The computational fluid dynamics lab in the Mechanical Eng. Department at the University of North Texas (UNT) has several openings in Fall 2022 for Ph.D. students to conduct research on various topics including turbulent two-phase free-surface flows, biofluids, FSI based on immersed boundary methods, bubble dynamics, active flow control mechanisms, stochastic modeling and uncertainty quantification (UQ), and high-performance computing methodology. The modeling and code development are for ocean engineering applications (ship hydrodynamics, ocean wave/winds, internal waves etc.), aerospace engineering ( flight dynamics and control, aeroacoustic), biomedical applications (heart flow, hemodynamics, etc.), and energy systems (onshore and offshore wind turbines, wave energy converter etc.)

Candidate must have excellent algorithm development skills and experience related to developing CFD software packages using Fortran/C/C++ and script programming languages. Strong skills and experience in high-performance computing using MPI/OpenMP and post-processing software development tools are desired. Experience with open-sources CFD solvers such as OpenFoam is desired.
Interested applicants should email their CV to Dr. Sadat (email@example.com), the director of the CFD lab . CV must provide 1) contact information, 2) undergraduate and graduate education history and the GPA for each , 3) research and work experiences relevant to CFD code development, 4) detailed scores of GRE and TOEFL or other English proficiency tests for international students (https://admissions.unt.edu/international/english-language-requirements) or dates those will be taken, 5) software skills including the level of proficiency in OpenFoam, Tecplot, and Pointwise, 6) list of publications, and 7) list of references
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Sadat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
