Aerospace or Mechanical Engineer

PSI - Boston, MA

Physical Sciences Inc., located north of Boston, in Andover, MA, seeks experienced Aerospace or Mechanical Engineers to conduct research and development of innovative technologies for thermal, fluid dynamic, heat engine, and refrigeration systems. Our focus is on prototypes and early-stage technology demonstrations in varied applications from squad-level soldier borne technologies to fluid flow on submarines to on-helicopter combat thermal management.

We currently need individuals with strong educational and work experience background in thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. Our multidisciplinary 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 scramjet ducts, cubesat payloads, spaceborne and airborne antennas, high-performance compact heat exchangers, and hypersonic vehicle components.

We seek an engineer with educational or experiential background in systems engineering as well as the disciplines listed above. An ability to realize new systems from clean-sheet analytical design through implementation and testing will be critical.

The successful candidate will have worked in one or more of the following areas: additive manufacturing, heat exchangers, rocket development, gas turbine engines, piston engines, spacecraft design and manufacturing, radar antenna design and manufacturing. 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 with 5 years’ experience in Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering is required.

US Citizenship is required.
