Autoneum is the globally leading producer of vehicle acoustics and thermal management systems. Our Customers include leading automobile producers in the key markets of Europe, North America, South America and Asia. Autoneum is represented at 48 locations in over 20 countries and employs some 9’400 people worldwide, of whom about 6 % in Switzerland. Formed in 2011, this Rieter Group spin-off company is listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
Your main task is to plan and execute tests as well as analyze data from experiments/simulations on thermal materials and products. You evaluate the thermal performance of our innovative solutions on the base of vehicle studies to be executed in our test-bench. You define new test rigs for measuring temperatures, heat-fluxes and airflows according to customer requirements. Ideally you’re able to set up analytical/numerical models to drive your testing campaign. Your experimental activities support numerical simulations, but are also the key for our product innovation projects. You will work very closely with other R&T teams and communicate, advertise and publish results to colleagues and customers worldwide.
The position requires a university degree in Physics or Aerospace/Mechanical Engineering. You must have a broad understanding of heat transfer, mass transfer, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and the structural and mechanical principles. Consequently you are able to apply these disciplines into tests/simulations on materials, products and vehicles. Your organized and stress-resistant personality assures you are able to work under pressure in order to meet deadlines, manage multiple projects simultaneously and respond quickly to requests. Knowledge of one or more of the following CAE programs is a strong plus: Radtherm, Star-CCM+, Matlab, NX. Fluency in English is a must, while basic knowledge of German would be nice but is not essential.
