Job Description:

ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Company has an immediate opening at the Corporate Strategic Research Laboratories located in Annandale, NJ. The selected research scientist will join our research team focusing on the processes controlling the formation and evolution of porous solids, and the resulting impact on their structural and transport properties, such as porosity, permeability, fracture toughness, as well as acoustic and electromagnetic wave transmission. Preferably, the successful candidate will have skills and experience developing both theory and experiments that complement numerical approaches used for investigating those physical processes. An initial desired focus is on the initiation and growth of fractures with the goal of linking state-of-the-art computational models with theoretical models and experimental observations to develop tools to predict and control fracture evolution in a variety of materials.

The applicant should have a PhD in Physics, Engineering, Geosciences or a related field. A familiarity with the physics of complex materials would be an advantage. Preferably, candidates should have experience in design and construction of experiments, sample characterization and data analysis. An interest in rock/soil mechanics, granular media, composite materials, or experimental geophysics is desirable. We expect excellent oral and written presentation skills along with a strong record of publications and presentations. The ability of the candidate to grow into new science areas will be a critical characteristic.

ExxonMobil’s Corporate Strategic Research (CSR) laboratory is a powerhouse in energy research focusing on fundamental science that can lead to technologies having a direct impact on solving our biggest energy challenges. Our facilities are centrally located in scenic Annandale, New Jersey, approximately one hour from both New York City and Philadelphia.
