Description

Job description

The goal of this project is to use computational-fluid-dynamics (CFD) methods for the analysis of turbulent flows around complex geometries. To this end, high-order spectral methods will be employed to perform both well- resolved large-eddy simulations and direct numerical simulations, in order to assess the influence of the relevant flow structures. We are also interested in using deep-learning methods to further understand the impact of the simulation parameters on the results and to effectively design novel strategies for optimization and control of the flow. The researcher will have the possibility to interact with several related projects dealing with large- scale turbulence simulations, deep learning and experiments. Furthermore, he/she will also have access to the multi-peta scale supercomputing facilities available at KTH, in conjunction with the Swedish e-Science Research Centre (SeRC, www. e-science.se). Finally, the researcher will become part of the excellent research environment FLOW (www. flow.kth.se).

What we offer
  • A position at a leading technical university that generates knowledge and skills for a sustainable future
  • Engaged and ambitious colleagues along with a creative, international and dynamic working environment
  • Works in Stockholm, in close proximity to nature
  • Help to relocate and be settled in Sweden and at KTH
  • Read more about what it is like to work at KTH
