Space Thermal Engineer

Company Name: MIT Lincoln Laboratory

Location: Lexington, MA, US - 02420

Job Duration: 2021-04-07 to 2021-05-07

Overview

The Structural & Thermal-Fluids Engineering Group supports the development of prototype systems through the integration of advanced technologies and multidisciplinary engineering solutions with a focus on innovative structures and optomechanical systems, state-of-the-art thermal-fluid heat exchangers, novel aerodynamic platforms, and the development and utilization of advanced materials. Engineering solutions are optimized using multi-disciplinary simulations, materials characterization testing, and state-of-the-art environment test capabilities to meet ever increasing performance, size, weight, and environmental challenges. The Group provides support to all the technology development efforts across the Laboratory including undersea laser communication terminals, ground-based radio and optical telescopes, high-power phased radar arrays, high energy laser systems, airborne ISR and IR tracking sensors, hypersonic vehicles, and spaceborne imaging systems.

The Group is seeking engineers with expertise in thermal management solutions for sea, ground, air, and space-based payloads. Specific experience with developing thermal architectures for space based systems, including a background with modeling and simulation of the space environment, as well as hardware characterization testing is desired. The successful candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary engineering team contributing to the development of operational prototype hardware, spanning the full program life cycle from concept development to on-orbit test. The position may require special security clearances and travel to meetings and field sites.

 

Requirements: Ph.D. in Mechanical, Aerospace, or Civil Engineering. Candidates with a Master’s Degree and 5 years of direct relevant experience will also be considered. The ability to work in interdisciplinary teams, experience with modern numerical simulation tools, and testing experience is highly desired.  Candidate must be able to clearly communicate results in oral presentations and written reports.
