Professor of Turbulence and Multiphase Flow
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology: Faculty Positions: Physical Science and Engineering Division (faculty): Mechanical Engineering Program
Location King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, Thuwal, Saudi Arabia
We seek a candidate with a strong expertise in theoretical or numerical
simulations of complex fluid flow, such as turbulence or multi-phase-flow. For developing modeling of multi-scale data from experiments or for optimization and control of fluid-dynamical processes.
The Mechanical Engineering Program is recruiting outstanding faculty members into our multi-disciplinary and internationally collaborating faculty, to continue building one of the world's finest teaching and research institutions and to fulfill its educational and research missions. KAUST offers superb research facilities, generous research funding, and internationally competitive salaries.
The Mechanical Engineering Program currently has 13 full-time faculty members, over 53 postdocs and research scientists and more than 140 graduate students. The Mechanical Engineering Program (http://me.kaust.edu.sa) focuses on the following areas: combustion and energy, fluid mechanics, materials and solid mechanics, and dynamics and control. The Clean Combustion Research Center (CCRC) carries out cutting-edge research on all aspects of combustion from flame study to modeling.
The Physical Science and Engineering Division comprises seven Degree Programs: Material Science and Engineering, Applied Physics, Earth Science and Engineering, Energy Resources and Petroleum Engineering, Chemical Science, Chemical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. These disciplines provide the foundation for our Division's quest to address some of the major challenges that we face in the world today, including those related to energy and the environment. Specifically, our faculty members and their research teams work on photovoltaics, super capacitors, porous materials, clean combustion, atmospheric modeling and other topics.
A relevant Ph.D. degree. Proven track record in managing a research group as well as publishing high-impact papers.
Teaching and service responsibilities
Commitment to high-quality teaching at the graduate level, including generally two courses per academic year. Active service to KAUST on all aspects of academic life.
The University offers access to multiple sources of research funding to its Principal Investigators. The successful applicant should have an established record of publishing high-impact papers, and is expected to create a thriving research program including engaging in national and international scientific collaborations.
