Graduate Student Internship Opportunities in Advanced Process Control and

   ExxonMobil Chemical Company is searching for engineering graduate
   students pursuing a Ph.D. in the area of advanced process control and
   optimization for an internship experience.  The target start date is
   Summer 2012.  The work location is the Baytown Engineering Complex near
   Houston, TX.

   Engineers in the Process Control Applications section of Core
   Engineering contribute to the design, implementation, and sustainment of
   the advanced automation systems that enable processes to run safely,
   cleanly, and more profitably at ExxonMobil Chemical Company plants

   Our engineers design innovative solutions to complex control and
   optimization problems, and implement these solutions in practice.
   Additionally, we develop new tools to help control room operators and
   engineers better operate the manufacturing facilities.  Our current
   interests are in scalable model-based estimation, control, and
   optimization technologies for increasingly autonomous manufacturing

   During this research focused internship, the student will gain exposure
   to the real-life challenges involved with designing innovative advanced
   control solutions for large, complex chemical processes. The business
   impact of technology solutions will be emphasized. Preference will be
   given to candidates whose graduate research is aligned with Core
   Engineering's R&D programs and are relatively early in their research

   In addition to a strong technical background in advanced process control
   and optimization and demonstrated high levels of academic achievement,
   successful candidates will demonstrate solid research capabilities,
   innovative thinking, strong initiative, and good communication skills.

   This search is open until 17 Feb 2012.  Interested candidates should
   apply by sending a resume to [log in to unmask]
