    Responsibilities

    • You will formulate, organize, and participate in programs to assure use of reliable EEE parts as used in highly complex systems and components for space flight hardware, spacecraft, and related experimental and test activity.
    • You will serve as an EEE parts technical specialist and MSFC representative in support of the NASA Electronic Parts & Packaging (NEPP) Program, the NASA Electronic Parts Assurance Group (NEPAG), and the NASA EEE Parts Community of Practice.
    • You will lead, coordinate, and manage the NEPP/NEPAG Government Working Group (GWG) to provide in-depth technical support and solutions to terrestrial and space programs involving NASA, the Department of Defense, and other government agencies.
    • You will evaluate new electronic materials, methods and processes for the research, development, design, planning and implementation of concepts, documentation, fabrication and testing of advanced EEE components for flight critical applications.
    • In direct support of Team Leader, you will have broad responsibility in establishment, implementation, surveillance and maintenance of an effective EEE parts program for assigned space flight projects.
    • You will serve as a senior technical specialist for EEE parts such as microcircuits, transistors, diodes, capacitors, resistors, connectors, wire, filters, switches, magnetic, and similar devices.
    • You will serve as a NASA and industry recognized authority and consultant for EEE parts and present technical articles to government, industry, and academic groups as well as professional and scientific organizations.
    • You will lead, manage, and conduct discussions, meetings, and programs regarding EEE parts for NASA, other government agencies, contractors, and industry.
    • You will review, advise on, and conduct complex analysis and development studies in support of major organization programs, including areas where technical problem definitions, methods, and data are highly incomplete, controversial, or uncertain.
    • You will research electronic components, the physical properties of materials, and the effects of radiation and the space environment upon materials, parts, and subsystems used in aerospace electronic systems.
    • You will perform EEE parts screening analysis, construction analysis, destructive/nondestructive physical analysis, and failure analysis procedures on a variety of EEE parts for use in space flight hardware.
    • You will perform failure analyses of EEE parts to determine failure mechanisms, probable causes, and recommended solutions in support of projects.
    • You will apply multidisciplinary testing and analysis, such as scanning electron microscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, radiography, cross sectioning, and etching, to determine root cause of failure of EEE parts.
    • You will prepare comprehensive reports and presentations regarding EEE part applications, screening results, and failure analyses to substantiate findings.
