The Mechanical Engineering Department at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology seeks applications for a full-time Post-Doctoral Fellow in computational fluid dynamics. Responsibilities will include developing simulations of fluid flow through porous media using commercial software or open source software. In addition, the position requires preparation of peer-reviewed publications and research proposals, as well as advising undergraduate student researchers. Teaching undergraduate courses in fluid mechanics may be negotiated. The successful candidate must be proficient with commercial CFD software and/or open source software, and should have substantive experience in developing fluid flow models using C/C++, Fortran and/or Matlab. In addition, the candidate must possess excellent oral and written communication skills. Preference will be given to candidates that have experience in modeling flow through porous media, modeling turbulent flow, and modeling natural atmospheric flows. Experience with Agent Based Modeling is beneficial, but not required. Experience in modeling atmospheric phenomena or biological systems will be considered a bonus.


Candidates must have completed an earned PhD in Mechanical Engineering or a related field prior to the start of employment. Employment renewal for this position depends on availability of research funding and performance.
