Mechanical Engineer - New Grad

Company: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Location: Pasadena
Posted on: September 12, 2018

Job Description:


Do you excel in an environment that values exploration and discovery? We have a universe of opportunities waiting for you!

The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is NASA's lead center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Our core competency is the end-to-end implementation of unprecedented robotic space missions to study Earth, the Solar System, and the Universe.

JPL, located in Pasadena, California, has a casual, campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.

We are proud to be part of NASA and Caltech, as we explore the universe and make history through new discoveries.

We aim to do things never done before and to go places few can go. We dare mighty things---do you?



Responsibilities



JPL's Early Career Hire (ECH) program provides recent college graduates with an opportunity to immediately utilize the knowledge obtained through their studies to gain related work experiences in alignment with their professional goals. To qualify for this program, students must have graduated with a 3.0/4.0 cumulative GPA. Bachelor's and Master's graduates must be hired within 36 months of their matriculation dates, while PhD graduates must be hired within 7 years of their matriculation date.

NASA JPL - the place where spacecraft are born! We engage in research, technology development, and the creation of advanced mechanical, thermal, propulsion, and electronic packaging systems from architectural concept through operations.

We lead the mechanical development and implementation of flight hardware and technology for NASA's robotic space missions as part of the Engineering and Science Directorate. Our expertise spans the full breadth of mechanical disciplines.

Our Mechanical Engineers investigate, plan, design and develop mechanical products and systems such as spacecraft, instruments, robots, packaged electronics, controls, engines, and machines, and mechanical, thermal, hydraulic, propulsion, or heat transfer systems for the production, transmission, measurement, and use of energy. They maintain cognizance of and are responsible for all technical and programmatic aspects of the product being developed, reporting the status and performance to the appropriate organizations. Teams apply research to the planning, design, development, and testing of mechanical and/or electromechanical systems, instruments, controls, engines, and/or machines.



Qualifications



What it takes:


  • Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Chemistry, Civil Engineering, Material/Science, Physics, Robotics, Structural Engineering, or related technical discipline with typically a minimum of 1 year of related experience; Master's or PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, or related disciplines.
  • Knowledge in one or more of the following areas: mechanical design, computer aided design (CAD) and mechanical analysis tool (FEA).
  • Recently completed coursework providing an understanding and application of standard principles, theories, concepts and techniques in mechanical systems including structures, configuration, mechanisms, structural analysis, and integration and test.
  • General knowledge of applicable industry and/or academic practices and standards in mechanical design.
  • Minimum GPA 3.0/4.0

    What would help:

    • Experience with computer aided design and drafting, and spacecraft flight hardware development and test. Working knowledge of mid-level CAD tools (i.e. Solidworks, Unigraphics).
    • Relevant internship experience
    • Demonstrated leadership abilities
    • Ability to solve mechanical design problems, perform trade studies, develop design requirements, perform piece part design, and coordinate fabrication, assembly, and qualification of hardware.
    • Good verbal and written communications skills with ability to work in a team environment
