PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
Develop, refine, and use physics-based models to quantify expected technology performance bounds of various energy conversion devices
Perform thermal and electron transport analysis at detailed component level and at the systems level
Conduct literature research and utilize scientific community networks to aggregate and organize relevant data
Assist in efforts to correlate models to experimental data and test results
Perform complex engineering/scientific analysis with moderate direction and supervision to support the design and development of the integration of energy conversion devices into products
Plan and participate in experimental testing to support design development
Assist Project/Program managers in formulating technical approaches to device design that meet system requirements
Initiate, understand, plan, and execute technical activities in accordance with, SNC's policies, procedures, and work instructions and specific Customer requirements to include generation of scientific reporting and planning documents.
Originate research papers, design documents, specifications, control documents, verification and validation plans, procedures, reports, presentations or other documentation in support of design, research and development activities
Prepare material for, and conduct, periodic progress reviews, design reviews, product reviews and build/test reviews
Execute design, research and development activities consistent with Customer quality, cost and schedule requirements
Provide estimates of labor hours and material dollars required to accomplish design, research and development activities
Assist in root cause analysis of issues arising from experiments and engineering unit testing
ADDITIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE:
Punctuality to work each day and prepared to work scheduled work hours
Other duties as assigned
Responsible for thoughtful adherence to all SNC Policies, Procedures, and Compliance regulations (internal and external)
