Acoustics Research Engineer

NASA Langley Research Center

Location: Hampton, VA


The Structural Acoustics Branch at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, is seeking to fill a research position in acoustics. The candidate will join the Liner Physics Team working to develop and improve noise reduction concepts to reduce passenger and community exposure to aviation noise. The research will focus on experimental studies to characterize the acoustic and aerodynamic performance of noise reduction concepts such as acoustic liners. Research will include the development and implementation of advanced flow diagnostic and acoustic measurement methods and related data processing approaches. These methods will be used to optimize the aerodynamic and acoustic performance of noise reduction concepts for application to a range of aviation vehicles, from small vertical lift vehicles targeting the Advanced Air Mobility mission to large commercial transports.

As a member of the Liner Physics Team, the candidate will support important experimental work in the Liner Technology Facility at NASA Langley. Experimental facilities include the grazing flow impedance tube, the curved duct test rig, and the high intensity modal impedance tube. The research seeks to develop and optimize novel acoustic liner concepts that provide noise reduction and have low aerodynamic drag to minimize performance penalties of the concepts. This position requires experience characterizing the acoustic and/or aerodynamic properties of experimental facilities and test articles. The work requires interactions with other NASA researchers, partners in industry, academia, and other government agencies, domestically and internationally. Computational and laboratory capabilities at NASA will be used to support the team’s work. Occasional travel may be required.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic, self-motivated, and have demonstrated success in a team-oriented research environment. The candidate must be able to clearly communicate research results at technical conferences and to non-technical audiences. Publication of research results is expected in this position, so the candidate must possess good writing skills.

Requirements (see official announcement on USA Jobs for definitive list):
• BS, MS, or PhD degree or equivalent in a field of engineering or physical sciences. Specialized experience and education requirements are described in the official job announcement.
• U.S. citizenship
