TitlePostdoc/PhD/Master in lower order wind energy modeling
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerBTU Cottbus Senftenberg
LocationGermany, Brandenburg, Cottbus
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSunday, April 21, 2024
The Scientific Computing Lab (SCL) at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg has open 
positions for a Postdoc, Ph.D. and/or M.Sc. in Numerical Modeling of Wind Farms. 
This project is a part of ongoing activities within the newly-created SCL which is 
part of the Energy Innovation Center (EIZ).

The project focuses on developing and coupling advanced numerical tools for 
integral wind farm modeling in complex environmental terrains and under realistic 
atmospheric conditions. During this process, fundamental questions related to the 
incoming wind field, wake-structure interaction, wake mitigation strategies and 
wake control, influence of the atmospheric stability and roughness effects, will 
be explored. During the project the application of stochastic models, ROM and 
physics-informed NN will play a key role. 

The main responsibilities will lie in:

- coupling different modules of the code to perform an integral simulation of the 
wind park in complex terrain interacting with stratified flows 
- validation  
- incorporation of control strategies
- coupling weather models
- comparison to field data 

The potential candidates should have:

- a strong background in fluid mechanics and CFD (DNS, LES preferred)
- experience with Linux and strong hands-on experience with computing in  C/C++ or 
- experience in developing numerical models, codes, and computation algorithms
- experience with CFD using FEM and/or FVM
- familiarity with OPENFAST or QBlade

The position is available from now on. Please send the following documents only 
via email to using "SCL":

- Recent CV
- Relevant Transcripts
- Two-page cover letter including a motivation  

Please ensure you submit all required documents. Only qualified candidates might 
be contacted for an online-interview.
