Boeing Space & Launch Engineering is seeking a highly motivated Mid-Level Structural Analyst Engineer (Level 3) to perform detailed structural analysis, including stress, fracture and fatigue assessments for the Space Launch System (SLS) program in Huntsville, AL.

This position will work with product designers and verify structural integrity using analytical methods, finite element models/simulations and other analysis tools throughout the product lifecycle to develop the structural environment, characteristics and performance. The analyst will need knowledge of structural analysis and design support activities. Also may include the following: Develops test plans and configurations, supports test execution and analyzes/reports test results to validate and verify systems and components meet requirements and specifications. Defines and documents certification and test results to substantiate for customers and regulatory agencies that requirements are satisfied. Supports in-service products by investigating failures and analyzing improvements. Works with team members and technical leads to develop integrated analysis projects and other teams to provide efficient and robust solutions.

This position will flex and stretch your abilities with ample opportunity for learning and growth. As you develop into an independent contributor on our team, you will be rewarded with matching responsibility that includes greater technical complexity and broader ownership of work-design, build, supply chain, production support, and customer support.

Basic Qualifications (Required Skills and Experience):

  • Bachelor of Science degree or greater in an engineering related field.

  • Experience with structural analysis methods and repair principles (e.g., fatigue and corrosion, stress analysis, statics, materials strength, material characteristics, repair techniques, damage tolerance methods used in maintenance programs).

  • Ability to travel 10% of the time.

Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills and Experience):

  • Degree in Mechanical, Aerospace, Applied Mechanics, Structural, and Civil are preferred.

  • Experience using NASTRAN/PATRAN or similar FEM software to perform structural analysis on aircraft or space structures.

  • Experience with Space Launch systems.

  • Experience effectively communicating and collaborating on multi-discipline teams.

  • Experience leading structural and mechanical tests of vehicles and/or subsystems.
