United States - Nationwide
- Work must be performed by a U.S. person (e.g., U.S. citizen or permanent resident and certain others). Also, assignments longer than 179 days require a federal background investigation.
- PhD in a Physical Science (e.g., Physics, Chemistry, Earth Science, Materials Science, Astronomy, Astrophysics,) Engineering, or related field.
- Experience with in-situ measurements (e.g., optical/IR/UV/microwave/x-ray spectroscopies, x-ray diffraction or imaging, velocimetry, etc.), diagnostic development, data analysis, model development, or image processing.
- Experience with analytical techniques and tools, including computational simulations, to determine structure, thermomechanical properties (e.g., thermal or electrical conductivity, density, bulk modulus, etc.), or thermodynamic variables (e.g., temperature, pressure, etc.).
- Demonstrated capacity for conception, design, control, and execution of experiments.
- Proficient, collaborative verbal and written communication skills, as demonstrated by publication of peer-reviewed literature and presentations of research.
Qualifications We Desire
- Experience in one of the following areas: advanced manufacturing; materials science; strain and failure modeling; High Energy Density Science, high-pressure or high-temperature science (dynamic or static), matter and/or materials at extreme conditions, interiors of planets and exoplanets, giant impacts, spectroscopic methods, or research at large scale facilities such as synchrotrons, gas guns, or pulsed-power machines.
- Experience with computer programming with an emphasis on developing custom analytical routines or experience with developing new experimental techniques and/or computer algorithms.
- Experience working on highly multidisciplinary teams.
