Nasa Internship – Senior Microelectronics Engineer In Pasadena

    Website NASA

    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 answers—literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission—your opportunity—is 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.

    Job Responsibilities:

    • Lead the development, evaluation, selection and approval of advanced microelectronics from design, construction, quality and reliability perspectives for use in NASA space missions.
    • As a leader and highly qualified subject matter expert, advise project management on highly complex electronic part selections that maximize reliability while considering schedule and cost constraints.
    • Develop engineering specifications and drawings for emerging and complex components for space applications.
    • Lead technical interface with Mission Assurance Managers, Cognizant Engineers, and part manufacturers.
    • Lead technical surveys and audits of microelectronics part suppliers.
    • Perform highly complex statistical data analysis and risk assessments on emerging and advanced microelectronics.
    • Evaluate the manufacturing of emerging and advanced microelectronics and develop screening methods that effectively reduce risk of use in space applications.
    • Develop an understanding of potential failure mechanisms affecting advanced and emerging microelectronics, and lead failure investigations and reliability assessments.
    • Serve as a vital team member and lead within the group, ensuring part reviews, screening, testing, and procurement requirements meet project milestones.
    • Provide mentorship to junior engineers

    Job Requirements/Qualifications:

    • Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science/Engineering, Applied Mathematics or related technical discipline with typically a minimum of 12 years of related experience; a Master’s degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 10 years of related experience; or a PhD in similar disciplines with a minimum of 8 years related experience.
    • Extensive understanding and experience in the selection, procurement, manufacture, use and testing/screening of high reliability, state of the art microelectronics for space-flight applications.
    • Expert knowledge of circuits, hermetic packaging, and device technology.
    • Strong understanding of part construction (passive and active parts), statistics, process control, failure mechanisms, and quality and reliability requirements.
    • Expert knowledge of MIL-STD-883, MIL-STD-1580 and MIL-PRF-38535 and relevant JEDEC specifications and requirements related to electronic parts.
    • Ability to multi-task with an established track record of meeting schedule milestones.
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
    • Ability to work well with cross-functional teams with design engineers, line management, and project management.
    • Effective use of common computer tools and databases.
