TitlePost Doc Position in High Performance Computing
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerColorado School of Mines
LocationUnited States, Colorado, Golden/Denver
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, September 01, 2021
Dr. Nils Tilton in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) is seeking 
a post-doctoral researcher for a project focused on simulating heat and mass transport in reverse osmosis 
(RO) and membrane distillation systems (MD).  RO and MD are desalination processes with important 
applications to the global water-energy-climate nexus. They also have complicated hydrodynamic 
instabilities, geometries, and mass transport phenomena that go to the core of theoretical and computational 
fluid mechanics. This is an excellent field for a junior researcher looking to work hard and position themselves 
for a successful academic or industrial career. 

The project is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and focuses on continuing the development and 
application of in-house codes using finite-volume methods and immersed boundary methods. The Post Doc 
would lead efforts to parallelize these codes on a shared computer cluster. Consequently, the ideal candidate 
would be experienced in High Performance Computing using MPI with either Fortran or C. Additional 
experience in CFD and finite volume methods is helpful, but we can also train the Post Doc in those methods. 
The researcher would also write articles, collaborate in grant applications, and supervising a graduate 
student. They would also collaborate with experimental partners at UCLA and CSM’s AQWATEC center 

The position is open immediately, but a position start date as late as September 1, 2021 can be negotiated, 
based on the candidate’s experience and timeline.  The position is for 12 months with a 12-month salary of 
$60,000. Interested parties should send an email to Dr. Nils Tilton (  Please include a brief 
cover letter expressing your interest and qualifications, as well as a CV/resume. We are open to the candidate 
working remotely, though this would still require a US workers VISA for international applicants.
