Ph.D. Positions in Computational Modeling of Plasma Physics and Gas Dynamics

About this position:

The Computational Gas Dynamics and Plasma Physics Lab in the Department of 
Mechanical Engineering ( at the 
University of North Dakota is looking for applications for funded Ph.D. positions 
with a start date of Fall 2024/Spring2025. Current research includes numerical 
modeling of high temperature plasma physics in fusion applications, low 
temperature plasma physics in space applications, and high temperature gas 
dynamics in aerospace applications. The successful candidate will carry out 
computational research in the above mentioned areas using both continuum and 
kinetic theory methods coupled with high performance computing. They will have the 
opportunity to participate in existing and be encouraged to pursue new 
collaborative research.


The ideal candidate should have earned a B.S. and M.S. degree in Aerospace 
Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Materials Engineering, 
Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, or a closely related field.

Preferred qualifications include:

•  Strong background in fluid dynamics or plasma physics
•  Strong background in computational science and engineering, including 
computational fluid dynamics, statistics, and numerical methods.
•  Strong programming ability in C++, Python, or other object-oriented programming 
•  Experience developing numerical methods and computer code.
•  Experience with high performance computing.

To Apply: Please email Dr. Chonglin Zhang at with the
