TitlePhD positions in Fluid and/or Plasma Dynamics
CategoryPhD Studentship
LocationUnited States, NY, Rochester
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSaturday, January 15, 2022
We are seeking highly motivated PhD students to join our group in the Department 
of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Rochester (UofR). More 
information can be found at

The positions are highly interdisciplinary and can involve research in several 
areas, including fluid dynamics, plasma physics, turbulence, nonlinear multi-
scale science, hydrodynamic instabilities. Research can include any combination 
of theory, simulations, and/or experiments. We are especially seeking applicants 
with interest in analyzing and understanding (i) oceanic flows or (ii) flows in 
fusion plasmas and astrophysical systems.

Founded in 1850, UofR is a highly competitive private research university which 
enrolls approximately 6,000 undergraduate and 3,500 graduate students. It has 
historical links to pivotal US social movements, including women’s suffrage 
(Susan B. Anthony) and abolitionism (Frederick Douglass).

Fluids and Plasma research at UofR has a well-established collaborative group 
involving several faculty and a large number of students and postdocs. Recently, 
we have been awarded ~$13 million to establish and host a multi-institution NSF 
Physics Frontier Center for Matter at Atomic Pressures (CMAP). Successful 
candidates would join a large group with diverse backgrounds and interests, 
including active collaborators at MIT, Princeton, UC Berkeley and UC Davis, U. 
Buffalo, and Livermore National Lab. Our department offers a friendly and 
stimulating research environment, and enjoys strong ties to a leading DOE fusion 
research facility, the Laboratory for Laser Energetics, which is adjacent to 
campus, and to the medical school, one of the top in the US.

The city of Rochester is a thriving and affordable, low-stress, medium sized 
metropolis (metro area population ~1 million) with excellent public services and 
amenities. It enjoys a vibrant performing arts culture thanks in-part to UofR’s 
Eastman School of Music, often ranked as the top music school in the US, and 
several small colleges that focus on the arts. For outdoors enthusiasts, there 
are many well-maintained parks that offer sanctuaries within the city and many 
gorgeous state parks that are less than a 1 hour drive. Many of the beaches 
along lake Ontario are within 15-30 minutes from the city, and the Adirondack 
mountains are within a 3 hour drive.

We welcome applications from candidates with a background in engineering, 
physics, applied math, or related disciplines. 

** Application Deadline ** January 15, 2022. 
Formal applications should be submitted through the ME department's website:

Potential candidates are encouraged to contact Hussein Aluie
