This position is located in the Research Directorate at the Langley Research Center. Serves as a research aerospace engineer in the Structural Acoustics Branch studying flight vehicle acoustics. The candidate will join a team planning and executing community studies with NASA's X-59 supersonic aircraft. The candidate will support research in acoustics, signal processing, and statistics for survey design, data collection, noise measurements, and survey response analysis from X-59 overflights.Learn more about this agency
- Applies statistical methods to quantify community response to noise from X-59 overflights, including survey design, survey data collection methods, and survey analysis methods.
- Supports the development of dose-response models that relate community survey responses to noise exposure levels estimated from acoustical measurements and propagation predictions.
- Applies acoustical principles of sound propagation, sound interaction with structures, and human response to sound to the design and analysis of community surveys.
- Participates in planning and execution of computational, laboratory, and flight test studies supporting X-59 community response testing.
- Participates in technical interactions with national and international agencies, academia, and industry to ensure the community response survey and dose determination methods are acceptable to the international regulatory community.
- Participates in the development of plans and objectives and has full responsibility for the performance of specific research within the overall project, including budget, milestone generation, and conducting research to satisfy those milestones.
- Duties described above are for full-performance level. Duties assigned at a lower grade level will be of more limited scope, performed with less independence and limited complexity; duties will be commensurate with the grade of selected employee.
Occasional travel - Travel may be required for training or other work-related duties
