TitleReal-time simulations of polydisperse fluidized bed dynamics
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerJKU/Department of Particulate Flow Modelling
LocationAustria, Linz
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateFriday, April 30, 2021
Open PD position in real-time simulations of polydisperse fluidized bed 

The Department of Particulate Flow Modelling at the Johannes Kepler 
University, Austria, is recognized for developing novel modelling and 
simulation techniques for multiphase, multi-scale flows. With recurrence CFD 
(rCFD), we have created a data-assisted time-extrapolation methodology that 
allows to simulate recurrent processes several orders of magnitude faster 
than with conventional numerical tools.

For this joint project with the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), we 
are looking for a PostDoc who will further extend rCFD towards polydisperse 
particle dynamics. Under guidance of the rCFD core developers, the 
successful candidate will carry out real-time simulations of fluidized bed 
spray granulation, which will eventually be integrated into a control system 
for an experimental fluidized bed setup at TUHH.

Interested PostDoc applicants should have

• in-depth knowledge on the numerical simulation of multiphase (particulate) 

• pronounced programming skills (C/C++)
• a strong scientific track-record in terms of peer-reviewed publications

Our prospective colleague will be embedded in an international team of 15+ 
researchers with a strong focus on multi-scale modelling of multiphase 
flows. This project should start in summer/fall 2021 and is scheduled for 
three years. Salary will account to approx. 3.900 € gross per month 14 times 
a year.

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 doctoral thesis (or 
equivalent research project). 

This short application is due on the 30th of April 2021 and should be sent 
by email (pdf file) to
