Closure DateFriday, August 13, 2021
Immediate Opening:  ONLY FOR APPLICANTS PHYSICALLY LOCATED IN THE USA: Ph.D. student/research assistant position in image-based Biomedical fluid dynamics 

The Image-based Biomedical fluid dynamics (IBFD) 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 2021. 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)	lattice Boltzmann method and its GPU parallelization 
(2)	programming languages (Matlab, C/C++, CUDA, etc.) 
(3)	experimental/theoretical/computational fluid mechanics

We are particularly interested in the candidates who have experiences with image-based computational and/or experimental hemodynamics.

Applications are accepted immediately ( Interested candidates should apply for admission to IUPUI and then email Prof. Yu at and provide via email the following documents for special consideration:
•	up-to-date CV
•	unofficial transcripts
•	unofficial English language test results
•	one-page cover letter stating your research interest, experience, skills, etc.
