Senior Scientist Virtual R&D

Job Description

We are seeking a Senior Scientist to provide technical expertise, depth, and project leadership in the area of modeling and simulation. The position entails working with business unit teams to understand and define modeling and simulation problems and how the results will be operationalized. The focus of the techniques will be on computational fluid dynamics and machine learning. The candidate will have advanced skills in these spaces and a demonstrated history of solving complex problems through the application of these tools.

Candidates should have extensive scientific and technology experience and notable accomplishments in modeling and simulation as well as demonstrated skills in the use of associated tools such as CFD software packages, machine learning and scripting (OpenFOAM and/or Python). Experience in application of these capabilities to industrial applications is preferred.

The candidate will act as a source of direction, training and guidance for other team members. The person should be knowledgeable in industry best practices in their area of expertise and use resources outside of K-C to deliver solutions. The successful candidate will be a self-starter expert with the ability to work at the front end of data science development, but just as importantly will have a demonstrated ability to drive and implement technical process through strong collaborative interaction with internal teams and external partners.

Responsibilities :

Assess business problems and develop a technical approach to using modeling and simulation to address the issue that considers time constraints, resource limitations and any operational issues. Independently and as part of a team develop approaches and solutions to improving the modeling and simulation capability of the team, including data management. Work with internal IT teams, vendors and other internal parties to execute solutions. Keep abreast of latest developments in data science analysis: statistical techniques, emerging software platforms, and data experimental design. Research new techniques/methods to drive biological data manipulation and integration with other programs. Leveraging technical depth, coach junior team members to build the department’s scientific talent in the area of data science. Provide protection to technologies, processes, materials, and products through appropriate use of internal technical reports, patents, and trade secrets. Conduct all communications and transactions with the utmost integrity and honesty to build an unimpeachable business reputation. Ensure communication of project plans and results to partners, customers, and other team members. Contribute to an environment in which all team members are respected regardless of their individual differences and are motivated to improve both their individual and team contributions to achieve desired business results.

A preferred Candidate possesses an advanced degree in relevant major scientific or engineering discipline from an accredited college or university. Relevant degrees include: Physics, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering or Mathematics. 5-10 years research experience in a variety of technical assignments with emphasis in the application of modeling and simulation tools in the solving of business and operational issues. Demonstrated expertise in the use of commercial or open-source computational fluid dynamics packages in solving problems. Experience with meshing complex geometries for CFD is preferred, as well as computational geometry tools and approaches. Experience in porous media flow in highly porous materials is a plus. Advanced knowledge of scientific principles, scientific analysis, and project management. A working knowledge of the physics of fluid dynamics and associated problems. The ability to use the fundamental physics of systems to define modeling requirements and underlying relationships inherent in a problem. Previous experience or capability to develop subroutines for commercial code (e.g., PDE solvers) would be highly preferred. Experience with scripting in OpenFOAM, R, Mathematica, Matlab, MathCad and/or Python. Experience working on problems in an industrial environment is preferred, particularly in the areas of high-speed manufacturing and consumer products. Demonstrated expertise in the use of commercial or open-source machine learning packages would be beneficial. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are required to convey complex research in a high impact manner to scientists as well as business leaders. Skills in the areas of collaboration, innovation, decisiveness, and conflict resolution are important for success as is working with blended teams consisting of employees, vendors, and consultants.
