As a Senior Electromagnetic Design Engineer in the Electro-Mechanical Instruments Group at Draper, you will play a critical role in the development of Electro-Mechanical inertial instruments for cutting-edge guidance applications building on Draper's long legacy. You will lead the design of next generation miniaturized motors and resolvers that will power and control guidance applications ranging from the nation's largest ballistic missiles to miniature guided munitions.

You will work closely with a team of engineers and physicists to build next-generation gyroscope, accelerometer, and guidance-aiding sensor prototypes, characterize their performance, develop production roll-out and ultimately deliver production hardened systems meeting some of the world's most stringent requirements. - You will also be a key leader in the development of our junior engineering staff as a mentor and technical leader in a fast-paced, technically challenging environment.

The ideal candidate is expected to be a subject matter expert in the design of high-precision torque motors, resolver, and other electro-magnetic devices for fielded, real-world applications. - You will develop/evolve in-house electric motor and resolver design tools, analytical models, and electromagnetic simulations and analysis to advance Draper's technology and design capabilities. You will work with in-house and external teams to prototype designs and perform motor dynamometer testing for characterization and fault analysis. - You will also develop motor control simulation models and support motor control firmware development. - Experience in the design and integration of power electronics for EM applications is highly desirable. - The ideal candidate will possess a history of hands-on design/build skills, experience rolling out designs to a manufacturing environment and the ability and desire to mentor junior engineers.

  • Academic or Industry specialization in electromagnetics is required
  • Master's degree or PhD in Engineering Physics or similar field preferred, though strong candidates with bachelor's degrees and proven industry experience will be considered.
  • 5-10 years of technical experience in a relevant industry or research environment preferred
  • Must be highly self-motivated and must thrive in a multidisciplinary team environment.
  • Ability and interest in mentoring students and junior engineers
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Track record of inventiveness and technical leadership

    Applicants selected for this position will be required to obtain and maintain a government security clearance. -
