The Department of Ocean Engineering at the University of Rhode Island is looking for creative, enthusiastic, and self-motivated research assistant candidates that are experienced with computational fluid dynamics modeling, programming, and fluid mechanics. Candidates will participate in the development of several computational fluid dynamics modeling tools including using the Lattice-Boltzmann Method (LBM) and boundary element method (BEM) for application to floating body dynamics problems in an ocean environment. A background in engineering with experience in computational modeling is required. To be considered for this position, candidates must be a U.S. person (U.S. citizen or permanent resident). PhD candidates with previous Master’s experience or postdoctoral candidates are preferred. The desired start date for this position is January 2020.
If you are interested in this position, please contact Professor Stephan Grilli (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Professor Jason Dahl (email@example.com).
