JOB TITLE: Project Engineer
JOB LEVEL: Entry Level
LOCATION: Wimbledon, London, England

CHAM is seeking a Project Engineer for its CFD Applications Department at our Wimbledon office.

The Project Engineer’s main task will be to carry out, under supervision, assigned consultancy projects for a wide range of industries including environmental, marine, energy, HVAC and nuclear. This involves the setup, running and monitoring of CFD analyses; preparation of technical reports and provision of post-project technical customer support. Work will be done using PHOENICS, CHAM’s CFD software.

Project Engineers take responsibility for technical and financial aspects of assigned projects and will be encouraged to become actively involved in project initiation, product marketing and sales.

The successful applicant will also contribute to the development of new software components and applications for internal use and external sale. Such development will focus on enhancing current capabilities of PHOENICS and producing smaller, stand-alone, CFD programs.

The latter are intended to appeal to prospective users who do not require the full capabilities of PHOENICS but rather require easy-to-activate ways to solve practical problems. These ‘SimScene’ packages focus on particular equipment classes, such as shell-and-tube heat-exchangers or slurry pipelines; and are designed to be easily usable by equipment designers or operators.


  • BSc MSc or PhD in Mechanical, Aeronautical Engineering or related field.
  • Strong knowledge of Computational Fluid Dynamics, Fluid Mechanics, and Thermodynamics.


  • Some experience of combustion, fluid-structure interactions or multi-phase flow is a plus.
  • Good communication skills and the ability to work in a collaborative team environment.
  • Practical experience with Fortran, CAD software and MS office.

CHAM offers a competitive salary and benefits package to the successful applicant.

Applicants are invited to send a current CV and cover letter outlining unique qualifications for this position with the subject heading “Project Engineer Application – (Your Name)” before end of work on Monday May 16 2016.

CHAM accepts direct applications only and does not process submissions via Agencies.
