Closure Date* None *
In the framework of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Industrial Doctorate 
(EID) program H2020, project ASIMIA, NUMECA and the School of Aeronautics - 
Universidad Politécnica of Madrid (ETSIAE-UPM)  are looking for a PHD 
Candidate in CFD Development.

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

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 has its headquarters in 
Brussels (Belgium), subsidiaries in San Francisco (USA), Mons (Belgium), 
Tokyo (Japan), Bangalore (India), Beijing (China) and Hong-Kong and is
