Research in Turbulent Flows

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Memphis in the area of computational fluid dynamics and materials science with applications to cavitation and multi-phase flows.

Postdoc – CFD

Postdoc – Materials

PhD Students

We are currently looking for new highly qualified Ph.D. students to lead computational efforts in on-going research in turbulent flows.  A successful candidate will be part of an inter-disciplinary group that includes three Ph.D.  and an undergraduate student and will have the opportunity to collaborate with other faculty and students at the University of Memphis.   The focus of the research is on turbulent features in atmospheric boundary layers and data assimilation from ARM site observations.  The position is computational in nature and the candidate is expected to have significant computational and programming experience, ideally in C and Python languages, and ability to work on large research codes.  Experience with MPI is desirable.

The position is fully funded with stipend, tuition, and benefits.  The student will work at the forefront of the cutting-edge turbulence and CFD research.  There will be opportunity to collaborate with researchers at DOE national laboratories, publish in top-tier journal papers, and attend international professional conferences hosted by the American Physical Society, among others.

Interested applicants should send a CV with a cover letter, names of at least three references, and a summary of recent work and interests as a single PDF to Dr. Daniel Foti, dvfoti@memphis.edu.
