Responsibilities and Duties:
This position is for a research aerospace engineer who possesses a multi-disciplinary aerospace background preferably in aerodynamics, CFD, structural dynamics, aeroelasticity, and flight dynamics and control. The successful candidate will become a member of a high-performance team conducting work to support research activities under the Advanced Air Transport Technology (AATT) project. Specific duties will include:
  • Perform aerodynamic modeling and simulation of flexible wing aircraft and wing shaping control concepts using aerodynamic tools such as vortex-lattice codes AVL, vortex-lattice code (VORLAX/VSPAERO), VSP Aero and research/commercial CFD codes.
  • Perform aeroelastic analysis by coupling finite-element codes (NASTRAN and in-house code) to aerodynamic tools.
  • Support the development of coupled aeroelastic-flight dynamic model in Matlab Simulink environment.
  • Support multidisciplinary optimization.
  • Perform aerodynamic and finite element code modification and code development
  • Publish research results in relevant conference proceedings/journals.

Required Skills:
  • Applied background/coursework should include: Aerodynamics, Structures, Aeroelasticity, Flight Dynamics, Control, and Optimization. Previous related work experience is highly desired.
  • Experience using aerodynamic tools: vortex-lattice code (VORLAX/VSPAERO), Research CFD code such as CART3D, FUN3D or equivalent commercial CFD code (STARCCM+), finite element codes (NASTRAN), commercial CFD code.
  • A high proficiency in MATLAB is required.


Successful candidate must be:
  • A fast learner, quickly effective, and up to speed.
