GE is an equal opportunity employer, offering a great work environment, challenging career opportunities, professional training and competitive compensation.

Essential Responsibilities
Develop physics based advanced predictive combustion dynamics models to drive time and cost effective combustion design. Implement and leverage state of the art diagnostic techniques (such as high temperature optical fibers, high speed camera, lasers etc.) in full-scale gas turbine combustors to gain insight into the physical processes that drive combustor performance. Drive design with this insight for optimum combustor performance. Own the dynamics prediction technology roadmap to address the long term combustion development needs; leverage the technology partners across other GE businesses and university partners to make progress. Develop effective testing methodologies for evaluating combustion performance in emissions and dynamics (operability) space. Identify the NPI / NTI risks and develop mitigation plans for combustion dynamics to contain or accelerate the design schedule. Conceive, develop, test and validate advanced gas turbine combustion systems with focus on cost, operability, reliability and emissions. Work across the gas turbine platform with different component teams to ensure the gas turbine overall performance. Analyze Combustion Dynamics of engines and develop procedure models for next generation combustion systems and gas turbines. Predict, mitigate and solve combustion dynamics using state of the art tools (Combustion Dynamics Analysis (CDA), COMSOL MULTIPHYSICS, Combustion Dynamics Fuel System Analysis (CDFA) and experiments to ultimately "write the book on how I solved combustion dynamics." Develop and design dynamics mitigation devices to enhance GE F class (7FA.03, 7FA.04, 7FA.05, 9FB05) advanced technology gas turbine combustion operability and provide differentiated technologies to enhance emissions and combustor turndown. Develop transfer functions for combustion dynamics and resulting system interactions. Run sub-scale and full scale, high pressure combustion testing to validate combustion dynamics models for next generation combustion systems. Design and validate both passive and active control devices to mitigate combustion dynamics. Work with core combustion modeling leadership team to execute towards a detailed roadmap. Provide physics model based pre-test predictions using CDA / CDFA / COMSOL for combustion dynamics for lab and field-testing in the 7FA.03, 7FA.04, 7FA.05, 9FB.05 GE F class gas turbine systems.

Doctorate’s degree, or equivalent, in Mechanical Engineering or Aerospace Engineering is required. Doctorate degree must include coursework in Combustion Dynamics.

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.
