About the Department/Section/Group

Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden is seeking a highly qualified postdoctoral research associate to investigate the behavior of turbulence interface interactions and establish new models for CFD analysis. Funded by the Swedish Research Council, this project aims at i.) improving the understanding of the interactions between turbulence and interfaces, ii.) elucidate droplet and gas bubble breakup in turbulent flows, iii.) develop reliable subgrid CFD models i.e. kernels required for CFD-PBM simulation of processes where gas-liquid and liquid-liquid flows is central. The position as postdoctoral research associate is for two years.

CFD simulations in chemical, biochemical, food and other engineering disciplines often involve rapid micro scale phenomenon e.g. breakup, coalescence, mixing and fast reactions. This project aims at improving our understanding and develop the next generation subgrid models for CFD analysis.-
