Senior Research Scientist - Material and Lattice Characterization

Company: Carbon, Inc.
Location: Redwood City
Posted on: May 14, 2022

Job Description:

Working at the intersection of hardware, software and molecular science, Carbon is committed to delivering on the promise of 3D printing, enabling commercial customers to go beyond basic prototyping to 3D manufacturing. - Our company is built on the idea that diverse fields of study must come together to solve intractable problems. We have grand ambitions to create technology that will influence industry around the world.

We are seeking a highly motivated, creative and hands-on mechanical engineer with a data science/computer science background to push our boundaries of understanding of lattice performance at Carbon. This position will interface heavily with application engineers to test and characterize lattice dynamic and static performance to help them succeed in achieving design wins. Ideally this candidate can have a mechanical engineer or relevant engineering background with an eye towards data science and modeling to help the team digest and
optimize testing and results throughput. The goal is to optimize our understanding from physical testing so that we can continue to reduce needed physical testing.

Characterization is the foundation of the data that is required to make key decisions. This individual should be able to understand critical problems, develop the necessary experimental test plan, and communicate the results to peers, coworkers, and customers effectively. In addition, the ideal candidate's work experience should demonstrate an eye for detail towards method development and use statistical tools to create high-powered and robust experiments.

--- Interface with the application engineers to characterize 3D printed lattices
--- Characterize simplified lattice geometries and translate understanding to expected performance in full product systems
--- Improve on characterization processes to utilize existing and new data for future lattice tools.
--- Create and build upon lattice tools that engineers can use to quickly guide their selection of material and lattice geometry to target a specific performance
--- Build out our understanding of incumbent foams, particularly around rotational impact
--- Would be comfortable building out testing equipment to modify existing impact testing equipment or simulate full product testing

--- PhD in mechanical engineering, biomechanical engineering or engineering sciences preferred. Outstanding BS/MS level with industrial experience will also be considered.
--- Experience in data science or modeling is highly preferred.
--- Experience with static or dynamic testing of foams in applications such as footwear, helmets, and padding; demonstrates a deep understanding of linear and rotational impact. Knowledge of testing requirements for associated impact testing such as NOCSAE, Virginia Tech STAR, DOT, ECE, Snell, MIPs etc is preferred.
--- Experience with building and/or testing on impact/drop tower equipments and fixture design
--- Experience with analysis of large quantities of data and build out of tools to enable users to easily access results
--- Experience working in cross functional teams

You do not need to match every listed expectation to apply for this position. Here at Carbon, we know that diverse perspectives foster the innovation we need to be successful, and we are committed to building a team that encompasses a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and skills.
