The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) group located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking two Mechanical Engineers! IDP supports ice drilling development and operations for the National Science Foundation (NSF). IDP is a small team, composed mostly of engineers that conceptualize, design, test, and ultimately operate drilling equipment in glacial environments in the polar regions and all over the world! In this exciting and fulfilling career you will find yourself designing novel solutions that result in discoveries of past climate change or subatomic particles from across the universe. For more information on IDP, please visit

IDP's history of supporting a diverse set of ice drilling and coring systems, rock drills, and associated support equipment ranges from small hand-held drills to rigs that drill through thousands of meters of ice to retrieve rock cores. The challenge of operating drills and systems in these environments requires a broad set of disciplines and skills from the team of people involved. This dynamic environment requires us to learn about new scientific advances, systems and technologies on a regular basis. This environment, coupled with meaningful research, provides an exciting career opportunity for any creative and motivated engineer!

The selected candidate will work closely with multidisciplinary teams of scientists, engineers and technicians to develop state-of-the art unique ice coring and drilling systems for use in the polar regions. The candidate will support the development of engineering requirements; system design; component procurement; part fabrication; and system assembly, test and operational use. This includes defining and conducting trade studies and leading the development of mechanical, electrical, electro-mechanical and thermal subsystems. Responsibilities may include leading test programs, procedure development, definition and development of unique test hardware, analysis of test data, and producing test reports. This position will also support the maintenance, problem resolution, and upgrade activities for legacy ice drilling systems and will maintain communications with internal and external partners.

NOTE: Selected candidates will be required to periodically deploy to remote camps in the polar regions for 1-3 month periods to provide technical support and field operation of equipment.


Desired skills include:
- Minimum of three (3) years' experience in mechanical system design.
- Experience in the operation, analysis and deployment of mechanical and electromechanical systems.
- Computer Aided Design - skill in using or the ability to quickly learn the use of SolidWorks.
- Experience with machine assembly, including troubleshooting and fabrication of fixtures or tooling.
- Skill in using Microsoft Office products - Word, Excel, PowerPoint.
- Demonstrated ability to work effectively in cross-functional teams.
- Strong verbal communication skills with the ability to make presentations to groups with various levels of expertise in the subject.
- Ability to prioritize and manage multiple tasks.
- Ability to work independently.

Additional Experience in the following is preferred:
- Experience in supporting mechanical systems in the field; i.e. commissioning mechanical and electromechanical systems, troubleshooting equipment, adjusting/repairing systems.
- Experience conducting Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) studies on mechanical components and systems.
- Knowledge and experience in fabrication and shop practices.
- Project Management experience, including estimating, defining work-flows and budgets, coordinating and tracking project activities, and writing progress reports.
- Experience or familiarity with Earned Value Management (EVM).
- Working knowledge and experience with control systems, electromechanical devices, and electronics; knowledge of LabVIEW software is a plus.
- Experience with Microsoft Project.
