Job Title:

Post-doctoral fellow in Physics/Mechanical Engineering

Job Description:

 Dynaflow is pleased to offer a two-year (with an option for a third year) postdoctoral fellowship in physics / mechanical engineering on the subject of bubble dynamics.

Applicants should be doctoral graduates with strong interest and abilities in advanced research in fluid mechanics and acoustics. The subject of the fellowship is the study of the dynamics of bubbles resulting from partly contained underwater explosions and the resulting acoustic pressures .      

The study will involve design set-up and use of small-scale spark-generated bubbles.   These tests will provide visualization and measurement of the phenomena and will define conditions for computer simulations to address the questions using 3D codes developed at Dynaflow. Signal processing methods will be devised to extract the key characteristics of the signals. 

A strong background and interest in experimental and numerical methods and signal processing is required. Salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, plus all fringe benefits provided to full-time Dynaflow employees. The position is available immediately and could lead to permanent employment. 

   The work should result in publication in refereed journals. 

Specific questions about the fellowship should be addressed to:
Dr. Georges Chahine
