Job description

The applied computational fluid dynamics group within the Department of Mechanics is offering an one-year postdoc position with the possibility of continuation for up to two years in the field of turbulent compressible flow simulations with application to propulsion (e.g. compressible high speed jets, transonic and supersonic flows interacting with turbomachinery components). The group has personnel with a wide range of backgrounds and expertise, including turbulence modeling, aeroacoustics, and flows associated with industrial applications. The research group has well-established contacts and co-operations with industrial as well as academic national and international partners.

The project targets a physics based understanding of generation mechanisms of noise associated with propulsion systems and of its propagation.

A limited amount of teaching will possibly be included.


A PhD degree, awarded (or planned to be awarded before the commencement of the position) in fluid mechanics or a related field (e.g. Aerospace Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, Engineering Physics) is a requirement. The PhD degree may not be older than three years at the time of employment. We seek a candidate with a strong background in programming and computational fluid dynamics (Large Eddy Simulations) and/or aeroacoustics. The successful applicant should be strongly motivated, have the capability to work independently as well as in collaboration with members of the research group, and have good communication skills.
