Job ID: 655512
Company: Sandia National Laboratories
Location: Livermore, CA
Job Title:Postdoctoral Appointee in Exascale Combustion DNS


The Post-Doctoral Appointee Program is designed to recruit outstanding Ph.D. applicants to assist a line organization in meeting its mission objectives and to provide a professional technical work environment for the employee. The Ph.D. must have been conferred within one to five years prior to employment. These assignments are for a one-year period, with the option at management?s discretion to serve no more than five additional one-year assignments.

We seek to hire a postdoctoral researcher who will develop software for parallel direct numerical simulation and hybrid direct numerical simulation and large-eddy simulation of turbulent reacting flows coupled with fuel spray, soot formation, and thermal radiation over nontrivial geometry on exascale computing platforms. The postdoc will be working as part of a multi-disciplinary team both within Sandia and with external collaborators. Research success is expected to result in impactful publications in major scientific journals and widespread recognition within the international scientific research community, as well as relevant contributions to the long-term energy and environmental and high performance computing mission objectives of the U.S. Department of Energy.


This position requires a PhD in engineering, computational sciences, physical sciences, or mathematics, with expertise in high-fidelity simulation of turbulent combustion and high-performance scientific computing. Strong verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work effectively as part of a research team are also required.


A strong background in numerical methods for adaptive mesh refinement and spray, soot, and radiation modeling is desirable.

Experimental and computational modeling studies of reacting flow phenomena relevant to combustion processes.
