Code Developer- Computational Mechanics
Livermore, CA
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
Science and Technology on a Mission!

For more than 60 years, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has applied science and technology to make the world a safer place.

We have multiple openings for Code Developers. You will create or adapt state-of-the-art computational mechanics algorithms, ensure the fidelity and performance of their implementation, and support their usage by multiple teams on demanding classes of problems. These positions are in the Defense Technologies Engineering Division (DTED), within the Engineering Directorate. DTED provides support to Weapons and Complex Integration (WCI) Programs.

Essential Duties
- Create or identify state-of-the-art computational mechanics algorithms that extend modeling capabilities, implement as software suitable for high-performance computers, and document their verification.
- Establish expertise in using one or more finite element based simulation tools such as ParaDyn or Diablo.
- Evaluate algorithms for current and future problem classes, developing a body of experience with which to guide users and establish strategies for future improvements.
- Proactively interact with users to assess software performance and provide solutions for moderately complex issues of modeling or software errors.
- Adapt software development and QA practices and contribute to their continuous improvement.
- Document efforts in technical reports, publish papers in peer-reviewed journals, and present results at scientific meetings and conferences.
- Contribute to technical practices and mechanical and structural systems with internal and external collaborators.
-Perform other duties as assigned.

- Master’s (MA/MS) degree in Mechanical Engineering, or the equivalent combination of education and related experience.
- Comprehensive knowledge of computational mechanics, in particular the theory and application of finite element methods for nonlinear solid and structural mechanics.
- Demonstrated proficiency in Fortran or C/C++ programming.
- Comprehensive knowledge in at least one of the following topical areas: advanced spatial discretization for large deformation response, advanced representations of nonlinear response for metals or other material classes, coupled multi-physics simulation, including fluid-structural interaction.
- Demonstrated ability to conduct independent research.
- Proficient verbal and written communication skills necessary to effectively collaborate in a team environment and present and explain technical information.
- Ability to travel.

Desired Qualifications
- Ph.D. in engineering with a computational mechanics focus.
- Experience with software implementations on parallel systems.
- Knowledge of commercial tools for nonlinear solid and structural mechanics.
