Postdoctoral Research Associate
Professors Shahriar Afkhami and Wooyoung Choi
A postdoc position related to viscoelastic two-phase flows will be available at the New Jersey Institute of Technology Department of Mathematical Sciences. The research is funded by the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund and will involve developing accurate and robust numerical methods for viscoelastic flows and special computational algorithms capable of coupling the solution of the continuum equations to microscopic models.
The appointment is initially for one year. Teaching a course may be possible depending on individual interest and/or departmental budget.
– Develop numerical algorithms for two-phase viscoelastic flows and conduct fundamental research in the field.
– Validate the computational tool and apply it to physical processes.
– Publish the research results in peer-reviewed journals and present results at scientific conferences.
– Interact with team members and support the educational activities of the team.
– Perform other duties as assigned.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in related fields with strong research experiences in fluid dynamics and excellent communication skills. Candidates should have a demonstrated experience in code development for multiphase flows, including interface tracking methods on adaptive meshes, a good knowledge of parallel programming and high-performance computing, and proficiency in C and/or C++ languages and Linux operating systems.
Other desired experiences include knowledge of the volume-of-fluid and/or immersed boundary methods, parallel programming with CUDA, and machine learning CFD.
Special Instructions to Applicants:
Submit online (1) a cover letter, (2) a CV, and (3) a research statement. In addition, three reference letters are required. Reference letter writers should email their letters to firstname.lastname@example.org. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
