Who We Are:

As a recognized leader in space science research and spacecraft instrumentation, avionics, and electronics, we work to reveal the secrets of our solar system and the universe.

Objectives of this Role:

  • This position will participate in the research and development of experimental, laser-based, spaceflight instrumentation enabling in-situ geochronology investigations across the Solar System.
  • Work in multidisciplinary laboratory environment to design, build, and optimize novel spacecraft instrumentation for scientific missions to the moon and beyond.
  • Contribute to the design, development, and hands-on fabrication, assembly, integration, and test of instrumentation systems from concept to flight instrument delivery.
  • Support senior R&D personnel in cutting edge research involving pulsed lasers, mass spectrometry and high-speed data acquisition systems.
Daily and Monthly Responsibilities:
  • Work with scientific personnel to design, build, and test laser-based instrumentation capable of in-situ isotopic geochronology.
  • Hands-on work with of Class IIIb/Class IV pulsed and CW lasers, ultra-high vacuum systems, pressurized gases, cryogens and high-voltage systems.
  • Typical duties will involve the formulation and implementation of approaches to solving a wide array of experimental flight hardware problems - focused on the design, assembly and control of mechanical and electrical systems for data collection.
  • Collaborate in the design, fabrication and performance validation of various optomechanical systems and interfacing with external vendors to procure instrumentation hardware, system sub-components and laboratory test equipment.
  • Experimental data collection in an optical laboratory environment, LabView data acquisition and control system development, and CAD modeling of new hardware assemblies.
  • Requires a Bachelors, Masters or a PhD in Aerospace Engineering, Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Optical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Applied Physics or a related engineering field.
  • 1+ years: Experience with optomechanics, lasers, and high vacuum systems.
