Positions at APRI


Mechanical Engineer

Advanced Projects Research, Inc. is seeking an enthusiastic engineer for project and product development work related to APRI's propulsion and laser diagnostics programs using advanced 3D computer aided design tools. This individual will work in a team environment where the proper use of parametric design tools is both recognized and valued. APRI is a research and development organization which focuses on providing innovative and creative solutions to its customers through the use of systems engineering techniques, engineering fundamentals, and sound engineering judgment.


This position is directed toward junior engineers with aspirations for growth into a senior position within 2-4 years. These individuals will ultimately be responsible for system and subsystem development for the complete life cycle of a project from specification development, conceptual design, detailed design, and manufacturing planning to qualification testing and product delivery. The ability to use advanced, parametric, 3D CAD tools to provide rapid conceptual design images in support of APRI's proposal writing efforts is expected.


A bachelor's degree in engineering with either academic or professional product development experience is required to successfully accomplish the responsibilities of this position. The successful candidates should have demonstrated ability to work independently, and as part of a team, and should be willing to accept increasing levels of responsibility. This individual will be asked to perform supporting analysis of design work over a wide range of fields including fluid-flow, geometric optics, heat transfer, and solid mechanics. It is not expected that the candidate will have a thorough grasp of each of these subjects, only a strong willingness to be challenged, work with company experts in these areas, and learn the underlying physics to understand the design trade-offs. U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status required.
