4 Draco Dr., Edwards AFB, CA 93524

JOB DESCRIPTION
Job Title: Liquid Rocket Intern Engineer
Labor Category: Non-Exempt

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:
Join an established team of engineers and program managers in the Engines Branch of the Air Force Research Laboratory Rocket Propulsion Division (AFRL/RQRE) developing technology demonstrators to advance liquid rocket propulsion technology. Activities include overseeing the design, fabrication, and testing of these technology demonstration test articles and ensuring that program goals are met.

Data uncertainty quantification and model validation:
The intern will participate as test and analysis support to two AFRL programs. These programs are engaging in multiple testing activities at AFRL, NASA, and academic institutions. The intern will continue past efforts at AFRL to automate the processing of hot fire data. The intern will focus on manipulation of gathered hot fire data and use MATLAB scripts which will be repurposed and applied to Preburner and Main Chamber performance data analyses. In addition, the intern will also apply AFRL developed MATLAB scripts for uncertainty analyses, applying this approach to combustion stability model validation and verification.

The individual will be on-site full-time during the summer for approximately 3 months.

REQUISITE SKILLS:

  • An understanding of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, compressible flows, and heat transfer
  • Familiarity with rocket propulsion is desirable.
  • Familiarity with experimental research and testing of complex systems is desirable.
  • Ability to use MATLAB or Python to solve engineering problems.
  • The candidate shall have a good command of Microsoft Office software (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint).
  • A good knowledge of the English language is required.
  • The candidate shall be able to operate in a team environment, and shall have good interpersonal, reporting and communication skills (written and verbal).

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Candidates must be studying Aerospace or Mechanical Engineering, and hold at least 3rd year status in that discipline (e.g. entering Junior year Fall 2019).
  • The candidate must be a US citizen and be able to obtain a US security clearance.
