Your role

DHI supports clients internationally with a wide range of projects from large infrastructure projects for international clients to minor projects for local clients.

You will be joining the team as a Senior Engineer and your main focus area will be on numerical modelling, e.g. OpenFOAM or DHI’s own MIKE software.

The work consists of technical support during the design process by numerical modelling in e.g. OpenFOAM, MIKE3 Wave FM and MIKE MA. Therefore an important part will be working with coupling models, say MIKE3 Wave FM combined with OpenFOAM.

It is expected that you can support the clients solving their challenges based on numerical modelling with verification and/or design optimizations and engage actively in discussions with the clients enabling them to gain trust in their design.

Finally, you should help drive the business development by promoting DHI services within numerical modelling to existing and new client. It is preferred that you have experience in this.
