Data Science & Computational Mechanics Intern - Fall 2024

Relativity Space

🇺🇸 United States: Long Beach, CA Data🍁 Fall 3 Months🏢 Office

Company Overview:  

At Relativity Space, we have two audacious goals: to build the next great commercial launch company with Terran R and to become America's leading force in additive manufacturing innovation. Both contribute to our long-term vision of creating humanity’s industrial base on Mars, paving the way for interplanetary life to expand the possibilities of the human experience. This journey begins right here on Earth – where we design, build, and fly rockets to deliver customer payloads to orbit. Terran R, our medium-to-heavy lift reusable rocket, fulfills the growing demand for launch capacity, thanks to our iterative approach that accelerates design, testing, and development while minimizing costs. While our groundbreaking research and development in 3D printing pushes the boundaries of large-scale additive manufacturing.

Your journey with us is more than just a job – it’s an opportunity to shape the future of aerospace technology, additive manufacturing, and the human experience alongside a community of passionate, creative individuals. Join us on this extraordinary journey, as we work together to transform our vision into reality.

About the Team:  

Relativity is looking for an Intern to join our Data Science Engineering & Additive Simulation Teams within our multifaceted Additive Development Group. The Data Science & Additive Simulation team at Relativity is responsible for developing simulation tools for predicting residual stresses, distortions and damage tolerance of additive manufactured components, developing software products that automate advising and developing tools that allow other teams to make decisions using data driven, stochastic, and dare we say, intelligent, methods. We value team members from diverse backgrounds who can contribute to the core responsibility of developing tools and models capable of advancing Relativity’s additive manufacturing technology.

What You'll Do:

Our mission is to induce a paradigm shift in how rockets are built and flown. The Additive Development group is looking for an intern to join us in solving the most complex problems in Additive Manufacturing. You will be expected to leverage your creativity and problem-solving skills to architect, develop, and deploy new tools, models, and processes focused on a wide array of physical, technical problems and phenomena related to manufacturing an orbital launch vehicle. Your ability to exercise technical judgment in solving engineering challenges will be necessary to succeed in this internship!

About You:

  • Obtaining BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Data Science, or related field
  • Hands-on experience with machine-learning frameworks and techniques with large datasets
  • Familiarity in processes and infrastructure for developing, operating, and monitoring machine learning models
  • Experience working in multi-disciplinary environments
  • Experience working with high frequency time series data
  • Experience with basic structural and thermal finite element analysis
  • Experience in testing including methods using Digital Image Correlations and Universal Testing Machines
  • Experience with calibration, verification and validation of models through physical testing

We believe varied perspectives & backgrounds strengthen our team. Prior experience in aerospace is not required.

Past intern projects (just a few examples!)

  • Created finite element models/analytical models of additive manufactured components
  • Implemented new functionalities across models of several length scales
  • Designed and performed testing to support modeling efforts
  • Implemented computer vision on the robots to implemented live depth data
  • Worked on adding automated sanding/grinding capabilities to our print cells
  • Worked on test stand infrastructure to help run tests more often and more efficiently
  • Oversaw designing the PCB for the High Voltage Battery Management System (HVBMS)
  • Helped set up an anomaly detection framework for stargate printers

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
