Space-age careers at Boeing
PLASMA PHYSICS
SEATTLE AREA
Experimental physicist with Ph.D. in physics for the staff of the
Plasma Physics Laboratory, Boeing Scientific Research Labora-
tories, to conduct studies in the field of Basic Experimental Micro
Wave Plasma Physics, Basic Transport Properties of Plasmas
and in Theoretical and Experimental Quantum Plasma Physics.
OPERATIONS & WEAPONS SYSTEMS ANALYSIS
WICHITA
M.S. or Ph.D. in math, physics, electrical or aeronautical engi-
neering to obtain data on the anticipated operational environment
of the devices under study by Advanced Design Staff. Devise
analytical models of procedures describing operation of the de-
vices in order to estimate the operational utility of same under
study. Studies compare Advanced Design products with other
companies and demonstrate anticipated utility to the customer.
ELECTRONICS-TELEMETRY
SEATTLEAREA
This year, engineering and science alumni will find more
challenging and rewarding careers than ever at Boeing.
Advanced nzissile and space-age programs are expanding, and
the proportion of engineers and scientists to Boeing's total
employment is growing steadily. Boeing programs include the
Dyna-Soar boost-glide vehicle, Minuteman solid-propellant
ICBM, BOMARC defense missile system, B-52G missile bomber,
KC-135 jet tanker-transport, the Boeing 707 jetliner, and
lunar, orbital and interplanetary systems and advanced
research projects. A few of the many immediate openings are
listed below:
ADVANCED CONFIGURATION DESIGN                  WICHITA AREA
M.S. or Ph.D. in A.E. to create configuration of new vehicles pro-
posed by potential military or civilian customers. Creative design
of vehicles based on general parameters of missions (payload,
performance, etc.). In addition to configuration, special features
such as handling payload (i.e., cargo, passengers) and comparison
with competitors' proposals are investigated.
INFRARED                                       SEATTLE AREA
Electrical engineer or physicist with advanced degree to set-up
and direct an Infrared System Group involved in: (1) Studies
and analyses of infrared systems, techniques and phenomena,
(2) Definition of models and parametric relationships, and (3)
Synthesis of advanced infrared sub-systems (search, track, termi-
nal guidance, mapping, surveillance, and scientific instrumenta-
tion) for integration into larger systems.
ELECTRONICS-RELIABILITY                        SEATTLE AREA
Electrical engineer with B.S. degree minimum (graduate work or
equivalent experience desired) to organize and manage reli-
ability programs; to establish requirements, evaluate reliability
data and initiate corrective action for missile components and
tactical test equipment.
ELECTRONICS-DIGITAL COMPUTER
SEATTLE AREA
Engineers with advanced E.E. degree or particularly applicable
experience to design and integrate digital computers in advanced
military and space programs, involving internal logic design of
the computers and the external organization of the associated
equipment used in the guidance and control system.
ENGINEERING ANALYSIS & PROGRAMMING
SEATTLE
Mathematicians or engineers with B.S. to Ph.D. degrees to work
in engineering computing and analysis areas. Analysis positions
involve correlation and conversion matrix studies, trajectory
  simulation programs, error analysis and simulation studies and
  many others. Computing positions involve programming a wide
  variety of complex engineering problems to be solved with high-
  speed electronic data processing machines--digital and analog.
6
B.S.E.E. with good knowledge of telemetry systems, transducers,
and systems providing inputs into telemetry systems, to work on
telemetry systems integration. This requires ability to represent
the company in meetings with the customers and associate
contractors. *
ELECTRO-MAGNETICS
SEATTLE AREA
Ph.D. in electrical engineering or physics to direct and partici-
pate in the work of a research group engaged in the theoretical
and experimental investigation of the propagation and reflection
of electro-magnetic waves in the presence of a plasma.
WELDING ENGINEERING
SEATTLE AREA
Engineers with degree in Met.E., Mech.E., E.E. or equivalent, to
maintain weld equipment, design tools, develop techniques and
direct proper use of this equipment, and establish processes for
all types of welds used in the unit, including weld settings for
qualification programs.
PERFORMANCE & STABILITY & CONTROL ANALYSIS
SEATTLE AREA
Aeronautical engineers at B.S. and M.S. level to conduct perform-
ance analysis and stability and control analysis. Each field is
intimately associated with flight testing and wind tunnel testing.
Performance assignments include preparation of sales presenta-
tions, operating instructions and preliminary design work in
connection with new aircraft; stability and control assignments
cover wing and tail design as well as studies concerning detailed
control systems.
GEOASTROPHYSICS
SEATTLE AREA
Theoretical physicists or astronomers with Ph.D. in physics or
astronomy on the staff of the Geoastrophysics Laboratory, Boeing
Scientific Research Laboratories, to carry out theoretical research
studies in the field of Geoastrophysics, particularly in connection
with the phenomenology and physics of the planetary system.
Excellent support is available for research in Solar Physics, Solar
Terrestrial relationships and Upper Atmosphere Physics.
Advantages you'll enjoy at Boeing include up-to-the-minute
facilities, unexcelled research equipment, insurance and
retirement programs, and a company-paid graduate study
program (M.A. and Ph.D.) designed to help you get ahead
faster.
