Multiphase Flow Opportunities

Postdoc Research Associate at Iowa State University

Original Posting Date: August 31, 2021

A position for a postdoctoral research associate of the duration of one year, potentially extensible further, is available in the Center for Multiphase Flow Research and Education under the guidance of Profs. Rodney O. Fox and Alberto Passalacqua. The candidate’s research activity consists of modeling polydisperse gas-liquid systems in bubble columns and stirred tank reactors, with heat and mass transfer due to boiling or chemical reactions.

The candidate will work in a stimulating multidisciplinary environment that deeply values the open sharing of ideas and expertise to succeed in the research project.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in Mechanical or Chemical Engineering, with a focus on computational fluid dynamics.
  • A strong background in multiphase fluid dynamics. Specifically, the candidate must know the theory of multiphase flow modeling with Euler-Euler models and have experience with their application to the simulation of devices of industrial relevance.
  • A demonstrated ability to implement complex computational models using the OpenFOAM®  CFD toolkit and C++.  See Application Link Below for More Details.
