Employment

Following positions are open at the centeremployment

Postdoc / Research Scientist

University of Florida at Gainesville is establishing a US Department of Energy supported Center of Excellence in predictive simulation science titled “Center for Compressible Multiphase Turbulence”.  The center is seeking highly motivated postdoc and research scientist candidates. US citizenship or permanent residency is highly preferred. The ideal candidate would have experience in two or more of the following areas: 1) CFD, 2) large (peta) scale simulations, 3) high performance computing, 4) verification, validation and uncertainty quantification, 5) hardware architecture emulation. Candidates must also have less than five years’ experience post-doctorate, a demonstrated record of individual initiative in research, strong analytic skills, and potential to become an independent academic researcher.

The unique and exciting aspects of this position are the possibility of working with some of the world largest massively parallel computing platforms, the opportunity to work on a complex multi-disciplinary multiphysics multiscale problem of national importance, being exposed to a wide-ranging problems involving physics, mechanics, computer science, and numerical methods, and, finally, the possibility to work with Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) scientists and spend extended periods working at the DOE NNSA labs.

Interested candidates should send via e-mail cover letter, current curriculum vitae, statement of research interest, and the names and addresses of three references to Professor S. Balachandar, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, e-mail: bala1s@ufl.edu. Please mention which of the above mentioned areas of focus you are applying for.

Graduate Research Assistants

University of Florida at Gainesville is establishing a US Department of Energy supported Center of Excellence in predictive simulation science titled “Center for Compressible Multiphase Turbulence”.  The center is seeking to fill several graduate research assistant positions. US citizenship or permanent residency is highly preferred.

The ideal candidate must be interested in pursuing collaborative research towards doctoral degree in two or more of the following areas: 1) CFD, 2) large (peta) scale simulations, 3) high performance computing, 4) verification, validation and uncertainty quantification, 5) hardware architecture emulation. Candidates must be a PhD student in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), Computer & Information Systems Engineering (CISE), or a related department at the University of Florida.
