Specific duties may include: Research fundamental engineering test cases. Complete benchmarking and validation testing by creating flow models, reading blueprints, and creating CAD geometries. Write user-defined computer programs in C and Fortran to incorporate custom calculations. Write customized scripts for pre-processing and post-processing purposes. Collaborate with internal teams to validate models and provide technical descriptions of new application features in CONVERGE. Provide CONVERGE software training to and collaborate with industry clients, universities, and research groups from national laboratories. Provide technical support and create sample tutorial cases for users to study problems involving combustion chemistry, spray modeling, turbulence, multi-phase flow modeling, conjugate heat transfer, fluid-structure interaction and complex geometries. Prepare articles for publication in professional journals and presentation at conferences. The position requires frequent travel within the greater Detroit metro area to support clients (no overnight stay required) and overnight travel to attend professional conferences 0-3 times per year.
Must have a Ph.D. in mechanical, chemical, aerospace, or nuclear engineering and at least 72 months of part-time experience or 36 months of full-time experience as a research assistant or similar role in CFD. Applicants must have advanced knowledge and significant experience in performing combustion CFD analysis on CFD-specific software and programming in FORTRAN, C, MATLAB or similar languages. Must also have demonstrated technical communication skills in English, such as publications in scientific journals and presentations at technical conferences. Experience acquired during or after master’s- or Ph.D.-level academic studies is acceptable. Include all relevant experience in resume.
