Description of offer:

Automotive Business Area, within the Industry and Transport Division in TECNALIA, is looking for a Senior researcher specialized in advanced manufacturing processes through deformation with knowledge in new materials required by the automotive sector. It is necessary to have experience in the automotive sector and knowledge of its evolution and strategy.

This job vacancy belongs to the Automotive business Area, which mission is to generate value through the technology for a sustainable, safe and intelligent transport. In Tecnalia we work on solutions for a more sustainable mobility, researching in new ideas for the vehicles of the future. In this line of research, the solutions based on new materials (aluminium, high strength steels, composites) and their hybridization (multimaterial products) along with those rapid and automated manufacturing processes become important versus the conventional solutions based on products and processes especially related to steel, being necessary a new profile in future engineers, who should have multi-material knowledge in vehicles structures. We are looking for a professional with 4-5 years experience into the manufacturing components technologies field (through deformation and/or binding), interested in applied research activities within the automotive field.

 The selected candidate will be expected to:

  • Get in touch with research groups who work at international level (Universities, Other technological Centers…)

  • Lead research projects, at national and European level (ideas generation, networking, consortiums agreements, proposals, coordination, execution….

  • Develop technical value proposal in manufacturing and help  the team to increase the research activity

  • Supervise/colead Phd candidates in order to develop the subjects

 Knowledge in product design and in the specified sector, as well as customer relationship management experience (specially OEMS and Tier 1) will be an asset.

We are looking for a professional with initiative, creativity related to processes and products innovation and eager to tackle new challenges and scientific developments in the automotive sector. The selected candidate should be able to pull the value proposal of manufacturing and lead a multidisciplinary team aimed to the effective achievement of objectives based on the needs of the companies in the sector.

The candidate should have: 

  • Broad knowledge of components manufacturing strategy for the automotive sector, especially through forming or deformation.

  • Experience in the development of innovative forming processes, both cold and hot (light alloys stamping, AHSS y UHSS steels, and composites thermos forming.

  • Binding technologies for multimaterial structures knowledge will be taken into account (adhesive, mechanics, laser and hybrid bindings).

  • Broad  knowledge of means and  equipment needed for the development of new manufacturing processes through forming (press, materials, dies…).

  • Skills on simulation of metallic components manufacturing processes for the automotive sector will be an advantage (PAM STAMP, AUTOFORM, LS Dyna, ABAQUS).

  • Experience in the development of R&D proposals with partners both at national and European level as well as participation in forums and networks of the sector (EARPA, EUCAR…).

  • Knowledge and contacts on manufacturing for automotive sector at an international level for the automotive sector, both in companies and/or research excellence centers will be an advantage.

Requirements:

  • Qualifications: BsC in Industrial Engineer or similar, preferably specialized in  materials or manufacturing processes and with experience in R&D. Phd or manufacturing MsC will be an asset.
  • Minimum experience: More than 5 years in R&D projects of the mentioned fields, specially in the development of innovative forming processes both in cold and hot (light alloys stamping, AHSS y UHSS steels, and composites thermos forming.

  • Languages: Fluent Spanish and English. German and French will be an advantage.

  • Others: It is essential availability to travel.

  • Advantages:

    • Binding technologies knowledge for multimaterial structures (adhesives, mechanic, laser and hybrid binds).

    • Knowledge and contacts on manufacturing for automotive sector at an international level for the automotive sector.

    • Experience in the development of R&D proposals with partners both at national and European level as well as participation in forums and networks of the sector (EARPA, EUCAR…).
