TitlePhD Scholarship in Fluid Dynamics at the University of Louvain
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversité catholique de Louvain
LocationBelgium, Louvain-la-Neuve
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, May 01, 2023
Thermal frontal polymerization is a process that converts a monomer
solution (liquid) into solid polymer via propagation of a localized reaction 
zone, called "front". Initiated by a brief local energy source, the front is 
self-sustained by the heat generated by the reaction. This process allows for
rapid and uniform synthesis and has gained tremendous interest as a fast, 
energy-efficient solution for advanced manufacturing, like cure-on-demand 

POLYFRONT is a joint research project between the Universities of Brussels 
(VUB and ULB),  University of Louvain (UCLouvain) and Louisiana State University 
(LSU) that aims at advancing the current state-of-the-art in the modeling and 
simulation of TFP. Within the framework of this project, one PhD Scholarship is 
immediately available at the University of Louvain. 

The proposed doctoral research involves two-phase flow modelling and numerical
simulations based on high-performance computing techniques. 

The scholarship includes a competitive salary, full insurance and social 
benefits, coverage of expenses for participation in conferences & workshops and
short stays in LSU in the United States, and full access to modern computing facilities. 

Required qualifications and skills:
- A master degree in a relevant engineering or scientific principle, preferably
 with a background in fluid mechanics or applied/computational mathematics. 

- Good grades are required for admission to the doctoral programme of UCLouvain: 
the average grade of the master degree should be at least 70/100.

- Good programming skills in a language such as C/C++, Fortran or Python,

- Ability to efficiently communicate, read and write in English. 

Interested applicants are invited to submit a detailed CV, transcripts of 
academic records (grades), a statement of research interests and names of 2 
references to Prof. M. Papalexandris,
