Postdoc position on Numerical and experimental study of three-phase flows

We offer a Postdoc position to conduct CFD simulations, visualization and
measurements of the three-phase (air-water-solid particles) flow in pipes.
Commercial (Ansys) and open (OpenFoam, Gerris, Basilisk) CFD codes and clusters
with 250 cores and 1280 cores are available. An experimental rig constituted by
horizontal, vertical upward and vertical downward transparent pipes as well as
bends has been already constructed in our labs, which are equipped with flow
visualization and measurement techniques. Information about our research group
activities can be found at

The selected candidate will apply for a position of the Juan de la Cierva call
of the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades which will be
open in mid-January. If the application succeeds incorporation is expected by
the second semester of 2019. The position is for two years (for candidates
without postdoc experience, who have obtained their doctoral degree between
01/01/2017 and 31/12/2018) or three years (candidate with previous postdoc
experience, who have obtained their doctoral degree between 01/01/2014 and
31/12/2016), depending on the call and it is renewable yearly. Gross salary is
about 21.500 €/year for candidates without postdoc experience and about 25.000
€/year for candidates with previous postdoc experience. The contract includes a
health insurance. Support and help to fill the application, including the
elaboration of the research program and objectives will be provided by us.
Interested candidates should send by email ( their CV with
degrees, list of publications and letters of reference.

The dynamics of three-phase flows, gas-liquid-solid mixtures (G/L/S), involves
complex phenomena and their characterization is relevant for several sectors of
the industry. Three-phase flows are present in a wide range of industrial
processes, from the production stages of oil and gas to the different stages of
refinement and production of petroleum products. G/L/S are found in the
transport of biomass or in some chemical reactors, in nuclear waste
decommissioning, pulp and paper production and in many applications with air
injections. In summary, it is important to characterize and optimize three phase
flows from a practical point of view but it is also relevant the fundamental
understanding of the dynamics of the momentum transfer between the different
phases to control and manipulate these flows and the potential transport
phenomena involved.
