The call will open the 13 and close the 27 of October.
We are looking for a PhD student to work on the topic of numerical simulation of atmospheric flows for wind-energy applications. The focus will be microscale-mesoscale coupling, surface and subgrid-scale models for large-eddy simulations, and implementation for high-performance computing.
The applicant is expected to have a master's degree in engineering, geosciences, physics, mathematics, or a related field. A good knowledge in classical mechanics, in particular fluid mechanics is required. Basic knowledge of numerical analysis and statistical methods is of advantage. Good skills in programming and computer science will be regarded very favourably, since the applicant will work with large-scale computing systems (unix or GNU/linux OS, parallel computing). The working language is English.
The PhD student will be part of a collaborative initiative between the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) that has been recently funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and University (project title "Turbulence and large coherent structures in the atmospheric boundary layer: Fundamental aspects for parametrizations of cloud formation and for wind-energy applications" in the 2019 call for projects i+D+i). The PhD position is fully funded with a FPI scholarship for 4 years, tentatively starting in September 2021. The application period is from 13th October 2020 to 27th October 2020 and the application should be submitted electronically as described in the following website
