G-TECH Services, Inc. Scientist / Research Eng Materials in Dearborn, Michigan
The person in this position will undertake materials research to develop multi-functional smart composite structures that support next generation interior vehicle design. Particular areas of interest are the design and development of multi-functional materials that may offer enhanced electrical and thermal conductivity with the option of including integrated sensing and electronics. Beyond proof of concept, special attention will be focused on practical implementation of automated material handling and processing methods that enable sensor integration into molded components in a manner that is conducive to high volume manufacturing. The individual will also need to develop new or modified laboratory test methods to validate robustness of material solutions to anticipated loads in service. Other responsibilities will include data analysis, report preparation and presentation of project information to customers, suppliers and management. The candidate will have the opportunity to work closely with client's material suppliers as well as Manufacturing, Product Development, and Design to improve the quality and performance of polymer material systems on the vehicles.
