Hydrogen Combustion System Engineer will conduct experimental and analytical aero-thermal development activities for gas turbine combustion systems, with emphasis on hydrogen combustion technology and rig testing. Candidate will apply practical and classical methods coupled with hands-on experiments to rapidly develop complex industrial and aero gas turbine engine combustor systems and augmentors. Experience with hydrogen combustion technology and fuel injector/premixer design is desired. The combustion engineer will contribute to the development of best practices in combustion system development and will take ownership of his/her results as it directly supports the combustion team deliverables and decisions. The combustion system engineer will be a key contributor within a small highly skilled team of engineers focusing on all aspects of state-of-the-art combustion systems.
Education and Experience:
BS/MS/PhD in Engineering and 6+ years’ experience in hydrogen combustion system design, analyses, and tests.
Job Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Combustion Engineer with BS/MS/PhD in Engineering and a minimum of 6 years of direct hydrogen combustion system development experience. The applicant should have knowledge and experience with hydrogen combustion challenges, combustion chemistry, and physics. Applicant should be a self-starter with experience in rig and engine testing including test setup, instrumentation/diagnostics and validation of new combustion system designs. The ability to take ownership and rapidly execute development activities supporting product development is highly desirable. Candidates from either government agencies, industry and/or academia are encouraged to apply.
