TitlePhD in Turbulence Modelling of Reactive Multiphase Flows
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerJKU, Department of Particulate Flow Modelling
LocationAustria, Linz
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, February 22, 2019
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in Computational Fluid Dynamics
within Department of Particulate Flow Modelling and the Christian Doppler
Laboratory for Mulit-scale Modelling of Multiphase Processes at the Johannes
Kepler University, Linz, Austria, which have substantial knowledge in modeling
and simulating particulate multiphase flows. Our research focus is the
description of industrial-size systems based on a proper understanding of the
physical core phenomena present on micro and meso scales. To overcome the severe
limitations of multiphase simulations due to the fine grid resolution
requirements, we have recently proposed a novel numerical method following
single phase turbulence theory. Similar to single phase LES models it allows
much coarser gird resolutions resulting in speed-ups of two orders of magnitude
and more (Schneiderbauer, A spatially-averaged two-fluid model for dense
large-scale gas-solid flows , AIChE J. 2017).

Applicants should have a solid background in Computational Fluid Dynamics and.
Knowledge of C and C++ is preferable. Experience with OpenFoam would be a great
asset.  Applications are invited from candidates with an excellent masters in
Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or a related discipline.

Our prospective PhD student will be embedded in a team of 15+ researchers (6
postdocs) with a strong focus on multi-scale modelling of multiphase flows.
Furthermore, this PhD project will be in close collaboration with major European
iron makers and international research institutes. Salary will account to about
2.800€/month 14 times a year. PhD project should start at the earliest possible
date. The typical duration of such a thesis is 3 years.

Interested candidates are required to prepare a two page application. The first
page covers information on the applicant (name, photo, date of birth, email,
academic career, titles of selected projects and publications)  and the second
page features an abstract of the applicant’s Master thesis (or equivalent
research project). 

This short application is due on the 22nd February 2019 and should be sent by
email (pdf file) to
