Job Description

The Research Engineer will develop and apply atomistic and mesoscale computational tools to materials science topics including the simulation of functional material properties in electrochemical systems such as fuel cells and electrolyzers as well as other Bosch applications such as sensors, polymer components, semiconductor devices, and magnets. This work will enable mechanistic understanding of materials down to the atomistic level, rapid material screening, identification of degradation mechanisms and mitigation strategies, and quantitative analysis of process kinetics in different materials systems. Particular emphasis is placed on coupling atomistic-level insights with mesoscale and continuum-level models. The Research Engineer may need to perform quantum chemistry, DFT, and molecular dynamics simulation of organic materials (polymers and molecules), inorganic materials (alloys, semiconductors, oxides, etc), and/or their combination.

Primary responsibilities:

Research in computational material science studying a wide variety of materials for electrochemical, sensor, semiconductor devices, and coating materials

Atomistic method and tool development and quantitative property prediction for existing or hypothetical materials, aiming to achieving integration with multiscale and multiphysics simulation chains

Screen materials for further experimentation, and interpret simulations to provide concrete takeaways for product development

Collaboration with experimentalist and modeling partners worldwide within Bosch and with university partners

A cover letter highlighting your fit to this role is highly encouraged.
