Provides structural engineering services for new construction and rehabilitations on large, complex river navigation (locks and dams), flood control reservoir and local flood protection projects using established U.S. Army Corps of Engineer design criteria and directives; national building codes and standards; and engineering principles and judgment.
Performs analysis and design applying standard engineering methods and techniques in the performance of preliminary and final design including stress and stability analysis, structural steel design, steel connection design, reinforced concrete design and development of detailing for steel and concrete features.
As part of design or evaluation of various structures, prepares Design Documentation Report (Design Basis); design calculations utilizing structural design and analysis software including STAAD Pro, ANSYS, FB-MultiPier, PCA sP Concrete Suite, MathCAD, and EXCEL.
Prepares construction contract documents for various structural features for challenging and complex Civil Works projects for river navigation systems, flood control reservoir projects and, local flood protection projects.
Works with CADD Technicians to develop drawings utilizing CADD and BIM software; determines requirements for technical aspects of project specifications; and prepares amendments and engineering revisions.
Coordinates structural aspects of projects with multi-disciplined engineering team, Operations personnel and Construction Engineering personnel responsible for related specialized phases of the projects to arrive at functional designs and solutions to technical and operational problems.
Performs role of Project Engineer in design by coordinating the efforts of multi-disciplined teams, developing and tracking budgets, preparation of scopes of work, ensuring quality processes are followed, and ensuring contract documents are complete. In construction, provides support to the Construction Engineering staff by coordinating the review of transmittals and RFI's by the engineering team and assisting with the resolution of construction issues.
Performs inspections and assessments of the District's infrastructure including hydraulic steel structures, concrete structures, and bridges; and develops memos and reports with recommendations based on field observations.
Finite Element Analysis experience preferred but not required.
Civilian employees serve a vital role in supporting the Army mission. They provide the skills not readily available in the military, but crucial to support military operations. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is an innovative, transformative organization providing engineering solutions to customers worldwide. Working at the Corps as a civilian employee means making a direct contribution to war fighters and their families; supporting overseas contingency operations; developing technology and systems that save the lives of soldiers and civilians; providing disaster relief; and protecting and enhancing the environment and the national economy.

About U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Pittsburgh District
The Pittsburgh District is one of seven districts that comprise the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. A civil works district, we have an Army colonel assigned as District Commander, but our technical chiefs, functional chiefs and most of our more than 600 employees are civilians. Like all Corps civil works districts, the Pittsburgh District’s boundaries are defined by the watershed basins for which we are responsible. Pittsburgh’s 26,000 square miles include portions of western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, eastern Ohio, western Maryland and southwestern New York. Our jurisdiction includes more than 328 miles of navigable waterways, 23 navigation locks and dams, 16 multi-purpose flood damage reduction reservoirs, 42 local flood damage reduction projects and other projects to protect and enhance water resources and wetlands. With more than 140 years of experience, the Pittsburgh District has developed expertise to accomplish its varied civil works missions in the areas of navigation, flood damage reduction, recreation, environmental restoration, hydropower, storm damage reduction, regulatory, water supply and emergenc...y response. The Pittsburgh District is known as the Headwaters District because it includes the upper 127 miles of the Ohio River and the drainage basins of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers which join at the Point in Pittsburgh to form the Ohio Rivers. “Headwaters” also acknowledges Pittsburgh’s role as a district of engineering firsts within the Corps of Engineers.http://www.lrp.usace.army.mil/
