Closure DateWednesday, July 22, 2020
This position is now closed. 07/22/2020 This position is open only to candidates who are currently physically located in the USA. Any applications from candidates physically located overseas (outside of the USA) will not receive a reply/response. Immediate Opening: Ph.D. student/research assistant position in image-based computational and experimental fluid dynamics for biomedical flow systems for applicants currently physically located in the USA The image-based computational and experimental fluid dynamics (ICEFD) group in the Department of Mechanical and Energy Engineering at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI) invites motivated applicants for Ph.D. studies in applied computational and experimental fluid dynamics for biomedical flow systems starting in Fall 2020. Full research assistantship including stipend, tuition, and health/dental benefits will be provided. Due to the advances in medical imaging, computational power, and mathematical algorithms, image-based computational and/or experimental fluid dynamics emerged for noninvasively computation of 4-D (space + time) hemodynamics based on imaging data in the heart and major blood vessels for patients with cardiovascular diseases. Such a new engineering methodology gives rise to a promising field of image-based diagnostics and therapeutics in a patient-specific environment. Data obtained from such means are not readily available from standard clinical measurements. It can offer key insights into disease progression and subsequent physiologic response, thus aiding in clinical decision-making for various cardiovascular diseases. Preferred qualifications include experiences in (1) experimental/theoretical/computational fluid mechanics (2) programming languages (Matlab, C/C++, etc.) (3) lattice Boltzmann method and its GPU parallelization We are particularly interested in the candidates who have experiences with image-based computational and/or experimental hemodynamics. Applications are accepted immediately. The Interested candidates should directly contact Prof. Whitney Yu at and attach the following documents: • up-to-date CV • unofficial transcripts • unofficial English language test results • list of three references including name, affiliation, email, and phone number • one-page cover letter stating your research interest, experience, skills, etc.
