at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 5/23/2019

Opportunity Description

A research opportunity is available with the U.S Army Research Laboratory’s (ARL) Vehicle Technology Directorate (VTD), located at NASA Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, OH. VTD is seeking a postdoctoral graduate with a background in Engineering or Physics. A selected candidate will conduct fundamental and applied experimental and computational research supporting innovative new technologies enabling next generation propulsion systems for Army air platforms. Possible areas of study include extending the current state-of-the–art in compressors, combustion and fuels, and turbines. Research may also include hybrid systems, adaptive engine/power architectures, and novel architectures/cycles. The researcher will conduct bench and component-level studies focused on technologies that will seek to optimize future Army Vertical Lift mission performance (fuel consumption, range, time on station, etc.) across the full spectrum of ambient conditions (high hot, high cold, etc.) Click here for more information

About Us

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies such as the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
