BELGIUM - Research Engineer Aerodynamic simulations for turbomachinery design (BE-JO-2022-003)


To support the expanding research activities focusing on CFD for turbomachinery applications, we are looking for a senior research engineer and offer a permanent contract (CDI) within our team in Belgium.


Job description

We are working on a daily basis on challenging projects with our clients and research partners. These projects are often integrated in a multi/pluridisciplinary context that relies on a strong CFD-centric expertise, involving aerodynamic, aeroacoustic, aeroelastic, aeromechanical and/or aerothermal analyses. Passion drives us; boldness moves us forward to ambitious projects. Scientific rigor and intellectual curiosity fuel our quest for high-quality work.

Your aerodynamic expertise and skills will allow you to set up and further develop CFD simulation strategies that require complex meshing and/or efficient multifidelity methods. You will be responsible for the technical project progress, in order to meet our clients’ expectations and in line with our Quality Management System (EN9100).



We are looking for a candidate with:

  • an aeronautical engineering master degree (or equivalent), with a PhD degree as a valuable asset
  • a solid background in numerical methods for Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • a working experience (industrial or academic) of at least 2 years on turbomachinery-related projects
  • a strong affinity with turbomachinery design and an interest in optimization and data mining techniques
  • 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
  • development experience of low-order fidelity tools as a welcomed skill
