Responsibilities

This is a research position engaged in professional scientific and engineering work which is systematic, critical, intensive investigation directed toward discovering, disseminating, and applying new or expanded knowledge in a professional discipline. Research includes experimental, computational, empirical, and theoretical investigations conducting research or studying the flow of fluids about bodies and through passages, nozzles, etc., and the related forces, or physical processes involved.

The purpose of the work is to improve the methodology for calculating the flow of fluids around aircraft and launch vehicles and their components. Duties may also include monitoring contractual activities in support of in-house work. The work includes a particular focus on the development of advanced configuration and component concepts for all classes of fixed wing and aerospace vehicles from subsonic to supersonic speeds and the development and application of advanced experimental and computational tools for use in design and assessment of advanced configuration and component concepts in support of the Agency, the Department of Defense, and the aerospace industry.

Research studies result in a series of publications that answer important questions in the scientific field, account for previously unexplained phenomena, result in important changes in existing products, processes, or techniques, or are definitive of a specific topic area. Based on knowledge of the organization's priorities, identifies promising areas for initiating research efforts.

Serves as a research team leader in a scientific field. Maintains a continuing assessment of the team's progress in relation to the objectives of the research study as well as the overall goals of the organization.

Develops solutions to problems encountered by the research team in data collection, monitoring, compilation, and analysis. Designs experiments in response to agency needs for data in specific scientific and technical areas. Trains and provides technical direction to team members.

Makes major contributions to the scientific community such as inventions or new designs and techniques that are of material significance in the solution of important applied problems. Conceives and formulates research ideas that are the basis for productive studies by other research scientists/engineers. The researcher has authored one or more publications of considerable interest and value to a scientific field as evidenced by favorable reviews, by citation in the work of others, or by presentations of papers to professional societies.

Hampton University

Posted 3 weeks ago

VIEW JOBS 10/31/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-01-29T00:00 The Hampton University Partnership for Research and Education in Materials (PREM) is seeking two candidates for appointment at the Research Assistant Professor level. The first appointment is expected to be on or before December 31, 2018 and the second appointment is expected to be on or before June 30, 2019. Founded in 1868, Hampton University (www.hamptonu.edu) is located on approximately 300 acres of the Virginia Peninsula. It is a privately endowed, co-educational, nonsectarian institution of higher education and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools accredit all programs. Hampton University, a member of the Historically Black College and University (HBCU) community of higher education institutions, is currently enjoying tremendous growth and development from a traditionally teaching to a more research-intensive institution. Hampton University is currently a Masters-level institution of higher learning with a primarily undergraduate student population of approximately 4,600 students pursuing degrees in diverse areas of study. The Hampton-Brandeis PREM is a partnership between Hampton University and Brandeis University that includes the strengthening and expansion of collaborative research and education between the two institutions. The overall goal of the Hampton-Brandeis PREM program is to increase recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of talented minority students in materials science and engineering related fields. In addition, an important ancillary goal is to increase the research capacity and productivity at Hampton. The Hampton-Brandeis PREM's partnership is based on the following four components: (1) research thrusts in photo-responsive materials, opto-active materials, and opto-electronic materials which is at the center of all activities, (2) an education program for undergraduate students that improves current recruitment, retention and graduation rates and leads to a newly developed minor in Material Science and Engineering, (3) an innovative post-doctoral fellowship training program, which prepares postdocs for faculty careers at Hampton and other HBCUs and universities and (4) outreach partnerships to increase local Hampton Roads K-12 students participation in materials science research activities. The Hampton-Brandeis PREM Post-Doctoral Training Program, Path-to-Professorship (PTP) Program, is comprised of two complementary components: (1) the PREM Mentorship and Networking Program, and (2) a PREM Seed Project Funding for PTP Research Assistant Professor. The PTP Program primary aim is to expanding the diversity of the NSF-funded materials science research workforce and the HBCU materials science-related faculty pool. Duties and Responsibilities The PTP Program Research Assistant Professor appointment will be in the School of Engineering and Technology. He/she will be supervised jointly by the PREM Director and the PREM thrust leaders. The successful candidates (two) will be responsible for the performance of PREM research projects under the direct supervision of Hampton University teaching faculty. The PTP Research Assistant Professors will supervise a research project team consisting of students (graduate, undergraduates and high school) and collaborators, engage in scholarly activities, and actively work towards the further growth and development of the Hampton University PREM. Qualifications The successful applicant must have an earned doctorate (chemistry, engineering, physics, or related field) and a strong record of research demonstrated in research productivity during graduate and post-doctoral training. Scholarly activity appropriate for an appointment as a Research Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering and Technology is required. The successful candidate will possess the following skills and abilities: * Demonstrated ability to effectively manage multiple priorities-research, education and outreach; * Research experience in optics, photonics, micro/nano-fabrication, and thin-film device integration; * Expertise in chemical synthesis, polymer systems, computational dynamics, fluid dynamics, microfluidics, and/or microscopy; * Expertise in solid-state fluorescent materials development, halide perovskites, and rare earth spectroscopy; * Demonstrated ability to work on interdisciplinary, inter-institutional research teams and; * Strong track record in research productivity.
