Flow Science has an immediate opening for a CFD engineer with experience in municipal/wastewater engineering. The candidate will work as part of a multi-faceted team to expand and support our growing customer base of FLOW-3D users in municipal applications. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of fluid mechanics and open channel flow principles. Prior hydraulic modeling experience using 1D, 2D methods for municipal/wastewater applications is required. Experience with 3D/CFD modeling is highly desired. Strong 3D CAD skills and GIS skills are 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.
M.S. Civil/Environment Engineering or related engineering degree with emphasis on water/wastewater applications
- 3+ years of experience in municipal/wastewater applications
- Hydraulic analysis of water and wastewater treatment and conveyance facilities
- Experience and expertise in conventional or industry standard modeling techniques and software
- Wastewater treatment processes, including: activated sludge, aeration tank and contact tank
- Conveyance facilities and systems
- Combined sewer overflows
- Transient (surge) analysis
Principal tasks and responsibilities
