An exciting new research position for a Postdoctoral Research Associate is now available in a project funded by the Australian Research Council to study transport mechanisms driven by temperature gradients in the near shore regions of lakes and reservoirs.
As the school is strengthening its research and teaching capabilities in the area of fluids/environmental engineering, this is an opportunity for individuals to expand on their pre-existing research findings or to start a new research career.
You will join the strong fluids research group headed by Professor John Patterson and will be required to undertake research into buoyancy driven flows and publish the outcomes in the refereed literature. Your previous coverage in experimental or theoretical fluid mechanics will be highly regarded so as to complement the group’s existing expertise in computational fluid dynamics.
Applicants should demonstrate outstanding research potential or experience, with a PhD in engineering, applied mechanics, applied mathematics, physics or a related area in a topic relevant to fluid mechanics research and with experience in experimental modeling as a first preference or theoretical analysis. Demonstrated ability to publish research outcomes in high-quality international journals is also an essential criterion. Experience in computational fluid dynamics, stability analyses and small scale environmental flows will be well regarded.
The position is full-time fixed-term for two years subject to completion of a satisfactory probation and confirmation period for new appointees. Further offer of up to one year may be available subject to performance, funding and need. Membership of a University approved superannuation scheme is a condition of appointment.
Remuneration package: $92K pa including a base salary range $78K pa, leave loading and up to 17% employer’s contribution to superannuation. Visa sponsorship and some assistance towards relocation expenses may be available if required.
