Job Description
Solidus is searching for a Structural Engineer. 

Responsibilities include:
-Perform structural analyses and testing for high performance sensors and payloads in a space environment.
-Use of finite element analysis to predict mechanical response quantities including displacements and stress to meet structural integrity and mechanical system requirements.
-Specific analyses include predicting the structural response and behavior due to inertial and pressure loads, thermal environments, harmonic and random vibration disturbances, and shock environments.

The successful candidate will join a team that provides innovative multidisciplinary engineering solutions though the development of advanced mechanical and aerospace technologies for sea, ground, air, and space-based prototype systems for national security applications. Examples include the development of structural-material systems for space borne imaging and laser communication terminals, heat exchangers for high-flux laser and RF solid-state devices, and aerodynamic designs and multifunctional materials for UAV platforms. Engineering solutions are developed through the utilization of appropriate technologies coupled with high-fidelity models and multidisciplinary simulations, environmental and performance characterization testing, and the utilization and development of advanced materials to optimize solutions to meet ever increasing performance, size, weight, and environmental challenges.
-US Citizenship and the ability to obtain a DoD Secret Clearance 
-BS plus 1 year minimum experience
-Experience specifically using MSC/NASTRAN commercial finite element software. 
-Experience with vibration and shock testing to characterize, anchor, and validate models as well as to perform environmental testing. 
-Ability to perform structural analysis and testing for space payloads

Preferred Qualifications: 
-Experience performing structural design, analysis, and testing for optical systems.
-Knowledgeable in the field of optomechanics
-The ability to work in interdisciplinary teams and to clearly describe results in oral presentations and written reports 
-Experience with optical systems and the field of optomechanics
