TitlePh.D. in CFD for Multi-phase and Reactive Flow
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Massachusetts Lowell
LocationUnited States, Massachusetts, Lowell
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSaturday, December 15, 2018
The Multi-phase and Reacting Flows Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts
Lowell (UML) is currently looking for 1-2 Ph.D. candidates to work on
Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling of energy conversion devices to start in
the Fall semester of 2019. These positions will be fully funded, including
tuition and a stipend.

UML is a Carnegie Doctoral High Research (RU/H) university ranked in the top
tier of US News' National Universities and is strategically located 30 miles
northwest of Boston in the northeast Massachusetts high-tech region, and
includes a well-recognized program in Energy.

The UML Multi-phase and Reacting Flows Laboratory focuses on high-fidelity,
computational fluid dynamics modeling of complex flows, focused primarily on
energy applications. The goals of the laboratory are to advance the
state-of-the-art of modeling in multi-phase and reacting flows, to quantify the
accuracy of current and new numerical methods, and to use the developed tools to
reduce the environmental impact of combustion and energy conversion devices.

Current projects in the lab include:
 * Advanced combustion concepts for internal combustion engines using
alternative fuels, including natural gas
 * Accelerating combustion simulations through Machine Learning
 * Developing new Lagrangian-Eulerian methods for fuel spray simulations
 * Verification, Validation, and Uncertainty Quantification (VVUQ) of
large-scale CFD simulations

More information about the lab can be found on the lab's website: 

Required qualifications
 * An MS degree in engineering, mathematics, or other closely related field
 * Prior background in one of: CFD modeling, Combustion, Multi-phase flows
 * Programming experience in at least 1 scientific computing language
Desired qualifications
 * Experience working in a Linux computing environment
 * Prior work with CFD of sprays and/or combustion
 * Significant programming experience in C++ and/or Fortran, especially in the
context of a CFD code
 * Proficient programming with Python, Julia, R, Matlab, Octave, or similar for
data analysis and plotting
 * Prior experience with machine learning programming and frameworks

Candidates will also be required to meet the admissions requirements of UML

Interested candidates should email the following to Prof. Noah Van Dam at
Noah_VanDam [at]
 * A statement of interest/cover letter (may be within the body of the email)
 * A professional resume/CV
 * A programming sample (this may be a subroutine or component of a larger
project, including class projects; programming language does not matter)
 * A sample of your work (e.g. journal or conference publication, if available,
or class project report; Must be primarily the work of the applicant)
