Offer Description

A post-doctoral position in Computational Fluid Dynamics is available at the University of Louvain (UCLouvain) in Belgium. The topic concerns turbulent convection of liquids in open-top domains (i.e. with a free surface on top) and has many interesting applications in the industry and the environment. The specific objectives of the project are the following.

1)      Development of models for Large Eddy Simulations.

2)      Numerical Simulations at high turbulence intensities (high Rayleigh numbers) via high-performance computing.

3)      Calculation of liquid evaporation across the free surface for a variety of configurations.

The simulations will be performed with an in-house parallel code, written in C/C++. The initial duration of the appointment is for 12 months, renewable twice for a period of 12 months each. Therefore, the overall duration can be up to 33 months. The postdoctoral fellow will join the Multi-phase and Reacting Flows group of the University of Louvain. Information about our group's activities is available on our website, https://sites.google.com/site/mvpapalexandris/

Interested applicants are invited to submit:

- detailed CV,

- a statement of research interests, and

- names of 2 references

to Prof. M. Papalexandris, miltiadis.papalexandris@uclouvain.be
