Research Engineer or Post-doc position in CFD of Hydrogen combustion

CONTACT: Daniel Rodriguez. 
HOST LAB: Numerical Methods in Aerospace Technology (, 
School of Aeronautics and Space Engineering
Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. 
LOCATION: Madrid, Spain.

We are looking for a research engineer or post-doctoral researcher to work on a exciting project in the field 
of Large Eddy Simulation of Hydrogen Combustion. 
The project aims at conducting high-fidelity simulations of turbulent partially premixed H2-air flames to 
study the flame dynamics and combustion instabilities. 
As a second step, the knowledge acquired with the simulations will guide passive and active flow control 
strategies for flame stabilization.

- A degree in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related fields. 
- Demonstrated experience in CFD, preferably with Finite Volume solvers (OpenFOAM, Fluent, etc.).
- Fluent English language.

- Citizen or Resident of a Schengen country.
- Demonstrated experience in CFD for combustion, in particular: Cantera, Flamelet Generated Manifolds, 
- A completed MSc or PhD degree in topics related to CFD for combustion.
- Excellent computational skills and interest in CFD programming. Our codes are based on Fortran, but 
previous experience in C/C++ is also useful.
The contract is offered initially for 1 year starting as soon as possible. Salary: 35-45 K€/year (gross), 
depending on qualifications.

Please send cover letter and resume plus relevant technical papers, reports, references, etc. to quoting the reference HCLES_UPM
