Organization Overview:

The Process Engineering Center (PEC) is a group of skilled engineering practitioners who possess deep technical expertise and have access to appropriate lab facilities. The PEC partners globally with manufacturing site process and plant engineers, corporate function engineers, and development engineers/scientists to provide rigorous technical solutions.

Responsibilities:

This role will provide diverse modeling expertise and techniques in a variety of areas including physical properties, unit operations, scale-up, numerical/multiphysics simulation, and resource/operational logistics optimization.

  • Develop and deploy simulation and optimization models to drive decisions that help develop new and/or improve existing manufacturing and logistics processes.

  • Deliver sound interpretation of modeling results by maintaining in-depth knowledge of the underlying physics, first principles concepts, and numerical methods from which models are formulated and solved.

  • Compliment model-based solutions with laboratory investigation and empirical validation when appropriate.

  • Prepare internal technical reports to document work and to contribute to the product or process body of knowledge, and when appropriate, publish and/or present work externally.

  • Maintain and grow the functional value of modeling within Lilly by (i) developing appropriate internal collaborations (ii) sharing key learnings broadly at appropriate internal forums to allow colleagues the ability to identify projects that may benefit from model-based analysis.

  • Foster the use of modeling tools by colleagues outside PEC by providing instruction, consultation, and continuously advocating the use of first-principles techniques and model-based methods.

  • Identify and implement modeling advances that bring value to Lilly by maintaining awareness of new developments in the external modeling landscape.

  • Develop collaborations with appropriate external partners to help manage workload and to gain additional expertise.

Basic Requirements:

  • Minimum MS degree in chemical or mechanical engineering (or related field).

  • Experience developing models in one or more of the following: steady-state simulation, dynamic simulation, discrete event simulation, nonlinear programming, or mixed-integer linear programming.

  • Minimum of (2) years of related work experience (graduate research included)

Additional Skills/Preferences:

  • Strong technical writing and presentation skills.

  • Capability to solve complex issues with minimal supervision

  • Experience with chemical process modeling and simulation.

  • Experience developing simulation and optimization models leveraging commercial software tools like ANSYS-Fluent®, M-Star®, COMSOL®, aspenONE®, AFT Fathom®, ExtendSim®, Frontline Solver®

  • Experience with statistical analysis and data/model fitting leveraging commercial software tools like JMP® or similar.

  • Experience in the pharmaceutical industry.

Additional Information:

  • Some domestic and OUS travel may be required.

  • Executing projects in a manufacturing environment may require use of designated PPE.

If you are currently in a technical path role, but outside of the posting band, you may apply. You will be hired at your current level. For example: Current P4 (tech ladder), Posting R1-2 tech ladder, hire will occur at P4 .
