Flow Science is a small, diverse software company with a global presence and a distinguished history. Originally an offshoot from Los Alamos National Lab, the company is now based in Santa Fe. We are offering an internship opportunity to both identify future hires and to create opportunities for area students to know there is a place for them in New Mexico. Our suite of products, under the trade name FLOW-3D, is computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software used by engineers, designers, and scientists at top manufacturers and institutions throughout the world to simulate and optimize design in applications ranging from metal casting to civil engineering hydraulics.

FLOW-3D specializes in transient, free-surface flows and is recognized as the premier tool for full 3D free surface modeling in applications related to the water & environmental industry. Common areas of application include the design of dam spillways, river hydraulics, fish passages, wastewater treatment, and sedimentation/scour evaluations. We have a large global user base that includes governmental agencies, private consultants, and academic research institutions.

Intern will focus on: Water & Environmental applications

Ideal Candidate: Recent or imminent Masters degree in Civil Engineering with hydraulics/water civil infrastructure emphasis, physical oceanography, maritime or coastal engineering. Strong understanding of fluid mechanics and open channel flow principles is required. Prior hydraulic modeling experience using 1D, 2D, or 3D/CFD methods strongly preferred. Strong 3D CAD skills and GIS skills also highly desired. Candidates should have exceptional oral and written communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills. The candidate should have the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

Principal tasks and responsibilities:
Validations: Indentify appropriate experimental or analytical results against which to test FLOW-3D for specific application areas. Develop and document validations comparing FLOW-3D to the experimental or analytical results.
Support: Assist Flow Sciences staff in providing timely and complete responses to requests for technical support from FLOW-3D customers and associates.
Training: Attend training classes for FLOW-3D users.

Interns will contribute and learn by:
Developing advanced CFD modeling skills with the CFD tool FLOW-3D
Developing an understanding of the available physics modules available to FLOW-3D users
Developing an in-depth understanding of CFD methods applied to industry-relevant problems
Developing an in-depth understanding of the physics and processes associated with industry-relevant problems
Developing a broad overview of key market segments relevant to free surface CFD applications
Interacting on a daily basis with the solver, GUI, sales and marketing teams at Flow Science
Having an opportunity to fine tune their presentation skills, through internal presentations of their work as well as possibly live presentations to potential prospects
