Duration: 12 Months

Job Description
Major purpose: Job Description:
Client has an opportunity for a Senior Specialist level Thermal Analyst to join our talented engineering organization. Senior Specialist engineers are technical leaders across multidisciplinary teams of engineers to create the best overall system design including thermal design, analysis, and test of optical systems operating in harsh space and ground environments. Senior Specialist engineers possess in-depth understanding of aerospace thermal engineering technology and payload architectures for spacecraft sub-systems and instruments. These talents are used to direct and oversee teams who specialize in conductive, convective, and radiative analyses, understanding of heat pipes, radiative heat transfer, and thermal control hardware design (thermal blankets, surface treatments, heater tapes, thermistors) and the interaction with optical structures in order to minimize optical errors, and achieve operational temperatures. Senior Specialist engineers proficiently utilize state of the art custom software in conjunction with Thermal Desktop and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) packages and often mentor other Thermal Analysts in the use of such tools.

Major functions: Essential Functions:
Knowledge of system level thermal design & development, payload level integration and test, and risk mitigation for space-based environments
Perform thermal design and analysis tasks on complex mechanical hardware including precision mechanisms, electro-mechanical devices, aerospace mechanism design, complex electronics packaging, supporting space-based deployable mechanisms, avionics, innovative thermal and ground based systems
Create and analyze design concepts using FEA & thermal analysis software.
Program support also includes requirements derivation and verification, system architecture development, loads derivation, trade studies, design sensitivity/optimization studies, preliminary and final design analysis, generation of analysis documentation (including presentation materials, and deliverable data packages), and leading system test activities
Organization of thermal design and analysis as an IPT lead; frequently interfacing directly with customer technical leads and management.
Documenting and presenting design & analysis results to customers at formal gate and design reviews.
Development of thermal test plans to manufacture and test payload sensor systems
Support new business opportunities and mentor junior level staff
Work multiple tasks in a fast-paced environment and adapt quickly to changing situations

Education/Experience/Licenses etc.:
6+ years with a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering or other related engineering or science degree required or 4+ years of experience with a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering or other related engineering or science degree
Proficiency in thermal analysis tools such as Thermal Desktop (preferred), Sinda, Thermal Fluent, Icepak, etc.
Experience with thermal vacuum testing
Active TS/SCI clearance required

Preferred Additional Skills:
Experience with thermal analysis of mechanical and electronic systems, in space, air or ground environments
Strong analytical skills with emphasis on using and/or directing finite element analysis (FEA)
Experience with finite element analysis software
Able to support design decisions with well documented engineering analyses and calculations
Able to analyze problems and to focus and drive down to the root cause of problems quickly
Experience as a lead engineer, project engineer, or IPT lead is a plus.
Experience with Microsoft office tools, Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
