Job title: Computational Physicist
Job ID: 23297BR
Location: Annandale, New Jersey
ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company has an immediate opening for computational physicists at all career stages in its Computational Physics Section at its Corporate Strategic Research Laboratories located in Annandale, New Jersey.
The Computational Physics Section is a multidisciplinary group of scientists conducting fundamental research in computational methods pertaining to the needs of providing energy to the world with particular focus in the areas of wave propagation, solid-fluid interactions, flow in porous media, granular physics, rock deformation and failure, multi-scale phenomena, and PDE-constrained optimization. The work environment is highly collaborative, and candidates are expected to work in partnership with experimental, theoretical and computational scientists across the organization. Successful candidates have the potential to become scientific leaders, developing new insights needed to capture key mechanisms, processes and parameters, and guiding research directions that address critical technical questions.
The applicant should have a Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering Sciences, or a closely related field. The candidate should have a demonstrated ability to solve physical problems by developing and/or adapting novel computational methods. Candidates with experience in inverse problems will be given additional consideration. Relevant areas of scientific expertise include statistical and nonlinear physics, classical theory of fields, electrodynamics, soft-matter physics, physical chemistry, fluid mechanics, and rock mechanics. Experience in large-scale computational modeling and parallel computing is highly desirable, and experience in multi-scale mathematical modeling desirable.
All applicants are expected to have good oral and written presentation skills, along with a strong record of publications and presentations, commensurate with their career stage. The ability and desire of the candidate to grow into new science areas are essential characteristics, as is the ability to work across disciplines and organizations.
