AID presents an exciting opportunity to work for a growing yet established consulting firm located in central New Jersey, offering professional services in non-destructive testing and evaluation (NDT/NDE) of highway infrastructure (bridges and pavements), pavement evaluation and design, geotechnical design and subsurface investigation, subsurface and utility mapping, and forensic studies. AID owns and operates an array of NDT equipment, including a Laser Crack Measurement System (LCMS), Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD), various air-launched and ground-coupled Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) antennas, and many others such as a high-speed profiler and walking profilers. In addition, AID runs its own soils, asphalt, and concrete materials testing laboratory.
This is a full-time position with full benefits for a qualified NDT engineer. The candidate should have a B.S.C.E. degree or higher (M.S.C.E. preferred) with thorough knowledge of NDT technologies applied in civil engineering.
He/she should be well-versed with NDT testing and analysis methods that include GPR, Subsurface utility Engineering (SUE), Impact Echo (IE), Surface Analysis of Seismic Waves (SASW), pavement testing and evaluation. Knowledge of other NDT technologies such as Infrared Thermography, Electrical Resistivity, Ultrasonic Testing, FWD, LCMS or others is highly desirable. It is also preferable that the candidate has knowledge of geotechnical engineering and geophysical engineering. Effective oral and written communication skills are required.
The immediate responsibilities of the successful candidate may include but not be limited to QA/QC of NDT engineering design projects as well as executing such projects. These projects typically involve conducting site reconnaissance visits and performing NDT testing; evaluating the existing condition of pavements; locating subsurface utilities, analyzing conventional and NDT test data (e.g., analysis of GPR data, LCMS and backcalculation of FWD data, etc.); preparing proposals and compiling cost estimates; as well as, preparing technically and grammatically sound project reports. The candidate is also expected to supervise and manage other staff members and participate in marketing and business development of the company.
B.S. or higher degree in Civil Engineering with strong NDT background
At least 5 years of civil engineering and NDT work experience (with references)
Experience in infrastructure testing and evaluation
Proficiency in technical writing and verbal communications
Proficiency in MS Office suite
Proficiency in NDT software (RADAN, GRED HD, SpaMgr, RoadDoctor)
Knowledge of C++, Matlab or other programming languages is desirable
Additional Salary Information: Competitive salary commensurate with experience.
