| ||Job Description: Spectral Energies invites applications from outstanding individuals for a basic research scientist position to conduct research concerning modeling of combustion and acoustics. The primary responsibility of the position will be to utilize improved understanding of fluid dynamics, combustion, and acoustics to construct a range of models from simple phenomenological models to executing complicated multi physics modeling of combustion and thermoacoustic. The incumbent modeler will work as part of our interdisciplinary in-house team to incorporate new physical understanding of the coupling of fluid mechanics, combustion and acoustics derived from experiments into improved predictive tools. The incumbent will report finding to the research community through conference presentations and papers and journal papers.
Candidates must have an earned doctoral degree in aerospace or mechanical engineering or a closely related field from an accredited college or university by the start date.
This position requires a strong background in applied mathematics. In addition a background in fluid mechanics, turbulence, acoustics and combustion is required. Extensive knowledge of numerical and analytical methods to create physics based models and integration into larger multi-physics models is highly regarded. Finally knowledge of analysis tools such as spectral analysis, Proper Orthogonal Decomposition, and stochastic processes is desirable. Also desired is proficiency in using commercially available three-dimensional computational tools for finite element analysis, fluid mechanics and combustion, such as, but not limited to, ANSYS, COMSOL, National Combustion Code, Fluent, or Star-CD, CFD++, GASP, CFX, or CHEMKIN. Also desirable is proficiency in using software packages used for pre-processing (e.g. grid generation), simulation, and post-processing. Inherent to the position is the development of new modeling technology. The position also demands a motivated and highly creative individual. Programming experience in FORTRAN, C or C++, Matlab, and Simulink are required.
U.S. citizenship or permanent residence is required
Reporting findings is a hallmark of conducting research. Applicants must have good oral and written communication skills. Motivated candidates with journal and conference publication records, especially modeling and model development as applied to combustion and thermoacoustics, are encouraged to apply
The anticipated start date is January 10, 2011, but the search will continue until the position is filled. The successful candidate must relocate to the Dayton, Ohio area.
