Research Fellow, Mechanical Engineering
We are currently seeking a highly motivated researcher to perform research related to theoretical and numerical modellings in low-Reynolds-number fluid-structure interactions. The successful applicant is expected to build and utilize computational tools, or develop theoretical models to unravel the physical mechanisms underlying the experimental observations, and is responsible for conducting high quality research, writing academic papers and collaborating with other researchers. We focus on studying the behavior of flexible structures, including capsule/vesicle, droplet/bubble and filaments/fibers/sheets immersed in the viscous fluids, as well as its applications in the microfluids, microrobots, etc.
The successful applicant should have a PhD degree in the related fields from internationally recognized universities. Ideally, the candidate needs to have: -
- A good knowledge of fluid dynamics and transport phenomena.
- Great experience in coding in Fortran/C/C++ and parallel computing.
- Experience in lattice Boltzmann modelling of emulsions.
- Experience in modelling on interfacial evolution, viscoelastic/multiphase fluid transport phenomena.
- Good publication records on high impact peer-reviewed journals.
- Working/Studying experiences in English-speaking countries for one year or more.
- Good communication and team working skills with the ability to present research findings.
