Acoustics Research Engineeer

NASA Langley Research Center

Hampton, VA

 

The Structural Acoustics Branch at NASA Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia is seeking to fill a research position in acoustics. The successful candidate for this position will join a team preparing for flight tests of NASA’s low-boom X-plane demonstrator, which will fly over communities in the US to gather data on the impact of low booms on community residents. The team’s work involves the application of analytical, numerical and experimental methods to understand near-ground boom levels, and psychoacoustic methods to collect and analyze human response data. The resulting noise dose-response relationship produced by the team will be vital to support potential changes to FAA and ICAO rules that currently prohibit overland supersonic flight.

As a member of the Sonic Boom Community Response Team, the candidate will participate in the development of experimental and numerical methods to estimate the noise dose experienced by residents of overflown communities. This includes supporting ongoing efforts to define and quantify variability in the noise dose due to vehicle flight conditions, atmospheric conditions, reflection and diffraction from buildings, and sound transmission through buildings. The candidate may also contribute to the application of psychoacoustic test methods to design and conduct social surveys to estimate community response to boom events.

The position requires knowledge of acoustics, signal processing, and numerical methods applied to acoustics with education and/or experience corresponding to a GS-11, 12 or 13 Research Position.  The candidate is expected to participate in computational, laboratory, and flight-test studies supporting the team’s work. 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.

Requirements:

  • BS, MS, or PhD degree or equivalent in engineering or physical sciences. Candidates with only a BS degree must demonstrate relevant work experience
  • Experience and/or training in acoustics and signal processing
  • U.S. citizenship

Familiarity with the following is desired:

  • Numerical models of acoustic phenomena: FE, BEM, ray tracing
  • Outdoor sound measurement techniques
  • Statistics and uncertainty analysis
  • Psychoacoustics

Applications must be submitted using USA Jobs: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/480638600
