TitlePostdoc in Simulations of Turbulence & Data Assimilation
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerJohns Hopkins University
LocationUnited States, Maryland, Baltimore
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, July 31, 2024
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is seeking applicants for a 
post-doctoral fellowship in direct numerical simulations of turbulent boundary layers and the assimilation of 
physical measurements in the computations.  Applicants with strong background in the following areas are 
encouraged to apply: 
-  Direct or large-eddy simulations of turbulent flows;
-  Turbulence physics and vorticity dynamics;
-  Analysis of big data from turbulence simulations;
-  Data assimilation and nonlinear optimization;
-  High-performance computing. 

The researcher will work collaboratively with members of the Flow Science & Engineering Group 
(, led by Prof. Tamer Zaki.   The experimental measurements will be provided by the 
team of Prof. Joseph Katz, also at JHU.   The applicant must have demonstrated expertise in one of the 
relevant areas, specifically high-fidelity simulations, turbulence physics, data assimilation, high-performance 
computational methods, or data science.  Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in Engineering, Physics, 
Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, or a related field.  Interested applicants should send their CV with a 
cover letter and names of at least three references to  Application material should be 
submitted as a single PDF document.

1. Ph.D. in Engineering, Physics, Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, or related 
engineering or science discipline 
2. Prior experience and contributions in computational fluid dynamics, numerical methods, data assimilation, 
and scientific computing.

Interested applicants should send a CV with a cover letter, names of at least three references, and a summary 
of recent work and interests. All applications should be submitted electronically as a single PDF document to:
Prof. Tamer Zaki
