Job description

This PhD project is part of the ERC Consolidator Grant project WINDFLOW, which strives to develop groundbreaking large-eddy simulation strategies for wind farm flows. Your research will develop a fundamental understanding of wind farms' large-scale impact on moisture transport, atmospheric stability, cloud dynamics, turbulent transport within the atmosphere, and the interactions between wind farms. This project represents an opportunity for us to advance our collective knowledge of fluid and atmospheric dynamics relevant to wind energy. Join us in pushing the boundaries of wind energy fluid mechanics research!

Your profile

We are seeking applications from motivated early-career researchers with a strong background in fluid dynamics, mechanical engineering, computational physics, applied physics, mathematics, geophysics, or related subject areas. Experience with programming languages such as Fortran, C/C++, MATLAB, or Python is advantageous. Candidates should thrive in an international environment and have excellent communication skills to actively contribute to team research efforts. You will present your work at international conferences. Proficiency in spoken and written English is essential. We value independence and responsibility while promoting teamwork and collaboration among colleagues.

Our offer

This position is integral to the ERC WINDFLOW project and offers integration into a dynamic research group with peers exploring similar themes.

  • A full-time position for four years, with a qualifier in the first year.
  • Salary and associated conditions are in accordance with the collective labor agreement for Dutch universities (CAO-NU).
  • Access to novel research facilities, including top-tier supercomputers.
  • Professional and personal development program within Graduate School Twente.
  • Excellent mentorship and a stimulating international research environment.
  • The monthly salary is € 2.770 in the first year, increasing yearly to € 3.539 in the fourth year.
  • There are excellent benefits, including a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary, an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%, and a solid pension scheme.
