The Technology & Engineering organization is comprised of the global engineering function, several focused centers of expertise, and our advanced Research & Development Facility – the Research Center. By combining a passion for science with precision engineering, we create smart, sustainable solutions that prove we can do the big things the right way.
The postdoctoral program is of limited length (1-2 years in duration). The program will build expertise and experience and make valuable professional connections in an industrial research and development environment through the Postdoctoral research program at the Raytheon Technologies Research Center.
The Solid and Structural Mechanics group at Raytheon Technologies Research Center (RTRC) is seeking qualified applicants to join the group as a Post-Doctoral Researcher. The candidate is expected to provide technical contributions in the area of mechanics of materials, thermo-mechanical analysis, material processing simulation, microstructure analysis, and fracture/fatigue analysis.
The activities will include multiscale modeling and analysis of advanced alloys with application to industrial structures and processes. The candidate will have exceptional communication skills, capable of interacting with RTRC senior management as well as members of the technical staff. The candidate must be able to provide timely, accurate and detailed reports and presentations.
Qualifications & Competencies:
- Proficiency in the following is required: (1) Constitutive modeling of metals and alloys, and (2) Linear and nonlinear Finite Element Analysis (FEA) in ANSYS or ABAQUS including writing user material subroutines
- Proficiency in the following is desirable: (1) Knowledge of microstructure-scale models such as crystal plasticity and finite deformation, and (2) Experience with fracture mechanics
- Excellent communication skills using Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint; high energy; team player
Candidates for this position are required to have recently completed a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering / Aerospace Engineering / Engineering Mechanics / Materials Science & Engineering or a related technical field. 3.0 GPA is preferred.
