Are you a mechanical or aerospace engineer with 0-5 years’ experience looking for a challenging new opportunity in the field of Numerical Simulation? Check out our latest job posting below and contact firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
Engineering Software Research & Development (www.esrd.com) provides cutting-edge finite element analysis (FEA) technology with a unique implementation that is designed to provide the most reliable solutions for detailed analysis. We seek to meet the analysis needs of the aerospace & defense (A&D) industry through research, consulting, and FEA software development. A strong desire to learn is critical, and you will expand your understanding of the solid mechanics, fracture mechanics, composite analysis, nonlinear analysis, and the finite element method.
You will join a team of highly motivated engineers that seeks to transform the way numerical simulation is performed across the A&D industry. In a small company we each share many responsibilities that can significantly vary from day to day; the typical work to be performed in this position includes the following responsibilities:
- Assist in defining and completing consulting projects involving detailed stress analysis and/or custom solution development for A&D customers.
- Support government research projects aiming to develop new analysis procedures for increasing reliability, affordability, and life of military aircraft.
- Develop custom simulation tools based on FEA.
- Provide feedback and support the development of ESRD’s FEA software StressCheck®.
- Interface with customers to help understand and solve their technical problems.
- Serve as a technical support resource for ESRD customers, both for ESRD software and for engineering modeling decisions.
- Provide software training for ESRD customers.
- Represent ESRD at technical workshops and conferences.
- Support the sales and marketing team.
- Occasional travel is required for conferences and on-site customer support.
- This position must meet Export Control compliance requirements, therefore “U.S. Person” status is required.
- B.S. or M.S. in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering.
- 0-5 years’ experience in the commercial or defense aerospace industry, or related field.
- Familiar with structural analysis principles (statics, strength of materials, etc.).
- Interest in software development to help other engineers solve complex problems.
- Self-motivated with strong desire to learn and continually improve.
- Excellent interpersonal skills, both verbal and written.
- Programming experience with Matlab, C++, Visual Basic, C#, or similar.
- Experience with FEA software in aerospace applications, or with theoretical background of numerical methods.
- Familiarity with fatigue and fracture analysis.
- Familiarity with metallic or laminated composite aircraft structures.
- Good mathematical background.

“As the United States Air Force continues to extend the service life of their aircraft the Aircraft Structural Integrity Program (ASIP) has had to refine the methods it uses to analyze and predict fatigue crack growth. Through the use StressCheck®, coupled with AFGROW, we in A-10 ASIP have been able to more accurately model, predict and analyze critical aircraft structure for the A-10 and other types of structure for non-A-10 system managers. This also allows us within the A-10 to more accurately assess risk for decision makers, streamline aircraft inductions into scheduled maintenance and reduce cost for total life cycle management.”
