Client is seeking to contract a highly motivated Materials Engineer to support the engineering efforts of the Materials and Chemistry Discipline team. This role will work as part of a high functioning team of engineers focused on materials processing, supply chain development and supplier qualification for next generation material and components for advanced reactors. You will be responsible for consolidating material property data from a variety of published sources as well as internal testing programs, building material property correlations and material performance models, maintaining the materials database and material design handbook, and qualifying data for use in design and licensing of advanced reactors.
• Interface with various project teams to understand the materials property data needs for reactor development programs
• Digitize and consolidate material property data from a variety of published sources as well as internal testing programs
• Use fundamental materials engineering principles to develop material property correlations and material performance models as input for reactor design and licensing
• Update and maintain a Python-based material database as well as associated design handbooks for advanced reactors
• Assist with the Qualification of Existing Data per ASME NQA-1-2015
• Inform materials test programs to validate models of material performance and ensure materials development and testing efforts meet programmatic objectives
Required Qualifications and Skills
• Minimum of 1 year of related experience with a B.S. degree; or an advanced degree with related experience, or equivalent experience. A degree in Materials Science/Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemistry, or a related technical discipline is desired.
• Familiarity with Python is highly desirable
• Experience developing material data correlations, design allowables, or material performance models
• An understanding of complex mechanical phenomena (e.g., creep, fatigue, creep fatigue, stress corrosion cracking, and fracture) in high temperature systems
• A solid understanding of metallurgy including fabrication and thermomechanical processing of ferrous (e.g., ferritic-martensitic steels) and nonferrous (e.g., nickel-base) alloys
• Working knowledge of ASME Section III, Div. 5 is desirable but not required
• Ability to work with minimum direction to solve challenging problems
• The successful candidate will possess a high degree of trust and integrity, communicate openly and display respect and a desire to foster teamwork.
• Actual position starting level and title will be determined based on assessment of qualifications.
Interested parties that meet or exceed the requested qualifications, please send a detailed resume and rate expectation to Erika Roden at ENR@BCPEngineers.com
