Development Engineer: Structural Mechanics

COMSOL India is seeking a mechanical engineer with an interest in continuum mechanics to join its development team in Bangalore. You will be part of our international structural mechanics group, in close cooperation with other offices.

We are looking for an individual with a strong background in finite element analysis, solid mechanics, and numerical methods. Experience in one or more of the following areas would provide a useful qualification:

  • Structural dynamics, in particular rotordynamics
  • Composite materials and structures
  • Fatigue and fracture mechanics
  • Heat treatment simulation
  • Use of COMSOL Multiphysics or other commercial finite element software

As development projects often include interaction with experts in other areas such as acoustics, fluid mechanics, and electromagnetism, a broad overview of various physics fields is an advantage.

Most of the development is done using our own tools, the Physics Builder and the Application Builder, but we also use Java and C/C++.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Implement new functionality in existing and new products
  • Maintain the code base
  • Write specifications for new functionality and GUI design
  • Assist the global support and sales departments with challenging modeling problems
  • Develop example models and apps
  • Write technical documentation


  • Ph.D. or M.S. with excellent merits. Continuum mechanics and finite element analysis are suitable specializations
  • Knowledge about rotordynamics, including supporting structures such as bearings, seals, couplings and housings
  • Strong analytical and mathematical skills
  • Ability to quickly grasp new scientific topics
  • Interest in numerical simulations
  • Interest and talent for developing well-structured code
  • Excellent English language skills, both verbal and written
