Position Summary

We are looking for a creative, focused self-starter to work as a software developer in the area of mechanical systems. You would join our mechanics development team and work in a collaborative development environment, on projects to develop and enhance models of motion, vibrations, friction, and durability in automotive applications and beyond. As GT maintains an integrated and multi-physics development approach, you will also collaborate with application engineers on product design, and with developers of other physical domains such as fluid flow, thermal, electrical, and controls on multi-physics solutions.

Job Responsibilities

  • Develop, enhance, test, and maintain rigid/flexible multi-body dynamics (MBD), kinematics, contact mechanics, and tribology models applicable to dynamics, durability, noise, vibration, friction, and wear issues in powertrain, vehicle, and general mechanical subsystems as well as the control of these systems
  • Work, within a mature platform and mathematical solution architecture, on projects focused on performance, scalability, user-experience, and 3D visualization aspects of MBD models
  • Test computational models in the context of integrated simulations of real-life systems aimed at addressing customers’ product design, performance, and durability issues
  • Collaborate with other developers and application engineers on functional and I/O requirements and design of models. Adaptation of models to user requirements
  • Numerical methods for solving systems governed by ODEs and DAEs

 Education, Experience, and Skills

Any combination of education and experience that would likely provide the required knowledge and abilities is qualifying. A typical way to obtain the knowledge and abilities would be:

  • Ph.D. or MS in Mechanical Engineering or Ph.D. candidate who has completed defense of his/her dissertation with a focus on modeling of rigid/flexible MBD systems.
  • 2+ years of academic or industry experience (4+ years of industry experience for MS candidates) with computational modeling of mechanical systems, vibration, NVH, multi-physics systems and controls
  • Programming experience with a focus on scientific computing (Fortran, C, C++, Python, or Matlab)
  • Theory and implementation of the finite element method
  • Technologies for enhancement of model performance and scalability, such as model reduction, sparse systems, and parallelization

Additional Qualifications Desired

  • Familiarity with commercial/research MBD tools
  • Familiarity with powertrain subsystems in conventional and electrified vehicles and/or other industrial machinery
  • Data-based modeling (Neural networks, machine learning), meta-models
  • Optimization algorithms

Salary and Benefits

  • GT offers competitive pay, vacation, sick and personal days, and a work environment that allows you to grow and prosper.
  • We offer best-in-class health benefits for you and your dependents.
  • We offer a 401k and Roth 401k retirement plans.
  • We provide an onsite fitness center.
