LocationCanada, Alberta, Edmonton
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSaturday, December 01, 2018
We are seeking outstanding candidates to undertake cutting-edge research on 
computational sustainability and environmental analytics. This is an 
excellent opportunity for enthusiastic and ambitious researchers to use 
state-of-the-art approaches to make an impact in a fast-moving field of 

The postdoctoral fellow will be a member of the CAIP Research Chair team at 
Athabasca University, Alberta, Canada. The objective of the CAIP program is 
to use a multidisciplinary and multi-scale analysis by integrating modeling 
of biogeochemical and hydrological processes. The fellow will develop a 
model of integrated lattice Boltzmann model (LBM) for modelling organic 
matter biodegradation or oil extraction and biofilm growth in porous media. 


• A PhD in mathematics, physics, engineering, or other closely related 
• Experience in lattice Boltzmann model or computational fluid dynamics.
• Experience in individual-Based model or molecular dynamic simulations.
• Strong skills and experience with programing languages (C, C++, or 
Fortran) and coding and ability to design concept of model, algorithms and 
• Excellent record of peer-reviewed scientific publication
• Ability to work independently, self-motivated  and to efficiently deliver 
results on time
• Ability and desire to work in a closely cooperating interdisciplinary team
• A plus in experience of parallel computation.  
The ideal candidate will have a strong background in both modeling and
