This unique opportunity is part of the Mechanical Fabrication and Test Section which maintains technical support facilities and resources that provide the services required to fabricate, assemble, and test electro-mechanical developmental and flight hardware.
- Assess configuration, operability and safety risk of each pressure system per JPL/NASA standards
- Perform engineering analyses and life assessments on a variety of pressure systems using the appropriate consensus code (i.e. ASTM, ASME, API, MIL)
- Advise Laboratory personnel on material selection and system configuration during design phase of pressure system based on advanced
- practical knowledge of national consensus code requirements and inherent understanding of pressure system safety
- Provide direction and mentoring to other personnel within the organization in the area of pressure system engineering
- Participate in Laboratory safety meetings as a subject matter expert in the area of pressure systems safety (including hydrogen and acutely hazardous gas safety)
- Advanced knowledge of ASME Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Codes, Cal/OSHA Unified Pressure Vessel Code, hydrogen systems, acutely hazardous gas systems, cryogenic systems, hazardous materials, and federal, state, and local regulatory compliance requirements
- Ability to effectively interface with multiple levels of management, operations personnel and technical experts
- Broad understanding of Non-Destructive Testing methods to include Visual Testing (VT), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), Radiographic Testing (RT), or Penetrant Testing (PT)
- Prefer Certified Safety Professional (CSP), and/or Professional Engineer (PE) with extensive design experience and working knowledge in pressure systems engineering
Qualification & Experience:
- Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering or a related technical discipline with typically a minimum of 6 years of related experience; Master’s degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 4 year of related experience; or PhD in similar disciplines with a minimum of 2 years of experience.
- Must be a communicator and analyst of pressurized systems with the ability to think both within and beyond the codes associated with those systems and effectively communicate requirements and solutions to a diverse customer base
- Must be computer literate and experienced in the use of CAD or similar drafting software and MS office programs
- Must have advanced knowledge and demonstrated experience with pressurized system design, operation and/or safety, and experience interpreting/applying ASME Pressure Vessel and Piping Codes.
