· Expertise in thermal system modeling, heat transfer, thermal radiation, solar radiation, heat exchanger, conjugate heat transfer, numerical solution of PDEs using FV or FE methods

· Expertise in object-oriented C++ software development

· Expertise in high-fidelity and high-performance parallel CFD algorithms

· Expertise in development of complex software applications using modern design patterns and principles

Preferred Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience:

In addition, preference will be given to candidates with the following skills and experience:

· Expertise in areas of physical science: thermodynamics, heat transfer, multiphase, or combustion

· Expertise in application of CFD methods: vehicle aerodynamics, internal combustion engines, turbomachinery

· Experience with C++ Expression Templates and Template Meta-Programming

· Experience with GPGPU programming

· Experience with Java programming

· Experience in multi-team, collaborative software development including source control and collaborative design and code reviews
