Job Overview


The Propulsion System Calibration Engineer— Model Basedof a new FCA vehicle application will develop calibrations with both electrified and conventional technologies using model based methods.

The Propulsion System Calibration Engineer— Model Basedwill form calibrations from existing plant models starting at the control system co- development process. He/she will test the propulsion system functional objectives on a virtual platform, while generating expanded test case coverage and correlation to physical resources.

The Propulsion System Calibration Engineer— Model Basedwill plan and coordinate day to day simulation resources including component and system HILs, which will include interaction with technicians and supporting engineers. The scope of responsibility spans the development and application of calibration and control system for hybrid, electric, and conventional propulsion modes.

The role will work cross functionally to develop and execute calibration strategies across the functional areas of core engine, drivability, emissions, vehicle integration, virtual engineering, OBD, torque security, e motor and battery. He/she will make data based decisions through rigorous development /test plans. The Propulsion System Calibration Engineer— Model Basedwill present and justify changes to a lead calibrator, chief engineer, and senior management as appropriate.

This individual will have also demonstrated the ability to work well with others. They must be a team player, supporting and promoting team accomplishments versus personal achievement.
