Job title: Materials Engineer
Industry: Additive Manufacturing
Location: Los Angeles, Northwest
Salary: $150k - $200k
An Additive Manufacturing company is looking for a Materials Engineer to join their team. As a Materials Engineer in Additive Manufacturing, you will be called upon to develop new materials in line with customer application requirements and execute test plans, collect and analyse data, generate written reports, and communicate results to internal and external stakeholders.
- Build and implement M&P projects to understand the powder, structure, property, and processing relationships in 3D printed and heat treated, and non-heat-treated alloys.
- Assess/provide for new and novel alloys and processing strategies for additive manufacturing
- Examine project results in contrast with existing scientific knowledge and communicate project outcomes to internal and external stakeholders
- Operation and knowledge of advanced material characterization equipment, heat treatment furnaces, and AM printers
- Deliver technical support within the M&P team and to other teams within the organization as needed.
Qualifications and Experience:
- A background in developing and maturing new materials ideally within powder metallurgy and/or refractory metals
- An advanced degree in Metallurgy or Materials Science
- Knowledge of 3D printing and heat treatment process parameters and their effect on microstructure development and mechanical performance
- Metallurgical evaluations of alloy powder and 3D-printed alloys
- The ability to understand key 3D printing and heat treatment process parameters and their effect on microstructure development and mechanical performance
- Metallurgical knowledge of conventionally produced Tungsten, nickel, titanium, ferrous, and other non-ferrous alloys commensurate with experience. Particularly emphasis on solidification (casting, welding) and heat treatment-related metallurgy
- Up to 1 year of experience performing metallurgical evaluations of additively manufactured materials and alloys. Or, at least 3 years industrial setting where a primary function was knowing the impact of manufacturing processes and heat treatment, on microstructure and material performance for various ferrous and non-ferrous alloys (preferred).
Must be able to be ITAR certified (A U.S. Person, or a lawful permanent resident as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(20) or a protected individual as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3). See 22 C.F.R. 120.15.)
