Los Alamos National Laboratory Computational Fluid Dynamics Postdoc in Los Alamos, New Mexico

Vacancy Name: IRC74562

Description

Job Title Computational Fluid Dynamics Postdoc

Location Los Alamos, NM, US

Organization Name T-3/Fluid Dynamics And Solid Mechanics

Minimum Salary

Maximum Salary

What You Will Do

Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is a multidisciplinary research institution engaged in strategic science on behalf of national security. LANL enhances national security by ensuring the safety and reliability of the U.S. nuclear stockpile, developing technologies to reduce threats from weapons of mass destruction, and solving problems related to energy, environment, infrastructure, health, and global security concerns.

The Fluid Dynamics and Solid Mechanics (T-3) group is seeking candidates for a postdoctoral position in methods and model development for computational fluid dynamics. The successful candidate will work on a team developing parallel simulation software for addressing turbulent reactive flows and multiphase flows in complex geometries with fluid-structure interaction. Research and development activities will include:

  • Understanding and extending turbulent reactive flow solution methods with multiphase flows,sprays, and fluid-structure interaction, on HPC systems.

  • Design and development of software for application to a broad range CFD problems utilizing variational forms of the governing equations.

  • Interaction with other team members on: software design, combustion physics, model and algorithm development and implementation related to combustion systems, application of the software for turbulent reactive flows in combustion systems inclusive of internal combustion engines.

This position is for a two-year appointment.

What You Need

Minimum Job Requirements:

Demonstrated knowledge and experience and a strong publication record in one or more of the following areas:

  • Combustion physics modeling.

  • Turbulent reactive flows.

  • Numerical methods, in particular methods developed for MPI and OpenMP supercomputing applications.

  • FORTRAN 95/2003 and/or C/C++ Some knowledge of grid generation for complex problems with commercial software.

Strong communication and language skills as evidenced by publications and a cover letter.

Desired Skills:

Familiarity with adaptive finite element methods, turbulent compressible flow, reactive flow or combustion, front-tracking methods, particle laden flows and solution algorithms and advanced turbulence modeling techniques for variable density flows that may be composed of multiple phases.

Education: A Ph.D. in mechanical engineering or related field completed within the past 5 years is required.

Notes to Applicants: For information contact David B. Carrington at 505-667-3569 or dcarring@lanl.gov

Additional Details:

Position does not require a security clearance. Selected candidates will be subject to drug testing and other pre-employment background checks.

New-Employment Drug Test: The Laboratory requires successful applicants to complete a new-employment drug test and maintains a substance abuse policy that includes random drug testing.

Candidates may be considered for a Director's Postdoc Fellowship and outstanding candidates may be considered for the prestigious Richard P. Feynman, Darleane Christian Hoffman, J. Robert Oppenheimer, or Frederick Reines Distinguished Postdoc Fellowships.
