TitleFully-funded PhD position in the Turbulence Research Group
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerColumbia University
LocationUnited States, New York, New York
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, February 15, 2019
The Turbulence Research Group at Columbia University — Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics 
Department — is seeking applications for a fully-funded Ph.D. position in computational fluid dynamics.

The principal objective of the Turbulence Research Group is to advance the physical understanding of 
turbulence and related non-linear multi-scale phenomena. These advances are directed to improving 
capabilities for modeling and control of turbulence in engineering and environmental applications. 

The ideal candidate should have a background in Engineering, Physics, Computational Science, or a related 
field. Candidates with strong numerical and analytical skills are encouraged to apply. The candidate will 
pursue leading-edge research on a project that was recently funded by the Data Science Institute at 
Columbia University. The goal of the project is to combine computational fluid dynamics with machine 
learning to gain insight on scalar transport in turbulent boundary-layer flows, and to reconstruct a turbulent 
flow field from spatially-limited information. 

The Ph.D. thesis will be developed at Columbia University in the city of New York, and collaboration will be 
fostered with colleagues from world-leading institutions. A competitive salary including tuition fees and full 
employee benefits are offered in accordance with the University guidelines.

The interested applicant should send a Curriculum Vitae and a brief cover letter describing his/her areas of 
expertise and interest to, along with names and contact information of two 
references. Please include the job record ID in the subject of your email. Feel free to contact me 
directly at the address above should more information be needed. The review process will commence 
immediately and continue until position is filled.
