The successful candidate will employ state-of-the-art experimental diagnostics for the interrogation of complex flow and transport phenomena and/or implement novel, mathematically-sound algorithms for high-fidelity numerical simulations or dynamical-systems based reduced-order modeling. Specific topics of interest include but are not limited to environmental fluid mechanics, fluid dynamics of renewable energy conversion processes, dynamical systems approaches to turbulence, fluid dynamics of physical, chemical, and biological processes, fluid-structure interactions, and multiphase and particle-laden flows.

Additional Job Information

The ME Department at UNH has built a strong reputation for performing research in the fundamental physics of fluid flows and boasts access to state-of-the art laboratories and field-based facilities. Candidates who can leverage these unique resources and/or engage in interdisciplinary collaborations across campus will be viewed especially favorably. Opportunities for collaborative engagement include the UNH Integrated Applied Mathematics doctoral program, School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering, Center for Sustainable Seafood Systems, and the Atlantic Marine Energy Center.

The successful candidate is expected to (1) establish and maintain a productive level of high-quality scholarly work; (2) excel as a teacher at both the undergraduate and graduate levels; (3) successfully mentor graduate research students; and (4) participate in Department, College and University service activities.
