You can find more information about working at NTNU and the application process here.About the position
We have a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellow at The Department of Chemical Engineering, NTNU. The position is part of the FRIPRO project “Establishing next-generation pioneering models for interface mass transfer, breakup and coalescence in turbulent flow”, funded by the Norwegian Research Council.
The position is planned for two-years time at NTNU and one-year at TU Wien.
The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.
In this project, we aim to further develop interface resolved simulations of turbulent dispersed flow to also include the interface mass transfer phenomenon. The current in-house code considers turbulent channel flow of fluid particles that can deform, breakup and coalescence (i.e., the fluid particle size is larger than the Kolmogorov scale). The dispersed phase is modelled using the phase field method. The project bases on a close collaboration between NTNU (Prof. J. Solsvik) and TU Wien (Prof. A. Soldati) and will develop from simulation framework found in work such as, e.g., Mangani et al. (2022), Phyical Review Fluids 7, 053601: Influence of density and viscosity on deformation, breakage, and coalescence of bubbles in turbulence.Duties of the position
