TitleHigh Performance Computing (HPC) for Digital Twins
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerUniversity of Luxembourg
LocationLuxembourg, Luxembourg
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, November 01, 2021
Description:
The University of Luxembourg (UL) invites applications for a post-doctoral position (f/m/d) as part of an industry collaboration funded by the FNR Bridges funding instrument https://www.fnr.lu/funding-instruments/.

Research Framework:
In order to deal with critical fuels that otherwise have to be disposed of, co-firing of these fuels in existing combustion plants is a an economic alternative. However, these critical fuels distinguish themselves significantly from the fuel the combustion technology was designed for and therefore, may have a negative impact on operation. Rather than investing into cost-intensive and time-consuming experimental campaigns, a multi-physics digital twin in a high performance computing environment allows exploring various co-firing scenarios in a cost-effective manner. Combining multi-physics i.e. motion and thermal conversion of solid fuels with a reacting gas phase requires a smart partitioning technology. It is the key technology to fast multi-physics digital twin simulation technology and paves the road to innovative approaches for co-firing of critical fuels. 

Your profile:
    • PhD degree in computer science, computational science or equivalent required to pursue a post-doctoral study
    • Familiar with parallel computing programming models (OpenMP and MPI) 
    • Proficient in programming and working with C++, Python, Linux, Git
    • Experience in using HPC platforms (e.g. SLURM)
    • Background in load-balancing techniques (i.e. graph partitioning with METIS, SCOTCH, Zoltan, …)
    • Knowledge in numerical simulations, e.g. Computational Fluid Dynamics, or coupling of  numerical simulations would be a significant advantage
    • Good English language skills (spoken and written)
    • Willingness to familiarise with XDEM (http://luxdem.uni.lu/) and to work in an inter-cultural and international environment
    • Ability to work independently and as part of a team
    • Curiosity and self-motivation
    • Good presentation skills will be an asset.

We offer:
    • A dynamic and well-equipped research environment within XDEM research team (http://luxdem.uni.lu/)
    • Intensive training in scientific and transferable skills, participation in schools’ conferences and workshops.
    • Fixed term employee contracts totalling 24 months
    • Personal work space at University of Luxembourg
Job responsibility:
Your primary tasks as a post-doctoral candidate are to:
    • Manage and drive forward your research project.
    • Attend trainings and social events.
    • Write scientific articles
    • Disseminate your research at conferences and seminars.


Gender policy:
UL strives to increase the proportion of female post-doc students in its faculties. Therefore, we explicitly encourage women to apply.

Supervision:
Your lead supervisor will be Prof Bernhard Peters.

Application submission:
Before proceeding with the submission of your application, please prepare the following documents.
    • Curriculum vitae
    • Motivation letter (maximum two pages) detailing how you meet the selection criteria for the given research direction.
    • Publication list.
    • Full contact details of two persons willing to act as referees.
    • Copies of diplomas, transcripts with grades, with English, French or German translation.

Please send a complete application to bernhard.peters@uni.lu. Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.

Selection process:

Candidates will be short-listed based on the criteria detailed above. Short-listed candidates will be invited for an interview and/or interviewed through appropriate internet channels.
