Job Description:

Description: Job Title: Applied Scientist/EM Systems Engineer Job Code: SAS20232102-97462 Job Location: San Leandro, CA Job Description: The Applied Technologies Division of L3Harris, in San Leandro CA, focuses on developing cutting edge pulsed power systems, x-ray radiation sources, EMP and high power microwave radiation sources, high-voltage switches & power-conditioning components. These core technologies are applied to build systems for flash x-ray imaging, electron beam sterilization, for driving high power lasers (such as those used for fusion research), and for simulating radiation environments, such as space, to study how electronics, optics, and various materials are affected by electromagnetic radiation. The largest pulsed power systems built here produce millions of amps at millions of volts, delivered within hundreds of nanoseconds. Succeeding at these fast-paced, demanding conditions requires a talented team of curious, passionate scientists, designers, technicians, and engineers. The division conducts both R&D and manufacturing to serve a mix of government and commercial customers. Essential Functions:

  • Work with a team to lead tests on large pulsed power machines and radiation sources.
  • Mentor more junior scientists and engineers
  • Lead the design and execution of experiments, on real machines or in simulations.
  • Own parts of the system-level design of large pulsed power machines
  • Develop, troubleshoot, calibrate diagnostics such as high voltage/current sensors, spectrometers, and calorimeters.
  • Tackle new and varied development problems where only general objectives are stated.
  • Run simulations using basic circuit models and compare their results to experimental data.
  • Apply scientific scrutiny to experimental & simulation results to interpret & draw conclusions.
  • Write reports detailing the results of experiments or simulations.
  • Work with customers to understand testing requirements and how to achieve them.
  • Contribute ideas for impactful advanced R&D projects to the team.
  • Lab work involving standing, bending, lifting, walking, reaching, etc
  • Actively engage to assure safety protocols are followed and take required safety training. Minimum Qualifications:
    • Bachelor's degree in physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, or related field, and 9 years of work experience, OR Master's degree and 7 years of work experience, OR a PhD and 5 years of work experience.
    • Highly skilled at experimental lab work.
    • Effective communication in oral and written technical English Preferred Qualifications:
      • Skilled at setting up and troubleshooting experimental equipment such as vacuum systems, data acquisition systems (sensors/monitors, oscilloscopes, delay generators etc), and electrical systems.
      • Experience with pulsed power systems, high voltage systems, or other related fields
      • Knowledge of plasma physics concepts.
      • Knowledge of e-beam/x-ray diagnostics.
      • Comfortable with data analysis of physical timeseries data
      • Comfortable using basic tools
      • Comfortable reading engineering drawings to assemble or troubleshoot lab equipment
      • Enjoy figuring out how things work, taking things apart and putting back together
      • Detail oriented and observant of details that could impact experimental outcomes
