Composite Materials Modeling Expert

Job Description and Requirements

As the successful candidate you will hold a PhD degree or a Master’s degree in Computational Material Science or Mechanical Engineering, with a focus on polymer composite modeling and simulation from a recognized and approved program.

You will have at least 15 years of industrial or academic experience, including at least 10 years of experience working on composite materials modeling. You should have a strong knowledge and experience with finite element tools used in composite materials modeling (ANSYS, ABAQUS, DIGIMAT, COMSOL Multiphysics). You should have experience in molecular simulation (e.g., MEDEA) and multiscale modeling.

You will also have a record of publications in recognized international peer-reviewed journals and noticeable experience in business planning and evaluations of technical sales offers. Outstanding communication skills in English are a requirement.

Duties & Responsibilities:
You will be required to perform the following:

  • Identify, implement, and apply efficient computational methods for the predictive modeling of nonmetallic material and structures and lead collaborative R&D projects toward enabling such applications.
  • Propose and participate in new research programs and contribute to research strategies to expand the operating envelope of nonmetallic composite materials in Oil & Gas (O&G) applications.
  • Establish and manage collaborations with other units, department and external partners to accelerate the achievement of goals and maximize the impact of the research programs.
  • Train and mentor young scientists/engineers/technicians to acquire the technical know-how and expertise to become fully independent in leading technical tasks and projects.
  • Support through modeling the development of new materials, new composite products and manufacturing processes for the successful field implementation of high-temperature, high-pressure applications
  • You should remain up to date with the ongoing development in the field of specialization, be able to publish technical findings in international peer-reviewed journals, and write patents and perform technology landscaping in support of current and future research activities.
