Job Description:


This position consists of requirements that are twofold. These requirements include:

  • research Soldier protective systems and the response from ballistic loading conditions;
  • develop computational models for the response of Soldier protective equipment and the human body subject to ballistic loading conditions.

The environment of interest is in the response of the human body subject to ballistic loading conditions.  Support tasks are complex and require the application of advanced physical, biological, engineering, and mathematical principles.



Core duties and responsibilities include the following, but are not limited to: 

  • Conduct finite element analysis (FEA) of the impact to a human wearing personnel protective equipment (PPE).
  • Develop constitutive model for biological tissue informed by microstructural material properties.
  • Develop numerical analysis techniques to couple mechanical FEA to network models of neural behavior.
  • Characterize the response of biological materials.
  • Characterize the response of Soldier protective materials/systems.
  • Prepare and/or present presentations and written documents summarizing efforts in Government format for Form 1 approval (process of instruction provided by COR as GFI). Upon TO COR request, Contractor personnel shall present the information to the ARL staff, universities, private corporations, research institutes, national laboratories, or other Government research centers.


  • Scientist/Engineer
  • Engineering degree

Education and Experience:

  • Minimum of a Bachelor of Science with 10+ years of experience OR a Masters and five years of experience OR a recent graduated Ph.D.
  • Experience as Scientist and/or Engineer
  • Knowledge of the mechanical response of biological systems
  • Experience in experimental and computational mechanics of materials
  • Experience in experimental mechanics of biological tissue
  • Familiarity with constitutive behavior of human tissue and bone, and appropriate numerical analysis techniques for these materials
  • Experience in writing proposals, reports, technical program summaries, PowerPoint presentations, and journal publications

Travel Requirements:

  • Travel for training as well as customer support is as needed, but not to exceed 1 week per month.

Security Requirements:

  • Must be a US Citizen with the ability to obtain a US Government security clearance
  • Current clearance is required


  • Competitive market-based salary, commensurate with experience and education
  • Comprehensive benefits package available

About our client, the Army Research Laboratory (ARL):

For more than 50 years, in laboratories belonging to the Army Materiel Command (AMC) and their antecedents in the Technical Corps, civilians have conducted the great majority of the Army's basic science programs, whether as in-house scientists and engineers or as contractors in private industry and academia. Among their many successes, these civilians helped develop the proximity fuse; worked to develop ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer), the first operational, general purpose, electronic digital computer; grew some of the first synthetic large quartz crystals; and developed the titanium alloy T1-6A1-4V. Currently, ARL scientists and engineers are pioneering research in such areas as neuroergonomics, energetic materials and propulsion, individual warfighter protection, energy science, electronics technologies, network sciences, virtual interfaces and synthetic environments and autonomous systems.

 ARL continues reaching out to "partner" with leading researchers in industry and academia, while it is also reaching out to the active Army to ensure that programs produce advanced technologies that support Soldiers in the field today - and in the future.

 National defense is one of the most critical duties performed by the federal government for the American people. Cutting-edge technology research and development offer incredible potential to improve the Army's chances of surviving and winning any future conflicts. ARL, as the Army's corporate or central laboratory for combat materiel, will play a constructive, key role in the national defense as it executes its strategies to take full advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead.
