Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Job Location: Oak Ridge, TN

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is the largest US Department of Energy science and energy laboratory, conducting basic and applied research to deliver transformative solutions to compelling problems in energy and security. We believe our diverse capabilities span a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines, enabling the Laboratory to explore fundamental science challenges and to carry out the research needed to accelerate the delivery of solutions to the marketplace. The Manufacturing Systems Research (MSR) Group of the Engineering and Transportation Science Division (ETSD) at ORNL has a successful history supporting projects in the manufacturing (additive manufacturing and composites) and robotic (military and production) area. MSR team members have been key participants in projects involving the development of new additive manufacturing technologies (Big Area Additive Manufacturing and Large Scale Metal Additive Manufacturing) as well as demonstrations of the utility of additive manufacturing (development of 3D printed cars, tooling, and robotics). Opportunities in these areas are expected to grow over the next few years, requiring additional qualified staff to successfully perform these challenging and nationally important projects. Are you a mechanical engineer with a real passion for new technologies? We are looking for two research scientists with strong backgrounds in manufacturing science of advanced materials. You will work in a collaborative team environment to craft new manufacturing components and systems to support the Department of Energy's advanced manufacturing mission.

Major Duties/Responsibilities:
  • You will conduct software design, analysis, testing, and performance evaluation of robotic and additive manufacturing systems.
  • Your work will involve algorithm development, controls design, signal analysis and electrical system design (sensor selection, wiring, power electronics) working in close proximity to other mechanical and electrical engineers, material and computer scientists.
  • You will have the opportunity to work with minimal supervision and are encouraged to provide feedback and influence project direction through interaction with project team leadership.

    Qualifications Required:
  • The position requires a Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering, Material Science or related discipline.
  • Knowledge and proficiency in multi-physics modeling and simulation.
  • Knowledge and experience design of experiments for model validation.
  • Experience in additive manufacturing and/or composites is preferred.
  • Ability to assist with assembly of prototype and/or production testbeds for validation of simulations.
  • Strong material science and computational capabilities and solid applied "first-principles" in mechanics are essential.
  • Related background and expertise include multi-physics manufacturing process simulations, multi-phase reactive flow simulations, multi-scale computational materials and algorithm development. UT-Battelle is recognized by our employees and the community as an inclusive environment where diversity is valued and individuals and teams are inspired to contribute fully to the organization's success. ORNL is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants, including individuals with disabilities and protected veterans, are encouraged to apply.
