Process Control Applications Graduate Intern

   ExxonMobil Research and Engineering (EMRE) is searching for a chemical
   engineering graduate student pursuing a Ph.D. in the area of advanced
   process control and optimization for an internship experience.  The
   target start date is summer 2010.  The work location is EMRE’s Central
   Engineering Office in Fairfax, VA.

   Engineers in EMRE’s Advanced Control section contribute to the design,
   implementation, and sustainment of the advanced automation systems at
   ExxonMobil refineries and chemical plants that enable processes to run
   safely, cleanly, and more profitably.  Our engineers design innovative
   solutions to complex control problems, develop new tools to help control
   room operators and engineers better operate the manufacturing
   facilities, and implement these solutions in practice.  Our current
   interests are in scalable model-based estimation, control, and
   optimization technologies for increasingly autonomous manufacturing
   systems.  To stay current with new technologies, engineers in the
   Advanced Control section keep in contact with academic researchers to
   learn about their latest research developments.

   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 refining and chemical processes.
   The business impact of technology solutions will be emphasized.
   Preference will be given to candidates whose graduate research is
   aligned with EMRE’s R&D program.

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

   This search is open until 18 Dec 2009.
