TitleFunded Ph.D./M.Sc. in Numerical Modeling for Hypersonic Flow
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Calgary
LocationCanada, AB, Calgary
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateWednesday, May 01, 2024
The Computational Fluid & Structural Mechanics group (CFSMgroup) at the University 
of Calgary has an open fully-fundedPh.D. and M.Sc. position in Numerical Modeling 
for Hypersonic Flows in Thermochemical Nonequilibrium. The role of the Ph.D. 
student will be to develop the numerical framework to model hypersonic flows in 
thermochemical nonequilibrium, including the ionization. 

The student will work with the in-house code for two-temperature equation model. 
Student will be working with the experimental data obtained at NASA Langley and 
CSA as well as to perform detailed validation using set of benchmark problems. 
During the degree the student might also work closely with the researchers from 
NASA, DLR and academic institutions worldwide (this will also include up to 6 
months research internship abroad through MITACS Globalink).

The potential candidates should have a strong background in numerical methods, 
compressible flows, programming (Fortran, C, C++, etc), finite elements/finite 
volumes, computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The candidate should be familiar with 
mesh generation tools (Gmsh, ANSA, or other) and data vizualization tools (e.g. 
VisIt, Paraview, etc). Experience with parallel computing (MPI, CUDA) is an asset.

CFSMgroup is a part of the University of Calgary Aerospace Network (UCAN) which 
involved collaboration with national and international academic institutions, 
industrial partners and governmental agencies, including NASA, Canadian Space 
Agency (CSA), Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC), US Air Force Office 
of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Lockheed Martin, Peraton, and more. Research 
projects are also sponsored by various Canadian small- and medium-sized 
enterprises (SMEs) and startups in aerospace, which is a potential employment 
opportunity after the degree.

The start date is negotiable but ideally Summer/Fall 2024. To apply, please send 
your up-to-date CV, unofficial transcripts, and a two-page cover letter to Dr. 
Artem Korobenko ( In your cover letter, please 
include projects you worked on and a one-page proposal for the potential research 
topic (in the area of hypersonic flows) that you would like to work on during your 
program at the University of Calgary.

Due to the nature of the project, the position is only available to students from 
EU, USA, Australia, Canada, Japan and UK.
