(URV) ( in Tarragona (Spain), is looking for an enthusiastic 
research student with a strong interest in fluid dynamics and fluid-structure 
interaction. Successful candidates will join a small but very active 
multidisciplinary team, working in several fluid-structure interaction (FSI) 
problems. The research will be mainly experimental and focused FSI with 
application to several engineering problems. The main topic that will be 
considered during the research include but are not limited to “energy harvesting 
systems using cross-flow turbines or other novel concepts”.
The research will be carried out at the LIFE group facilities, including wind 
tunnels, a towing tank and a large free surface water channel. There is also the 
possibility to use and develop CFD and FEM prediction tools. 
Applicants will enroll in the Inter-University PhD Programme in Fluid Mechanics
