As a Combustion Research Engineer, you will be a member of the Computational Combustion Lab, which is focused on the analysis of complex combustion physics to support the design of advanced combustion architectures. You will perform research and development for GE businesses including Aviation and Energy.
Work with teams that conceptualize, develop and evaluate low emissions combustion technologies for a wide range of GE products including aircraft engines, gas turbines, and reciprocating engines. Be responsible for the application and development of advanced time resolved combustion models to challenging combustion regimes. You will work closely with combustion experimentalists to improve GE's ability to predict emissions, dynamics, temperature profiles, and durability.
- Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or related disciplines OR Masters in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering or related disciplines with at least 2 years of relevant experience.
- Knowledge of combustion, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and combustion chemistry.
- Experience using engineering simulation/analysis tools (such as Fluent) to model combustion systems, or knowledge state-of-the art computational combustion modeling.
- Proficiency in meshing
- Ability to investigate, model and provide critical insight into complex physical phenomena.
- Candidate must be willing to travel to GE facilities in the US or Europe once per quarter.
- Legal authorization to work in the U.S. is required. We will not sponsor individuals at the Masters level for employment visas, now or in the future, for this job opening.
- Must be willing to work out of an office located in Niskayuna, NY
