Research Fellow in Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics, University of Leeds, UK

We are looking for a Research Fellow to join our Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) funded project, which will investigate tidal flows in stars and giant planets, with the goal to understand the mechanisms of tidal dissipation in convective regions. The project will involve performing hydrodynamical simulations to study tidal flows in spherical and ellipsoidal geometries using one or more existing codes (including Nek5000). The results from these simulations will be applied to interpret current observations of extrasolar planets and close binary stars, and to make predictions.

You will work in close contact with Dr Adrian Barker in the Department of Applied Mathematics, and you will join the Astrophysical and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics research group, which is one of the largest such groups in the world. This project will strongly complement and benefit from other STFC-funded projects at Leeds, such as those in planetary and stellar dynamos. The post will be available from 1stApril 2018, but the start date is flexible and could be delayed up until 1st October 2018 at the latest.

You will have a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. Astrophysics, Applied Mathematics, Computational Fluid Dynamics or Planetary Sciences), together with computational experience. You will also have the ability to conduct independent research and a developing track record of publications in international journals. In addition, you will have excellent communication, planning and team working skills.

To explore the post further or for any queries you may have, please contact:
