I am currently recruiting a PhD student for the development of simulation methods that will be used to study multiphase flows coupled with scalar transport and electrokinetic phenomena. Funding is available for four years and includes a stipend and PhD student fees.
This position is in the fluid dynamics group in the recently launched Bernal Institute. This institute will establish the University of Limerick as a world leader in several key research areas: advanced materials, manufacturing and process engineering, and fluid dynamics.
Applicants are expected to have received a Master's degree in engineering, applied physics or mathematics in a topic related to fluid mechanics or colloidal systems. Excellent candidates with only an undergraduate degree will be considered. Proficiency in programming is required. Experience with lattice Boltzmann methods, finite volume methods, and parallel programming (multi-core CPU, GPU, or Xeon Phi) would be beneficial.
More information about applying to the Graduate School at the University of Limerick is available on the Graduate School's website.
