INTERN - CFD Engineering, Water & Environmental Applications
Flow Science, Inc.
August 31, 2018
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Full Time - Internship
Civil - Design, Environmental - Research and Development, Environmental - Wastewater
Flow Science has a 3-month internship opportunity for a recent or imminent MSCE grad. This internship has the possibility of becoming a regular position at the end of the internship depending on the incumbent's performance and fit.
Intern will focus on: Water & Environmental applications
Principal tasks and responsibilities:
Validations: Indentify appropriate experimental or analytical results against which to test FLOW-3D® for specific application areas. Develop and document validations comparing FLOW-3D® to the experimental or analytical results.
Support: Assist Flow Science’s staff in providing timely and complete responses to requests for technical support from FLOW-3D® customers and associates.
Training: Attend training classes for FLOW-3D®
Interns will contribute and learn by:
Developing advanced CFD modeling skills with the CFD tool FLOW-3D®
Developing an understanding of the available physics modules available to FLOW-3D® users
Developing an in-depth understanding of CFD methods applied to industry-relevant problems
Developing an in-depth understanding of the physics and processes associated with industry-relevant problems
Developing a broad overview of key market segments relevant to free surface CFD applications
Interacting on a daily basis with the solver, GUI, sales and marketing teams at Flow Science
Having an opportunity to fine tune their presentation skills, through internal presentations of their work as well as possibly live presentations to potential prospects
Ideal Candidate: Recent or imminent Master’s degree in Civil Engineering with hydraulics/water civil infrastructure emphasis, physical oceanography, maritime or coastal engineering. Strong understanding of fluid mechanics and open channel flow principles is required. Prior hydraulic modeling experience using 1D, 2D, or 3D/CFD methods strongly preferred. Strong 3D CAD skills and GIS skills also highly desired. Candidates should have exceptional oral and written communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills. The candidate should have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
