Job Record #17346
TitlePhD position in Computational Fluid Dynamics
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerUniversity of Nottingham Malaysia
LocationMalaysia, Selangor, Semenyih
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, January 31, 2022
We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic Ph.D. student to develop a 
novel Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method based on “mesh-less” 
technology for simulating Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) problem in 
engineering applications. The ultimate goal is to apply the method for 
simulating challenging yet interesting FSI problems such as those 
encountered in flood mitigation, biological flow environment, etc.

The candidate is expected to develop a fluid-solid coupling algorithm and 
embed that in the in-house CFD code written in C++. The core numerical 
method of this code is Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). Upon embedding 
the coupling algorithm into the existing in-house code, the new code will 
then be executed on a parallel computing platform (GPU) so that large scale 
FSI problems in flood mitigation, biological system etc. can be studied.

Job Requirements:
•	A degree in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, or any other 
relevant field with good academic record, especially in numerical method, 
fluid & solid mechanics and programming-related modules. 

•	Past experience in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and/or 
Computational Solid Mechanics (CSM) such as Finite Element Method, etc. 

•	Interested in programming (C/C++).

•	Willing to explore new research directions.

•	Past experience in Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is highly 

Job location:
University of Nottingham (Malaysia campus)

Financial support:
Financial support will be provided: Month stipend (RM 2500/month for 3 
years) and tuition waiver. 

Candidates interested are encouraged to contact Assoc. Prof. Ir. Dr. Ng
