LIFT your career past the boundaries of possibility at Aerojet Rocketdyne.Legacy | Innovation | Fulfillment | Teamwork
At Aerojet Rocketdyne, our people further the exploration of space, and keep America safe. It doesn’t get much better than that. From the Apollo missions to exploring Pluto, we have a long history of accomplishments. We are seeking experienced Combustion & CFD Engineers primarily to support solid rocket propulsion assignments at our facility in Huntsville, Alabama.
Perform combustion and fluid dynamics analysis for solid and liquid propulsion systems using 1D, 2D, and 3D analytical tools, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis with software such as Fluent. Conduct pre-test performance predictions and post-test analysis of engine test data, and refine the analyses to better match test data through physics-based critical thinking. Be a key part of Aerojet Rocketdyne’s team by leading CFD analysis support on projects to develop solid rocket motors, liquid rocket engines, and high speed air-breathing propulsion systems.
Participate in design and verification tests of both solid and liquid propulsion systems and components. Develop strategies to verify and validate analysis results. Participate in team meetings, technical reviews, design reviews, peer reviews and problem solving meetings.
Produce briefings for peer and management reviews, and present to internal and external customers. Using best practices, document all work and prepare formal reports.
Requires a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical, Aero or other related discipline and at least five (5) years of propulsion experience, preferably with solid rocket motors (or an equivalent combination of education and experience).
US Citizenship required. Must be able to obtain and maintain a U.S. Security Clearance at the appropriate level (U.S. Citizenship required). Must also be able to satisfy federal government requirements for access to government information, and having dual citizenship may preclude you from being able to meet this requirement.
