TitlePhD. in Numerical Modeling and Simulation for Wind Energy
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Calgary
LocationCanada, AB, Calgary
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, March 01, 2023
The Computational Fluid & Structural Mechanics group (CFSMgroup) at the University of Calgary has an open fully-
funded Ph.D. position in Numerical Modeling and Simulation for Wind Energy 

The project focuses on developing advanced numerical tools for wind farm modeling 
in complex environmental terrains and atmospheric flows. During this process, 
fundamental questions related to wake-structure interaction, wake mitigation 
strategies and wake control, effect of the atmospheric stability, will be 
explored. The application of the ROM and physics-informed NN will be also 
explored. Student will be working with the in-house code for multi-fidelity 
simulations of wind turbines.

The main responsibilities will be to:

- couple different modules of the code to perform simulation of the wind turbines 
in complex terrain interacting with stratified flows 
- verification and validation of the coupled code
- couple existing in-house code with weather models (e.g. WRF)
- perform simulation on HPC clusters
- pre- and post-processing of the results

The potential candidates should have:

- a strong background in numerical methods and fluid mechanics
- familiarity with Linux
- experience in developing numerical models, codes, and computation algorithms
- experience with CFD using FEM and/or FVM
- strong hands-on experience with computing in one of the programming languages 
(e.g. Fortran, C/C++, Python, or other languages)
- familiarity with at least one mesh generation tool (Gmsh, ANSA, Pointwise, or 
- strong interest and self-motivation to perform cutting-edge research and conquer 
challenges in real-world engineering and to publish high-impact papers. 

Experience with parallel computing (MPI, CUDA) is beneficial.

Position is available no later than September 2023 (the actual start date can be 
negotiated). Please send to Prof. Artem Korobenko (artem.korobenko[at]

- up-to-date CV
- unofficial transcripts
- unofficial English language test results (if applicable)
- one-page cover letter.  In your cover letter, please include projects you worked 
on and a short proposal (few paragraphs) for the potential research topic (around 
wind turbine modeling) that you would like to work on during your program at the 
University of Calgary.

Please ensure you submit all required documents. Only qualified candidates will be 
contacted for online-interview.
