Modeling and Simulation Engineer

Modeling and Simulation Engineer

The Modeling and Simulation Engineer is part of a multidisciplinary product development team, or as a specialized analyst, responsible for developing and maintaining new or improved physics-based models and simulation techniques. The Modeling and Simulation Engineer develops virtual prototypes of new products and optimizes and validates designs using computational tools.

Responsibilities:
• Analyze, design, develop and maintain products and assist in their commercialization.
• Scope new or improved products, evaluate feasibility, and help specify the engineering product. Estimate the development, validation, and documentation effort in cooperation with the Project Manager or Project Lead.
• Integrate, analyze, and evaluate system, subsystem and element design and analysis. Develop and apply modeling and simulation technologies to specific needs of the project.
• Conduct research and provide recommendations for development, evaluation and verification of modeling efforts and criteria.
• Specify, develop, validate, and maintain physics-based models of systems, subsystems, and elements.
• Validate and improve the robustness and performance of products through modeling and simulation. Help implement, test, and sustain the product.
• Define testing procedures for models, algorithms, workflows, and products. Conduct and coordinate tests, document results and make presentations to project teams and customers. Provide timely corrective actions on defects.
• Investigate and propose new development areas in the Modeling and Simulation Engineering domains. Keep abreast of novel technical concepts and markets. Adopt new practices as appropriate.
• Create and maintain project documentation.
• Participate in technical reviews and audits of projects, including requirements, specifications, designs, algorithms, codes, qualification and test results, and other artifacts.
• Contribute technical content for product documentation and training material. Provide training and support to customers and field representatives.
• Provide advanced methodology and algorithmic support for commercial products and services, in particular as InTouch subject matter expert.
• Make presentations to technical and management audiences.
• Contribute to design standards and support best practices and design re-use.
• Organize internal seminars and participate in industry forums, conferences and associations related to modeling and simulation. Author technical reports, papers, articles, and presentations.
• Contribute to innovation activities and university relationships. Author patent and trade secret memos.
• Share expertise via Eureka and special interest groups. Build informal network throughout the organization. Mentor others as required.
• Maintain familiarity with company technology, organization, and business.
• Comply with Sarbanes-Oxley requirements as defined in the risk control matrix.

Requirements:
• Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Civil Engineering, or Engineering Mechanics; Fresh-out or recent Ph.D. graduates with 0-3 years’ postdoctoral or industrial experience are welcome to apply; B.S. degree in Engineering
• In-depth understanding of continuum mechanics, nonlinear dynamics, plasticity, fracture mechanics, the finite element method, failure analysis, engineering design concepts, and materials engineering
• Extensive experience in constitutive modeling of metallic and non-metallic materials, and simulation of large-scale structures subjected to static or dynamic loads is desired. Experience in the Oil & Gas industry is preferred.
• Solid knowledge of system modeling, controls, software in the loop simulation, hardware in the loop simulation, Matlab Simulink
• Excellent oral and written communication skills in English
• Autonomous and creative approach towards challenging problems
