Los Alamos National Laboratory Computational Mechanics Code Developer (R&D Engineer 3) in Los Alamos, New Mexico
What You Will Do
MST-8 is seeking an R&D Engineer 3 to lead the development and support of a suite of computational mechanics tools. The successful candidate will join the MST-8 group and be a member of the Materials Science in Radiation and Dynamics Extremes Modeling (REDM) team. The models to be supported allow for the study of the mechanical response and microstructure evolution of metals and metallic components subjected to extreme environments (mechanical loads, thermal loads, and irradiation). The REDM team focuses on multi-scale modeling and analysis of steels and advanced metals. Thus, the numerical tools to be supported range from discrete dislocation dynamics simulations codes, cluster dynamics codes, crystal plasticity-based polycrystal modeling tools and finite element simulation methods.
What You Need
Minimum Job Requirements:
Demonstrated knowledge of metals deformation behavior.
Documented record of technical achievement in a relevant engineering discipline, such as mechanical.
Strong oral and written communication skills, particularly in technical reports and presentations.
Strong knowledge of finite element tools.
Strong knowledge of crystal plasticity modeling methods
Experience in algorithm development (e.g., using Fast Fourier Transform based methods).
Education/Experience: Position requires a Master’s Degree in Engineering from an ABET accredited institution and 6 years of related experience; or, an equivalent combination of education and experience directly related to the occupation. A PhD in materials science, physics, chemistry, or a related engineering discipline is preferred.
Experience in GPU based programming.
Experience in parallel program development.
Note to Applicants: For technical questions related to this position contact L. Capolungo ( email@example.com )
Location: This position will be physically located in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Position commitment: Regular appointment employees are required to serve a period of continuous service in their current position in order to be eligible to apply for posted jobs throughout the Laboratory. If an employee has not served the time required, they may only apply for Laboratory jobs with the documented approval of their Division Leader. The position commitment for this position is 1 year.
