Job Description Qualifications:

The Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) team is seeking an Experienced Loads Analysis Engineer located in Kennedy Space Center, FL or Huntsville, AL, or Houston, TX.

As a part of Boeing’s Space, Intelligence and Weapon Systems (SI&WS) organization, the Loads and Dynamics (L&D) team is focused on attracting and developing top talent in support of critical missions on the Space Launch System (SLS), Exploration Upper Stage (EUS), and Starliner programs. With team members in Huntsville, AL, Houston, TX, and El Segundo, CA, we are connected to NASA’s missions, delivering both astronauts and cargo to low-earth orbit, the lunar surface, and beyond.  For an exceptional candidate, this role provides the opportunity to shape the future of space launch, by analyzing and growing the capability of these key vehicles in NASA’s fleet.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Coordinates with other engineering groups both within Boeing and with the government customer to establish system environments

  • Analyzes simulations using NASTRAN for all ground and flight events to which the vehicle is exposed (examples include vehicle roll-out transportation, liftoff ignition, ascent gust/buffet response)

  • Develops internal loads on secondary structures or components using NASTRAN base-drive analysis

  • Reduces structural dynamics models using Craig-Bampton (CB) method, and recovers output using Load Transformation Matrices (LTM)

  • Verifies analysis to assure compliance with structural integrity and stability requirements

  • Plans and conducts modal survey tests to validate finite element models (FEM), including mode selection, accelerometer and excitation location, and result correlation

  • Establishes dynamic test criteria (low-frequency sinusoidal sweep) for component qualification, and verifies test compliance

  • Compares flight instrumentation data to pre-flight predictions and requirements, and investigates anomalies

  • Generates load spectra for use in fatigue and wear analysis

This position is hybrid. This means that the selected candidate will be required to perform some work onsite at one of the listed location options. This is at the hiring team’s discretion and could potentially change in the future.

This position must meet export control compliance requirements. To meet export control compliance requirements, a “U.S. Person” as defined by 22 C.F.R. §120.15 is required. “U.S. Person” includes U.S. Citizen, lawful permanent resident, refugee, or asylee.

Basic Qualifications (Required Skills/Experience):

  • Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate of Science degree from an accredited course of study, in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry

  • 6+ years of experience using NASTRAN/PATRAN or similar FEM software to perform structural analysis on aircraft or space structures.

  • 6+ years of experience using Matlab and/or Simulink

Typical Education / Experience:

Education/experience typically acquired through advanced technical education from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (e.g. Bachelor) and typically 5 or more years' related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and
experience (e.g. PhD, Master+3 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
