NASA, the world's leader in space and aeronautics is always seeking outstanding scientists, engineers, and other talented professionals to carry forward the great discovery process that its mission demands. Creativity - Ambition - Teamwork - A sense of Daring - and a Probing Mind - That's what it takes to join NASA, one of the best places to work in the Federal Government.
The NASA Pathways Recent Graduate Program (RGP) is a formal development program that provides the opportunity for employment in the Federal Government and career advancement. The successful candidate will be placed in a one year formal development program (may be extended up to two years) under the guidance of a mentor and be provided with at least 40 hours of job-related training. Upon completion of the program, Recent Graduates may be converted to a permanent position (or, in some limited circumstances a term appointment lasting 1-4 years). To be eligible for conversion, Recent Graduates must have: Successfully completed at least 1-year of continuous service in addition to all requirements of the Program; demonstrated successful job performance; and met the qualifications for the position to which the Recent Graduate will be converted.
The Controls and Dynamics Branch at NASA Glenn Research Center is committed to working cooperatively with its space and aeronautics customers to research, develop and demonstrate technologies for advanced control concepts and dynamic modeling that enhance performance, safety, environmental compatibility, reliability and durability of aerospace propulsion systems.
The controls technology areas include fault diagnostics, health management, active combustion control, active stall control, turbomachinery system stability management, intelligent engine control, inlet control, integrated flight/propulsion control, nonlinear and robust multivariable control synthesis techniques, and life extending control. The dynamic modeling work includes modeling of advanced turbomachinery concepts and components, and cross-disciplinary research between controls and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
Relocation expenses are not authorized.
