Materials Scientist - Mechanics of Composites

Location: 

Clinton, NJ, US

Company:  ExxonMobil

Job Role Summary

ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company has an immediate opening at its Corporate Strategic Research laboratory in Clinton, New Jersey for a Member of Technical Staff in the area of solid mechanics of nonlinear and heterogeneous materials. The successful candidate will have in-depth knowledge in the physics and micro-mechanisms governing deformation, failure and long-term durability of various engineering materials, with preference given to specialization in polymer-matrix composite materials such as fiber-reinforced composites, nanocomposites and/or hierarchical materials. Demonstrated record in conducting mechanistic investigations of structure–mechanical property relationships is required.

 

ExxonMobil’s Corporate Strategic Research laboratory is a facility of over 200 scientists and engineers conducting fundamental research related to ExxonMobil’s Upstream, Downstream, and Chemical businesses. CSR features an international staff covering a broad range of scientific disciplines, close ties with academic institutions and national laboratories, and state-of-the-art analytical and support facilities. Its location in scenic western New Jersey provides high-quality public schools and convenient access to New York City, Princeton, and Philadelphia.

Job Role Responsibilities

The researcher will apply skills in the physics/micro-mechanisms of materials and tools such as theoretical and applied solid mechanics, and cutting-edge experimentation to elucidate the fundamental origins of static and dynamic (e.g. creep, fatigue) mechanical performance, and long-term durability of advanced materials such as hydrocarbon-based composites. Their research will be applied towards developing next-generation structural composites with targeted properties. The successful candidate will be expected to make substantial individual and collaborative contributions within multi-disciplinary, cross-functional teams, and to patent, publish their results in high-impact international journals. 

Job Requirements

  • Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Materials Science, Civil Engineering, Physics, or a related field
  • A track record of publications
  • The successful candidate will be expected to augment ExxonMobil’s knowledge-base in experimental material mechanics and polymer-based composites
