Application deadline

Type of contract


We are looking for a hardworking and skilled post-doctoral researcher to work on an exciting project in the field of Numerical simulation. You will join an established group (UPM, BSC, CIMNE, ONERA, DLR, CERFACS and AIRBUS) working at the forefront of numerical simulations for Computational Fluid Dynamics problems.

The project requires a deep knowledge of numerical simulation and software development for the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations. Key objectives are the development of algorithms for numerical efficiency, algorithms for data management and the efficiency implementation of those algorithms in the most advanced HPC platforms (MareNostrum).

The final objective of NextSim is the development of a new simulation tool that will be the new reference for aeronautical design. Additionally, the results will be presented at the most meaningful international conferences and workshops and will be disseminated in the most relevant archival journals in the field of fluid mechanics and scientific computing.

Who and what are we looking for from you?

Technical skills and experience:

  • PhD in engineering, applied mathematics, physics, or equivalent expertise.
  • Excellent computational skills and language programming expertise in C++.
  • Deep knowledge of numerical methods is mandatory. High-order schemes, spectral element and discontinuous Galerkin mandatory is recommended.

Language skills:

  • Fluent English language is a prerequisite for the role.

You should be highly motivated and dynamic, have good communication and analytical skills, be a stress-resistant problem solver, and be a team player able to meet the highest quality standards.

What do we offer?

All positions include a very competitive 3 year contract. We also offer to work in a stimulating, young and multicultural environment, and to be part of a dynamic and growing research team at ETSIAE.
