IISc Bengaluru Post Doc Research Fellow Vacancy - COVID -19 Project

IISc Bengaluru Post Doc Research Fellow Vacancy – COVID -19 Project

Applications are invited for the position of a post-doctoral research fellow, to work on a project entitled “Direct numerical simulation of cough/sneeze/speech flows for understanding transmission dynamics of COVID-19-type infections”. This is a multi-institutional project involving researchers from IISc-Bengaluru, ICTS-TIFR-Bengaluru, JNCASR-Bengaluru and Nordita (KTH)- Stockholm.

Job Title: post-doctoral research fellow

The project involves

• To carry out direct numerical simulations (DNS) for cough/sneeze/speech flows using an
available code, on a supercomputer housed at one of these institutes.
• To modify the existing code to include the dynamics of individual liquid droplets,
including gravitational settling and phase change, and to parallelize the modified code.
• To carry out a study on the computed results to improve our understanding of these flows, and to develop physics-based models.

Required qualifications/skills are as follows:

• PhD in Chemical Engineering or in Physics with the PhD topic
being in computational and theoretical fluid dynamics.
• Strong understanding of fluid dynamics, turbulence and moist thermodynamics.
• Good expertise in numerical programming, code parallelization and running codes on a
• Strong publication record.
• Excellent writing and communication skills.

The Postdoctoral Fellow will be expected to make independent and rapid progress.
Those interested are encouraged to apply to the Raman Post-doc program at IISc
(https://iisc.ac.in/post-docs/) or the ICTS post-doctoral fellowship program
(https://www.icts.res.in/academic/postdoctoral-fellowships). These fellowships are highly
competitive and only outstanding candidates will be considered.

For informal queries on the position and the project, contact Dr Sourabh S. Diwan
(sdiwan@iisc.ac.in) / Prof Rama Govindarajan (rama@icts.res.in).
