 APS is actively seeking to fill the following positions in our Groton, CT office.

Ocean Engineer / Mathematician / Scientist

Applied Physical Sciences (APS) is seeking a PhD or Master’s graduate with expertise in Oceanography, Physics, and Applied Mathematics.  APS seeks a highly motivated scientist to support research, development and engineering efforts, focusing on ocean wave measurement, modeling, and prediction.  Successful candidates will have experience in several of the following areas: physical oceanography, wave propagation, sensing systems, fluid-structure interaction, modeling and simulation, applied physics and applied mathematics.

This position will involve working closely with junior and senior staff on a range of challenging design and analysis efforts, developing techniques for assimilation of wave data from multiple instruments and development of ocean surface wave modeling.  The successful applicant will have skills in - computational modeling, data analysis and statistics; in-depth knowledge of experimental wave measurements (X-Band radar, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), and/or directional wave buoys); and broad understanding of the physical processes associated with ocean surface waves, including working experience with wave models.  Representative efforts would include developing analytical and numerical models of ocean surface waves using both linear and nonlinear methods; assisting in the development, implementation and validation of specialized analysis methodologies; participating in the design, planning and conduct of laboratory and field experiments; performing test data reduction, analysis and assessment; developing and evaluating testing strategies; and conducting engineering design for implementation of ocean wave modeling in broader systems of systems.  This position will involve working closely with senior staff on complex problems in the development of advanced numerical methods for the prediction of ocean surface waves, wave propagation modeling, and signal processing.  Proficiency in algorithm development and computational modeling in MATLAB, C++ and/or FORTRAN is desired.

Job Functions:
•      Assist in the formulation of new algorithms
•      Develop numerical models to simulate the performance of complex systems
•      Apply numerical methods to support design analyses
•      Assist in the testing and evaluation of codes

Position Requirements:
•      PhD/MS in oceanography, engineering or applied mathematics
•      Highly proficient in MATLAB and supporting programming environments
•      Experience in developing and applying numerical simulation models
•      Prefer experience with advanced meshing algorithms and computational geometry.

APS, a wholly owned subsidiary of the General Dynamics Corporation, offers a small company environment including competitive salary, excellent benefits, and comfortable working conditions.  An immediate position is open in the preferred location of Groton, CT, with consideration of the other APS locations.  Candidates must possess or be able to obtain a DoD security clearance.

Qualified applicants are invited to submit a resume to Janet Collings via Email.

Acoustic Scientist

Applied Physical Sciences (APS) is looking for a recent PhD or Master’s graduate with expertise in Acoustics, Physics, or Applied Mathematics.
