Jr Materials Engineering Technician Add Mfg & Repair Technol - 250422
This position is located at UDRI’s Warner Robins, GA location. This position will support day-to-day metallography laboratory (met lab) operations for United States Air Force (USAF) sustainment activities including additive manufacturing (AM), cold spray (CS), and applied corrosion technologies. Primary job duties will include specimen preparation and characterization to support direct metal laser melting (DMLM) and fused filament fabrication (FFF) AM and CS process and product development, incoming quality control inspection and assisting inventory management of metal powders for AM and CS, coordinating purchase orders and sample shipments with internal and external support labs, and supporting materials engineers with other project activities as assigned. Lab safety and housekeeping rules and regulations, as well as relevant government or industry standards as appropriate, must be carefully followed at all times.
Associate Applied Mathematician Researcher Nondestructive Eng - 250467
The Structural Materials Division of the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) is seeking a researcher with experience in applied and computational mathematics to work on Air Force funded research programs.
Applied Mathematician Post Doc Nondestructive Eng - 250467
The Structural Materials Division of the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with experience in applied and computational mathematics to work on an on site contract at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Materials State Awareness branch. The successful candidate will work with UDRI and AFRL scientists to develop and apply quantitative and analytical methods to material systems relevant to nondestructive evaluation in the U. S. Air Force. A major goal of the current project is to utilize Matching Component Analysis (MCA) as a method of segmenting and registering the data from sensors of various modality. Prior work has shown that MCA can be used for transfer learning applications to enhance classification performance over traditional machine learning algorithms by combining real and simulated data using only salient features from both. We will explore this algorithm as a way of combining data to segment boundaries between regions of varying material property within the sample data set, resulting in a new machine learning tool for data segmentation and registration. The output of the algorithm will be used as an informative structural prior for Bayesian estimation of the component orientation distribution function (cODF) of each micro-texture region (MTR) within the sensor field of view. The post-doc researcher would be working on advancements of the MCA algorithm and development of a Bayesian inversion routine for MTR orientation characterization. This position is available immediately and will remain open until filled.
