The Building Envelope Materials Research (BEMR) Group in the Building Technologies Research and Integration Center (BTRIC) in the Building and Transportation Science Division (BTSD) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is seeking applicants for a Senior Research and Development Staff position. The work in this group supports the U.S. DOE Building Technology Office and other customers by developing state-of-the-art and cost-effective building envelope technologies that make new and existing buildings energy efficient, durable, comfortable, grid-interactive, sustainable, and have low embodied energy.
You will be responsible for developing and conducting research in advanced construction. For example:
M.S. or PhD in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, industrial engineering, construction engineering, or related discipline is required. Required work experience is a minimum of 12 years for a candidate with an M.S. degree and a minimum of six years for a candidate with a PhD degree. Knowledge of building construction, energy efficiency in buildings, prefabrication of building components, manufacturing science and technology, flexible industrial automation, human machine interaction, and/or optimization of factory production lines is desired. Background in the development and implementation of digital twins and application of machine learning is a plus.
The candidate should have
