Job Description and Key Tasks:
  • The Engineering Fellow Modeling/Simulation/Analysis Engineer will act as a strategic leader who thinks about where a program or product line is heading or needs to go, while considering the technical aspects of how to get us there. The Fellow must then drive the execution of that strategy across multiple programs.
  • Strong advocate for technical integrity of modeling, simulation and analysis products across multiple programs and product lines.
  • The Fellow will be viewed as an expert and serve as a consultant to the organization in determining and developing required technologies to achieve organization growth objectives in the area of modeling & simulation, algorithm development, or performance-related analysis.
  • Technical lead in a team environment on diverse projects, providing independently determined solutions to create high fidelity simulations and models for missile system design, performance assessment, flight test support, trade studies and analysis.
  • Mentors at least 3 engineers formally and many more informally.
  • Works independently or through leadership of teams to solve the hardest Modeling/Simulation/Analysis challenges.

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

Required Education, Experience & Skills:
  • Bachelors Degree in engineering disciplines, natural or physical sciences, mathematics, or physics
  • With a Bachelors Degree, twelve (12) years experience designing and performing analysis with high fidelity performance simulations, using tools for analysis of data sets (10 years of experience with Masters and 8 years with a Ph.D.).
  • Recent applied work experience coding in C/C++ (or other high order language) and UNIX/Linux based workstations.
  • Author of intellectual property (patent disclosures) or conference/journal publications in a modeling, simulation, or analysis technical area within the past ten (10) years.
  • Provided engineering support for programs through participation in project design reviews and/or peer reviews, including preparing/delivering technical briefings to internal leadership and external customers.
  • U.S. citizenship is required
  • Must be willing to relocate to Tucson, AZ (relocation package available).

Desired Education, Experience & Skills:
  • Advanced degree in aforementioned disciplines. ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard

  • Proven knowledge of fundamental concepts, with high level of analytical ability to drive technical solutions.
  • Ability to actively participate in definition of team objectives and provide solutions to complex technical tasks.
  • A strategic leader who does not operate in a silo, but can think about where a program or product line is heading or needs to go, while considering the technical aspects of how to get us there.
  • Mentor, champion of respect, diversity and ethics.
  • Complementary expertise in the areas of signal processing, guidance navigation & control, or hardware design and test.
  • Business development experience including technical and cost proposal preparation.
  • Program management experience and familiarity with defense product lifecycles.
  • Excellent verbal and written communications with internal and/or external customers and team members.
  • Current Secret or Top Secret Department of Defense Clearance.

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance.
