Working at MIT offers opportunities, an environment, a culture – and benefits – that just aren't found together anywhere else. If you're curious, motivated, want to be part of a unique community, and help shape the future – then take a look at this opportunity.
RESEARCH ENGINEER, Chemical Engineering, to conduct research in the Braatz Lab, with an emphasis in computational fluid dynamics. The most important duties are the mathematical formulation of multiphase flow model for flow-induced crystallization of polymers that account for polymorph nucleation and anisotropic growth; software implementation of a computational fluid dynamics model for multiphase flow with requisite numerical stability; and preparing a software tutorial that is sufficiently clear that others can apply the software to simulate blown film extrusion. The number of faculty affected by these duties is two.
Job Requirements REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in engineering; at least two years of relevant research experience; skills in multiphase computational fluid dynamics; self-motivation; ability to work independently and take initiative; good written and oral communication skills; and discretion and good judgment with confidential information/issues. Strong preference will be given to those with skills in computational fluid dynamics software (OpenFOAM and Fluent). Job #15858
Internal Number: 15858
