PostDoc Position at Universidad de Santiago de Chile, advisor M. CruchagaJob

The Scientific Research Projects Management Department of the Vice
Presidency of Research, Development and Innovation (DICYT-VRID) at
Universidad de Santiago de Chile, is opening a position for a post-doctoral
grant. Candidates should perform Computational Fluid Fechanics research in
the field of fluid-solid interaction including free surface flow problems.
In particular, modelling in parallel architecture will be developed. The
research activities are involved in an on-going project supported by
Chilean Council for Scientific and Technological Research (CONICYT- project
FONDECYT 1130278) leader by Marcela Cruchaga. In this context, the project
offers collaboration with other research teams in foreign countries.
Moreover, the successful applicant, according to their own interest, could
develop experimental skills and work nearby under-graduate students in
collaborative tasks.

The responsibilities of the position include successful research in the
field of Computational Fluid Mechanics in terms of computational methods
and algorithms in parallel architecture as well as verification and
validation of the numerical formultaion proposed. The research activity
will be valuable in a number of prepared research articles, a minimum of
one accepted research article at the end of the postdoctoral stage is

The postdoc position is for one year extensible to two or three years. The
extension is restrictive to present a candidature to the a Postoctoral
Fellowship supported by CONICYT as well as to the Academic Insertion
Program offered by the same organization. In particular this last Program
gives to the candidate the possibility to get a formal academic position at

Desired skills and experience

Engineers, Applied Physicists or Mathematicians with a PhD in Computational
Fluid Mechanics or related areas are invited to apply for this position.
The applicant should have expertise in the area including familiarity with
