The successful candidate(s) will bring their experience and expertise of physics, simulations and computational methods to the numerical tools underpinning First Light’s approach. We are looking for someone with a deep understanding of numerical methods and multi-physics approaches, who will be able to use that knowledge to solve previously unseen challenges. We would be particularly interested to hear from candidates with experience of interface tracking methods applied to multiphase flows.
Our primary numerical physics capability is an adaptive front-tracking hydro-code, with coupled conduction, radiation and microphysics models. The code is core to the business plan and a very important company asset. The successful candidate(s) will contribute to the development of this code, as well as adding further physics such as MHD. It is also expected that you will work closely with the in-house experimental team to provide simulation support and perform code validation.
The team takes an agile approach using the Atlassian toolset.
