Are you passionate about research? So are we! Come and join us

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment, and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.



You ‘d like to contribute as an Engineer? Join our Materials Research Department

At the Structural Composites (SC) research Unit of the Materials Research Department (MRT), we set out to develop and introduce to the market cutting-edge research and innovations in the field of composite materials, structures, and manufacturing processes. Such innovation takes advantage from the integrated efforts of several technologies proposed by the SC unit of the MRT, the most notably multiscale modelling and simulation, microstructure analysis and interface engineering. We plan to lead in the structural composite materials field by returning to the fundamentals of great design – where every decision we make is in service of the individual and environment.

Come work alongside some of the most accomplished minds in the composite materials fields. Beyond providing competitive salaries, we’re providing a community for innovators who want to make an immediate and significant impact in the field. If you are driven to create a better, more sustainable future, then this is the right place for you.

We are currently seeking a Computational mechanics engineer or scientist. This position requires an experienced professional with fair understanding of the composite materials modelling and simulation. You will be expected to demonstrate excellence in your respective fields, to possess the ability to learn quickly and to strive for perfection within a fast-paced environment. This role is open to all levels of experience. 


How will you contribute?

You will be mainly in charge of:

  • Development of original numerical models and implementation in non- commercial computing codes,
  • Lead the use, development, and application of appropriate computational methods to use - focus is structural mechanics modeling & simulation.
  • Be responsible for, but not limited to, generating multiple CAE concepts and workflows.
  • Be responsible on the integration of the developed simulation workflows
  • Perform Multi-physical CAE analyses at the sub-system and component level
  • Perform correlation studies between test data and CAE data and make assessments on how to improve modeling and analyses techniques.
  • Publish work in scientific journals and present it at technical symposia.
