RESEARCH ENGINEER - SR. RESEARCH ENGINEER - CONTROL SYSTEMS
Job Code: 03-01255
Job Summary:
Join our Powertrain Engineering Division to pursue innovative control systems research. You will develop novel solutions for increasingly complex powertrain systems that reduce CO2 (greenhouse gas) production and improve efficiency. Bring your training and experience to bear in a fast-paced environment where you can see results first hand that make a difference. The target domain includes electric, hybrid, fuel cell, engine, transmission and aftertreatment powertrain systems in an increasingly connected and automated environment. Experience in this domain is a plus, but not essential. Experience applying complex control solutions professionally is essential. You will also be able to design experiments for characterization of powertrain components, lead projects, and publish and speak about the exciting results. Limited travel required ~15%.
Education/Experience:
Requires a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical Engineering with at least 3 years of experience. Must have at least a 3.0 GPA. Demonstrated proficiency and understanding of control theory and real-time control systems is required. Experience with dSPACE, Mototron, National Instruments or other similar platform(s) is required. An understanding of design of experiments (DoE) is required. An understanding of on-board diagnostic (OBD) concepts and regulations is required. Must have experience with the application of classical and modern methods to design of multivariable controllers. Experience with MATLAB, and Simulink programming is required; LabVIEW is a plus. Knowledge of engines and vehicles preferred. Exposure to aftertreatment/catalyst modeling and control preferred. A valid/clear driver's license is required.
