We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to conduct numerical and analytical studies of elastic turbulence.

The opportunity:

The post is for a post-doctoral researcher in the field of physics of complex fluids at the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Edinburgh. The successful applicant will use analytical and numerical techniques to study the phenomenon of elastic turbulence – chaotic motion exhibited by flows of polymer solutions at negligible inertia. The position is for 3 years; the successful applicant will be supervised by Prof. Alexander Morozov.

For informal enquiries contact: Prof Alexander Morozov amorozov@ed.ac.uk.

Your skills and attributes for success:

  • A PhD in Physics, Applied Mathematics, or Chemical/Mechanical Engineering
  • A proven track record in fluid dynamics of Newtonian/complex fluids
  • Previous experience with High-Performance Computing will be advantageous
  • Track record in transition to turbulence, coherent structures, dynamical systems and understanding of spectral methods will be advantageous.
