Research Engineer – Modeling and Control

Role and Responsibilities:

Reporting directly to the CTO, the Research Engineer – Modeling & Control will be responsible for modeling, experimental characterization, control and/or optimization of the Joule Printing™ process. A successful candidate would perform some or all of these tasks:

  • Develop dynamic models of the Joule Printing™ process and equipment using a combination of theoretical and empirical approaches.
  • Design simulations and experiments to verify the model and control systems
  • Develop/implement system identification methods to do parameter estimation
  • Analyze and interpret experimental data to suggest improvements to the print process and/or process model
  • Work with software, firmware and hardware engineering teams to build cutting-edge tools to plan, execute and analyze experiments
  • Design software-based control algorithms to improve the speed and quality of Joule Printing™


  • A PhD in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, physics, or a similar field.
  • A strong understanding of physics in multiple domains, including mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and electromagnetics.
  • Strong background in modeling, system identification, parameter estimation, and frequency response analysis.
  • Experience with MATLAB/Simulink and Python.
  • Background in classical and modern control theory, and know of adaptive control and control of non-linear systems desirable but not required.
  • Experience with COMSOL and/or Flow3D desirable but not required.
