Closure DateTuesday, September 01, 2020
Laboratory of Turbulence, Sensing and Intelligence System of Mechanical Engineering is a part of NASA MIRO 
Center for Advanced Measurements in Extreme Environments (CAMEE) in the University of Texas at San 
Antonio. The Center focuses on increasing the research/education capacity at UTSA in areas related to NASA 
research priorities. The Center is a collaborative initiative between College of Sciences and College of 
Engineering at UTSA, with collaboration from University of California, Los Angeles, University of Colorado, 
Boulder, and NASA Laboratories (JPL, GSFC, and Langley) with interdisciplinary expertise in areas of remote 
sensing, hypersonic measurements, atmospheric and oceanic measurements and modelling, sea-ice and 
Immediate PostDoctoral positions are available in the NASA-CAMEE Center for highly motivated candidates in 
the areas of Turbulence simulations. The project deals with  LES simulations of buoyant plumes released in 
the atmosphere. The candidate should have excellent knowledge of programming in F90, C, C++, python.  
The project involves using Weather Research Forecast model coupled with LES to understand fundamental 
turbulence processes for buoyant plumes. The applications include wild-fire plume, volcano plumes, chemical 
plumes, oceanic plumes.  This is a very exciting project that builds on fundamental turbulence concepts and 
with diverse applications. The candidate can participate in US Army, NASA, NSF funded projects.  An ideal 
candidate should have good knowledge of Turbulence, excellent skills in CFD, good math background, 
analysis skills, have good writing skills. 

Responsibilities include: Conducting high caliber research in the area of Turbulence, writing journal 
publications, participating in proposal building activities with NASA-Center PI's, mentoring graduate students 
and few responsibilities involve outreach activities. The candidate should be able to team projects and also 
be comfortable working independently. 
Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering, Geosciences, Physics, Applied Math, Aerospace Engineering or 
related areas is preferred.
