Boeing Defense Space & Security has an exciting opportunity for a Senior, Dynamic Loads Analyst to join our Flight Capabilities Team located in Huntsville, AL
As a Senior Dynamic Loads Analyst you will support the Huntsville Loads and Dynamics Flight Capability manager across various Programs. The Space Launch System (SLS) program (primary program supported), in conjunction with NASA, is developing the nation's capability in manned access to space, including destinations beyond Earth orbit. This position performs loads development, integration, and documentation of advanced structural analysis across multiple Boeing Development Systems (BDS) programs, including the SLS Program and Commercial Crew. You will perform detailed finite element modeling and coupled loads analysis for the Exploration Upper Stage. You will be responsible for generating design loads in pursuit of the overall design, development, and test of hardware.
Directly supports the Huntsville Alabama Loads and Dynamics Flight Capability leader across multiple programs and several sites.
