**Do you want to join a dynamic team that helps tackle some the most challenging issues facing our nation's security?**

We are seeking and engineer to join our dynamic team working on physics\-based models of flight systems \(rockets, missiles, aircraft, spacecraft, etc\.\)\. You will create models and utilize models and frameworks that are created by others\. You will implement these models and algorithms in flexible, fast\-running, and large\-scale simulations at various classification levels\. You will join a diverse department that develops large\-scale system simulations and algorithms for advanced aerospace concepts\. We are located within a systems analysis organization inside a flight system center where we design, build, and flight\-test these concepts to address national defense needs\. In addition to developing simulation tools, we perform wide\-ranging analyses of aerospace systems for internal and external customers\. These simulations range in complexity from desktop analyses to supercomputer variants\. Our goal is to create simulation "laboratories" where systems, algorithms, and designs can be "tested" before being built and inform design trades\.

Required:

+ You will have a bachelor's and advanced degree \(MS or PhD\) in Aeronautical/Aerospace, Mechanical, Electrical Engineering, or related engineering discipline with documented completion of coursework in flight/space dynamics, control, and estimation systems; a bachelor's degree in one of the above plus four years directly related experience may be considered in lieu of an advanced degree\.
+ Your background will include aerospace systems modeling experience\.
+ You bring experience using C\+\+ or other high\-performance computing code\.
+ You can obtain and maintain a DOE Q\-level security clearance with an SCI\.

Desired:

Your background should also include:

+ Experience performing engagement and mission simulations of military systems\.
+ Large\-scale simulation software development experience\.
+ Experience developing software on parallel, cluster, and/or graphic\-processor supercomputers\.
+ Real\-time algorithm development experience\.
+ Validated accomplishment in the desired areas through publications in professional journals or conference proceedings\.
+ Current and active DOE SCI clearance\.

Department Description:

The Scrimmage department, develops an outlook of potential future war\-fighter technology needs through simulation and analysis of mission and engagement vignettes\. Our work allows for development of a deep understanding of potential gaps in war\-fighter capabilities and helps to drive proposals, technology roadmaps, as well as requirements for future systems\. Our capabilities draw upon both the offensive and defensive technology expertise at the laboratory\. The department both utilizes existing tools and develops new tools for creating a robust scrimmaging capability\. The department seeks broad integration with war\-fighters and technology providers to the government\.

\*These benefits vary by job classification\.

Security Clearance:

Position requires a SCI security clearance\.

Position requires a Department of Energy \(DOE\) granted Q\-level security clearance and SCI clearance, which may require a polygraph test\.

Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre\-employment drug testing, and a pre\-employment background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education verifications\. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q\-level security clearance, which requires U\.S\. citizenship and SCI clearance, which may require a polygraph test\.

Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance\.
