Senior CFD Simulation Engineer


Humlebæk, DK

Job Family:  Research & Development
Country/Region:  Denmark

Are you interested in using state of the art simulation tools to continuously improve the understanding of our products and improve their design? Will you strive to grow and develop our simulation team to be even more competent and inspiring place to work?


You are then offered a unique opportunity to develop simulations in Coloplast.


About the department
When joining Coloplast you will enter a global company that offers great challenges, opportunities, and rewards. The new Coloplast products are designed by Product Design & Engineering. Product Design & Engineering consists of a versatile group of ambitious people working in four departments: Design, Usability Engineering, Material Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. 
You will join the department of Mechanical Engineering, where you will team up with the Simulation team to provide development projects with guidance and recommendations.


The job
You will work closely with your colleagues in the Simulation team, Mechanical Design engineers, and key stakeholders within R&D in developing innovative products. You will focus on the fluid mechanics aspect of the development process and strengthen our understanding of fluid-structure interaction related to tissue and soft matter. In some cases, the Mechanical Design engineers will provide you with designs to assess and optimize, but in other cases, we build models proactively to leverage a fundamental understanding of products to relevant stakeholders. We take a practical approach to problem-solving, e.g., using simplified linear models to optimize and decision-making early design phase, while non-linear models and complex interactions with biological tissue come into play in detailed studies. In all our work, testing and improving predictions and methods are crucial. 

Communicating your findings in a simple and actionable way is vital to succeeding in the job. Our strategy for Product Design & Engineering strongly focuses on simulation, and we want to expand our capabilities to a higher level and use numerical analysis more actively in developing new products. We are not subject matter experts within CFD and you, as Senior CFD Simulation Engineer, will play a huge part in defining and implementing our strategy for the Simulation team in the coming years. 


Your key responsibilities are:

•    Provide key insight into fluid mechanics, e.g. through dimensional analysis of problem at hand.  

•    Conduct both simple and advanced CFD analysis as input to various development projects.

•    Present data-driven design recommendations to the development projects based on your analysis. 

•    Take part in the future development of the internal processes in the Simulations and Mechanical team.

•    Be a part of building our model and material library.

•    Coaching and supporting team members.


The ideal candidate for the job possesses the following qualifications:
•    Proven skills within simulations with 5-10+ years of experience.
•    Master of Science in Engineering or Natural Sciences with specialization in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Mathematical modelling, and numerical analysis of flow problems or similar.
•    Proven knowledge of CFD and preferably also the Finite Element Method (FEM), and a skilled user of one of the commonly used simulation software.
•    Proven knowledge of development processes.
•    Experience with interdisciplinary teamwork.
•    Experience with building simulation capabilities in an R&D organization. 


You most likely have a background in consultancy, food, medico, pharma, automotive, wind industries. We produce products in the millions and early attention to details has a great business impact. We value honesty and open feedback and are looking for an ambitious team player. If you are good at what you do, able to communicate your findings clearly and guide and inspire the Simulation team, this position will suit you.
