TitleResearch Scientist/Engineer-CFD Software Development
CategoryJob in Industry
EmployerScience and Technology Corp.
LocationUnited States, CA, Moffett Field
InternationalNo, only national applications will be considered
Closure DateWednesday, June 01, 2022
Science and Technology Corp. (STC) supports the US Army's Technology Development 
Directorate (TDD) located at the NASA Ames Research Center at Moffett Field, CA. 
Much of this support involves the development and application of modeling and 
simulation tools for rotorcraft aerodynamics and structural dynamics in Army 
acquisition-related programs such as Future Vertical Lift. These modeling and 
simulation activities aim to improve performance, reduce risk, and enhance 
safety for Army rotorcraft. The Army’s primary computational fluid dynamics tool 
for high-fidelity rotary-wing aeromechanics simulations is called “Helios.” The 
Helios software consists of a number of multi-disciplinary computational modules 
that connect through a lightweight and object-oriented Python language 
infrastructure. Helios can analyze multiple-rotor, multiple-rotor and fuselage 
combinations with intended analysis applications for new Army rotorcraft 
acquisition activities that are part of the Army’s Future Vertical Lift (FVL) 

Responsibilities:  The Helios development plan calls for annual software 
releases with major upgrades and improvements to individual software modules 
with each new release. This position requires the formulation, development, and 
testing of new and improved software modules for Helios. These new software 
improvements will involve new and improved, solution algorithms for existing 
flow solvers, new gridding strategies and flow solvers, new modeling 
capabilities such as rotorcraft maneuver, and new strategies for improved 
parallel scalability. This requirement requires creativity and vision for 
developing, implementing, and testing new capabilities that are targeted for 
future Helios software releases.

Qualifications: The successful candidate should have substantial experience and 
expertise in the development and application of high-fidelity computational 
fluid dynamics software and high-performance parallel computing. Experience in 
multi-disciplinary fluid and structural dynamics problems related to rotorcraft 
is also a plus. M.S. degree in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering is required, 
Ph.D. is preferred.  Candidate must be a U.S. citizen or Green Card Holder.
