Post-doctoral Fellow
Evanston, IL
Northwestern University, Department of Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University is seeking candidates for a post-doctoral position to conduct research in the computational simulation of multiphase flows and flows with moving boundaries. The post-doctoral researcher will be working with Prof. Greg Wagner and his collaborators to develop new numerical formulations for the simulation of complex flows, implement them in a high-performance computing environment, and apply them to the modeling of engineering, environmental, and biological systems. Applications for which active collaborations are underway include transport in porous media, additive manufacturing processes, and fluid-structure interaction in the human heart. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn about these applications while working in an established software code base developed for large-scale parallel computing platforms.
• Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering or a closely related field, with a strong background in numerical simulation and fluid flow.
• Experience coding in C++ for distributed-memory parallel simulations
• Strong oral and written communication skills
• Knowledge of unstructured-mesh CFD formulations such as FEM, FVM, or CVFEM
• Familiarity with multi-phase flow simulation techniques such as level-set methods, volume of fluid, phase-field models, or Lagrangian particle tracking
• Experience with Python
• A demonstrated ability to work in cross-disciplinary teams that include both modelers and experimentalists
Interested applicants should send a copy of their current CV, along with a cover letter or email, and names and contact info of at least three references. All applications should be submitted via email in a single PDF document to:
