TitleMultiple positions: Simulation of transition and turbulence
CategoryPostDoc Position
EmployerJohns Hopkins University
LocationUnited States, Maryland, Baltimore
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
The Johns Hopkins University is seeking up to three highly qualified candidates for post-doctoral research 

fellowships. The opportunities involve high-fidelity simulations of transitional and turbulent flows in complex 

configurations (transition in high-speed flows, turbulence, flow interactions with compliant materials, hydro-

acoustics) and analysis of data from simulations and experiments. The researchers will work collaboratively 

with members of the Flow Science and Engineering Group (Prof. T. Zaki) at Johns Hopkins University. 

Position 1:  The successful candidate will perform unique studies of transition to turbulence in hypersonic 

boundary layers and will develop techniques to integrate scarce experimental measurements (provided by 

collaborators) in high-fidelity simulations. The effort involves direct numerical simulations of hypersonic flows 

and variational data assimilation methods. 

Position 2:  The successful candidate will perform direct numerical simulations of turbulence interaction with 

compliant materials.  The two-way coupling of the turbulence and the material will be analyzed, as well as the 

wall-pressure fluctuations and the associated hydro-acoustic field.  

Position 3:  The successful candidate will perform analysis of high-dimensional data using machine-learning 

techniques.  The data will be from various sources, including simulations and experimental measurements 

made available by our collaborators, and related to different physics (materials synthesis and testing, 

acoustic emissions from deformations, flow simulations,...etc).


1. Ph.D. in Engineering, Physics, Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, or related 

engineering or science discipline 

2. Prior experience and contributions in computational fluid dynamics, numerical methods, scientific 

computing, and data science and machine learning.


Interested applicants should send a CV with a cover letter, names of at least three references, and a summary 

of recent work and interests. All applications should be submitted electronically as a single PDF document to:

Prof. Tamer Zaki
