Leading the future in luxury electric and mobility
At Lucid, we set out to introduce the most captivating, luxury electric vehicles that elevate the human experience and transcend the perceived limitations of space, performance, and intelligence. Vehicles that are intuitive, liberating, and designed for the future of mobility.
We plan to lead in this new era of luxury electric by returning to the fundamentals of great design – where every decision we make is in service of the individual and environment. Because when you are no longer bound by convention, you are free to define your own experience.
Come work alongside some of the most accomplished minds in the industry. Beyond providing competitive salaries, we're providing a community for innovators who want to make an immediate and significant impact. If you are driven to create a better, more sustainable future, then this is the right place for you.

We are currently seeking Battery Modeling Engineers, senior levels or above, to develop Multiphysics model can predict thermal and electrochemical performance. Senior level candidates with solid multi-dimensional Multiphysics battery model background, and technical specialist level candidates with broader modeling and experimental validation skill sets are both encouraged to apply.

This position requires a creative and analytical mindset with experience in modeling lithium-ion batteries. A successful candidate should be a quick learner and detailed oriented. This position will be expected to possess the ability to strive for perfection within a fast-paced environment.

The Role

  • Develop Multiphysics models of lithium-ion batteries under extreme operating conditions based on cell structure, electrochemistry knowledge, and test.
  • Develop multi-dimensional battery models to predict cell behavior including but not necessarily limited to heat flux, electrochemical and thermal response, and safety related performance
  • Collaborate with cross-functional team to optimize cell design by predicting thermal and electrochemical performances under extreme conditions with given design space.
  • Work with cross-functional teams to develop, test, and maintain your model
  • Review academic papers and provide insight summary for team members
  • Work with intellectual property team to patent your inventions


  • MS with over 5 years of industrial experience or PhD degree in EE, ME, CS, Math, Physics, Chemistry, Materials
  • Fundamental knowledge of commercial Li-ion cell structure and electrochemical/thermal behavior
  • Experienced in creating multi-dimensional structure and run CFD models for electrochemical/thermal systems.
  • Familiar with battery testing equipment and test protocol
  • Excellent communication skills and team-oriented attitude
  • Comfortable with initiating and taking ownership of projects


  • Experienced in CFD model package (e.g. Ansys Fluent) other than COMSOL for battery simulation
  • Experience in modeling of mechanical structure of the cylindrical or prismatic battery cell.
  • Experienced in thermal test using the battery cell/module/pack
  • Experienced in thermal runaway and propagation simulation
  • Fluency in other programming languages such as python, C, or MATLAB.


  • PhD, or Masters with 3+ years of relevant work experience, or
  • Bachelors with 5+ years of relevant work experience
