LocationGermany, Magdeburg
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, February 15, 2023

At the Chair of Mechanical Process Engineering ( we are a group of enthusiastic researchers with intensive research activities in the numerical modelling of multiphase flows, including interfacial and particle-laden flows. . As part of our research on particle-laden flows, we study the complex behaviour of dispersed particles in incompressible and compressible turbulent flows, particle-turbulence interactions, the influence of particle shape as well as applications featuring particle-laden flows.

The objective of the advertised position is to develop novel computational models to describe dense particle-laden flows. This will include conducting systematic numerical studies with our in-house CFD code using direct numerical simulation (DNS) of flows with particles, as well as the development of a new model to describe the interactions of the particles with the fluid flow. The new model will then be used to describe the interaction of a flow with particles at large scales.

Your primary responsibilities:

  • Design, execution and analysis of analytical and numerical studies of the behaviour of particles in fluid flows

  • Derivation, implementation and analysis of models to predict the behaviour of many particles in flows

  • Participation in the development of our in-house simulation tools in C and with MPI

Requirements for the position:

  • MSc degree or equivalent  and PhD degree in mechanical engineering, process engineering, aeronautical engineering, applied mathematics, physics or a related discipline

  • Proven track record in working with physical problems and numerical methods

  • Experience in computational fluid dynamics, especially of direct numerical simulations and/or large eddy simulations, is highly desirable

  • Fluent command of written and spoken English is required

Applications are to be done online: (
