Cerfacs is a private research, delevopment, transfer and training center for 
modeling, simulation and high-performance computing. Cerfacs designs, develops 
and proposes innovation software methods and solutions to meet the needs of its 
partners in the aeronautics, space, climate, environment and energy sectors. 
Cerfacs trains students, researchers and engineers in simulation and high-
performance computing.
Cerfacs works closely with its seven partners: Airbus, Cnes, EDF, Météo France, 
Onera, Safran et Total.

The Energy & Safety team, formerly known as the CFD-Combustion team, focuses on 
cross-disciplinary activities aimed at developing, optimizing and deploying 
scientific codes dedicated to advanced combustion simulations of industrial 
relevance. The team focuses particularly on flows encountered for aircraft, 
rockets, helicopters, car engines, turbines and more. As a result of such 
efforts, essential tools emerge for a wide range of applications, with the 
leitmotiv: let’s calculate systems before we build them. More specifically, team 
members develop models and tools covering chemical reduction, turbulence, 
combustion, two-phase systems, combustion instabilities, etc., to meet both 
academic and industrial challenges. Thanks to its position, the team 
collaborates with numerous scientific groups, design offices of Cerfacs 
associates, and other Cerfacs teams.

As part of its activities with Cerfacs and external partners, the E&S team is 
called upon to respond to various requests. Following a reorganization and the 
rise of research themes around the energy transition, several short- and medium-
term issues need to be covered by scientific calculation in the coming years. 
Indeed, a large number of industrial sectors require a clear vision of these 
issues and associated challenges, as well as the implementation of effective 
solutions with an expert view of the environmental impact of these choices. In 
order to meet these needs, either scientific in the case of combustion or 
simulations, or in terms of training and expertise, or even to train tomorrow’s 
decision-makers and engineers, the team is seeking to strengthen its position 
and is looking for a researcher in these fields.

You will be responsible for the monitoring and scientific development of models 
dedicated to the turbulent combustion of new fuels (in liaison with the team and 
the CFD code AVBP) for their future exploitation.
You would like to obtain a HdR (if you don't already have one)..
You will contribute to and potentially represent Cerfacs in the area of SAF and 
alternative fuels, and pollutant emissions: exchanges with associates, relations 
with players in the worlds of research and industry, and HPC (GENCI, EuroHPC, 
computing centers), participation in and organization of national and 
international projects, supervision of interns, PhD students and post-docs, in 
collaboration with members of E&S and other Cerfacs teams.
You will manage the implementation of Cerfacs codes and models, making them 
available to target users in the short term.
You will contribute to the follow-up and operational support as well as the 
training of Cerfacs staff around AVBP and the team’s research themes.

You have a PhD and at least 2 to 3 years’ research experience (HdR is a plus) in 
advanced turbulent combustion modeling, scientific computing / HPC, chemistry 
You are interested in the energy transition and industry’s use of new fuels such 
as SAF, hydrogen, ammonia…. You are also interested in their impact on the 
You have professional experience of supervising young researchers and have 
worked in a team context on large-scale scientific projects in collaboration 
with various entities (industrial and academic).
You have professional experience in drafting and monitoring projects.
You are able to make proposals in your research activities.
You are familiar with software engineering and programming tools related to HPC: 
Fortran, MPI, Git/Gitlab, debuggers, profilers.
You are able to present collective results at international conferences.

Broad access to technology, a rich interpersonal environment, in-house skills 
recognized nationally and internationally.
An inclusive and equitable work environment.
A structure accessible to people with disabilities.
A complementary health insurance scheme offering excellent health care coverage 
in addition to social security, with the possibility of enrolling family members 
(spouse and children).
6 weeks’ annual leave (with the possibility of 22 extra days’ leave per year 
linked to your choice of a 39-hour rather than 35-hour working week).
Flexible working arrangements, with the possibility of working from home up to 
two days a week.
A sustainable mobility package enabling employers to pay up to a maximum of 500 
euros a year to cover the home-to-work travel costs of staff who cycle to work.

To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to , 
applications are open until 31/07/2024.
See you soon at CERFACS!
