Job Summary:

Applies Integrated technical judgment-which requires using the scientific method to recognize and formulate problems, to collect data through observation and experimentation, and to formulate and test hypotheses• to anticipate, innovate, and deliver solutions to Sandia National Laboratories missions. Roots the work in the fundamentals of science and engineering while applying a deep understanding of engineering and scientific principles. Creates and applies scientific theories and laws and engineering methods used within scientific and engineering disciplines to develop or demonstrate new designs, concepts, materials, machines, products, processes, or systems. Uses physical and computational simulation, analysis, and evaluation as Inherent activities of development. Plans, conducts, and executes Sandia's science and engineering programs within the spectrum of fundamental research, development, or demonstration. Works with the project manager and the customer to negotiate and define system requirements that enable mission function and performance; develop system conceptual designs to meet those requirements; and define the necessary subsystems, components, and Interfaces to realize the system. Using a deep understanding of system operation and performance, performs functional decomposition of system requirements into subsystem-level performance requirements that are achievable within the cost and schedule constraints of a project. Provides system-level design architecture analysis that combines a number of

component parts or subsystems into a complete functional system. Defines component and system-level performance requirements and develops acceptance criteria for the subsystems and system. Evaluates competing characteristics between system elements to determine the most effective Integrated system solution.
