  • In this role, you will develop solutions to complex problems that require application of advanced principles. You will be depended on for uncovering and resolving issues associated with development and implementation of aerodynamic designs.
  • You will enable the successful completion of significant program efforts and represent the organization as an embedded authority on program efforts within the field of computational fluid dynamics and aerodynamics.
This position can be a Senior Aero Thermal Fluids Engineer or a Principal Aero Thermal Fluids Engineer, based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position.
For the Senior Aero Thermal Fluids Engineer, an advanced degree in a related field may be substituted for 2 additional years of experience and a PhD can account for 5 years of experience as required for this position.
For the Principal Aero Thermal Fluids Engineer, an advanced degree in a related field may be substituted for 3 additional years of experience.

Qualifications You Must Have:
  • Bachelors of Science degree in Engineering or Bachelors degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or Physics
  • For the Senior Thermal Fluids Engineer- a minimum of five (5) years o experience in aerodynamic design and analysis of flight vehicles
  • For the Principal Aero Thermal Fluids Engineer a minimum of eight (8) years of experience in aerodynamic design and analysis of flight vehicles
  • Minimum of three (3) years of experience with aerodynamic prediction using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methodologies.
  • Two (2) years of experience with MATLAB and/or Python.
  • Experience with subsonic, transonic, and/or supersonic aerodynamic applications of CFD.
  • The ability to obtain and maintain a U.S. security clearance prior to the start date. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance

Qualifications We Value:
  • Existing U.S. security clearance
  • Experience with Metacomp Technologies CFD++, Pointwise, and either Fieldview or Tecplot
  • Experience with Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) analysis and Large Eddy Simulation (LES)
  • Experience with CFD for hydrodynamic applications, aerothermal applications, and/or inlet design and analysis
  • Experience with vehicle stability and control, aerodynamic model generation, aerodynamic uncertainty quantification and modeling, and/or wind tunnel testing
  • Knowledge of and experience with verification and validation techniques
  • Experience working on multidisciplinary teams
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to communicate effectively with senior leadership and other engineering disciplines
  • Masters or PhD Degree in an Engineering discipline, Computer Science, Math or Physics
