EXPERIENCED ELECTROMAGNETIC EFFECTS ENGINEER

BOEING

The Electromagnetic Effects team of Boeing Research and Technology (BR&T) in Tukwila, WA researches and develops technology in Electromagnetic Effects analysis, design, and test methods for application across the Boeing enterprise. Areas of focus include electromagnetic compatibility, electromagnetic interference, lightning direct and indirect effects, static charge and dissipation, materials characterization to electrical effects, and computational electromagnetic model development to support these research areas.  Research supports the development of technology for all Boeing business units and programs including Boeing Commercial Aircraft and Boeing Defense, Space and Security Systems.

In this role you will apply electromagnetic theory to develop advanced electrical analysis and measurement techniques and test processes for determining lightning direct effects and static charge performance on carbon fiber composites and mixed-material structural interfaces. Apply analytical calculations, numerical models, and electromagnetic effects knowledge to expand analytic models of materials, features, components and systems from small scale to final product. Test materials for electrical failure modes and sparking as it relates to ignition. Interface with materials engineers for the definition and qualification of new materials that meet lightning direct effects and static charge performance requirements, while meeting structural and manufacturing engineering requirements.

You will also be responsible to maintain and advance computational electromagnetic and multi-physics tools, to include time- and frequency-domain methods in both low frequency and high frequency models, such as finite difference time domain (FDTD), method of moments (MoM), finite/boundary element methods (FEM/BEM), and asymptotic techniques (PO, PTD, GTD, UTD, etc.). The solution space ranges from static, through anisotropic materials characterization

This position allows telecommuting. The selected candidate will be required to perform some work onsite at one of the listed location options.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Apply electromagnetic theory to develop advanced electrical analysis and measurement techniques and test processes for determining lightning direct effects and static charge performance on carbon fiber composites and mixed-material structural interfaces
  • Apply analytical calculations, numerical models, and electromagnetic effects knowledge to expand analytic models of materials, features, components and systems from small scale to final product
  • Test materials for electrical failure modes and sparking as it relates to ignition. Interface with materials engineers for the definition and qualification of new materials that meet lightning direct effects and static charge performance requirements, while meeting structural and manufacturing engineering requirements

The position must meet Export Control compliance requirements, therefore a “US Person” as defined by 22 C.F.R. § 120.15 is required. “US Person” includes US 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
  • Experience with EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility)
  • Experience with EMI (Electromagnetic Interference)

Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills/Experience):

•    E3 (Electromagnetic Environmental Effects)

•    Lightning direct effects testing

•    Development of computational electromagnetic modeling (CEM) methods

•    Use of CEM methods

•    Defining EME requirements and research projects

•    Scripted (Matlab, MathCAD, Python, or Perl) and compiled (C, C++, or JAVA) languages

•    Linear algebra

•    Software development processes

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 9 or more years’ related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and experience (e.g. PhD+4 years’ related work experience, Master+7 years’ related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
