InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
The computational thermal fluids lab, led by Dr. Xinyu Zhao, at University of Connecticut, 
Storrs CT, USA, is seeking outstanding candidates to fill 2 post-doc positions, starting 

The research will involve direct numerical simulations and large-eddy simulations of turbulent 
combustion systems with focus on chemistry and turbulence interactions. The prospective 
postdoctoral research fellow has the flexibility to work on one or more of the following topics:
DNS of highly turbulent premixed flames, LES/Probability density function modeling of bluff-
body stabilized flames, gas turbine and reheat combustors; thickened flame model with finite-
rate chemistry.

Duties: the successful applicant will be responsible for developing relevant models, 
performing simulations to demonstrate the modeling capability or to explore the underlying 
physics, as well as data analysis. 

Qualification: self-motivation and a strong sense of responsibility; strong understanding of 
either turbulence or chemistry; and strong coding skills and computing background.

The successful applicant will join a vibrant research group working on combustion, radiation, 
and fire modeling. Significant interaction with and internship at Sandia National Laboratory are 
expected, if the applicant is flexible with working locations. The appointment will initially be 
for one year but can be extended to three years subject to satisfactory progress. 

UCONN is situated at the heart of southern new England, with physical proximity to a wide 
range of industries including FM Global, United Technology Research Center, Pratt&Whitney, 
Electric Boat,  and General Electric, etc.. Ample opportunities to interact with industrial 
partners are expected.
