Perform basic research in the field of ship motions as well as experimental and computational fluid dynamics in the Dr. Leigh McCue-Weil’s research lab. Research expertise in either RANS or meshfree CFD approaches such as SPH with interest in both approaches and/or expertise in experimental fluids. Job responsibilities will require strong experience with computational and experimental components. Post-doc will work with Dr. McCue-Weil in preparing reports to the research sponsor, writing journal and conference papers, and presenting in conference and other open forums.
Ph.D. in ocean/naval/aerospace/mechanical or related engineering discipline, as well as knowledge of, or experience in, CFD and experimental fluids.
Experience with OpenFoam, SPHysics or other mesh-free Lagrangian CFD approach.
