The "Computational Fluid Dynamics: Modelling and
Simulation" Group at the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM)
in Bilbao, Spain, invites applications for a 2-years postdoctoral
position in mesoscopic modelling of particle aggregation and marine snow
The goal of this project is to use realistic
numerical models of particle aggregation to study how particle shape,
Brownian motion and the activity of microswimmers (i.e. algae and
bacteria) affect the aggregation rate and the formation of marine snow. We will approach this problem
from a fluid mechanics perspective and we will use the Rigid Multiblob
framework to build our models.
Applicants are expected to have a
Ph.D. in engineering, physics or applied mathematics. Candidates with a
strong scientific background in fluid dynamics at low Reynolds numbers
and experience in soft matter modelling are strongly encouraged to
