Corning Research & Development Corporation in Erwin, NY seeks Process Simulation Scientist responsible for creating mathematical models to develop a fundamental understanding of glass melting and forming processes, new melting and forming systems designs, and process troubleshooting and analysis. Duties include: modeling and simulating glass melting and forming processes, including batch interactions, mass and heat transfer, direct and indirect platinum heat, and mixing; leveraging mathematical modeling with process engineering to deliver new products and process improvements, including process designs, variability reductions, and cost and yield improvements; acting as a glass melting process expert to bridge the gap between process experimentation and fundamental scientific principles; performing numerical simulations using in-house coding and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software; standardizing, simplifying, and improving our mathematical modeling portfolio to result in widespread usage; creating Graphical User Interface (GUI) macros and programming routines to increase the relevancy of data; validating mathematical modeling results with design of experiments in pilot runs and manufacturing processes; and documenting results in technical reports and invention disclosures.
Requires up to 10% domestic and international travel (Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, China). Position requires Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering. Must include prior experience with or academic exposure to: applied research using fundamental principles of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, or heat transfer; using numerical simulation software (e.g. ANSYS, ABAQUS, FLUENT, COMSOL, or ADINA); modeling fluid flow and thermodynamics to measure the interactions of deforming and moving bodies; and publishing a minimum of one scientific paper in a peer reviewed journal.
