SINTEF is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia. Over the last 70 years, we have created value and innovation through knowledge generation nd development of technological solutions that are brought into practical use. Today, SINTEF is a broadly based, multidisciplinary research institute with international top-level expertise in technology, medicine and the social sciences, striving to implement our vision, 'Technology for a better society'. SINTEF is non- profit, and all margin is re-invested into building state-of-the-art infrastructure and developing new research.

The research group Flow Technology works with reactive single and multi-phase flow and process related problems and challenges of interest to industry and society. Some of the current research topics include CCS, wind energy, metal production, electrolysis, bubble plumes, reactor technology, wave phenomena and more. The group consists of researchers with a background in applied CFD, chemical engineering, numerical methods, programming and experiments.

Job description:

We like to strengthen our team with a scientist familiar with fluid dynamics and computational engineering. The scientist is envisaged to work on projects of high complexity and where we either apply available CFD codes such as ANSYS Fluent or OpenFoam, or further develop or adapt our own in-house CFD code. The group also sees an increasing demand for coupling flow and process models in order to support digitalization of the process industry. The application and adaptation of machine learning methods is expected to be of significant importance.

Thus we a looking for candidates with

  • MSc or PhD in preferably fluid dynamics, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, process control, physics, or mathematics
  • Experience in fluid dynamics

It also an advantage with experience within one or several of these topics

  • Code development (numerical methods and coding, exemplified by Fortran and Python)
  • CFD codes like ANSYS Fluent or OpenFoam (or other open source codes)
  • Machine learning methods

The candidate should be highly committed to applied science, be able to work in teams and strive for excellence. Good skills in English (written and oral) are required.

We offer:

  • Great opportunities for professional and personal development in an organization that values responsibility and initiative
  • Participation in innovative national and international projects in close collaboration with industry
