Post-doc Positions



A post-doctoral position is available with Professor Christine Hrenya in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder.   The project overview is given below.  Prior experience in computational modeling of solids flows is desired.

Appointment will be 1-2 years, and the start date is flexible.  If interested, email CV, phone numbers and email addresses for three references, and representative publications to Prof. Christine Hrenya at  Applicants are encouraged to apply by 15 February 2014, though later applications will be reviewed as needed.  The University of Colorado at Boulder is committed to diversity and equality in education and employment.

Flow Instabilities in Gas-Solid Systems

This NSF-funded research is focused on the prediction of clustering instabilities in gas-solid flows.  The postdoctoral researcher wil focus on DEM-based and continuum modeling of such flows, and will work in collaboration with our partners at Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO), DOE National Energy Technology Laboratory (Morgantown, WV), and University of Extremadura (Spain).  For more information on recent work, see Mitrano et al. (J. Fluid Mech., 2014) and Yin et al. (J. Fluid Mech., 2013).
