    Test Engineer - Performance Tire Testing at Calspan

    Our friends at the Calspan Tire Research Facility (TIRF) in Buffalo, NY are looking for a test engineer, this new job posting can be found at: https://calspan.catsone.com/careers/...portalID=50135
    https://calspan.catsone.com/careers/index.php?m=portal&a=details&jobOrderID=9320071&po rtalID=50135

    For anyone that doesn't know, TIRF has done all the lab testing for the FSAE Tire Test Consortium and given the TTC a nice "student discount," since 2005. Putting on my TTC hat for a moment--if your team uses TTC tire data, then Calspan is a sponsor. I encourage you to run the Calspan logo on your car.

    I also noticed that Calspan has a variety of other engineering job openings, which can be found by truncating the URL after "=details"

    This tire test engineer position at Calspan TIRF is still open.

    I'll put in a brief plug for Buffalo NY. After many years of stagnation as a "rust belt" city, the area is really starting to bounce back, lots of new development and other investment in the last several years...and if you like hot wings we have those too.

    We race at Watkins Glen at the end of June... and then up to Mosport the week after. Maybe I can swing a trip inbetween.
