Postdoc position: High-fidelity modeling of spray formation and evaporation 

The Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering 
will support Dr. Yue (Stanley) Ling’s group in the study of high-fidelity 
modeling of spray formation and evaporation. This position's anticipated start 
date is June 2021. 

Sprays are widely encountered in energy, aerospace, and biomedical applications, 
such as liquid fuel injection in engines, pathogen spreading by respiratory 
droplets, among others. The formation and dispersion of spray droplets involve 
multiple complex physics, including interfacial instability, turbulence-
interface interaction, breakups, and phase change. Due to the wide range of 
spatial scales involved in these process, direct numerical simulations are too 
expensive for practical spray applications. A high-fidelity multi-scale modeling 
and simulation approach with rigorous sub-scale physical models is required for 
accurate prediction. 

This postdoc project aims at advancing the predictive simulation capability of 
spray formation and evaporation. The research activities will involve 1) direct 
numerical simulation (DNS) of canonical processes of liquid breakup, dispersion, 
and phase change, and 2) development of physics-based or data-driven sub-scale 
models based on a novel topological skeleton approach.

The candidate will have the opportunity to use and to develop the multiphase 
flow solver, Basilisk, for the planned simulations. The top-tier high-
performance computing facilities at Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) will 
be available for the project. The candidate will also interact with 
collaborative experiment groups in the same department. 

Ideal candidate for the position should have a Ph.D. degree in mechanical 
engineering, or related areas by Jun 2021. A solid background on fluid 
mechanics, thermodynamics, numerical methods, and computer programing is 
required. Experience in high-performance computing and multiphase flows will be 
appreciated. To apply please submit a detailed CV along with a list of 
publications, and contact information for two or more references, through the 
following link:

Review of applications will start immediately until the position is filled. 
Applications received by December 15 will receive full consideration.
