The Anti-Counterfeit Branch has an analytical laboratory that conducts and oversees manufacturing process development, testing of new coinage and packaging materials for anti-counterfeit deterrence, analysis of suspect counterfeit coins and technical analysis of agency-wide or high impact problems. As a Materials Engineer (Manufacturing)(Metals) , you will:
•Provide expert advice on and review various coin programs, manufacturing practices and equipment specifications for process capabilities, suitability, and reliability potential.
•Conduct and oversee manufacturing process development, testing of new coinage and packaging materials for anti-counterfeit deterrence, analysis of suspect counterfeit coins and technical analysis of agency-wide or high impact problems.
•Develop techniques for identification of counterfeit coins and identification of deterrent features for both circulating and precious metal coins.
•Provide expert advice to senior managers and colleagues on broad strategies of methods, equipment and advanced technology, and process management and control strategies for optimizing complex processing of coin blanks and coin production for circulation and proof coining at all Mint field offices.

Requirements

You must meet the following requirements by the closing date of this announcement.

Specialized experience: For the GS-14, you must have one year of specialized experience at a level of difficulty and responsibility equivalent to the GS-13 grade level in the Federal service.

  • Specialized experience or General experience for this position includes:

    • Experience leading, implementing and managing continuous process improvements in a manufacturing setting with ferrous or non-ferrous metals;

               AND

    • Experience independently utilizing Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and X-ray Diffraction Spectrometer (XRF) to conduct elemental analyses;

               AND

    • Experience using advanced statistical methods such as analysis of variance, covariance studies, and multiple regression to design, analyze and solve multi-variable factor research and development challenges.

    Education

     

    Basic Requirements:
    A. Degree: Engineering. To be acceptable, the program must: (1) lead to a bachelors degree in a school of engineering with at least one program accredited by ABET; or (2) include differential and integral calculus and courses (more advanced than first-year physics and chemistry) in five of the following seven areas of engineering science or physics: (a) statics, dynamics; (b) strength of materials (stress-strain relationships); (c) fluid mechanics, hydraulics; (d) thermodynamics; (e) electrical fields and circuits; (f) nature and properties of materials (relating particle and aggregate structure to properties); and (g) any other comparable area of fundamental engineering science or physics, such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics.


    OR
    B. Combination of education and experience -- college-level education, training, and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical and mathematical sciences underlying engineering, and (2) a good understanding, both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques and their applications to one of the branches of engineering. The adequacy of such background must be demonstrated by one of the following:


    1. Professional registration or licensure -- Current registration as an Engineer Intern (EI), Engineer in Training (EIT)1, or licensure as a Professional Engineer (PE) by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. Absent other means of qualifying under this standard, those applicants who achieved such registration by means other than written test (e.g., State grandfather or eminence provisions) are eligible only for positions that are within or closely related to the specialty field of their registration. For example, an applicant who attains registration through a State Board's eminence provision as a manufacturing engineer typically would be rated eligible only for manufacturing engineering positions.
    2. Written Test -- Evidence of having successfully passed the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE)2 examination or any other written test required for professional
    registration by an engineering licensure board in the various States, the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
    3. Specified academic courses -- Successful completion of at least 60 semester hours of courses in the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences and that included the courses specified in the basic requirements under paragraph A. The courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of an engineering program as described in paragraph A.
    4. Related curriculum -- Successful completion of a curriculum leading to a bachelor's degree in an appropriate scientific field, e.g., engineering technology, physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology, may be accepted in lieu of a bachelors degree in engineering, provided the applicant has had at least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision and guidance. Ordinarily there should be either an established plan of intensive training to develop professional engineering competence, or several years of prior professional engineering-type experience, e.g., in interdisciplinary positions. (The above examples of related curricula are not all-inclusive.)
