Opening for PhD position
Numerical modeling of dispersed turbulent flows
Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – National Research Institute,
About the project
In the framework of Chinese-Polish collaboration in the fundamental research, supported by the National Science Centre (NCN, Poland), the present project SHENG is focused on the development of computational methods and detailed analysis of turbulent flows containing small water droplets. The problem is of major relevance in meteorology for cloud microphysics and the warm rain formation. It is also of general interest in various industrial applications. They are at the crossroads between academic research and practical concerns (e.g. droplet coalescence/breakup in sprays or short-time relative particle dispersion). For a popular description see: https://ncn.gov.pl/konkursy/wyniki/2019-04-26-sheng1?language=en the button "Funding scheme", choose "SHENG-ST", Position No.7.
The main aim of the project is further development of the numerical model for direct numerical simulation (DNS) by implementing a special module for representing aerodynamic interactions between particles. This massively parallel MPI code will be used to study statistics, structure, dynamics of small-scale turbulence and dynamics of suspended inertial particles.
We offer a PhD position
- in the Department for Numerical Weather Forecasts COSMO, IMGW-PIB Warsaw, Poland (www.imgw.pl/en/).
A full time (40 h/week) position funded with a PhD scholarship is offered for 3 years and amounts to 4500 zł/month (nett, not taxable). The PhD candidate will be based at the IMGW-PIB; short visits at the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery in Gdańsk, are to be foreseen. The candidate will have an opportunity to take part in national and international conferences to present his/her research findings, also, when justified, to participate in summer schools, workshops. A research stay (a few weeks) at the Shenzhen University, China, the project partner, is foreseen as well.
We are looking for a motivated candidate with intellectual curiosity, willing to work in the research environment against tight deadlines, ready learn and gain new experience. Specific requirements:
Submission of applications will be possible through July 15, 2019.
The applications should include a cover letter, CV, photo, all transcripts, diplomas, list of publications (if any), and contact information for two reference persons. As the motivation for fundamental scientific research of practical relevance is essential, applicants are required to point out in their cover letter how the project will build upon their previous education, research and competence.
In the evaluation of which candidate is best qualified, emphasis will be placed on education, experience and personal suitability, as well as motivation, in terms of the qualification requirements specified in the advertisement.
Please submit your application by regular mail to: IMGW-PIB, Podleśna 61, 01-673 Warsaw, Poland or by e-mail to email@example.com with the annotation / subject line: “PhD application: Sheng”.
If needed, selected Candidates may be invited for an interview (in person or via videoconference on Internet).
