Job purpose and duties:

The main purpose of the post is to carry out research in the context of the new MetOffice Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) grant to develop an “Indoor Air Quality Emissions & Modelling System (IAQ-EMS)”. The University of Birmingham will – with collaborators at University of Reading, Cranfield and UC Irvine – develop ambitious software and data tools to advance the UK’s capacity for indoor air quality modelling, for estimation of emissions and exposure. This post focusses on Work Package 3, the development of a computational fluid dynamics tool for indoor spaces.

The successful candidate will be using an in-house LES code to model air flow in indoor spaces, including interactions with other rooms and outdoors, working in collaboration with the developing team of such code, Multiflow3D. The researcher will be able to understand the architecture of a parallel CFD code, run it in in HPC environments such as ARCHER2. They will be also capable of further developing some capabilities of the code, including the implementation of some basic chemical reactions between different species within the simulations.

Skills/Experience:

  • Required: Advanced user of Computational Fluid Dynamics software.
  • Required: Experience as code developer in any of the programming languages mentioned below.
  • Required: basic knowledge of FORTRAN programming language and at least one of the following languages: MATLAB, Python, C/C++/C#.
  • Desirable: prior experience with MPI-based codes, Linux environments and Tecplot360 post-processing tools.
  • Evidence of strong presentation and technical writing skills as well as ability to communicate effectively.
  • Ability to work within multidisciplinary teams and to work independently using own initiative, planning, and prioritising to meet deadlines
  • Will have, or be close to completion of a PhD in research areas related to computational fluid dynamics (primary) and air quality/wind engineering (secondary).
