Job Description:

New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That's our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answersliterally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your missionyour opportunityis to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you're driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you're ready for JPL. Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a 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.

This unique individual's primary role is organizing and leading structured failure investigations, looking at the overarching factors which resulted in the observed failure and working the investigation until sufficient root cause understanding has been achieved. Issues can start at the spacecraft sub-system level and require expertise across a wide array of electrical, electromechanical, and photonics devices. Fundamental device physics understanding, along with component materials and aerospace / space manufacturing knowledge will be critical for success in this role. Additionally, experience with extreme environments and the unique failure modes they introduce will be key. Typical activity includes: - Initial issue severity assessment scoping impact, urgency and resources required - Creation of problem-solving team, ensuring appropriate problem-solving methods and engineering rigor is deployed - Identification of interim containment actions - Identify and analyze critical data, gather evidence and partner with appropriate analysis laboratory to gain insight into failure mode, mechanism & root cause - Auditing manufacturing & project partners (processes, test procedures, materials, qualification results) - Maintaining the forward moving trajectory of a dynamic multi-disciplined team - Provide technical assessment of difficult / complex system / electronic circuit / device physics problems encountered on spaceflight projects - Publication and presentation of briefings and final failure investigation report - Follow up - Verify and track correct action effectiveness Qualifications: - PhD in Electrical Engineering or Solid State Physics with a minimum of 8 years related; Master's degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 10 years of related experience; or Bachelor's degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 12 years of related experience. - Extensive experience in complex electronic circuit and/or device physics problem investigation and resolution. - Demonstrated capability in the investigation and resolution of highly complex aerospace or spacecraft subsystems / electronic component / circuit problems - developing hypotheses and modeling the issues. - Ability to effectively lead teams maintaining a positive atmosphere inclusive of all team members ideas and concerns - Demonstrated ability to be open and receptive to others' opinions and approaches in problem solving - Extensive knowledge of aerospace / space electronic manufacturing processes, commonly used electronic component materials, and component reliability analyses - Understanding of failure modes and causes related to extreme environments (temperature, pressure, radiation, etc) - Passion for troubleshooting and solving technical problems - Expert knowledge of electronics and electronic components - Empirical capability to solve problems that no one has solved - Excellent communication skills - verbal, presentation and written - Able to travel up to 15% domestically and internationally Desired Skills: - Expertise in both electrical circuit design and solid-state physics. - Experience with common electronics material related issues - Experience with electronic device assembly & packaging - Experience with spacecraft and sensor/instrument electronics subsystems - Experience with and understanding of electro-magnetic theory in RF, infrared, electro-optic sensors, digital logic devices, microwave, and optics - Excellent interpersonal and relationship building skills #LI-CC1 Requisition ID: 2019-11303 Discipline Description: Electrical, Electronic and Electromechanical Parts Career Level: Level 5 Scheduled Hours: 40 Relocation Eligibility: Yes Name: 5145 - ANALYSIS AND TEST LABORATORY Travel: 10% Clearance Status: None External Company Name: Jet Propulsion Laboratory External Company URL: ***************************** Street: 4800 Oak Grove Dr. Oracle Job Title: Parts Failure Engineer V
