GE is an equal opportunity employer, offering a great work environment, challenging career opportunities, professional training and competitive compensation.
The Vibrations Lab provides cutting-edge and state of the art solutions in the areas of acoustics and structural dynamics. The lab participates in cross-disciplinary teams for advanced development and design in the area of acoustic, structural dynamics and structural mechanics of mechanical systems such as rotating machinery, medical equipment, process equipment and vibration based diagnostics. The lab focuses on acoustics, structure-borne noise, and aeromechanics of turbo-machinery, damping solutions for noise & vibration mitigation and forced response characterization under acoustic-structure and/or fluid-structure interaction.
As a Vibrations Engineer, you will perform research in the areas of theoretical and experimental modal analysis, damping techniques and analysis methods and vibration measurement techniques. You will develop and implement new computational and experimental procedures for mitigating vibrations risks to industrial products through innovative mechanical design solutions including advanced dampers (passive or active). You will develop new concepts towards the above goals and validate those with laboratory scale prototype testing.
- Perform analysis and prediction of noise & vibration for various GE industrial products like turbine blades, medical equipment like CT & MR machines, O&G drilling equipment.
- Develop, assess and validate cutting-edge numerical and experimental techniques for determining physical characteristics and forced response of structures (Numerical techniques can be analytical methods implemented in MATLAB or other software OR Ansys based structural dynamics analysis toolsets – including scripts in Ansys APDL)
- Use advanced signal processing tools to characterize and estimating structural response to vibration under operating conditions e.g. blade tip timing
- Work closely with global GE business product teams in the design, testing, implementation, and communication of Vibration analysis and experimental methods.
- Work in teams – as an individual contributor - to meet tight deadlines that directly impact program or product schedule.
- Doctorate degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering or related discipline with concentration in the areas like vibration, acoustics, structure-borne noise and structural dynamics
- Technical background and understanding of experimental techniques in acoustics and vibrations
- Hands-on research or industry experience with experimental modal analysis, blade tip timing, vibration measurements using commercial software
- Familiarity with programming (for vibration data analysis) using tools such as Matlab.
- Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required. We will not sponsor individuals at the Masters level for employment visas, now or in the future, for this job opening.
- Must be willing to work out of an office located in Niskayuna, NY.
- Must be willing to take a drug test and submit to a background investigation as part of the selection process.
- Must be 18 years or older.
- You must submit your application for employment on the careers page at www.gecareers.com to be considered.
Additional Eligibility Qualifications
GE will only employ those who are legally authorized to work in the United States for this opening. Any offer of employment is conditioned upon the successful completion of a background investigation and drug screen.
This position is eligible for The Employee Referral Program.
