Main Purpose of the Post
For this position, the Laboratory is seeking the applicant with a strong research track record in hydraulic/coastal/offshore engineering with specific interest in numerical modeling. The successful applicant will be expected to work in Prof. Pengzhi Lin’s Research Group and his Email: cvelinpz@126.com and website:  http://cwrh.scu.edu.cn/home/teacher/details/id/10.html.
Main Duties
1.To produce excellent research in line with the Laboratory's strategy;
2.To provide research assistance to junior researchers (including Doctoral students);
To perform other acadmic duties assigned by the Laboratory.

Person Specification
1.First degree in  an Engineering or physical science discipline.
2.PhD or equivalent degree in a topic closely related to hydraulic, coastal and ocean engineering.
3.Expertise area: Computational fluid dynamics.
Proven record of publications in peer-reviewed international journals

Background
Authorized by National Planning Board (NPB) in May 1988, the State Key Laboratory of Hydraulics and Mountain River Engineering became the first approved State Key Laboratory in hydraulic engineering field in China. The discipline of Hydraulics and River Dynamics was approved firstly as the state key disciplines of hydraulics in China in 1988. Up to now, the Laboratory has three state key disciplines (Hydraulics and River Dynamics, geotechnical engineering and solid mechanics). The overall goal of the laboratory can be summarized as the following three points: (1) to construct world-class academic platform for engineering hydraulics and mountain river field; (2) to promote our technological innovation, personnel training and academic exchanges in the Hydraulics and Mountain River area in China; (3) to support water conservancy and hydropower project construction and disaster prevention in mountain river.
