PI: Prof. Lin Fu 
He is an Assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace 
Engineering and the Department of Mathematics at the Hong Kong University of 
Science and Technology (HKUST). Before he joined HKUST, he was a postdoctoral 
fellow working with Prof. Parviz Moin at Center for Turbulence Research (CTR), 
Stanford University for more than 3 years and he also did postdoctoral research 
with Prof. Nikolaus A. Adams in Technical University of Munich (TUM), where he 
obtained his Ph.D. degree with a grade of Summa Cum Laude. His on-going and 
future research involves fundamental study of flow physics including turbulence, 
transitional flows, multi-phase flows, and aerodynamics. He is also focusing on 
numerical methods for solving PDEs, applied mathematics for scientific 
computing, and technologies for high-performance computing.

FU lab for computational physics and fluid mechanics is hiring:

1. One fully-funded postdoctoral opening on fundamental research of wall-bounded 
turbulence, hypersonic flows, multi-phase flows or flow stability analysis; 
high-order numerical methods or scientific computing. Candidates with strong 
backgrounds in aerospace, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics are 
very much welcome. Interested applicants should inquire directly at 
with a CV and a research statement. 

2. Two fully-funded Ph.D. openings on computational physics, scientific 
computing, aerodynamics, and fluid mechanics. Graduate students should contact 
Prof. Fu and apply to the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering or 
the Department of Mathematics at HKUST.

3. Undergraduate students for research opportunities should directly contact 
Prof. Fu at with a brief statement of their interests and 

In our group, you will collaborate with a multi-disciplinary team of researchers 
from Stanford U., MIT, TUM, Tokyo Tech etc. Our website:

Potential candidates are also strongly encouraged to apply for the fellowship 
provided by HKUST and Hong Kong government. The applicants for Ph.D. positions 
are suggested to contact Prof. Fu before November 25th (for the application of 
the fellowship from the Hong Kong government).

*The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (abbreviated as HKUST) is a 
public research university in Clear Water Bay, Hong Kong. Founded in 1991 by the 
British Hong Kong Government, it was the territory's third institution to be 
granted university status. HKUST is commonly regarded as one of the fastest 
growing universities in the world. In 2019, the university was ranked seventh in 
Asia by QS and third by The Times, and around top 40 internationally. It was 
ranked 27th in the world and second in Hong Kong by QS 2021.
