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.
