Jobs in Research

Alongside permanent researchers and research engineers at CERFACS, who, according to their fields of competence, contribute to research, training and to the framework for students, we welcome at CERFACS, the following position profiles :

Young researchers in training via Research :

Young PhD researchers (PhD) : CERFACS welcomes young students holding a Master 2 or the equivalent. They will be trained so as to prepare their PhD within a research team at CERFACS. Duration : 3 years.

Young Post-doctoral researchers (Post-doc) : CERFACS also welcomes young researchers holding a PhD who wish to conduct their research after the completion of their doctoral studies. Duration : between 12 and 24 months.

Research Engineers : for young students who have just graduated (+5 years after their A levels). They will be in charge of a specific and one-time job related to a particular contract or project. Duration : depending on the project.

Trainees : This category applies for students in Master 1 or 2 or from an engineering school who do a training in research within their studies. A training agreement must be signed between CERFACS and their school. Duration : up to 6 months

First 360-degrees Large-Eddy Simulation of a full engine

Jérôme DOMBARD |  17 June 2020

Within the PRACE project FULLEST (First fUlL engine computation with Large Eddy SimulaTion), a joint collaboration between CERFACS, SAFRAN and AKIRA technologies, Dr. C. Pérez Arroyo (post doctoral fellow at CERFACS) has carried out under the supervision of Dr. J. Dombard the first high-fidelity simulation of a part of the real engine DGEN380 (for now, from the fan to the combustion chamber). This 360-degrees integrated large-eddy simulation contains around two billion cells on the three instances, carried out with the AVBP code of CERFACS.  The CPU cost is obviously large but still within reach, performing around one turn of fan during 5 days over 14400 skylake cores. Post-treatments are in progress and already show, among other complex phenomena, a strong interaction between the high pressure compressor and the combustion chamber (see forthcoming paper GT2020-16288 C. Pérez Arroyo et al). Below a video showing: in the fan an isosurface at mid-height of the vein colored by the Mach number, in the high pressure compressor a gradient of density, in the bypass of the combustion chamber the static pressure and in the flame tube a temperature field. One of the goals of the project is to create a high-fidelity unsteady database to study interactions between modules and may help other teams to develop new lower order models and/or validate existing ones. Beyond the feasibility and the maturity of the AVBP code, this kind of calculation is an important milestone for the aeronautical industry and would allow to apprehend earlier in the design the effect of integration and installation and thus, to reduce the cycle and therefore the cost of the future aircraft engines. PRACE and GENCI CPU ressources and Safran Tech/DGAC fundings are gratefully acknowledged, along with the invaluable technical support at CERFACS: Dr. G. Staffelbach, Dr. F. Duchaine, Dr. L. Gicquel, Dr....Read more
