Closure DateThursday, August 15, 2024

The Iowa State University’s Computational Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics Laboratory (ISU CAAL) is seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join a research project investigating aerodynamically generated ultrasound.

Project Description:

Using a combined computational and experimental approach, this exciting project will explore aerodynamic whistles to generate ultrasound for bat deterrence in wind farms. The successful candidate will develop and utilize advanced computational aeroacoustics (CAA) simulations to predict noise generation while designing and conducting wind tunnel experiments for validation.

Desired Qualifications:

  • A strong background in Aerospace/Mechanical Engineering or a related field.
  • An MS (or equivalent) focusing on aeroacoustics or computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Exceptional candidates straight after a B.S. degree will also be considered.
  • Proven experience in performing CAA simulations using established software packages (e.g., OpenFOAM,  StarCCM+).
  • Proficiency in scripting languages such as Python for data analysis and post-processing.
  • Experience with experimental techniques in aeroacoustics, including anechoic chamber and wind tunnel testing and data acquisition.
  • Familiarity with CAD software and experience in rapid prototyping of test models.
  • Excellent communication, writing, and presentation skills.
  • A strong work ethic,  self-motivation, and the ability to work independently and collaborate with people nationally and internationally.

The Offer:

  • A fully funded PhD studentship with a competitive stipend and tuition fees covered.
  • The opportunity to work on a cutting-edge research project with the potential for high-impact publications.
  • Access to state-of- the-art computational resources and advanced wind tunnel facilities.
  • Training and development opportunities to enhance your research skills and career prospects.

To Apply:

Please submit a detailed CV with list of references and transcripts from your previous degrees.

Closing Date:  Aug 15, 2024

Applications should be submitted to

We are committed to diversity and inclusion and welcome applications from all qualified candidates.

Iowa State University is an equal opportunity employer.
