R&D Simulation Engineer Mechanical/Structural

    • Category: Engineering
    • Location: Vaesteras, SE

    NKT, a world-leading supplier of cables for the energy sector, is investing to reach further success in innovation and R&D. From the site in Västerås, technical experts and scientists have worked with industries worldwide in cross-disciplinary R&D projects and technical investigations, for more than one hundred years. 

    Technology Consulting is a dynamic workplace with an atmosphere characterized by development and learning. Facilities include modern laboratories and a state-of-the-art private cloud for high performance computing. You will be working with colleagues who are experts in the fields of mechanics, electrical testing, chemistry and materials. Through the range of different R&D projects and consulting assignments, there will be great opportunities to build a global network of technical partners and business units.  

    Key role in the innovation and development of world class high and medium voltage products
    As the demand for advanced mechanical investigations is growing, we are now looking for an R&D simulation engineer to strengthen the Applied Mechanics Department. The core competence in our department spans different fields in applied mechanics, mechanical testing, advanced modelling and simulations, including computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis and Multiphysics simulations.  

    The department  portfolio covers a wide range of high and medium voltage cutting edge products with emphasis on high-voltage cables, supporting the global community in the quest for a green energy transformation.      

    As an R&D simulation engineer you will have the opportunity to work in a multidisciplinary environment with a keen interest in innovation. You will provide technical support to NKT and to other industries worldwide in overcoming complex mechanical challenges interlinked with all sorts of physics across different products and in all stages of the product development cycle. 

    Your main tasks will be to: 
    •    Perform finite element analysis for different cutting edge product applications to solve complex problems that arise in various areas of applied mechanics for medium and high voltage application
    •    Understand our internal and external customer needs as well as their business drivers and implement creative solutions that requires highly advanced computational models and complex simulation analyses
    •    Lead and conduct various type of consulting and R&D projects end-to-end, from initial client discussion to execution and reporting. You will contribute with your modelling and simulation expertise to the future development of world class high and medium voltage products.

    Analytical, goal-oriented with excellent communication skills
    To succeed in this role you have excellent verbal and written communication skills in English, including the ability to effectively communicate with internal and external customers with different background. It is also advantageous if you have experience from building as well as maintaining close customer relations. You enjoy working independently as much as in multi-disciplinary team.

    Apart from this you do also have: 
    •    Technical Ph.D. or a M.Sc. with two years of industrial experience in mechanical simulation or structural dynamics modeling 
    •    Knowledge of  finite element method and numerical modeling. 
    •    Excellent skills and extensive experiences with commercial software, i.e. ABAQUS
    •    Knowledge and experience on ANSYS, COMSOL and mechanics of high-voltage cables are merit.
