The Mechanical Sciences Division of the Army Research Office (ARO) in Research Triangle Park, NC, is actively looking to fill a positon of Solid Mechanics Engineer/Program Manager to lead an innovative, high pay-off, basic research program in the area of solid mechanics. The ideal candidate would have a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering or Materials Science & Engineering with educational training and/or experience in conducting basic research in the areas primarily related to solid mechanics. Program management experience in these areas is desired but not essential. As the position requires general basic knowledge/experience in the area of solid mechanics, candidates with educational training/experience in any solid mechanics or mechanics of materials sub-discipline will be considered as long as the training/experience is related. The duties involve identification of new scientific opportunities (focus areas) for basic research investments in the area of solid mechanics, formulation of research programs based on these focus areas, management of the programs primarily through grants/contracts to the extramural research community (e.g. Universities) and transition of that knowledge to the Army. The research breakthroughs derived from the program as a result of incumbent’s efforts would ultimately lead to the development of critical new technologies and capabilities to empower future U.S. Army soldiers. The incumbent will be expected to maintain on-going awareness of recent developments in the field of solid mechanics, as well as conduct workshops and studies to identify new emerging opportunities for future investments.
