Job Details

Lockheed Martin is seeking a Mechanical / Structures Stress Engineer to join our creative team of engineers in Dallas Texas. The candidate will have the opportunity to be involved in some of Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control’s highly innovative and ingenious solutions to complex technical problems facing the aerospace industry. This exciting work will include performing research, design, analysis, evaluation, and testing in support of various program areas. This specific position is related to Mechanical / Structures Stress analysis for development and production of new aerospace products and technologies

The candidate will be responsible for performing structural (Stress and possibly Dynamics) analysis and testing of top level assemblies, subsystems, and components on one or more programs. Tasks include performing preliminary and detailed structural analysis on component and assemblies using standardized processes and tools.

The candidate will be participating in the structural analysis and design of various missile system assemblies, derive structural design requirements, specify instrumentation requirements for ground and flight testing, and aid in the specification and selection of materials. Analysis will be performed on both metallic and non-metallic structural materials. The candidate will also interface with key suppliers involving technical subjects. In addition, the candidate will provide technical documentation and input to data packages to support peer and customer reviews, present analysis data to program at technical interchange meetings, and design reviews.

Candidate will perform structural analysis using standardized analysis software tools and coordinate requirements and design solutions with program personnel. Responsible for research and development of viable strength, stiffness, stability, and durability solutions for systems and components. Exposure or experience with relevant analytic tools for structural and dynamics analysis
