  • a good knowledge of multiphase flows, heat transfer modeling, multi-species transport, turbulence
  • a working experience (industrial or academic) of at least 4 years on CFD-centric projects
  • a proficiency in different CFD software (Ansys-Fluent, OpenFOAM,…) and pre/post processing tools
  • scripting and programming experience (C++, Python, bash,…)
  • excellent analytical skills and solution-oriented thinking capabilities
  • autonomous working skills with an aptitude for team work
  • a fluency in French and English
