Masters

Physical Sciences Inc., located north of Boston in Andover, MA, seeks experienced mechanical engineers to conduct research and development of innovative technologies for structural, thermal, and mechanical systems. Our focus is on prototypes and early-stage pilot-program demonstrations in varied applications from cubesats to squad-level technologies to micro-engines.

We currently need individuals with strong educational and work experience background in materials and structures and thermodynamics. Our multi-disciplinary team tackles different challenges on a weekly basis, so the ability to re-orient to new challenges and analyze from first principles is critical. The suite of technologies under development includes spaceborne and airborne antennas, deployable casualty evacuation litters and high-performance compact heat exchangers.

The ideal candidate will have worked with one or more of the following: spacecraft design and manufacturing, radar antenna design and manufacturing, composites fabrication, additive manufacturing, heat exchangers, or gas turbine engines. Knowledge of machining, heat treating, advanced manufacturing techniques (laser cutting, 3D printing, EDM, e-beam welding etc.) is a plus. Experience with data acquisition, Python/MATLAB, SolidWorks (or other CAD), and prototype assembly/fabrication are desired.

PhD or Master’s degree in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering with experience or Bachelor’s degree with significant experience required. We are currently seeking candidates with at least 5 years of industry resume experience.

US Citizenship is required.
