The ideal candidate will have experience in propulsive technology for solid rocket motors, liquid rocket engines, or air-breathing propulsion systems. Candidates with demonstrated knowledge of energetic liquid and/or solid materials for applications in propellant formulations and/or processing scale-up are highly desired.

Scientific Programmer/Analyst

PSI - Boston, MA

Physical Sciences Inc., located just north of Boston in Andover, is looking for a scientific programmer with a strong background in physics or one of the physical sciences. Hands-on experience in the implementation of algorithms, real-time operating systems, and the control of optically-based sensor systems is highly desirable.

Senior Electrical Systems Engineer

RSI - Lanham, MD

Research Support Instruments is looking for a Senior Level Electrical Engineer with a breadth of experience in the design, development, integration, and testing of space-based electrical systems. The candidate should be a multidisciplinary individual with experience in multiple aspects of electrical systems. This position will be supporting NASA, NRL, and RSI programs performing systems concept development, design, analyses, hardware development, I&T, operations, and data analysis (complete spaceflight instrument hardware lifecycle).

Contamination Control Engineer

RSI - Lanham, MD

Research Support Instruments is looking for a scientist/engineer with a broad range of experience for the development of optical space flight instrumentation. Contamination in the form of particulates, films, or scattered light can significantly degrade instrument performance and/or lifetime. Management of the cleanliness of optical and nearby surfaces throughout the lifecycle of assembly, integration, test, launch and operations requires a system approach.

Senior Optical Engineer

RSI - Lanham, MD

Research Support Instruments has an immediate need for a multidisciplinary individual with primary emphasis in optical system design and metrology to work on space flight hardware. This position will be supporting the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and NASA programs performing systems concept development, design, analyses, hardware development, I&T, operations and data analysis (complete spaceflight instrument hardware lifecycle).
