Closure DateThursday, August 01, 2024
The Department of Mechanical Engineering in the Edward J. Whitacre College of 
Engineering at Texas Tech University (TTU) invites applications for a post-
doctoral research associate position beginning in summer 2024. The post-doc will 
work under the supervision of Dr. Song-Charng Kong on computational modeling of 
multiphase flows and engine combustion. The position is located at the TTU 
campus, Lubbock, TX. The research is funded by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory 
and the National Science Foundation. The specific topics and computational 
methods include, but are not limited to:

• Integrated simulation of spray dynamics, drop-wall interactions, and heat 
transfer and resulting thermal stress in mechanical components using the 
Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method
• Modeling of thermal sprays and additive manufacturing processes using the SPH 
• Advanced spray combustion modeling to explore novel engine concepts for UAV 
applications using engine CFD codes

Applicants must hold a doctoral degree in mechanical engineering, aerospace 
engineering, or a related field with a strong background in computational 
research. Successful applicants must demonstrate their scientific programming 
and coding ability rather than merely running commercial software packages.

For additional information, please contact Professor Song-Charng Kong, Chair of 
Mechanical Engineering (
