We Are Recruiting: One Ph.D. Research Assistant Position Available


Computational Biofluidics and Biomechanics Laboratory at Oklahoma State 
University ( is seeking one highly motivated Ph.D. candidate 
to join the group of Dr. Yu Feng in the School of Chemical Engineering in SPRING 
2023.  The two openings are for graduate students who are interested in (1) 
applying computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to seeking optimized mitigation plans 
to control the airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 laden aerosols, (2) developing 
novel whole-lung modeling framework for pulmonary targeted drug delivery 
integrating CFD and artificial intelligence (AI), and/or (3) developing models to 
understand embolism formation in arteries. The Ph.D. candidate position will be 
offered a research assistantship. During his/her Ph.D. study, the successful 
candidate will: 
•	Focus on teamwork/collaboration, engineering fundamentals, creativity, 
and communication development (both written and oral)
•	Establish novel and realistic computer simulation models that will 
provide quantitative data for the assessment of inhaled aerosol transport, 
deposition, absorption, and translocation in human bodies.
•	Interact with experimentalists and clinical doctors to validate numerical 
models and theoretical findings.
•	Integrate scientific knowledge on pulmonary disease detection and 
treatment from multiple aspects in addition to pure computational research.
•	Analyze numerical results and findings to generate new insights with 
relevance to, but not limited to, pulmonary health risk assessment, pulmonary 
drug delivery device optimization, non-invasive pulmonary disease diagnosis, etc.
•	Contribute to the preparation of scientific publications and project 


•	Meet the admission requirements of the Graduate Program at Oklahoma State 
•	B.S./M.S. in Chemical Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Mechanical 
Engineering, or other related engineering/science disciplines
•	Solid background in Partial Different Equations, Transport Phenomena, 
Aerosol Science, and Fluid Mechanics.
•	Proficiency in C/C++ and/or Python programming.
•	Proficiency in OpenFOAM
•	High motivation, great enthusiasm, and commitment to research excellence
•	Good verbal and written English skills
•	Good commercial CFD code skills for ANSYS CFD/Fluent and mesh generation 
tools are preferred
•	Experience in Artificial Intelligence is preferred
•	Experience in AutoCAD/Solidworks is preferred
•	Experience in turbulence and multiphase flow modeling is preferred
•	Experience in fluid-structure interaction (FSI) modeling is preferred
•	Experience in parallel programming and high-performance computing is 

Financial Support 

The qualified candidate will be offered a research assistantship (RA) that 
includes tuition waiver plus a bi-weekly stipend.
Close Date
Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position 
is filled.
