Finite Element Developer (m/f/d) Computational Electromagnetics

Job Description

Video: MEET US in 2 Minutes!

Are you brave enough to challenge yourself?

The STAR-CCM+ team is seeking a motivated developer to contribute to the development of the STAR-CCM+ electromagnetic solution. Computational electromagnetics is one of the recent extensions of STAR-CCM+ multi-physics solver family. The traditional finite volume flow centric code is being extended to allow optimal discretization for computational electromagnetics, solid mechanics and complex polymer fluids. This means new challenges, frequent enhancement and re-architecture of established simulation components towards efficient finite element support.

The primary goal of the development is to expand the modeling capabilities and support simulations of low frequency electromagnetic devices within STAR-CCM+ for efficient multi-physics modeling including coupling to heat transfer, flow and solid stress models.

Supplementing the low-frequency electromagnetics capabilities of STAR-CCM+ is the ability to model plasmas in many industrial applications. Their complex physics and coupling to chemistry and flow solvers presents many challenges, both in terms of modeling and efficiently achieving an accurate numerical solution. As such, continued expansion and support in the realm of plasma physics would be a secondary objective for development.

We offer a role with responsibility, independence and the possibility to contribute proactively. We foster a teamwork culture with room for individual development.

Join our team as “Finite Element Developer (m/f/d)” in Erlangen/Nürnberg, Prague, Vienna or any other location in Europe. We even can imagine the US as location.

You'll help our customers drive digital innovation by
  • Design and development of components for finite element computational electromagnetics solvers including
  • Modeling of magnetic and electric fields, and/or plasmas
  • Coupling of electromagnetic field solutions to other physics models
  • Development of discretization techniques required for high fidelity and robust solutions
  • Development of efficient linear solvers and pre-conditioners
  • Interaction with other STAR-CCM+ teams
  • Working in large, geographically distributed teams

What do you need to realize what matters
  • Masters, PhD or equivalent degree in electrical engineering, applied math or computer science
  • Proven strong C++ development skills
  • Experience in large-scale software development
  • Demonstrated knowledge of algorithms and techniques used in finite element simulations of electromagnetic problems
  • Good working knowledge of numerical methods required for finite element electric and magnetic field solvers
  • Experience in the area of plasma modeling is beneficial
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Experience with modern CPU optimization, vectorization and GPU programming is a plus
