The Electronic Warfare Division currently has an immediate opening for a Senior Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Engineer.
JOB DESCRIPTION: Develop and apply computational fluid mechanics modeling for high speed (hypersonic) weapon systems. Develop and apply CFD modeling and simulation tools to determine aerodynamic coefficients, aerothermal environments, and flowfield chemistry to support conceptual design, detailed design and analysis, and cutting edge research. CFD tools must interface with structures and thermal modeling tools. Provide physical explanation and justification of results. Coordinate with the customer ensuring all objectives are met. Prepare written and verbal deliverables, reports and presentations for management and customer review as required by the contract.
Must have Masters or Ph.D. in an Aerospace or Mechanical (or similar) Engineering, Physics or Mathematics, and 10+ years of CFD and gridding experience for fluid dynamics of high speed weapons systems. Must possess a SECRET security clearance. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. The applicant must be able to direct a team in a collaborative, fast paced, environment. Dependability, initiative, and ability to solve problems both as part of a team and as an individual performer is a must. Proficiency with Microsoft Office; FORTRAN; Matlab; and engineering level through Reynolds averaged Navier Stokes Computational Fluid Dynamics models is a requirement.
DESIRED SKILLS: Large Eddy Simulation or Fluid-thermal-structural interaction of high speed weapons systems. Proficiency with the Pointwise gridding software. Proficiency using DoD Supercomputing Resource Centers (DSRC). Proficiency with a programming language such as Perl to automate running high volumes of CFD cases.
TRAVEL: Estimated lt; 20%.
