OPEN POSITION - Lockheed Martin, KAPL, Inc., Schenectady, NY

      Req ID 60318BR
      Industry Job Title Materials Engineer
      Standard Job Code/Title E1862:Materials Engrg
      Required skills BS degree in the physical sciences (e.g., materials, 
chemistry, geology, solid state physics) or engineering plus hands-on 
training and/or experience utilizing scanning electron microscopy and X-ray 
microanalysis for materials characterization, development or failure 
      Desired skills MS or PhD degree in physical sciences, with 5 years or 
more experience in scanning electron microscopy and microanalysis (energy 
dispersive spectrometry, electron backscatter diffraction), and demonstrated 
problem solving experience in areas of metallurgy, alloy 
testing/development, solid inorganic materials, and/or ceramics. Experience 
with other associated techniques, especially Focused Ion Beam (FIB) and 
Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) utilization and application. Previous 
work with nuclear or radioactive materials, fractographic analysis, 
corrosion, and/or mechanical metallurgy.
      Specific Job Description Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) 
characterization of materials to evaluate response of materials to 
environmental testing and failure analysis of in-service components. 
Microstructural and microchemical characterization utilizing field emission 
SEM imaging, energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and electron backscatter 
diffraction (EBSD) techniques. Data and image processing, data assimilation, 
and reporting of results. Individual would perform multidisciplinary 
collaborative investigations and team-oriented problem solving with other 
materials characterization specialists and materials scientists/engineers 
integrating use of associated analytical techniques (EPMA, XRD, Auger, XPS, 
TEM). Utilize skills in high resolution imaging, microchemical analysis, and 
ability to evaluate and recommend best sample preparation and 
characterization methodologies for problems.

      The major duties will be use of advanced scanning electron microscopy 
and associated analytical techniques to determine the microstructure and 
microchemistry of metals, alloys, and ceramic materials. Ensure 
instrumentation is operating in proper condition; measure structure and 
composition of materials using SEM, EDS, WDS, EBSD, etc. Analyze and 
interpret data and communicate results to customers and sponsoring groups by 
oral and written reports. Serve as part of research teams to design 
experiments that will elucidate structure-composition-property-processing 
relationships. Stay current in microscopic and microanalytical techniques 
and applications. Propose and implement new capabilities or characterization 

      Applicants selected will be subject to a Federal background 
investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to 
classified matter. US citizenship is required.
