Research Associate - Analytical and Computational Modeling
North Carolina A & T State University


Date Posted Jul. 13, 2020
Title Research Associate - Analytical and Computational Modeling
University North Carolina A & T State University
Greensboro, NC, United States
Department Atmospheric Science
Application Deadline Open until filled
Position Start Date Available immediately
 
 
  • Research Scientist/Associate
  • Atmospheric Sciences
 
 

Primary Purpose of Position
Applications are invited for an NSF-funded research associate position in the area of analytical and computational modeling of turbulent multiphase flows with an application to a marine atmospheric boundary layer laden with evaporating sea spray. In-depth understanding and accurate modeling of the interaction between ocean spray and a turbulent flow under high-wind conditions is essential for improving forecast accuracy of intensity of hurricanes and severe storms.

The research project will involve developing and implementation of a mathematical and computational model of a marine atmospheric boundary layer laden with evaporating sea spray. The model will enable us to accurately describe the effect of ocean spray on the air-sea exchange of momentum, heat and moisture in high-wind condition of a tropical cyclone.

Primary Function of Organizational Unit
North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University is an 1890 land-grant doctoral research university dedicated to learning, discovery, and community engagement.

Minimum Requirements
- Ph.D. Degree either in Atmospheric Sciences, Applied Mathematics,
Physics, Engineering or other relevant field.
- prior experience in theoretical and computational fluid dynamics,
turbulence, multiphase flows, and mathematical and CFD modeling.
- hands-on background in numerical methods and programming skills in
matlab and/or fortran90.

Preferred Years Experience, Skills, Training, Education
Experience with symbolic algebra (e.g. Mathematica, Maple) would be
a plus
