LocationUnited States, Texas, San Antonio
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateThursday, August 01, 2024

The Computational Turbulence and Visualization Lab (CTV Lab) at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has immediate three (3) openings for Post-Doctoral Research Associates.

Two positions (code: DNS) are sought in the area of numerical predictions of turbulent high-speed boundary layer problems in supersonic/hypersonic flow regime and complex geometries. The employed numerical approach will be mostly Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS); however, Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) is also available in the in-house flow solver. We are looking for highly motivated candidates with strong HPC skills (MPI Fortran 90/95, C, C++, CUDA Python), turbulent boundary layer theory, Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS), and user experience on CPU and GPU supercomputers and clusters. Evidence of productive academic and publication records, excellent verbal and written English skills, the ability to work both independently and as part of a group of researchers with diverse academic backgrounds are mandatory. Current and funded projects in the research group involve wall-curvature effects on high-speed flows, boundary layer detachment due to streamwise and streamline pressure gradient and high-speed crossflow jets.

The third position (code: Scientific Visualization) involves research in virtual/augmented reality with applications to computational fluid dynamics. Candidates should possess knowledge and experience on mixed reality tools (HTC Vice, Varjo XR-3, Oculus Rift, Microsoft HoloLens, etc.) as well as programming via Unity Game engine (required), Python, C++ and C#.

Required qualifications: applicants must have a Ph.D. in Aerospace, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science or a related field, to be awarded prior to starting the position. The candidates should have a strong background in the following areas: finite element/volume analysis, turbulence statistics, coherent structures, scientific visualization, and programming. Furthermore, oral communication and written skills are essential as part of the dissemination purposes (publication and oral presentations).

To apply for this position, please ATTACH (i) a 1-page cover letter stating your research interests and career goals, (ii) a detailed CV, and (iii) contact information for three references and email to Prof. Guillermo Araya at quoting the position code.
