Hybrid Modeling Researcher

PARC is looking for an exceptional candidate who can contribute to the science of physics based modeling and hybrid models. Hybrid models combine traditional engineering modeling methods (e.g., ODEs, DAEs, PDEs), machine learning (e.g., neural networks), and symbolic AI. They are essential for modeling IOT systems for diagnostic and prognostic applications as well as design of cyberphysical components and systems. Future projects include continuing work with various government agencies (e.g., DARPA, DOE, NIST) and Xerox funded AI technology in Digital Design and Manufacturing, IoT, and AI applications.


  • Research, design, develop, and implement innovative approaches, methods, and algorithms

  • Work with internal and external collaborators to formulate problems and define requirements

  • Develop research plans and write proposals

  • Contribute to projects within PARC utilizing hybrid models for design, diagnosis and control applications


  • Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or related discipline

  • Demonstrated expertise in physics-based modeling and simulation, machine learning, and optimization (both traditional and AI-inspired), e.g. strong publication record

  • Demonstrated implementation skills, including expertise in Python and Matlab.

  • Experience with machine learning platforms (e.g., TensorFlow, Pytorch)

  • Research mindset and ability to contribute to writing proposals

  • Self-starting: Can work independently within a multi-disciplinary team

  • Experience in reading scientific papers and replicating methods

  • Familiarity with modern software tools and practices

  • Knowledge of Modelica is a plus
