    The High-speed Aerodynamics and Propulsion Laboratory at the University of Maryland, College Park has an anticipated open post-doctoral position in high-speed flow separation problems, especially pertaining to atmospheric meteoroid fragmentation. The position will involve conducting free-flight experiments in a hypersonic wind tunnel and using high-speed visualization and image-processing techniques to investigate the separation behavior of multi-body clusters. Some low-order modeling and running of related CFD simulations may also be involved. The applicant will be expected to plan and run experiments (including tunnel and diagnostic operation), analyze the gathered data, and summarize it in reports and scholarly publications. The appointment will be in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, full-time, for at least one year, with the possibility of renewals pending satisfactory performance and funding. Remuneration will be competitive and based on qualifications

    The expected start date is February 2022, contingent upon funding approval.
