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 a Postdoctoral Scholar
with a background in plasma modeling to contribute to the development,
calibration and validation of models to be used in high fidelity
simulation of inductively coupled plasma (ICP) torches.  An ICP torch
presents a multi-physics modeling challenge, requiring representations
of electromagnetics, compressible flow, weakly-ionized plasma kinetics
and thermal radiation.  This postdoc will help develop, implement, and
validate a suite of models of varying fidelity to represent the plasma
kinetics processes critical to the performance of a plasma torch.  The
effort will involve the development and implementation of physical
models based on both a fluid representation and the Boltzmann
equation.  Further, the postdoc will contribute to uncertainty
quantification and model validation, participating in both uncertainty
modeling and propagation, and measurement campaigns in both the ICP
torch and a glow discharge facility.  These activities will be pursued
as part of an interdisciplinary team working at the forefront of many
areas of physics, computational science, and computer science.

Applicants must have a Doctorate in Science, Engineering, Computer
Science, Computational Science, Applied Mathematics, or a related
technical field, and a strong background in plasma modeling and
simulation.  Experience with uncertainty quantification in
computational models is preferred.
