Exhaust Aftertreatment System Simulation Engineer

The System Design and Simulation team is part of the EATS System Department within Powertrain Engineering, Volvo Group Trucks Technology. The team is responsible for EATS system engineering, EATS project management as well as simulations of thermo and fluid dynamic processes within the exhaust aftertreatment systems.
We are now looking for an exhaust aftertreatment simulation engineer to further strengthen our virtual development capability.

Job Description

As exhaust aftertreatment system simulation engineer in the EATS System Design and Simulation team you will be responsible for modelling and simulation of the kinematic and thermodynamic behaviour of exhaust aftertreatment components and systems. Models that you develop will be implemented in the engine and exhaust aftertreatment control software as an important contributor to achieving the challenging targets for exhaust emission legislation fulfilment.
Within Powertrain Engineering we are working according a system engineering process, which means a structured way to break down the customer requirements to the component level. Part of this assignment is to support the team within in the requirement definition process.
In this challenging role you will be working in a creative environment with advanced simulation tools and demanding thermodynamic problems. The simulation activities are organized in close coordination with testing and design, meaning that involvement in test activities for verification of simulation model results will be a natural part of the work. We also have frequent cooperation and interaction with other simulation teams within the Volvo Group as well as contacts with external partners such as suppliers and universities.
  • Perform simulations of exhaust aftertreatment components and system kinetics and behaviour
  • Develop models, methods and tools for exhaust aftertreatment system simulations
  • Together with your colleagues drive the area of exhaust aftertreatment system analysis within Powertrain Engineering
  • Present and document analysis results and conclusions, and give recommendations to the teams within the department
  • Support your colleagues in the system engineering process deliveries
  • PhD or MSc in chemical engineering, engineering physics or other relevant field
  • Knowledge of exhaust aftertreatment and muffler systems
  • Knowledge of internal combustion engines is considered an asset
  • Experience from the automotive industry is considered a merit
  • Experience from using simulation tools for exhaust aftertreatment system simulations
  • Programming skills, primarily Matlab
  • Analytical mindset
  • Documentation and reporting skills
  • Ability to work independently as well as in teams
  • Fluent in English
At Powertrain Engineering we are actively working to establish teams that will take maximum advantage of the strength inherent in differences in knowledge, experience, age, gender and nationality, etc. We find that well balanced working groups increases group dynamics, creativity and new approaches to solutions.
