Will you become our new advanced simulation star?

Description

You will be modelling a highly diverse set of treatment and production processes for process industry clients worldwide. By mastering and applying computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and eventually other process simulation tools, you will unravel what is happening inside reactors and will be able to improve processes significantly. After a while, you will be able to execute rather spectacular modelling work, for which AM-TEAM is known. The complexity of the modelling projects will grow along with and will be adjusted to your modelling experience. The objectives of your modelling projects will be highly case dependent, but mostly you will make clients happy with: saving costs, saving energy, improving technology and competitive position, accelerating technology development and improving process performance and reliability. You will also be developing a broad knowledge on existing and novel industry processes.

Main responsibilities

  • Setting up the planning of modelling projects in collaboration with the project manager
  • Setting up the geometry of unit processes, using the commercial -CFD software Ansys Fluent
  • Setting up CFD simulations: meshing, defining boundary conditions (eg inlets, outlets, flow rates, …),model selection in collaboration with senior experts
  • Running simulations and postprocessing of simulation results
  • Internal and external communication of project progress
  • Reporting of project results for clients and other interested parties (e.g. the sector internationally, scientific community)
  • Presenting project outcomes at meetings and events
  • Guidance of internship and master thesis students

The person we are looking for

  • You deeply share AM-TEAM’s core values (will be key in the assessment)
    • Fun (it must be a pleasure working for and with us; you have passion for this job)
    • Ambition (continuously pushing the state of the art of models and technology forward; you have a growth mindset (i.e. you want to grow your technical and/or personal skills continuously))
    • AM-TEAM spirit (open feedback culture, humility, sharing and helping others, strong partnerships)
    • Good modelling practice (applying the right models in the right way to reach well defined objectives)
  • You pay attention to the type of company (large vs small, established vs growing, values, ambition, …) you want to work for and make conscious choices based on that
  • You have an MSc in (environmental) engineering (newly graduated is fine)
  • You have a deep passion for and belief in process simulation
  • If you would have prior working experience: relevant CFD or simulation experience, or a deep urge to acquire the skills
  • You have a passion for technology and innovation
  • You are eager to learn and curious
  • You have excellent computer skills, preferably knowing one or more programming languages
  • You are fluent in English, both written and orally

What we offer you, besides your salary and benefits

  • A team with likeminded people willing to share and care
  • A fast growing scale-up with international ambitions, offering a dynamic entrepreneurial environment with ample opportunities for fast personal growth in different areas
  • Scientific, managerial and other development opportunities, including AM-TEAM’s internal development seminars
  • The opportunity to grow your network internationally
  • A nice office space in Ghent, but also the flexibility to work remotely (to be discussed)
