Sage has an outstanding opportunity for an exceptional engineer/scientist to support a multi-disciplined team that develops methodologies, processes, and technological applications for detecting, locating, identifying, physically and functionally characterizing, modeling and assessing WMD threats to support full dimensional defeat planning and combat operations. The position will require the individual to be an expert in performing computational fluid dynamics(CFD) and/or computational structural mechanics calculations. Such calculations would use ANSYS® , LS-DYNA ®, CFX®, FLUENT®, or the like on multi-core machines. The position develops in-depth technical assessments and models of processes and behavior of WMD equipment using multiple intelligence sources and analytical tools. The position requires providing technical reachback support to operational planners to support tactical and strategic planning. The position also provides occasional training to share expertise with junior counterparts and supports exercises to test new methodologies and analytical tools that are under development. Required Skills:
Master’s degree in mechanics or fluid dynamics or similar.
Demonstrated ability to work effectively within or lead a team of peers, as well as excellent interpersonal and communications skills.
Ability to communicate highly technical analyses at a level comprehensible to laymen and senior-level government representatives.
Ability to clearly express in writing technical analysis results and site characterizations.
Expertise with ANSYS®, LS-DYNA®, CFX®, FLUENT®, or similar.
15+ years of experience in solving DoD engineering problems.
TS security clearance with eligibility for SCI based upon a SSBI in the last five years.
Practical engineering design and modeling of structural and/or fluid dynamic systems using high performance codes.
Direct experience supporting reverse engineering, threat analysis and vulnerability assessments of WMD-related facilities, processes and infrastructure (to include underground facilities).
Expert knowledge and use of Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Modeling and simulation expertise with weaponeering and engineering analysis tools or similar.
Research and Development of new tools and methodologies to understand and reverse engineer processes and support systems at remote WMD-related facilities.
Ph.D. degree in Engineering or Physics.
Military or defense-related experience and an understanding of operational planning and functional defeat of hard targets and underground facilities.
Counterintelligence scope polygraph in the last five years.
