TitlePhD Position with Full Research Assistantship Support
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of North Texas
LocationUnited States, Texas, Denton
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, May 15, 2023
The computational fluid dynamics (CFD) lab in the Mechanical Eng. Department at 
the University of North Texas (UNT) has an opening for a Ph.D. student with 
research assistantship support. The CFD lab research focuses on 
developing numerical methods for biofluid modeling, turbulent flow modeling, 
two-phase free-surface flow modeling, particulate flow modeling, fluid-structure 
interactions, deterministic and stochastic simulation-based design and 
optimization, uncertainty quantification, and high-performance computing 
methodology. The code development and models are primarily for ocean engineering 
applications (ocean vehicle hydrodynamics, wave/winds, stratified flows), 
biomedical applications (cardiac flow, aortic and mitral valves hemodynamics, 
LVAD), and energy systems (onshore and offshore wind turbines, wave energy 
converter). The open position is for ocean engineering applications, focusing on 
modeling and simulations of ocean vehicle responses in random waves. 

More information about the CFD lab and research activities can be found at:

Minimum qualification:

- Candidate must have experience in working with CFD software packages 
- Candidates must have US Citizenship

Preferred qualification:

- Master's degree in Mechanical engineering or related fields
- Prior experience in simulations with OpenFOAM, particularly for two-phase 
- Experience in using Fortran/C/C++ and script programming languages 
- Strong skills and experience in high-performance computing using MPI/OpenMP
- Familiar with pre and post-processing software development tools such as 
Pointwise and Tecplot. 

Interested applicants should email their CVs and an unofficial copy of their 
undergraduate and graduate transcripts to Dr. Sadat (, the 
director of the CFD lab.
