Posting #109 Position Overview
Organization Name SCOREC, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Job Title

Post Doctoral Research Associate


Troy, NY

Description The Scientific Computation Research Center ( at Rensselaer is seeking highly qualified post-doctoral research associates to develop and apply automated and adaptive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) methods for multiple application areas, specifically in the areas of turbulent flows, multiphase flows, and fluid-structure interaction.

The successful candidates will develop and implement automated computational methods, including stabilized finite element methods for fluids, complex multiphase flow models, advanced subgrid-scale models and dynamic procedures, and non-linear structural models for analysis on massively parallel computers. The successful candidates must be able to interact with faculty and students at Rensselaer in order to develop tools for attacking complex applications of interest. The successful candidates will also be required to interact with sponsors (including industry).
* PhD in Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautical/Aerospace Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer/Computational Science, or related engineering or science discipline
* Expertise in stabilized finite element methods/ computational fluid dynamics/ turbulent flow/ multiphase flow / fluid-structure interaction
* Experience in parallel programming and high performance computing
* Good knowledge of FORTRAN, C and/or C++ programming languages and UNIX operating system is required
* Knowledge of modern software engineering tools (such as subversion, redmine, etc.) will be considered favorably
Application Procedure




Interested applicants should send a copy of their latest CV with a cover letter or email, names of at least three references, and a summary of recent work. All applications should be submitted electronically (paperless process) via one (all combined) PDF document to:
