Engineer III, Standards and Calibration Lab – Fort Worth TX

Roles and Responsibilities

The Standards and Calibration Lab (S&CL) maintains measurement standards for physical properties other than dimensional measurement.  Included are electrical-electronic, pressure, force, gas and liquid flow, temperature, humidity, time, frequency, vibration, acoustic measurement and gas monitors. Also included are items of dimensional measurement having electronic readouts and/or interfaces.  The S&CL assures that Measurement & Test Equipment (M&TE) is accurate, capable, and reliable; and that all measurements are traceable to the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST), another National Lab, or to a recognized physical standard.
Standards and Calibration Engineer will have the following responsibilities:

  • Analyze measuring and test equipment (M&TE) to determine the calibration requirements.  Determine the functions to be verified and their specifications, the method to be used, and the measurement standards required.
  • Analyze requirements for measurement standards and make recommendations.
  • Analyze, evaluate, and document measurement uncertainty and laboratory calibration capability.
  • Perform engineering and statistical analyses of the equipment and historical data to determine appropriate calibration intervals to meet reliability goals.
  • Define, develop, and implement data and record requirements for calibration laboratory information database systems and automated calibration systems.
  • Perform laboratory and departmental administration and management. Document laboratory best practices.
  • Prepare laboratory documentation (calibration procedures, operating procedures, quality procedure, analysis spreadsheets, reference documents, and others).
  • Analyze and solve calibration problems using advanced mathematical and engineering knowledge.
  • Apply knowledge of national and international standard documents to the calibration business.  Relevant standards include, but are not limited, to ISO 9000 series, ISO 17025, ANSI/NCSL Z540, NSCL Recommended Practices, and BSR/ISO/ASQ Q10012.
