The objective of these projects is typically to demonstrate value of the mechanistic modelling approaches in gPROMS FormulatedProducts and help clients develop digital twins of their processes for offline and online deployment. 

Area of responsibility

• Execution of consulting projects

         o Applying existing gPROMS FormulatedProducts model libraries to industrial problems presented by our clients

         o Developing and applying first-principles mathematical models where an off-the-shelf solution is not present

         o Preparing model formulation documentation and project reports

         o Ensure projects are delivered to the highest quality and within budgeted cost and time

• Active participation in client/team meetings and working activities

• Contributing to group activities and knowledgebase, including delivery of technical seminars

• Preparing training and demonstration materials

Graduates will be enrolled on SPSE’s graduate scheme and given the opportunity to undertake rotations within non-hiring basis functions. This includes working within the product development and applications engineering teams. The scheme helps graduates to develop a broad range of competencies and gain exposure to the wider business, whilst providing diverse career and professional development opportunities.

Your qualifications

• A First or 2:1 Master’s degree in Chemical, Biochemical, Pharmaceutical or Mechanical Engineering or a related discipline.

• Self-motivated individual capable of building strong technical relationships with major customers, and who has strong oral and written communication skills along with excellent process, industry and technical knowledge.

• Experience of carrying out first-principles modelling.

• Experience with gPROMS®, SPEEDUP®, ACM®, Dymola® or another equation-oriented modelling tool is advantageous but not essential.

• Programming (FORTRAN, Python, C, C++) and CFD/DEM experience is helpful, but not necessary.

• Ability to take on challenges and work independently as well as in a team.
