Computational Material Science Intern
- Legal Entity: Robert Bosch LLC
The Bosch Research and Technology Center North America with offices in Sunnyvale, California, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Cambridge, Massachusetts is part of the global Bosch Group (www.bosch.com), a company with over 70 billion euro revenue, 400,000 people worldwide, a very diverse product portfolio, and a history of over 125 years. The Research and Technology Center North America (RTC-NA) is committed to providing technologies and system solutions for various Bosch business fields primarily in the areas of Human Machine Interaction (HMI), Robotics, Energy Technologies, Internet Technologies, Circuit Design, Semiconductors and Wireless, and MEMS Advanced Design.
Bosch Research is looking for an intern in atomistic computational materials science to join the materials design team. Our goal is to enable improved Bosch products through deep understanding of thermodynamic, kinetic, and transport phenomena on an atomic level using both quantum and classical simulations. Strong focus is placed on development and application of computational and machine-learning methods for understanding and automated discovery of next-generation materials, primarily for electrochemistry and energy conversion.
In this position, the intern will focus on utilizing machine learning algorithms and large data resources of organic materials to explore property predictions and process optimization in the larger context of chemoinformatics. Innovative approaches will be explored to extract molecular fingerprints and create the mapping between the material and latent spaces. This work is relevant for the development of the diverse organic materials portfolio of Bosch.
As part of Bosch Corporate Research, we are dedicated to long-term fundamental investigations of transformative energy technologies. Located in Cambridge, close to MIT and Harvard, our materials computation team supports global experimental efforts with fundamental understanding, emphasizing innovation and high technological impact. Using both internal funding and government grants, we collaborate closely with a network of leading computational and experimental teams which includes top universities, national labs and industrial partners. We strongly encourage high-impact publications and patent applications.
- Ph.D. candidate at a top university in chemical engineering, physics, chemistry, materials science, or a related field.
- Solid foundations in materials science, solid-state physics, and/or chemistry
- Experience with method development and familiarity with chemoinformatic and ML tools .
- Attention to detail, flexibility, creativity, and excellent communication and teamwork skills
- Experience in atomistic simulations, preferably density-functional theory, molecular dynamics, and/or quantum chemistry
- Significant research and/or coding experience, preferably with fluency in Python and FORTRAN/C++
- Strong background in physics and coding, and passion on working and understanding physics-based devices
The U.S. base salary range for this intern position is $29.00-$56.50 hourly. Within the range, individual pay is determined based on several factors, including, but not limited to, type of degree, work experience and job knowledge, complexity of the role, type of position, job location, etc. Your Hiring Manager can share more details about the specific salary range for this position during the interview process.
By choice, we are committed to a diverse workforce - EOE/Protected Veteran/Disabled.
