*Perform accurate analysis of product performance, making appropriate recommendations as needed to improve product performance and reliability.
*Participate as a member of a project team to ensure projects are completed according to schedule.
*Provide technical direction and guidance to technicians, drafters, model makers, engineers, and programmers as needed.
What we look for
*Bachelors degree in mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering, or a related field with an emphasis on thermal sciences in general and fluid dynamics specifically.
*Knowledge of fundamentals of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experience with commercial CFD software for analyzing gas flow through or around complex geometries.
*Minimum of 3 years of professional experience in research or product development in the HVAC industry. (Directly-related PhD research may be considered toward professional experience.)
*Understanding of the fundamental thermodynamics of vapor-compression refrigeration systems and natural gas combustion processes is highly desirable.
*Candidate must be well organized and capable of managing numerous competing priorities.
*Excellent people skills with ability to develop and maintain professional relationships across a matrix-oriented, multi-cultural organization.
*Strong oral and written English language skills.
*Ability to travel 10%.
