  • 5 years or more, current experience with CREO Parametric (formerly Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire), or equivalent parametric software.

  • Significant technical expertise and knowledge of mechanical engineering principles and practices.

  • Demonstrated ability to apply mechanical engineering principles and practices to technical design and implementation of technical projects, or operational assignments.

  • Experience in interpreting and translating objectives of job requirements into technical designs or functional concepts.

  • Demonstrated ability to interact with other scientists and engineers in defining goals and contributing to their realization.

  • Good oral and written communication skills.


Additional Desired Qualifications:

  • Minimum of 2 years related professional technical experience.


The posting shall remain open until the position is filled.
