The City University of New York Graduate Physics Program – College of Staten Island (Department of Mathematics & Center for Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics and Computational Science) seeks applications for a competitively awarded postdoctoral fellowship from highly qualified candidates interested in multi-scale, multi-phase modeling of turbulent transport in the ocean environment. The successful candidate will join a multi-institutional team of researchers
working on hydro-carbon dispersion and transport in the Gulf of Mexico. The position is renewable yearly for an initial period of three years.
Qualifications: PhD in Applied Mathematics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Physical Oceanography or a closely related field (Physics, Atmospheric Sciences) is required. Experience with Large-Eddy-Simulations of turbulence, multi-phase flow modeling and/or geophysical fluid mechanics is required.
The research will involve both theoretical and large-scale computational modeling. Successful candidates will be expected to interact with researchers at the University of Miami and Florida State University. Funds for extended collaborative travel to these institutions are available. Work will begin in summer 2012 and applicants should be able to participate at that time.
