Monolith, located in Lincoln, NE, is excited to announce its search for a Reactor Kinetics Intern.
At Monolith we apply scientific principles, engineering practices and a lot of hard work to solve real problems that have a global impact. We use sophisticated analysis methods, advanced manufacturing techniques, and often even our hands to build first of its kind technologies. We do not compromise on safety, quality or performance. If you want to solve tough problems, build real things, and have a big impact then you should join us.
The Reactor Kinetics Intern will focus on accurately capturing decomposition and particle formation kinetics in one or more simplified global schemes applicable across a wide range of temperatures, pressures, gas compositions, and usable across our suite of in-house tools and codes. These ‘reduced’ models will used to increase understanding and mitigating fouling, and optimizing future Monolith reactors in size, energy requirements, feedstock throughput. Data across many reactor size scales (MPT to OC1) will be utilized for validation.
Develop and supply Monolith with general kinetic schemes that are of value to CoreTech and be able to iterate and improve on the scheme given feedback
Create and use computational scripting tools to perform this work and have experience with both prior to beginning
Learn the value and use of theoretical and modeling tools industry and the unique distinction between academia and industry where modeling methods are simplified and/or tuned to meet the needs and pace in an industry-environment
Perform other duties as needed
Organized: Ability to intelligently categorize information in a method that is intuitive to others
Reliable: Consistent delivery on timelines
Cogent: Efficiently explain research to the other members of the team
Coachable: Willing to accept feedback and learn from experience
Resilient: Perform well under pressure with a low ego that thrives on the team's success
Inquisitive: Willingness and desire to learn
Creative: Problem solver who challenges previous assumptions and methods to continuously improve and solve challenges; relentlessly pursues a better solution
Adaptable: Demonstrated ability to adapt and change in a dynamic and evolving environment with grit, passion and perseverance
