Title5 PhD Candidates - CFD Development Engineers
CategoryJob in Industry
EmployerNUMECA International
LocationBelgium, Brussels
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
In the framework of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks 
H2020 project ASIMIA, between NUMECA and the School of Aeronautics - 
Universidad Politécnica of Madrid
(ETSIAE-UPM) we have openings for 5 PhD students in training and research in 
innovative simulation methods. 

Both teams have a strong background in Computational Fluid Dynamics, high 
order methods,multi-physics and High-Performance Computing. 

NUMECA Int., a worldwide operating CFD software company, develops 
engineering flow simulation software widely used by engineers and designers 
in a large range of fluid engineering applications, from 
Aerospace, Power Generation, Energy to Race Cars and Ships. NUMECA is 
rapidly expanding and is continuously looking for young and senior talented 
coworkers. The company has its
headquarters in Brussels (Belgium), subsidiaries in San Francisco (USA), 
Mons and Leuven (Belgium), Tokyo (Japan), Bangalore (India), Beijing (China) 
and Hong-Kong and is active worldwide through its 
network of agents and partners in Asia, Europe and America.

The Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) is the oldest and largest 
Spanish technical University, with more than 4.000 faculty members, around 
48.000 undergraduate students and 6.000 postgraduates in 
21 Schools of study. UPM Schools cover most of engineering disciplines, 
including Aeronautics. The School of Aeronautics ETSIAE-UPM is one the best 
schools of engineering in Spain and the oldest 
providing an aeronautical degree. ETSIAE-UPM was ranked 41st of the world in 
Shanghai’s ranking for aeronautical engineering in 2017. The Dept. of 
Applied Mathematics at ETSIAE-UPM 
( offers a young dynamic environment, where 
currently 12 PhD students and 20 academics perform research in fluids and 
numerical methods. 

* What will you do?
The main objective is to improve the predictive capabilities of current 
aerodynamic based High Order Methods (HOM) for Computational Fluid Dynamics 
Description of the 5 PhD positions:
1. Curved mesh generation for HOM: high-fidelity surface representation and 
mesh adaptation strategies based on selective h-p strategies
2. Efficient solutions for HOM solvers, including multigrid technologies on 
modern hardware architectures
3. Advanced turbulence modelling for HOM-CFD for RANS, URANS and hybrid 
RANS-LES methodologies for complex aerodynamic flows
4. Development of HOM methodologies for fluid-thermal multiphysics 
5. Development of HOM methodologies for fluid-structure multiphysics 

The PhD candidates will be required to spend half of the time in Brussels in 
the HOM
development team and the other half in Madrid, at the School of Aeronautics 
- Universidad
Politécnica of Madrid (ETSIAE-UPM), in the Applied Mathematics department.

* Who and what are we looking for from you?
Mandatory technical skills and experience:
● Degree in engineering, aeronautics, applied mathematics or physics, or 
equivalent expertise: MEng or MSc grade and less than 4 years of full time 
research experience (entitled to enter in a PhD 
● Excellent computational skills and interest in CFD programming (e.g. C++, 
Fortran) and fluid modelling are expected
● Familiarity with finite elements and turbulence modelling is not necessary 
but would be an asset

* Language skills:
● Fluent English language is a prerequisite for the role.
You should be highly motivated and dynamic, have good communication and 
analytical skills, be a stress-resistant problem solver, and be a team 
player able to meet the highest quality standards.

* What do we offer?
All positions include a very competitive 3 year scholarship based on 
European project standards. (1.5 years under a contract in Belgium and 1.5 
years in Spain under a contract with School of Aeronautics 
- Universidad Politécnica of Madrid (ETSIAE-UPM)). We also offer to work in 
a stimulating, young and multicultural environment, and to be part of a 
dynamic and growing company at Numeca and research team 

* How to apply?
Please send cover letter and resume plus relevant technical papers, reports, 
references, etc. to and to

Indicate clearly the reference job number: DEV18-10 and your prefered job 
position (1 to 5)
