PostDoc Position (f/m/d) Cluster of Excellence "Data-Integrated Simulation Science"
University of Stuttgart
PostDoc Position (f/m/d) in Stuttgart (Germany) PN 1-3: Impact of Porous Media Tropology on Turbulent Fluid Flow – Highly Resolved Space and Time Interactions
CLUSTER OF EXCELLENCE "DATA-INTEGRATED SIMULATION SCIENCE" (EXC 2075)
The Cluster of Excellence "Data-Integrated Simulation Science" (EXC 2075) is an interdisciplinary research center with more than 200 scientists performing research towards a common goal: We target a new class of modeling and computational methods based on available data from various sources, in order to take the usability, precision and reliability of simulations to a new level. The open positions are integrated into the Graduate School of the Cluster.
This experimental project focuses on understanding how different porous structure topologies will influence turbulent fluid flow interactions. Different types of porous media will be considered with pore sizes ranging from the millimetre to the sub-micron range. The main goal is to enable measurements at different scales with a high spatial and temporal resolution, which will provide a better understanding of the turbulence pumping mechanism. Time-resoveld PIV (Particle Image Velocimetry) and PIT (Particle Image Thermometry) will be employed. The position does not involve any teaching responsibilities.
What we are looking for
We seek applicants with a Doctorate in aerospace engineering or physics, experience in optical metrology (PIV and others) and data analysis, excellent writing skills, fluency in English is required, command of German would be appreciated. Successful candidates should be curiosity-driven, ambitious, creative, and passionate about interdisciplinary research in the area of simulation and data sciences. Candidates will be selected on a competitive basis and will be selected without regard to sex, race or nationality.
Information and application
Please send your application electronically by June 30th, 2019 to firstname.lastname@example.org. However, also later submissions will be taken into consideration.
Applications should include a cover letter, an academic CV, a one-page motivation text indicating your preferred project as well as up to two further projects of interest, names of potential academic referees, certificates and transcripts of records from your Bachelor/Master degrees, language certificates (German or English if available). Applicants for PostDoc positions must also include their PhD certificate, a publication list and PDFs of two relevant publications.
