Position Summary:

FAU's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow Turbulence Flow Modelling, Fort Pierce, FL.

With over 30,000 students from all 50 states and over 180 countries, 21 intercollegiate teams, 180 plus degree programs, and an administration that thrives on discovery and excellence, FAU is pushing the boundaries of higher education. Florida Atlantic's faculty and staff are trailblazers and innovators with a passion for finding creative solutions while advancing science, art, and technology in all disciplines. Our work environment is a hub of cultures from across the nation and the world, making FAU a place where collaboration flourishes.

The Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) at the Florida Atlantic University has an opening for a full-time postdoctoral researcher in the area of large-scale simulations of incompressible turbulent flows. The Postdoctoral Fellow will conduct Large Eddy Simulations (LES) and RANS simulations to understand the fundamental role of turbulent fluctuations in exciting bioluminescence from swimming animals and propelled vehicles in the ocean. They will collaborate closely with an experimental team at HBOI for comparing and validating simulation results against experimental data obtained in the lab and in the field; and will have the opportunity to disseminate new modeling ideas and application results in technical journals and presentations at fluids related conferences and workshops. The position is for two years, with a third year contingent on additional funding.

Minimum Qualifications:

Ph.D. from an accredited institution in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering, Physics, Oceanography, or a closely related field. Graduate students close to defending their dissertation and/or current postdocs looking for a new opportunity are both encouraged to apply. Degree must be completed by time of appointment.
Knowledge of basic turbulence theory.
Experience with turbulence modelling – RANS and/or LES.
Working knowledge of space-/time-discretization schemes, iterative solvers.
Experience with OpenFOAM or equivalent simulation software.
Working knowledge of C++ and software build systems, large-scale parallel computing using MPI and/or OpenMP.
Candidates who demonstrate experience with conceptualization and execution of turbulence experiments preferred. This may include a background in flow visualization/characterization, including but not limited to, methods such as PIV, holography, hot wire anemometry, etc.

Salary:

$50,000 - $55,000

College or Department:

HBOI

Location:

Harbor Branch (HBOI)
