CategoryContract Work
EmployerGerman Aerospace Center (DLR)
LocationGermany, Lower Saxony, Göttingen
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
Start your mission with DLR

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research 
centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. Here, 10,000 
employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of 
aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. Their 
missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications 
and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – 
particularly more females – at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in 
an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.

For our Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology

in Göttingen, we wish to recruit a qualified

Aerospace or Mechanical Engineer, Mathematician, Physicist (f/m/x)

Development, Implementation and Application of Mesh Adaptation for Numerical 
Flow Simulation

Your mission:
The Institute of Aerodynamics and Flow Technology is a leading research 
institute in the field of aerodynamics/aeroacoustics of airplanes and 
aerothermodynamics of space vehicles.

The C²A²S²E department develops numerical methods for multidisciplinary 
simulation and optimization of air vehicles. Besides physical modeling of 
complex flows and the development of modern numerical algorithms, our research 
activities cover the software-based integration of all relevant disciplines, the 
development of efficient optimization strategies as well as surrogate modeling 
based on higher fidelity methods.

The core task of the position is the further development, implementation and 
application of an adaptation capability of CFD computational meshes in the 
framework of the cooperation between DLR, ONERA and Airbus for the CFD-code 
CODA. The focus of this work is on the extending the adaptation capabilities by 
including the curvature of surface geometry and by the implementation of 
anisotropic element division. Another important aspect is the continuous 
application of the mesh adaptation to industrially relevant aerodynamic 
testcases to evaluate its robustness and the accuracy of CFD-solutions as well 
as identifying room for improvement. The status of work will be regularly 
presented and discussed within the CODA-cooperation.


Your qualifications:

• Master or Diploma in Engineering (AeroSpace, Mechanical Engineering or 
similar) or Science (Mathematics, Physics)
• expertise and experience in the field of mesh generation, e.g. for numerical 
flow simulation
• expertise in the field of numerical methods, preferably for numerical flow 
• substantial knowledge in advanced programming languages (Python, C++) and 
parallel programming
• strong teamwork and results-oriented working skills
• very good oral and written communication skills in English
• ideally expertise and experience in the field of development and application 
of mesh adaptation techniques
• expertise in the field of aerodynamics and flow technology welcome
• experience in software development in a team preferred
• German skills are a plus

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your 
commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique 
infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled 
scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional 
objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family 
and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders 
(f/m/x). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration 
in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
