Start your mission with DLR

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research 
centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. Here, 10,000 
employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of 
aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. Their 
missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications 
and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – 
particularly more females – at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in 
an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.

For our Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology in Göttingen, we wish to 
recruit a qualified

Engineer mechanical engineering, aerospace technology, Mathematician, Physicist 

Development and application of a rapid-CFD capability based on the next-
generation CFD code developed by Airbus, ONERA and DLR 

Your mission:
The Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology is a leading research 
institute in the field of aerodynamics/aeroacoustics of airplanes and 
aerothermodynamics of space vehicles.

The C²A²S²E department develops numerical methods for multidisciplinary 
simulation and optimization of air vehicles. Besides physical modeling of 
complex flows and the development of modern numerical algorithms, our research 
activities cover the software-based integration of all relevant disciplines, the 
development of efficient optimization strategies as well as surrogate modeling 
based on higher fidelity methods. 

The core task of the position is the development and application of a rapid-CFD 
capability to be pursued based on the CFD-Code CODA, which is being developed 
collaboratively by Airbus, ONERA and DLR. The rapid-CFD capability comprises 
automatic octree-based cartesian mesh generation using the Cassiopée code, which 
is passed on to CODA via the FlowSimulator Data Manager (FSDM) platform and, the 
application of a RANS solver in CODA utilizing Immersed Boundary Methods (IBM) 
in conjunction with wall models. The focus of the offered position is on setting 
up the overall workflow (Cassiopée → FSDM → CODA) and the automation of the 
interaction of these components. 

Foreign applicants are encouraged to apply for the position with a DAAD-
Your qualifications:
• PhD/Promotion in the field of Engineering or Sciences
• In-depth knowledge and experience in the field of numerical fluid mechanics 
and its algorithms, preferably Immersed Boundary Conditions
• In-depth knowledge and experience in the field of mesh generations, preferably 
octree-based cartesian meshes
• In-depth knowledge in advanced programming languages (Python, C++), experience 
in software development in a team is preferred.
• Strong teamwork and results-oriented working skills
• Good oral and written communication skills in English, German skills are a 

Your benefits:
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your 
commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique 
infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled 
scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional 
objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family 
and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders 
(f/m/x). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration 
in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
