InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, November 30, 2018
CFS are looking for an Engineer with cross-disciplinary interests in High Performance Computing (cpu 
clusters, GPU, Phi) and the associated IT (Linux) challenges combined with a strong application interest in 
CFD. The successful candidate will participate in the development of both RANS and higher order LES for 
industrial application with particular emphasis on developing efficient parallel algorithms.  You will have 
good personal organizational skills together with the ability to collaborate with and motivate others, plus 
project planning experience.  

The ideal candidate will be PhD qualified with the following required skills:
1.	CFD solver developing experience (Finite Volume or Flux Reconstruction methods)
2.	Programming skills: Fortran, C, C++ and Python and development tools as CMake, SVN, Mantis…
3.	Parallel programming (MPI and OpenMP) and HPC experience (cpu and/or GPU)
4.	Expertise and motivation to assist with Linux systems administration, including workstation and 
clusters installation and maintenance (in support of our existing part time system administration role)

The following would be desirable: 
1.	Experience on virtual machines, networking, VPN and security

About Cambridge Flow Solutions:	
Cambridge Flow Solutions Ltd (CFS) was founded in 1999, as a spin out from Cambridge University 
Engineering Department, to provide state-of-the-art software tools and consulting for engineers at the 
leading edge of Computational Fluid Dynamics. CFS has since developed into a provider of proprietary 
software and services to support engineering simulation. CFS’ approach centers on providing practical 
software for real-world applications. 
The company’s highly-integrated software is built on novel algorithms that provide a step improvement in 
reliability and performance, leveraging the power of high-performance computing and delivering 
advanced capability. The company’s focus is on continuing to research & develop, BOXER, an end-to-end 
parallel engineering simulation environment with the vision to integrate geometry editing, meshing, 
solving and post-processing, specifically tailored to highly scalable distributed computing platforms. 
BOXER imports geometry from a variety of sources – including those widely used in Computer-Aided 
Engineering (CAE) systems - and then uses our novel algorithms to construct a hybrid mesh (consisting of 
hexahedral, tetrahedral, prismatic & pyramidal elements) which is then exported to support a variety of 
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and/or Finite Element Analysis (FEA) simulation tools. The resulting 
simulations are central to both research & development and design activities in many industries: 
turbomachinery (aero-engines, land-based power generation (both gas & steam turbines), 
turbocharging), marine, automotive & environmental.
Our main area of business is tightly coupled collaboration with a small number of blue-chip clients in what 
we call “Development Partnerships”. We act as “capability providers” in the mid TRL (Technology 
Readiness Level) range pulling promising new ideas & software technology from lower to higher TRL such 
that application can start on real, relevant engineering problems within the Partners. Looking ahead, some 
of the software is maturing to commercial standard and we are starting to develop and grow a more 
conventional licensing business. 

With offices in UK and Japan (and soon the USA) with possible secondment opportunities, we are 
continually looking for exceptional talent, particularly in the areas of CFD/CAE engineering, consulting, 
sales and support. We offer stimulating work in a young and dynamic company with exciting prospects.

Salary is £35,000 - £55,000 pa. negotiable depending on experience.

Cambridge Flow Solutions Ltd is committed to equality of opportunity.
