TitleLarge Eddy Simulations of atmospheric flows
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerBarcelona Supercomputing Center - CASE department
LocationSpain, Barcelona, Barcelona
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, February 04, 2019
The fellow will join the BSC CASE Department, with research lines on mesoscale and microscale 
meteorological modelling, wind energy, and atmospheric transport modelling. He/she will perform research 
on explicit Large Eddy Simulations (LES) atmospheric model implementations using the in-house 
multiphysics Alya solver  (
simulations/alya-high-performance-computational) on both general purpose and emerging hardware 
architectures towards Exascale computing. Research applications will focus on the fields of wind energy 
(modelling of on-shore and off-shore wind farms considering all aspects affecting surface layer 
atmospheric flows in complex terrains) and high-resolution wind field modelling and dispersion of 
pollutants at urban-scale. The wind energy application will be done in collaboration with a world leading 
industry (Iberdrola Renovables) through the SEDAR (“Simulación eólica de alta resolución”) project. In 
addition, the fellow will also collaborate giving a transversal service to the following on-going projects: 
•	LegaTo in improving the Alya LES-CFD explicit solver efficiency in a demonstrator for future 
operational air quality modelling system based on CFD and covering large urban domains at high 
resolution (tens of meters).
•	Energy oriented Center of Excellence for computer applications (EoCoE, ) in modelling 
wind in complex terrains accounting for wind turbine rotor and wake effects.


- LES Wall modeling - equilibrium & non-equilibrium (RANS/LES) models.
- Inflow boundary conditions.
- ABL specific LES models and innovative models such as ILSA.
- Actuator disc & actuator line models.
- Thermal coupling (stable and unstable conditions)
- Coriolis force.


o   PhD obtained between 2011 and 2016 (there are some exceptions)

o   2 years of postdoctoral experience out of Spain

o   To have not worked more than 12 months in Spain during last 3 years
