Acoustic Scientist - Analytical and Experimental

Description

Acoustic Scientist - Analytical and Experimental

Our culture believes in POWERING YOUR POTENTIAL . We provide global opportunities to develop your career, make your community a better place and work with today's most innovative thinkers to solve the world's toughest problems.

We believe in flexibility for you to explore your passions while making an impact through meaningful work within our inclusive workforce. That's what #LifeAtCummins is all about.

We are looking for a talented Acoustic Scientist - Analytical and Experimental to join our team specializing in Acoustic for our Power Systems Business Segment in Fridley Minnesota

In this role, you will make an impact in the following ways:
  • Applies Principles of Fatigue and Durability - Determines life of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates component temperatures, natural frequencies, mode shapes, displacements, strains/stresses, wear, and fatigue life to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.
  • Applies Principles of Noise and Acoustics - Determines the acoustic behavior of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates both air and structure borne noise, sound power levels, sound quality, flexible body motion, and natural frequencies to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.
  • Applies Principles of Dynamics and Vibration - Determines motion of components and systems via numerical modeling and/or physical measurements; evaluates rigid and flexible body motion, natural frequencies, mode shapes, displacements, velocities, accelerations, friction, and wear to draw conclusions that influence design decisions with internal and external customers.
  • Product Function Test System Design - Interprets test equipment specifications from test standards or lab customer requirements; selects and integrates appropriate equipment, instrumentation and software to control boundary conditions and collect measurement data; assesses capability of the lab equipment against the requirements and support infrastructure.
  • Function Based Product Testing of "X" - Selects appropriate equipment and techniques to operate the product and record operational data in a hardware or software based testing environment most often required as part of a product verification or validation plan; evaluates quality and validity of measurement data; analyzes test results using accepted standards to characterize product capabilities in alignment with the requirements of the engineer responsible for making product decisions.

Qualifications

To be successful in this role you will need the following:
  • Prior Technical Specialist/Specialist Engineering equivalent work experience in a relevant discipline area is required with a demonstrated track record of technical problem solving, quality decision making and providing technical direction and leadership to a project team(s). Preferred candidates would have a mix of experience using MS Office tools, Matlab, LabVIEW, nCode, Siemens Test.Lab and Windows operating systems.Additional requirements are listed below:
  • Experience in leading projects that involve the acoustics/noise simulation and testing of engine/genset systems or components (or similar equipment) for noise and vibration work. Work requires a broad knowledge in the acoustics area. The position will be in a leadership role with the ability to influence design, programs, and acoustics strategy.
  • Influences at department or program management level, with global involvement.
  • Demonstrates depth of knowledge in acoustics and leverages expertise across components, sub-systems, and systems.
  • Develop technologies to meet the noise limits in national and international directives, codes, standards, and regulations.
  • Experience with acoustic noise modeling software packages using Boundary Elements, Finite Elements and Statistical Energy Analysis. Experience with Siemens SimCenter 3D and ESI VA One preferred.
  • Skills in troubleshooting noise and vibrations problems with mechanical systems as related to product development.
  • Strong leadership skills with experience in managing people preferred.
  • A Bachelors' Degree in Acoustics (Mechanical Engineering) is required, but a Master's of Science degree or PhD in Acoustics (Mechanical Engineering) is preferred.
  • Ten years or more of experience in focused areas of acoustics with engine/generator systems or similar equipment. This should include both experimental testing and simulation in acoustics.

Compensation and Benefits

Base salary rate commensurate with experience. Additional benefits vary between locations and include options such as our 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan, Cash Balance Pension Plan, Medical/Dental/Life Insurance, Health Savings Account, Domestic Partners Coverage and a full complement of personal and professional benefits.
