Independently determines and performs operations required to calibrate and certify physical/mechanical Measuring & Test Equipment (M&TE), maintaining traceability to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), or by reference to fundamental constants of nature. These calibrations may include, but are not limited to, the following disciplines: electrical, dimensional, thermodynamic, mass, force, pressure, and torque - in both a field and laboratory environment.

This open position is for a Technician primarily in the Force discipline in support of MSFC programs like Space Launch Systems (SLS). The MSFC Metrology and Calibration Laboratory operates several primary level force machines with capabilities up to 5 million pounds of force. The Force Discipline requires extensive physical effort, moving and adapting load cells up to several thousand pounds of mass. The technician will be required to pass a physical evaluation and achieve certifications including but not limited to Overhead Crane, Rigging, and Forklift.

Major Duties:

   Utilize calibration methods and techniques based on principles of measurement science, technical analysis of measurement problems, in consideration of accuracy and precision requirements.
   Identify magnitude of error sources contributing to uncertainty of results to determine reliability of measurement process in quantitative terms.
   Diagnose and repair malfunctions in complex M&TE using theories of operation, block diagrams, schematics, logic trees, and software diagnostics to the component level.
   Provide training to other technicians on metrology principles, resolving technical problems, and complicated measurement theory.
   Inspect measuring and test equipment for preventive maintenance, cleanliness, and safety requirements, analyze and interpret results of measurements and calibrations using mathematical formulas, and document results of measurements and calibrations on calibration certificates and calibration correction charts.
   Other duties include creating calibration procedures, selecting suitable substitution of standard M&TE, and entering documentation into computer systems.
   This individual shall perform any and all duties assigned by the Laboratory Manager, within their scope of knowledge, in the performance of the contract.


This position requires an Associate degree in Metrology or Electronics, or equivalent technical training (Military or Civilian) and 5-7 years minimum experience (II) or 7-10 years (III) in metrology or a related field, or any equivalent combination of education/experience.

For our current needs, experience in the disciplines of Force, Flow, Pressure, and other Physical or Mechanical disciplines. Salary will be commensurate with direct experience, education, and discipline capability. Salary range for this posting is estimated to be $26.00 to $35.00 per hour based on experience and skill levels.

The Metrology and Calibration Laboratory (MCL) at Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) provides NASA/MSFC programs, projects, and infrastructure with advanced metrology and calibration support, assuring NASA maintains the most technically advanced and properly applied measurement concepts and processes.

The MSFC mission involves science and engineering measurements in many specialized and highly complex disciplines. In many of these supported measurements, the MCL retains the only capability in NASA, and in a few, the only capability in the nation. To meet these needs, our team must maintain technical excellence across a wide range of disciplines, be customer responsive, and willing to meet new challenges that arise daily.
