Requisition No:            3.13.17

Project Overview:

Excet, Inc. is in search of a Corrosion Engineer who will work as a member of the technical team performing and leading research, development and testing in the areas of marine corrosion, marine engineering, materials, electrochemistry, coatings and environmental effects as related to the Navy surface ships, submarines, marine structures, aircraft and shore facilities.  Ability to lead is critical to this position.

Candidates must be able to work with cross-functional groups involving government and industry partners to develop, test, manufacture and transition products or technologies to practical fleet applications and solutions. The position is full time in Key West, FL.

Specific Duties include, but are not limited to:

  • Develop new experimental design and/or technologies at an R&D facility for marine corrosion, marine engineering, materials, electrochemistry, coatings, biofouling remediation and environmental effects
  • Will be expected to work as a Project Leader in specific corrosion science and engineering projects. The emphasis revolves around the design and implementation of improved technology for legacy and next generation Naval platforms, but also closely explores the needs of life-cycle extension, improved service life, affordability, condition based maintenance and new technology development and implementation.
