TitlePostDoc in Multiphase Flow Modelling
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerDublin City University
LocationIreland, Dublin
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, March 15, 2019
Applications are invited for a highly motivated and talented Post-Doctoral 
Researcher to conduct computational and laboratory based experimental research 
in micro bubble plume mixing and oxygen dissolution. The successful candidate 
will be responsible for the development and benchmarking of two computational 
solvers based, on the one hand, on a Lagrangian model coupled with a dissolved 
oxygen transport equations and, on the other hand, on a Euler-Euler solution. 
The code will also be extended to capture the effect of mixers using momentum 
source terms. Validation will initially involve comparison with experimental 
tests conducted at lab scale with an existing aeration rig equipped with 
shadow sizing characterisation and fast response DO sensing. The research will 
be conducted in collaboration with an Industrial partner and an important part 
of the project will involve the design and build of a large purpose built 
hydraulic test facilities. The successful candidate will also work with a team 
of engineers, a consultant and a research assistant on the specification of 
the facility and subsequent full scale validation tests.

Applicants should be qualified Mechanical engineers or equivalent. A PhD or 
equivalent is essential and the successful candidate must have a proven track 
record of research and development in the areas that are directly relevant to 
the position. S/he must have research experience in the following areas: (i) 
Computational Fluid Dynamics of multiphase flow and (ii) experimental 
characterisation of gas and/or solid particle transport and (iii) hydraulic 
system design.

Applicants must apply through the standard university application process.
