MARIE CURIE GRANT AGREEMENT NUMBER813948
The Institute of Fluid Flow Machinery Polish Academy of Sciences (Instytut Maszyn Przepływowych im Roberta Szewalskiego Polskiej Akademii Nauk) is the leading organization in the field of fluid mechanics, multiphase flows, thermodynamics and heat exchange, laser measurement techniques, machinery dynamics, tribology and diagnostics of energy production machinery. The thematic orientation of its research concerns aerodynamics, solid mechanics and energy conversion in flows including plasma and lasers.
Centre of Hydrodynamics, Group of Multiphase Flows:
"Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics for simulation of multiphase flows"
In the framework of the EU H2020 programme, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Innovative Training Network European Industrial Doctorate (ITN-EID), the project COMETE, we offer a PhD position. A full time (40 h/week), fixed-term work contract is offered for 3 years. The PhD candidate will be based at the IMP PAN and secondments totalling 18 months are foreseen at partner institutions of the network, in particular at ESTECO (Trieste, Italy). The candidate will participate in schools and workshops of the project, and will present his research findings at international conferences. COMETE is offering its young researchers a training platform combining theoretical modelling, numerical simulations, experiments, and interactions with industrial partners.
The PhD subject is of theoretical and numerical nature: it involves simulations of two-phase flows with interfaces, applying a Lagrangian approach of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). The candidate will use and further develop in-house codes, introducing new physical and mathematical models.
The PhD thesis will be submitted to IMP PAN Gdańsk.
For further information, please contact Prof. Jacek Pozorski by phone (+48 58 5225145) or email (email@example.com).
The gross salary, including the mobility allowance, is 2668.06 €/month. The family allowance, if eligible, amounts to 500 €/month.
Other: 36 days of paid leave per year. Fringe benefits: social fund.
The candidates will be verified against eligibility criteria in Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2018 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
The applications should include a cover letter, CV, photo, all transcripts, diplomas, list of publications (if any), and contact information for two reference persons. As the motivation for fundamental scientific research of practical relevance is essential, applicants are required to point out in their cover letter how the project will build upon their previous education, research and competence.
If needed, selected Candidates may be invited for an interview (in person or via videoconference on internet).
In the evaluation of which candidate is best qualified, emphasis will be placed on education, experience and personal suitability, as well as motivation, in terms of the qualification requirements specified in the advertisement.
The partners of the COMETE project do strictly adhere to the ethical standards of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers, see https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/charter. Female candidates are particularly encouraged to apply and in case of equal qualification will be recruited preferentially. Applicants must satisfy some eligibility rules, in particular in terms of transnational mobility, see http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions. A strict equal opportunity, gender-neutral and internationally comparable recruitment procedure is implemented
REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVELEngineering: Master Degree or equivalentPhysics: Master Degree or equivalentMathematics: Master Degree or equivalent
REQUIRED LANGUAGESENGLISH: Excellent
We are looking for a motivated candidate with intellectual curiosity, willing to work in the international research environment against tight deadlines, ready to gain experience also in industry, ready to share his/her PhD timespan between Poland and Italy (for the industrial secondment). Specific requirements:
• a master degree in engineering (mechanical, chemical, aerospace or related field), physics or applied mathematics
• and very good knowledge of (and genuine interest in) numerical methods and fluid dynamics; familiarity with multiphase flows will be a plus
• knowledge of Linux OS and programming languages: Fortran, C++, Python or alike (for data postprocessing)
• operational knowledge and development experience of CFD software and/or parallel computing and/or GPU programming will be an asset
• good command of written and spoken English
