Job Description:


40 hours per week. May work variable work hours to meet performance requirements (e.g., proposal and reporting deadlines, collaborations, and lab and field data collections), including occasional night and weekend hours.


Provide technical engineering support for research, analysis, and investigations in supporting design, preparation, execution, and analysis of studies and experimentation; selecting, installing, and maintaining instrumentation; performing laboratory procedures, field studies, testing, and research activities; and other scientific and administrative tasks in fields such as electrical or biomedical engineering, injury biomechanics, biomechanics, or other related field with minimal supervision.


* Utilize principles of and integrate aspects of scientific, engineering, and medical fields to design, develop, and accomplish project goals, particularly data acquisition during experimentation. * Provide support with all levels of instrumentation, equipment, data acquisition, and documentation, particularly engineering and technical aspects, development of testing procedures and equipment, collection of data, assessment and mitigation of risks, and evaluation and maintenance of functionality and safety of unique research assets and facilities. * Provide advanced instrumentation, data acquisition, and data analysis services related to the Injury Biomechanics RDT&E program, particularly related to PMHS or human research volunteers; material testing; biomedical instrumentation; ATDs; and data acquisition systems, software and research equipment, including the development of research and execution plans, novel designs, and analyses to address existing or newly defined research needs/gaps according to policy and procedures of USAARL. All aspects of RDT&E are included, such as Human Subject Research, Research Not Involving Human Subjects (RNIHS), animal and cadaveric studies, and Test and Evaluations. * Supports research work plan and proposal development and execution by developing, maintaining, and recommending appropriate instrumentation and equipment (including specification requirements, design, fabrication, repair, and operational configurations), testing procedures, and data collection and analysis techniques to execute project goals. * Provide scientific analytical, engineering problem solving, design efforts, and experienced-based solutions related to creating, measuring, and evaluating biomechanical, kinematic, and physiologic responses (including determining performance, bio-fidelity, injury risk, and human tolerance) for Soldier injury prevention through technical and scientifically sound policies and/or research and test plans to ensure quality, accuracy, reproducibility, and relevance of data/results (e.g., by developing and following Best Practice procedures, recording and documenting efforts and results, and properly handling and storing data). * Provide engineering expertise in developing and writing standard operating procedures (SOPs) that will ensure scientific and sound engineering principles and safety procedures are implemented and followed per USAARL and MRMC approval process and existing policies. Such SOPs will be used during the execution of research protocols and research/test plans that may include volunteers, cadaveric specimens, animals, and/or other biological/biomedical and non-biological materials and devices, such as PPE. Such SOPs may include the operation of data acquisition, instrumentation, mechanical material characterization equipment, and impact devices. * Provide engineering expertise in analyzing and evaluating ongoing research through data and documentation, which may be self-prepared or prepared by others and can include in-house materials, internal government documentation/data, and public-released data/documentation related to equipment performance, instrumentation and data acquisition specifications, human response, laboratory, and/or field injury biomechanics exposures. * Provide engineering expertise in preparing for classical and injury biomechanics research studies, including collaborative work with industrial and academic partners, design work for fabrication of biomechanical test equipment/devices, troubleshooting instrumentation and other equipment necessary for research purposes, and selection and justification of materials/supplies/equipment necessary for successful injury biomechanics research. * Provide reliable, timely, and quality engineering services in a team environment to industrial, military, academic customers in meeting customer, project, and/or program timelines through the testing and/or research life cycle (development and execution of test plans and protocols, analysis of laboratory, field, and theater data, analysis and documentation of findings related to injuries and/or PPE). * Under the direction of a study PI, Team Chief, and Group Leadership, manage and develop data instrumentation, test equipment, data acquisition systems, and associated methodology and training to support high quality data collection for various RDT&E projects with experienced and inexperienced personnel. * Within a RDT&E team, actively conduct (hands-on) PMHS research, volunteer research, quality assurance, data analysis, BSL-2 good laboratory practice, and support publication of project findings. * Support protocol documentation, interim and final reports, presentations, papers, and other documentation on research progress and findings with quality data, analysis, and presentation and interpretation of such data. * Maintain regular and punctual attendance. * Other duties as assigned.
