a laboratory-scale demonstrator.
The ideal candidate will have a Bachelors in Materials Science, Mechanical engineering, Metallurgical engineering, Materials Engineering or a closely related field with 2+ years of post-degree materials characterization related research and/or experience. Or a Master's degree and 1+ years of experience.
The candidate should be familiar with an array of laboratory and analytical equipment consistent with fundamental and applied corrosion research. Sample preparation ability is a must, as is the ability to work closely with both theoreticians and engineers/scientists conducting related physical experiments. The candidate must be able to support multiple projects simultaneously as there are several projects within the division that may require attention over time. The preferred candidate will also have a demonstrated record of technical leadership and publications; excellent written and oral communication skills; experience in the development of research initiatives including grant and research proposal writing for work with governmental or industrial clients; experience in experimental research involving one or more of the areas listed above. The ideal candidate will work comfortably within a cross-disciplinary team in either leadership or supporting roles, by providing strong technical expertise and proposing new areas of scholarship. Additionally, personnel with NACE certifications or experience with shipboard and/or marine environment coating systems are STRONGLY encouraged to apply.
Due to Federal contract regulations, and the sensitivity of other customer related requirements, U.S. Citizenship is required. Additionally, the ability to obtain/maintain a secret clearance with access to applicable military installations is a condition of employment for any position noted in this opportunity. Actual work location may vary based on client considerations and specific contract deliverables.
