TitleCFD/Plasma Dynamics Postdoctoral Scholar
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerOden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences
LocationUnited States, Texas, Austin
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateTuesday, September 01, 2020
The Center for Predictive Engineering and Computational Sciences in
the Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences at the
University of Texas at Austin is searching for Postdoctoral Scholars
in computational fluid and plasma dynamics to join a large research
project to develop high fidelity predictive simulation models of
inductively coupled plasma (ICP) torches. An ICP torch presents a
multi-physics modeling challenge which will require coupled solution
of the compressible Navier-Stokes, Maxwell, Boltzmann and radiative
transport equations. This postdoc will contribute to the development
of models and algorithms for ICP torch simulation and their
implementation in a finite-element-based software infrastructure. They
will also participate in the verification and validation of the torch
simulator, and will be part of an interdisciplinary team working at
the forefront of many areas of physics, computational science, and
computer science.

Knowledge of finite element and/or spectral methods and prior software
experience in large-scale parallel code development, including MPI,
C++, multi-threading, and git revision control are required.
Applicants must have a Doctorate in Science, Engineering, Computer
Science, Computational Science, Applied Mathematics, or a related
technical field.  Candidates with experience in simulation of fluid
mechanics and/or plasma physics are preferred.
