Electrical/Mechanical Engineer Position

for the Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory
Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering
University of Colorado Boulder
Position Description:
We are seeking an electrical engineer with interest and experience in mechanical engineering to help lead experimental research using our 400 g-ton centrifuge facility (see description below). The applicant is expected to have knowledge and hands-on experience with sensors, electronics, data acquisition, and signal processing. The applicant will play a critical and proactive role in managing the centrifuge facility at CU Boulder, training the students and researchers in instrumentation and safety, and improving the existing capabilities while working with faculty in developing new capabilities. The position entails ample opportunity for fundamental innovation, excellence, and creativity including the opportunity to publish and apply for research and facility improvement grants. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience level, and competitive with other laboratories.
Successful Applicants will have the Following:
  • BS degree or above in electrical engineering or mechanical engineering
  • Team management, organization, and implementation skills
  • Background and hands-on experience in data acquisition hardware and software, circuitry, instrumentation and controls, signal processing and modern measurements technologies
  • An interest and ability to provide leadership in facility management and innovation
  • The ability to creatively and resourcefully tackle complex problems
CU 400 g-ton Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory: Physical modeling in geotechnical engineering involves complex interdisciplinary challenges. These arise from such things as the need to simulate realistic loads under increased centrifugal acceleration, visualize coupled phenomena using sensors embedded in soil, use digital photography, or create cyclic motions at high frequencies. A multidisciplinary team of centrifuge engineers is required to tackle these unique challenges in the Geotechnical Centrifuge Laboratory. Specialties involve geotechnical and structural physical modeling, but also importantly electrical and mechanical engineering. Centrifuge engineers ensure that this unique facility is used safely, efficiently, and innovatively by a large number of researchers from universities and industries around the world.
