Electrical and Electronics Failure Analysis Engineer

RTN 2 (Raytheon IDMS)
Tucson, AZ 85701

The Electrical Engineering (EE) Section of the Materials and Process Engineering Department is seeking an individual to fulfill the role of Senior Electronic Materials Failure Analyst. This position supports the EE section in its mission of performing electronic materials failure analysis and component evaluation. The devices submitted for analysis range from simple passive devices to complex, custom microcircuits as well as cables/harnesses, connectors, magnetics and electro-magnetics. The position requires knowledge of the materials and processes related to Electrical, Electronic and Electro-mechanical (EEE) components and assemblies, including but not limited to ceramics and glasses, metal wire bonding, component staking, conformal coating, and solder.

The position requires the ability to work through each step of an analysis, from initial evaluation, photo-documentation, non-destructive analysis, electrical test, destructive analysis, and ultimately authoring a formal final report that substantiates any failure conclusions. The position requires being able to determine the root cause of failures using the available laboratory equipment and tools including digital and analog microscopes, a variety of electrical component test equipment, X-Ray system, C-Mode Scanning Acoustic Microscope (C-SAM), SEM-EDS, and different destructive analysis tools & techniques.

The position involves the ability to work on several analyses in parallel, and to cooperate with members of the other sections in the department with areas of expertise in materials and chemistry. This involves teaming with them to support your analysis and to support theirs in turn. The position also requires working with Component Engineers, Program Chief Engineers, and Failure Investigation Teams / Failure Review Boards (FIT / FRB). This may also require periodic presentations to these entities or even Program / Missile Systems management. This position may require periodic travel

NOTE: This position can be Salary Grade G07 (Multi-Disciplined Engineer II) or Salary Grade G08 (Senior Multi-Disciplined Engineer I) based upon the applicants qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements of the position.

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment.

Required Experience, Skills and Education

  • For, Multi-Disciplined Engineer II - Two (2) years of experience in the analysis of microcircuits, active or passive electrical components.
  • For, Senior Multi-Disciplined Engineer I - Four (4) years of experience in the analysis of microcircuits, active or passive electrical components.
  • Experience with electronic component failure analysis
  • Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering, Material Science, Physics other related science or engineering field
  • U.S. Citizenship is required
Desired Experience, Skills and Education:
  • Masters degree in one of the following engineering disciplines: Electrical Engineering, or Material Science or Physics with experience in component failure analysis
  • 6 plus years of direct related experience in the analysis of microcircuits, active or passive electrical components
  • Knowledge of Government Component Documents i.e. MIL-STD, MIL-PRF, and MIL-HDBK specifications, and associated QPLs and QMLs. (MIL-STDs 750 / 883, MIL-PRF 38534, 38534, 19500, 1580 etc.)
  • Data collection and presentation skills to write a cogent report, supporting the analysis conclusion and if necessary present the data and findings
  • Ability to effectively work parallel analyses
  • Working knowledge of the Microsoft Office suite
  • Familiarity with component data sheets and drawings
  • Experience with electrical test equipment such as (DMM, Curve Tracer, Parametric Analyzers, etc.)
  • Technical working knowledge of electronic component parts and their application
  • Knowledge of reading electrical schematics and circuit analysis

Advanced degree in aforementioned disciplines. ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard
