Post-Doctoral Fellow - Urban Air Mobility
Have a PhD and interested in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Urban Air Mobility?
We are recruiting for a fully-funded multi-year post-doctoral fellowship in the Concordia Computational Aerodynamics Lab. This position is in collaboration with an industry partner on the design of Urban Air Mobility rotors including aerodynamic and acoustic optimization. This will be performed using novel unsteady CFD techniques running on Graphical Processing Units (GPUs). We are looking for a person with a strong background in CFD, numerical methods, high-performance computing, and aerodynamics.
The ideal start date is May 2022, although later start dates may be considered. The position includes a competitive funding package and a personal research expenses budget.
The candidate must have the following:
- Have, or expect to receive soon, a PhD in Mechanical or Aerospace Engineering.
- Significant experience in CFD software development using C/C++
- In-depth understanding of numerical methods and their application in CFD
- Strong understanding of aerodynamics and rotorcraft design
The ideal candidate should have expertise in several of the following areas:
- High-performance parallel computing using GPUs via CUDA
- High-fidelity simulations, specifically Large Eddy Simulation (LES)
- Aerodynamic shape optimization techniques e.g. adjoint-based optimization
- Good interpersonal skills and the ability to lead and collaborate with graduate students
Interested candidates should email a cover letter and CV addressed to Dr. Brian Vermeire: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Post-Doctoral Application - CFD"
