Job Description

A vacancy for a Computational fluid dynamics software developer (d/f/m) has arisen within Airbus commercial Aircraft in Hamburg. You will join the Flight Physics Capabilities Department, a transnational team developing the New Generation CODA CFD solver.


Mission and activities

The Flight Physics Capabilities teams are in charge of developing and maintaining the simulation means needed for a wide variety of disciplines such as Aerodynamics, Loads, Handling Qualities, Mass Properties and Aircraft Performance. In that mission, these teams play a central role in the on-going end-to-end digitalization of Airbus processes for aircraft design, manufacturing and services, while at the same time supporting the growth of the production and daily support to Customers services.


The Role

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has progressed rapidly during the last several decades and has fundamentally changed the aircraft design process. Supporting the aero designer at the beginning, theadvances of this computational science, closely coupled with the rapid progress of High Performance Computing (HPC) hardware at the same time, has become an essential capability in the simulation-based engineering design process.


In this context, Onera, DLR and Airbus have launched three years ago a partnership to develop a common New Generation of CFD solver named CODA enabling to model situations not covered by existing computational fluid dynamics software and to sustain future advances in CFD and hardware.


In this role, you will be fully involved in the continuous development, the validation of CODA solver and its integration in the Airbus FlowSimulator framework. You will be supported by our technical experts and will interact with a wide range of customers involved in aerodynamic shape design, fluid-structure interaction simulation, heat transfer, multidisciplinary analysis and optimization processes.


Moreover, you will:

  • develop and work closely within the CODA team across Airbus and with our research partners

  • contribute to the code review and the development acceptance

  • support the overall and global strategy for the Airbus computational simulation

  • be involved in the network of highly motivated, experienced and skills researchers and developers

  • gather and disseminate knowledge of methodologies, requirements and lessons learnt across the teams


In addition as the Flight Physics capability specialist you will also:

  • # Show initiative in the proactive way of working in the Flight Physics environment widely expending usage of transverse workflows and harmonised working environment

  • # Provide support to customers on applied CFD

  • # Contribute to the collection of ideas and initiatives on how to improve transverse way of working through Agile method


We seek individuals who will be able to make a direct contribution to the development of our existing and future tool frameworks.


Required Skills

As the successful candidate you will be able to demonstrate the following skills and competencies:

  • Master degree in engineering, applied mathematics or computer science

  • Experience in several areas of numerical methods including Finite Volume and High Order CFD methods on structured or unstructured grids fitting with modern HPC hardware

  • Mastering state of the art Computational Fluid Dynamics methods in one or more areas of CFD or multiphysics modelling including fluid dynamics, heat transfer, fluid-structure interaction, turbulence resolving

  • Proficient in object oriented programming C++ and Python

  • Experience developing and testing large scale academic, open source, industrial or commercial CFD codes

  • Knowledge of source control, continuous integration and software testing tools

  • Leadership - ability to bring people together

  • Good interpersonal skills

  • Innovative mind-set - Ability to convince

  • PhD and or industrial experience would be welcome


What do we offer:

  • Challenging tasks for/with unique services and products

  • Pleasant working atmosphere in a professional and international work environment

  • Exciting development opportunities and perspectives

  • Extensive company training offers (eLearning and Classroom Trainings)

  • Flexible working hours
