Job Description

Company Description:

Corning is one of the world’s leading innovators in materials science. For more than 160 years, Corning has applied its unparalleled expertise in specialty glass, ceramics, and optical physics to develop products that have created new industries and transformed people’s lives.

At Corning, our growth is fueled by a commitment to innovation. We succeed through sustained investment in research & development, a unique combination of material and process innovation, and close collaboration with customers to solve tough technology challenges. We are a four-time National Medal of Technology winner thanks to our technology leadership and R&D environment, which attract and enable the best scientific minds in the world. This pipeline of talent has brought life-changing innovation to your fingertips for more than 160 years.


Scope of Position (i.e. projects involved with and role within group): Corning’s Glass Technologies segment manufactures glass substrates for active matrix liquid crystal displays (LCDs), organic light emitting diode displays (OLED) and strengthened cover glasses (Gorilla ™ Glass). The Melting Technology Development group is looking for an innovative research and development engineer to join our team. The ideal candidate will bring a deep understanding of first principles electrical heating including impact and considerations for electrical frequency, current canceling and three phase heating and their application for glass melting, fining and delivery. The successful candidate will contribute to research and development of novel glass heating technologies and component design including the developing electrical models, design and prototyping power systems for single and three phase electrical boost glass melting systems and application of joule heating for the glass fining and conditioning. This candidate will use fundamental understanding of electrical systems for the mechanistic understanding of glass melting and glass delivery and its interaction with new glass compositions. The melting development electrical engineer will be responsible for the delivery of melting process fundamental understanding, new process technologies and capabilities supporting Corning Glass Technology (CGT).


Key deliverables are:

  • Development of enabling technologies which result in cost effective manufacturing and precious metal utilization.

  • Fundamental understanding of the direct heated resistive systems and the impact of electrical power distribution used for fining and conditioning glass.

  • Fundamental understanding and optimization of power distribution of electrical boost glass melting tanks. In this position, you will also have special access to confidential and other highly sensitive information. In accepting this position, you will be required to sign a non-compete agreement that extends for two (2) years after termination of your employment.


Day to Day Responsibilities:

  • Develop models and lead critical experiments to address the interaction of joule heating on process and equipment life, material limitations and power efficiency for glass delivery processes and its interaction with new glass compositions.

  • Support the design and implementation of component melting technologies.

  • Responsible for technology transfer to engineering and manufacturing.

  • Work in a multi-functional team environment including research, development, engineering, and manufacturing.

  • Present results and recommendations stake holders in research, development and engineering and other companies as required.

Job Requirements

Travel Requirements (please note if international): Domestic and international travel maybe required: International travel primarily Japan, Korea, Taiwan Hours of work/work schedule/flex-time: 40 - 50 hours per week including teleconferences outside normal working hours


Education and Experience (minimum required for consideration): PhD in Electrical Engineering or MS in Electrical Engineering with 5+ years of equivalent industrial experience.


Required Skills (These are skills that candidates MUST possess):

  • First principles understanding joule heating including impact and considerations for electrical frequency, current canceling and three phase heating.

  • Development of electrical models to simulate and prototype single and three phase electrical boost glass melting.

  • Ability to work well in project team environments and with peer technical review.

  • Ability to effectively communicate technical results verbally and through written documentation.


Desired Skills (These are skills that would be nice for candidates to possess):

  • Experience with project leadership.

  • Ability to effectively influence technical decisions.


Soft Skills (Communication/Team/Leadership):

  • Enthusiastic approach to technical leadership

  • Skilled at delivering results in a cross-functional matrix team environment

  • Uses an analytical thought process

  • Engages easily with other technical experts

  • Technically curious
