Physicist, Engineer Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or similar (f/m/x)

The Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology is a leading research institute in the field of aerodynamics/aeroacoustics of airplanes and aerothermodynamics of space vehicles.

The C²A²S²E department develops numerical methods for multidisciplinary simulation and optimization of air vehicles. In addition to physical modeling of complex flows and the development of modern numerical algorithms, our research activities cover the software-based integration of all relevant disciplines, the development of efficient optimization strategies as well as surrogate modeling based on higher fidelity methods.

The hybrid flow solver "TAU" developed in the department is routinely used for a broad application range in research and industry. At present, the TAU successor "CODA" is developed in a cooperation with Airbus and ONERA. In CODA, the differential Reynolds stress models developed by DLR for industrial application are to be made available in CODA, as they are particularly suitable and indispensable for the exact computation of external aerodynamic, flight-relevant flows. The implementation is to be carried out with a high degree of flexibility, in order to be able to quickly implement future extensions of these models in CODA. In addition, implementation in CODA, which is based on other spatial discretization methods compared to TAU, must be robust and reliably applicable to industrially relevant aircraft configurations.

The position is designed as a sponsorship position and the work will be performed in close cooperation with Airbus Commercial. Your main tasks as a post holder will be to scientific research and integration work to extend the joint DLR, Airbus and ONERA for the highly accurate prediction of critical flow conditions as they occur in the critical flow conditions such as those occurring at the edge of the flight envelope (e.g. pressure-induced separation) through a robustly applicable differential Reynolds stress model.

  • university degree (Master/Diploma) in engineering (aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, or equivalent) or science (mathematics, physics, or equivalent) 
  • substantial knowledge in advanced programming languages (preferably object-oriented C++ and Python)
  • expertise in numerical flow simulation and the simulation of turbulent flows 
  • knowledge in development, validation and coupling of CFD codes 
  • knowledge of aerodynamics and fluid mechanics 
  • experience with CFD code development in a team desirable

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
