Major Work Characteristics/ Summary of Position
Conducts research in support of the research efforts of Youngstown State
University as part of the research efforts of the ETC. Involves research and
development in the use of advanced manufacturing technologies, specifically,
additive manufacturing technologies, including, but not limited to, binder
jetting and metal laser powder bed fusion technologies.
PhD degree in an appropriate engineering discipline or related field with
research experience in additive manufacturing. Demonstrated experience in
obtaining external grant funds in support of advanced manufacturing research,
specifically additive manufacturing.
PhD in an appropriate engineering discipline or related field and experience
with materials related standards that would be relevant to qualification
protocols; experience using a variety of materials characterization methods
including mechanical testing, microscopy, and analytical testing; experience
with metal casting and metallurgical sample preparation. Understanding of
unique challenges associated with the operation of small businesses.
Familiarity with operations of 3D Systems, ExOne, or EOS systems. Experience
in either ceramics, porous materials, or polymer processing techniques, and
characterization commonly used in these fields.
In accordance with the U.S. Department of Labor physical demands strength
ratings, this position will perform light work.
LIGHT: work involves exerting up to 20 pounds of force occasionally, or up to
10 pounds of force frequently, or a negligible amount of force constantly to
move objects, requiring: (1) walking or standing to a significant degree;
(2) sitting most of the time while pushing or pulling arm or leg controls;
or (3) working at a production rate pace while constantly pushing or pulling
materials even though the weight or the materials is negligible. (The
constant stress and strain of maintaining a production rate pace, especially
in an industrial setting, can be and is physically demanding of a worker even
though the amount of force exerted is negligible.)
ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES: Under the guidance of the
Program Director for Applied Research, engages in independent and
collaborative research with both ETC and outside personnel on the use of
additive manufacturing. This research may include materials characterization,
process development in support of metal additive manufacturing qualification
protocols and application of additively manufactured tooling for metal
casting, and materials/process modeling and analysis.
Attends and actively supports scientific seminars, workshops, working team
meetings, and other venues for presentations of results and development of
collaborative research relationships, including STTR and SBIR submissions.
Pursues publication of research in peer reviewed journals and presents
research results in local and national forums.
Evaluates the use of additive manufacturing for tooling in conventional
Works with internal and external partners, as well as guides and mentors
students, on research projects as part of the technical effort; develops new
proposals for research and obtains project support for new and/or continuing
