Dear Colleagues,

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 formation.

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 apply.

Deadline: July 26th 2019, 14:00 CET (UTC+1) .
