IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

PhD Studentship in fluid mechanics, Norway

A PhD position is available  in the Department of Energy and Process Engineering in the Fluid Mechanics research group at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

The aim of the research project is to improve our understanding of turbulent sprays formed by waves impacting on structures in arctic conditions which leads to a rapid build up of ice that can threaten the integrity and safety of structures. The research project will focus on fundamental aspects of turbulence, sprays and their interaction. The project involves two novel lines of work: i) developing a new method to measure water sprays based on computed tomography which involves numerical and theoretical work, and ii) measuring the properties of water sprays generated for different conditions.

The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate a strong background in funda-mental fluid mechanics up to Master's degree level or equivalent in a relevant Engineer-ing discipline, Physics or Applied Mathematics. They should be enthusiastic and highly motivated and be willing to work both independently and with other researchers in the group. Candidates with research experience in both advanced numerical methods and measurements of turbulent flows will be considered to have a strong advantage. A strong proficiency in Matlab (or Maple) is essential.
