Will you become our new CFD guru?


As a Senior CFD Expert, you will be fullfilling the role of experienced technical lead engineer. You can guide your CFD colleagues with the selection of the right CFD methodologies, can share your experiences and help bringing their technical skills to the next level. Our customers will rely on you if senior CFD expertise is required. While you have the in depth expertise, it is very important that you are driven by practicality. Your role can be summarised as follows: you make sure our customers problems are solved in a practical way by selecting the right methodologies while everyone in our technical team learns and grows (i.e. you help them succeeding).

    • 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 of PhD in (environmental/Civil/Chemical/Process) engineering or relevant field (you have followed CFD courses)

    • You are able to define and develop the CFD methodology for industrial problems
  • Solid experience with Ansys workbench workflow
  • Experience in creating tailored geometries and meshes for CFD models and applications
