IBM Thermal Engineer Intern in POUGHKEEPSIE, New York

We are seeking hardware engineers to design and develop cooling systems for high end computer servers from concept through market introduction, including engineering support of design issues during production. Specific responsibilities include defining cooling concepts, performing Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, performing early characterization and bench testing, performing full functional system level testing for thermal compliance, performing long term qualification testing for component and system level quality as well as failure analysis and quality management. In addition to working with people in our thermal lab, the student may also interact with other teams across server hardware development. This would include mechanical design, card and board design, processor and module level design, memory, IO, and storage design teams, various compliance teams including shock and vibration, EMC, acoustics. In addition, the person would interface with procurement, suppliers, supplier management and supplier quality teams as well as various executive management and program management contacts. The candidate must be familiar with cooling of electronic assemblies, computational fluid dynamics (CFD - ANSYS Icepak preferred), and thermal laboratory testing methods, including the use of thermocouples, data loggers, flow benches and related equipment. The ideal candidate will be familiar with free and forced air cooling, heat sink design, thermal interface materials, fan and blower design and well as water and two phase cooling components including pumps, cold plates, evaporators, condensers, manifolds, quick connects and related hardware. Demonstrated ability to work with a group of peers, as well as leadership, and communication skills are required.Positions may be also available for different seasons and duration (e.g. Spring/ Summer / Fall/ Summer only).

  • Minimum one to two years experience in the cooling of electronics or related fields (relevant academic research will be considered toward minimum experience).
