The Southwest Division (SWD) of Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) in 
Albuquerque, NM, has an opportunity for an entry-level candidate to contribute 
to computer model development, calculation performance and computational 
analysis for large Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. The 
successful applicant will perform CFD computer simulations on local computing 
clusters and High Performance Computing (HPC) systems to support the 
development and use of these computer codes for a variety of applications such 
as airblast, shock tubes, explosive detonations, explosive fill analysis, agent 
release, subsonic, supersonic, and hypersonic flows and reacting flows. He/she 
will work with a team of highly skilled engineers and scientists that leverage 
multidisciplinary backgrounds to provide innovative solutions to our customers. 
The programs impact national security and Department of Defense (DoD) mission 
areas. Opportunities include work in areas such as nuclear and conventional 
weapon effects, air blast injury, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), advanced 
energetics (enhanced explosives), coupled fluid/structure interaction, 
hypersonics, aerothermodynamics, and peridynamics.

ARA offers competitive compensation and excellent benefits including medical 
and dental coverage, 401(k) profit sharing, life and long-term disability 
insurance, performance bonuses, and professional development.
