Are you looking to work with a multi-disciplined team of engineers and scientists to support, evaluate, and implement chemistry analysis equipment shipboard? We have an exciting entry level opportunity in our Chemistry & Component Technology Unit that will support chemicals and chemistry equipment for U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and submarines.
Some of the responsibilities include:
- Work with a multi-disciplined team of skilled engineers and scientists to evaluate commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) chemistry equipment for potential shipboard application, and in some cases, work with COTS vendors to develop customization of chemistry equipment to meet specific shipboard needs.
- Support currently deployed chemistry analysis equipment by designing tests and qualifying new hardware and writing technical manual procedures.
- Resolve issues with fleet chemicals, chemical analysis methods, and chemistry equipment.
- Research and development of new chemistry analysis methods and techniques to simplify and modernize existing shipboard analysis methods and to support implementing new technology.
- Wide variety of work types including hands-on chemistry laboratory work, data evaluation, authoring technical and cost/benefit engineering evaluations and recommendation reports, authoring system operating and troubleshooting procedures.
- Efficiently work on multiple tasks concurrently and have a strong drive to resolve questions and complete tasks in a timely manner. Willing and able to respond to changes to task assignments and priorities based on emergent issues and system needs.
