Research Fellow in Computational Algorithms for Fluid-Structure Interaction

University of Leeds - School of Computing

Fixed-term until 30 September 2020 (cover for a colleague).

Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in the design and implementation of algorithms for computational science? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?

We are looking for a Research Fellow to contribute to continuing work on design, implementation, and validation of finite element models for fluid-structure interaction problems. The project will involve parallel implementation on high-performance computing architectures, such that large three-dimensional simulations can be undertaken. You will work closely with Dr Mark Walkley and Professor Peter Jimack from the Computational Science and Engineering research theme in the School of Computing.

You will have, or be about to complete, a PhD in Scientific Computing, Applied Mathematics, Engineering, or a closely allied discipline, with a strong background in designing and implementing numerical algorithms for fluid and solid mechanics applications. You will also have the ability to conduct independent research and a developing track record of publications in international journals. In addition, you will have excellent communication, planning, and team working skills.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact:
Dr Mark Walkley, Lecturer in Computing
Tel: +44 (0)113 343 5684 or email:

Please note that the University is closed for the Christmas break from Thursday 21st December 2017 and reopens on Tuesday 2nd January 2018. We are therefore unable to respond to any queries relating to your application during this time.
